Are you ready for the FCS 10g Fat Challenge?

FCS Awareness Day 2019

People with FCS are recommended to eat less than 20g fat per day, restrict simple sugars and avoid alcohol.  Many patients find that to avoid the symptoms of FCS, or to reduce their triglyceride levels,  they need to eat less than 10g fat per day.

Symptoms of the condition include pancreatitis, abdominal pain – often severe and fatigue.  Please see the pages Symptoms and More Symptoms for more information about the impact of FCS,

About FCS  gives a more detailed description of FCS.   Living with FCS  gives information about how to approach living with FCS.

For some patients, pancreatitis, abdominal pain and fatigue is a constant in their lives despite these severe restrictions.

Get a taster of what it’s like to eat less than 10g fat for the day and help us to raise awareness of how this impacts your life by telling us how you coped.  #ActionFCS #FCSawarenessday #FCS10gChallenge

You’ll also help us to feel less isolated and that our daily experience is more understood.

To help you we have developed a handy table of foods you can eat and foods to avoid and some suggestions of what you might eat during the day.   You can print out both sheets as a PDF.

Eating less that 10g fat per day is not an exact science, you will need to work out the fat content of what you are eating as you go along.

Warning:  Eating out can be a nightmare.  Please remember to pre-plan so you’re not left hungry!

Good luck!

Please tweet your experiences to @LpldAlliance  #ActionFCS  #FCSawarenessday #FCS10gFatChallenge  #LPLD  and please post on social media and to our Facebook page
