    Hiya Lads

    Just started Xenical last Thurs.
    Going very well. No side effects but am eating very little fat.

    Started walking briskly for an hour every day and just ordered that '30 Day Shred' DVD!

    Thanks lads!

    Just a quick question.

    I used to use a truck load of butter but now use a light spread of Olive Gold from Lidl. Is this ok?

    As long as you use tiny amount. Look at the container to see how much fat each ml/g has and then work out how much you cab actually have. To be honest if you can do without it's better because spread is just fat basically.

    Like ellie said you would be better off if you could do with out it, but if not i'm sure a scraping would be ok!

    Ah, that's great so - we'll be able to help each other along!

    I've given up white bread but do have brown or wholemeal with a limit of 2, if any a day.

    Wok Noddles
    Onion
    Peppers
    Sweetcorn
    Amoy Black Bean Sauce (1.2g per 100)

    and ..... OLIVE OIL......:wave_cry:

    i shouldnt think a little bit for stir-frying would be a problem. i am loving my fitness pal but according to it i am always way under my daily allowance. really looking forward to my weigh in now :D might book in with dr next week and do a 2 week check instead of a month

    I used olive oil in my stir fry last week and didn't have any 'problems'

    Instead of butter try a little bit of very low fat cream cheese, thats what I've been doing.

    Oh and hello btw :)
