My first 3 days I experienced my first side effect but in the 8 days I've been on it I noticed if I don't eat fatty foods I won't get the bad side effects. Another study carried out aimed to show that by adding a weight-reducing agent such as Xenical alongside to lifestyle changes, the likelihood of type 2 diabetes would be severely lowered compared to normal weight loss efforts.
My GP warned me of the side effects and advised against eating fatty foods but she did not tell me that I should only aim to eat 3g of fat in each I was very scared and I stopped taking Xenical. I feel great on it I thought you were supposed to avoid fatty food and eat healthy which I am going.
With no diet change, I lost a few pounds using Alli. Last reply 23 June at Like I'm taking a placebo. I have been exercising and eating healthy for the past two months with only minimal weight loss. I had my weigh in the other day and I was sooo surprised and chuffed that I had lost 9kg in about 6 weeks. Hi I have been on Orlistat for 3 months now.
Enough to throw out some too big clothing.
I like that Xenical reduced my appetite, however I need to stay home most of the time because I have loose stool mostly everyday. Orlistat has been extensively studied over many clinical trials. She said that if she ate a fatty meal then at some point she would see that greasy oily leakage that the orlistat stopped from being absorbed into her body. Just over 3 weeks since I started taking orlistat and I am now a stone 14 lbs lighter!
Last reply 23 August at It acts to stop fat from your daily calorie intake from being absorbed into the body. How much weight will I lose with Orlistat?
How do I know if I am obese or overweight?
I am having over night low fat museli with I take one in morning with breakfast and one in evening with evening meal. Your pharmacist will also give you advice on an appropriate diet - a low-calorie and low-fat diet. Today is the 1st day I've had any side effects which aren't really that bad. I also had white coloured stools which can indicate liver damage which is one of the side effects. I am trying to avoid oily foods and I have been eating more green leafy vegetables.
I am pleased with the product and results to date.
