Question: I've stared Alli, and you have to have a lot more fat than I usually have but less calories. I'm having a hard time with their menus as it's mostly foods I am not interested in. Does anyone have any reccomendations for simple meals high in fat low in calories? Yes you are supposed to consume at least 17 grams of fat in each meal, but keep under 1200 calories for the day. It came with many books and an online resource that all say if you do not consume enough fat it will not work.

Do NOT ingest more fat on Alli. That would be bad... really, really bad. The point of Alli is to trap the fat cells you eat and expel them through (to put it bluntly) your poop. If you consume lots of fat while on Alli it will all be expelled. And fat, which is a greasy, oily substance, is what will be coming out. Alli actually warns against high fat consumption while on their product because it will cause you to have loose bowels (their very nice way of saying you will s*** your pants). Two of the women in my office have been on Alli and both now have horror stories about how they s*** their pants in public because they thought of Alli as a magic bullet and ate high fat foods. About high-fat , low-calorie meals... they don't exist. While a gram of carbs or protein is 4 calories, a gram of fat is 9 calories. So high fat foods will always have high calories, at least double of what other carb and protein foods will have. There are healthy fats, such as those in avocados, olives, and nuts, but they are also high calorie becuase of their high fat content. ::edit:: It's not hard to get 17g fat per meal. One avocado has 22g of fat, and a handfull of walnuts is about 17 grams of fat.

High protein foods that are not meat: Dairy - don't know if you eat/drink dairy products: milk eggs cheese cottage cheese Non-Dairy: peanut butter nuts - walnuts, pecans, almonds (especially), pistachios beans & lentils (especially kidney beans and garbanzo beans (chickpeas)) bananas corn green beans asparagus sweet potatoes spinach Low Carbs & Fats: apples grapes strawberries blueberries melons - cantelope especially air popped popcorn - with NOTHING on it sweet potatoes brown rice whole wheat pastas High Sodium: I can really only think of junk foods in this section: chips french fries popcorn - with salt and butter on it (airpopped is zero sodium) pizza canned foods premade frozen meals pickles canned soups

Nuts have good protein, as do beans and soy. all have low crabs and fat. No idea why you would want more sodium unless you have low blood pressure or various forms of cramps in your joints. but if you do, hell just salt your food. salt ha tons of it as does soy sauce. All in all sodium gets a bad rap. Heck with out salt life as we know it would cease to exist. Though most foods have natural as well as added sodium so that happening is near impossible

Are you sure? I thought I heard that on Alli you have to really cut the fat (or there are some unpleasant side effects). Anyway - fat translates to more calories i.e., high fat and low calories wouldn't make sense. Eat lean protiens (chicken, fish)

Since I started to work out I was looking for a good weight loss product (I only wanted something 100% natural). I was on a diet but I felt that I needed a little "help" so I decided to try this great product and I had fantastic results. You can check their website at http://thin-fit.info , they give you a free trial and you only pay $4.95 shipping and handling.

First off it you are looking for a 6 pack a diet alone is not going to do it for most people. Although diet is the MOST important and they say abs are made in the kitchen not the gym. A good plan would include a workout designed to bulid lean muscle and include HIIT type of cardio. High Intensity Interval Training far surpasses any other kind of cardio you can do for this purpose. As for the fruits. If you are going for a six pack you do need to limit your intake of some of the sweeter substances. This type of question is where health and "slimming down" often differ. It is not always healthy to diet in a manner that will get you a six pack. It depends on the person and thier body. If a six pack is what you want, you want to limit the fruit and natural sugars you take in. Berries are probably the most important fruit and you shouldn't skip them. Also why do you want a 6 pack as opposed to just a slim flat stomach? I've always felt that 6 packs on girls just look weird and are not attractive, while a slim stomach that is just smooth is very hot. I know lots of guys who do agree and think this way. As for nutritional information I would certainly reccomend you pick up some nutrition books. A good place to start is Eat Drink and be Healthy, the Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating. If you really want to go for a 6 pack, you need to learn about proper nutrition yourself and how it affects your body. Go for fat free AND sugar free substitutes. Actually with your goal you are going to have to avoid empty calories and maximize what you take in so the type of foods that would have fat and sugar free options should be avoided. There are still some you can't like "skim milk". (calcium from veggies isn't absorbed as well)
