    Diet:
    low fat/cal + xenical
    I just started with the xenical this morning and touch wood not had any symptoms as of yet, and going to be trying hard to keep the fat down wherever possible, have switched to skimmed milk because i drink loads of the stuff and also moving over to low fat spreads, although i don't really use much of that tbh

    so, today i have eaten

    breakfast:
    1 medium banana, low fat yoghurts and a toasted teacake scraped with l.f.s

    lunch:
    chicken and bacon deli sandwich at mcd (work there) no mayo and a fruit bag

    tea:
    ham salad sandwich and another yoghurt with raspberries and blackberries

    also have a go ahead wafer biscuit to eat when i get out of bath with a cuppa

    haven't done any formal exercise today but have been on feet all day at work, i work in the dining area so spend all day running round clearing tables and sweeping up etc etc

    at the moment i am 19st 10 :cry: and as an interim measure would like to get down to 15st but will be happy to take it a stone at a time so my first goal is to be 19 stone and see where it goes from there

    my main food weaknesses are

    crisps, crisps and more crisps and also rather fond of pastry so going to be difficult to avoid but i am sure my knees and ankles will thank me for this

    Good luck with the xenical, i am sure you will do fine once you stick to the low fat, and you will not experience any side effects. I have had the side effects a couple of times, from eating the wrong type of food!! not good oops!! You will get loads of support on here, everyone is great!!!

    good morning everyone yesterday was not a good day as i had some virally thing and felt too sick to eat had one bowl of tomato soup so left off the xenical

    have found the perfect xenical snack soreen (only if you like it without lashings of butter lol)0.5g fat per 100g and 0.1g of fat per 1/8 a loaf so perfect for breakfast for me because i adore the stuff especially with a banana on the side... so thats what i had for breakfast this morning... planning on having a very lean gammon round with pineapple, baked potato and mixed veg and probably have some soup at teatime back to work tomorrow can anybody point me in the direction of something quick and non frozen that i can pop in for my lunch at work can't keep eating chicken deli sandwiches lovely though they are lol

    I think most of us get the night time munchies and my cure is a Cup a soup with an Oxo or half a stock cube and a sprinkle of ground black pepper, in them to give some taste, works great for whenever I feel peckish as I find something hot is more satisfying than cold.
