    Hi & welcome back! I am sure you can do it, with each others support I believe we all can, I have found the ladies on here amazing since I started my xen journey 6 weeks ago tomorrow. Why not join the Christmas Challenge stickie, give yourself something to work to, I know its only 5 weeks but might still help to keep you on track.... Good Luck with your journey, onwards & downwards xx

    People tend to write in their diaries what they have, I did for the first couple of weeks then stopped as I use myfitnesspal & its all documented in there... If you post in the ho ho ho christmas challenge sticky Violet will add you when she is next on..... I have found it really keeps me on track especially with my ticker cos I can see how close I am to getting where I wanted to be.....

    Hi Guys,

    I love reading all of your stories and relating to them. I am starting with xenical next week and trying to understand it fully first. This might seem a bit daft but I am a bit confused with the 15g of fat per meal. I picked up a pre packaged microwave burger in the shop and it had 11g of fat in it...surely this is bad but fits within the 15g per meal rules? Has anyone got a shopping list or food diary to share, im struggling on ideas. I was thinking, muller light and a cereal bar for breakfast. Tuna pasta for lunch/ cripsbread and ham and cucumber. Dinner. meat, potatoes and veg...but thats all I have. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanksx

    Hi
    The rule is 5g per 100g and 15g per meal 45g per day

    Use fry light cooking spray when cooking,
    Skimmed milk in cereal, loads of water 2+ l a day

    Try using myfitnesspal.com to work out your cal per meal, it is also a phone app that's free. will also help work out how many cals a day you need to be eating.

    But it's the 15g per 100g that's the most important thing to look at first.

    It doesn't matter if what you choose to eat says 11g of fat . That is per portion size. If you were to see the fat per 100g of tour burger it probably said something like 32g of fat per 100g which is def out of the xen rules.

    Portion sizes vary a lot which is why the 100g rule is applied as it is a common denominator and easy to work out.
