    Hi folks,

    My Mum went to get the tablets today as she wants to lose weight since stopping smoking. She is 62 years old and am really proud of her for stopping :) Now the nurse told her no more than 3g/100g and 67g of fat per day, is this because of her age do you think?

    Doesn't sound right to me purely because I struggle to get 30-45 grams with 5gs/100! So I don't know how she'd manage to eat that much with so little in each thing. If tht makes sense? Lol

    Your mum would have to eat a lot of food under 3% to eat 67 grams per day - would have to graze all day! Also very restictive.

    If you look in the box, xenical says no more the 45g as the tablets cant cope with it. Think your mum's nurse has got the wrong end of the stick. Ignoring the fact that i was told to just avoid fat and that the less i had the bigger the weight loss. My dr would be happy if i had 10g of fat a day! She'd take me off them if i had 60g+ a day.
