    Hi
    I'm due to start the inch loss plan from home next week and i've been looking at doing my shopping ready but as I shop online with Tescos i'm struggling with the fat % content on food items. I don't know what I should be looking at.
    For example
    Birds Eye healthy options fish pie
    on the content page it lists it as 265 calories and 5g of fat which =7% but when i used these numbers in a food fat percentage calculator it says its 16% fat - Help, am i doing something wrong or should i not be going by the labels?
    The fat percentage calculator i'm using is this one Copy of Food fat percentage calculator - Num Sum

    Thanks
    Elaine

    For the fat content you need to look at the amount per 100g.

    thanks for the link, so am i always looking at the grams of fat in 100g? in the above example it was 1.4g Does that mean if its 5g or under its ok to eat?:confused: Sorry, i'm being a bit thick but i've only everdone slimming world before and theres no counting in that. Found i ate to much with SW though so looking forward to starting this, though i'm an exercise virgin so that maybe the hard part :eek:

    Yes, anything under 5g per 100g is fine to eat :)
