    Hey everyone.
    I was prescribed xenical today,I will be starting it on sunday as thats my 'start day' for things!
    I said in my other thread Id have loads of questions....sorry if im bugging anyone!

    Ive been reading lots of other peoples posts on here and a fave for alot of you seems to be muller light yogurts.
    Problem is,Im a vegetarian and these yogurts have gelatine in them (I check everytime I go shopping!)
    So does anyone eat any other low fat yogurts that are ok to eat while on xenical?
    Im just getting a shopping list together and am looking for ideas.
    I shop at tescos if thats any help.

    Also I like sugar free jelly and assume that would be ok to eat. But problem again,it has gelatine in it.
    I used to get sugar free jelly that was suitable for vegetarians but now I cant find it anywhere :cry:
    Does anyone know where I can get it from? Online or anything?

    And one other thing
    Are there any other low fat desserts that I can put on my shopping list. I do like sweet things but obv wont be able to scoff chocolate anymore! So just looking for ideas.

    Thank you

    I've started eating the shape say fuller for longer yoghurts and i can't see any gelatine in the ingredients list

    I was also eating the weightwatchers fruit layered fromage frais but I don't know if there was gelatine or not.

    Hi, I keep a selection of Weight Watcher deserts in my freezer. They are in the 5g rule so should be OK and they are great as a treat.

    maybe you could try and speak to your local tesco and see if the do the geletine free jelly or if they could get it in for you...

    I was supposed to be going to tescos today to have a look for jelly and the weight watcher desserts but the stupid snow has put a stop to that!
    Coz apparently tesco have their own brand jelly that is suitable for vegetarians,I hope so.

    I have found a huuuge bag of jelly crystals (makes upto 20litres of jelly!) that is suitable for vegetarians so I may try that :) You obv dont have to use it all at once!

    I didn't know bout the WW desserts though so thanks for that :)
