    Stick to 5g of fat per 100g of product and don't consume more than 15g of fat per meal and you wont have tango effects.

    And take it half a stone at a time, it's easier that way.

    My first piece of advice is to go out and buy yourself the rosemary conley magazine or recipie book and or Gi diet book. These are filled with recipies which are family friendly and all within the 5% fat rule as that is the amount per 100g that her diet is based on.

    you can also look at the website and search for recipies there.

    As long as you do not use any fat to cook with and use extre lean mince beef and use skimmed milk in your mash then you can still eat things like shephrds pie.

    And to be honest eating low fat is the best healthy eating way for your whole family not just you. Just wathc your portion sizes.

    family meals....
    >cottage pie made with a bag of quorn mince and the smallest pack of VERY lean steak mince...they wont taste the difference
    >chilli con carne made the same way
    >chicken/veg risotto
    >tuna pasta bake
    >quorn sausage casserole
    hope that gives you a few ideas (quorn is great and very low fat) Good luck
