    Always Read the Label

    There are certain types of food that tend to be high in fat, so it is a good idea to minimise the amounts of these ‘problem foods’ in your diet. They include: cheese, full-fat milk, pastries cakes, take-away food, fast food; and fatty red meat. You should replace these foods with low-fat alternatives like: fruit, vegetables, fish, lean meat, and cereals.

    In addition to this, you should read the label on foods to find out how much fat they contain. Make sure you look at the fat content per 100g, this will make it easier to compare foods that come in different sizes and weights.

    Try to select foods that contain less than 5g of fat per 100g.

    In addition to watching the fat, you should aim to reduce the sugar and salt content in your diet as well as increase your fibre intake. You will find all this information on the label, or by looking online.

    On Xenical site it tells you not to go over 45g fat per day ...look at the link....

    Xenical - What is Xenical?

    and it 10g per 100g on Xenical site ...here is the link ....Xenical - Nutrition and Activity Centre - Healthy Eating Tips


    Other hot tips

    Try not to skip breakfast - it's the most important meal of the day.
    Eating three regular meals throughout the day prevents hunger and helps to control weight.
    Read food labels - as a general rule, select prepared foods with less than 10g fat per 100g food.
    Aim for less than 45g fat per day if using Xenical.
    Serve smaller portions of food on your plate.
    Avoid eating on the run - sit down when you eat.
    Chew each mouthful properly.
    Try to avoid second helpings, but if you are still hungry, have more salad and / or vegetables (without dressing or sauces).
    Limit fats, oils, sweets, salt and alcohol.
    Enjoy your food.
