I started yesterday and am too scared to eat anything just incase the dreaded orange oil. What do most of you guys eat!? I have so much to lose it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel! x
Hi There, I'm really struggling to get my head around this!! I understand the less than 5gm per 100gm part, as this is clearly on the labels, however how do you tell how many gms of fat you're having over a meal? I was looking to do a spag bol tonight using lean steak mince, however the label states 14.5gm fat per 125gm so should I be steering clear of this? I'm nearly understanding it all I promise! ;-)Day 4 and feeling great. I can tell I've lost weight already (especially in my face). I haven't had any awful side effects and am eating well. For the first time in many years, I am eating 3 regular meals a day and feel that I already am finally getting a healthy attitude to eating. And realising how terrible my eating habits have been.
Someone posted that if you do eat a low fat diet on Orlistat, it won't work. I don't think that this right. You have to stick to eating low fat to avoid side effects but most of the fat that you do eat passes out of the body. Is this right? I'm not eating anything with more that 5g of fat per 100g and no more than 40g of fat a day with no more that 15g of fat per meal. Is this right? Obviously you would lose weight on a diet like this without Orlistat but with it, you lose more. Can someone clear this up for me please?
I think that Orlilstat is helping me stick to this diet as I'm too scared to eat more fat than I should!
