Losing those fat deposits

I followed her diet years ago (yep i have tried them all LOl!!) and used to go to a class which had exercise built into it which is a great idea. I remember the 5g rule thing from then although I'm pretty positive her rule was 5g of saturated fat meaning that the total fat could be slightly higher.

Not such a fat kat now :)
It was fat full stop as when she wrote the first hip and thigh book food labels didn't separate the two fats. we've come s long way since those days. Now she also advocates low GI as well

Is that not what you do anyway Kayee? I don't eat anything that's above it (well apart from Bisto gravy which is just slightly over)

It must have been another diet I am thinking of then :)


She goes for 5% per meal rather than per 100gs. I actually picked up her magazine today, forgot about it until just now, there are lots of recipes in it.

im kinda confused. i try to eat everything with less then 5g fat in it . but some weight watchers can be 7g fat in it. but i do try to tend to eat no more then 7g fat a day . is that what u mean? xx

The xen rule is 5g per 100g but looks like Rosemary Conley says no more than 5g in a meal which is hard. The WW meals are ok for the xen rules, I think even the lasagne just gets in ok

to be honest i dont follow all that 100g to every 5g. all i do is make sure that all my meals are not over 15g of fat. i wud never eat that much fat in a meal anyway. the most i would eat in a main dinner meal is 7 to 8g of fat . breakfast and lunch are all very low in fat . it works for me and i dont get the side effects lol x

I always stick to the no more than 5g of fat per 100g rule (except my Bisto gravy) & in a day I am normally between 15 & 20g of fat for the whole day....

I put the tates in a stone (tray) & spray them with about 16 sprays & then about 20 mins later 16 sprays again, it's 32 cals & 3.2g fat but so worth it.... I use the olive oil one & officially it's over the rules but I've been fine with it, I use it loads
