    Oh dear, when the doc gave me the pills he didn't mention anything about fat and calories, just said to avaid high fat, i asked for some advise and he said just follw a low fat diet and try not to comsume more than 15g of fat per meal. so this is what i have been doing reading every label and makeing sure it wasn't over 15g.
    well he never mentioned the 5% rule!!! this makes alot more sence as something contain 50% fat but may only be 10g per serving? has anyone else made this mistake.
    i have been trying to follow both now so hope to get better results, especially after 2 bad weekends!!!
    lets hope this works

    I just try and keep below 5-6g of fat per meal so if half a tin of something is 0.9 and i want the whole tin i will count double the fat.Its does take some getting used too..whatever you do , do not have butter , 10g contains 5g of fat , I have cut it out completley....Good luck ladies x

    what it is, is you have to check how many grams of fat per 100g are in EVERYTHING you eat. If its over 5grams it is possible u will get side effects and the tablets will not work to the full effect!

    hope thats cleared it up ladies!

    well, from what i can gather is if the fat is over 5g of fat per 100 grammes then its a nono. even if the whole meal is under the 15g of fat total.
    ie pre packed sandwich says 7.7g fat per sandwich
    but was 9g fat per 100g, its 9% fat so still stay clear.
    does this make sense???

    thanks
