Hey all....

Just wondering...

Who uses that less than 5% rule along with Xenical? I know ali does, but I was never told this and don't? I'm just wondering if I am doing it wrong?

I weigh out my foodper fat content -

eg -

(I'll use my most unhealthy meal I eat sometimes LOL)

100g's of oven chips = 6.4g's of fat
Venison Grill steak - 3.2g's o fat (done on George Foreman)
Beans (not too sure) think its 1.1g's per half a tin
Slice of bread - 0.9g's
Thin spread of low fat butter 0.8g's

So that's roughly around 12g's of fat

That's how I work mine out....

I do buy mince that is less than 5% fat andcheeseand garlic herb spread which isless than 5% fat but not all my food is and I've lost 20lb so far...

I know that they say a general rule of the thumb for EVERYONE is that food that is good for you is 5% fat or less though..

Others oppinion more than welcome!

Hi Kaymarie
I wasn't told about it either, so it's just really what I've heard here online. My doctor just told me to keep the fat down!!

You've done really well so far. Good for you.

Hi KayMarie,

I haven`t started it yet, So was going on what I had read here and was going to apply the less than 5% fat per meal rule x

I think I will try to use the no more than 5% fat rule in future, it can only help more by the sounds of it.

I need to book to get back to doctors anyway, I haven't lost as much as last month, so i'm hoping they don't take me off them. 20lb loss altogether should hopefully sway them...
