    Hey Chrissy welcome to minis.
    I took xenical last year and lost 4 stone in about 3 months :D Unfortunately the docs aren't so great with advice are they so yay that you found minis coz this is where I got all my info from!

    Just make sure you stick to the 5% rule.....ALL foods you eat have to be under 5g fat per 100g.
    And make sure you have no more than 45g fat per day, so 15g per meal.
    I know it sounds hard but once you get used to what you can/cant eat it becomes so easy.
    There is soooooooo much you can eat. Here are a few things I had while on xen.

    Breakfast-
    *Fruit and weight watchers yogurt
    *Cereal and milk
    *Toast with marmite
    *A vege (quorn) sausage sandwich using brown bread.

    Lunch-
    *Pasta salad and a small roll
    *Cup-a-soup with a small roll
    *Pitta bread filled with salad and an extra light cheese triangle (about the only cheese you can have while taking xenical)

    Dinner-
    *Quorn sausages, beans and Mccain oven chips (only chips within the rule)
    *Plain quorn and veggies
    *Vege spag bol made with quorn mince, passata, onions and wholewheat spaghetti
    *Sweet chilli quorn with rice and peas
    *Pitta bread pizza. Spread tomato puree and cheese triangle on pitta, add veggies and grill.

    For snacks-
    *Muller rices
    *Tesco potato thins (crisps)
    *Weight watchers hoola hoops
    *Weight watchers desserts (in the freezer at supermarkets)
    *Cucumber sticks with cheese triangle 'dip'

    I could go on forever!
    See you dont just have to stick to bowls of cereal :D

    Head on over to the xenical section of the forum and you'll get even more meal ideas.

    Good luck with your weight loss x

    Think you need more of a variety. Have a look at some of the threads in the xenical section for ideas.
