    Well I thought I better take the plunge and start Alli,I've had the pills for over a month but have been too scared to start as I've heard so many horror stories lol.

    Currently i'm 14st and wanna lose around 2-3st for my wedding which is next year in May.

    Any comments are welcome on my diary, the more help and the encouragement the better.

    Don't be scared, I'm sure you'll be fine :) I have Philadelphia Light all the time without any problems.
    According to the tub, it's 11.5g per 100g, which in theory is too high (you should be sticking to less than 5% per 100g) but I think you'll be fine.
    Say if you had a 30g serving (which is probably a high estimate), that contains 3.5g of fat, and only a third of that (1.2g) will be coming out the other end, if you catch my meaning! That's not a lot at all, relative to all your body's other waste matter.
    Nice subject eh? ;)

    Just realised that you're taking Alli rather than full strength Xenical. In which case, your fat limits are a bit higher than 5% (I think?) and the amount the tabets 'get rid of' must be less than a third.
    I'm no expert on Alli though, so someone will put me right :)

    I'm Mixing Alli with the RC plan, as its easier to stick to under the fat guideline.

    I'm doing a kick start week this week which i will follow for 2wks. Its 1200cal with under 12g fat for your main meals and 3g snack.

    Hopefully I shall see some result as I've failed at WW, Slimming world, celebrity slim etc.. :break_diet:

    Hi cheekysoph

    Well done so far !

    When I go out to pubs or restaurants I personally tend to stick to safe & trusted grilled chicken with salad.
    I always ask for the salad dressing to be served seperately, so I can control how much is on the salad.
    And watch for any sauces the chicken may be served with, again, ask for them to be served seperately....the oil-based sauces can play merry havoc, but a tiny amount added and controlled by you can make the chicken less bland.

    If my OH is having something super scrummy but strictly off limits...ie chips, dessert etc, then I allow myself *1* mouthful, or 3/4 chips as a treat :D So far so good, and I've got away with it.

    but you don't have to do what I do;)

    I think be guided by your sensible head. Avoid fried foods, and anything battered etc. Burgers, sausages etc are out. Some gravys/sauces can be heavy on the fat.
    Don't be afraid to ask for extra salad (undressed) or veggies...and fill up on those instead, if you think the meat part of the dish is potentially suspect (as in higher fat content than you should be having) just eat some of it.

    I'm only on week 4 of my Xenical journey...and still very much going by trial & error with new foods and/or meal situations...but I have a file bulging with good recipes I've found and printed off, both on here and elsewhere, or that I've taken out of cook books and modified (all with handwritten notes if I've done things differently etc)...and also a list of stuff from social events, takeaways etc that I've tried and been ok with. But we're all different..so what is ok for me, might not be ok for someone else.
