    Post Xenical info for New Starters!!..

    Just wanted to put up a thread that may help new starters understand the tablet more...

    The 5g rule?..

    You should stick to foods with 5g or less of fat per 100g of product , sounds hard but its surprising how many things you can actually eat.. and if your like me you will freak when you see just how much fat the foods you used to eat actually have *gulps* LOL.. and you should stick to 15g or less of fat in total per meal , again it sounds daunting but its not so hard.


    Side effects?

    People always asking about side effects and why there havent had any?? remember xenical isnt a miricle pill its just to keep you on the straight with your diets.. if your sticking to the above rule ^^^ then more then likely you wont get any side effects at all. but please remember everyones different and certain things may give you trouble when its fine for the next person.. im afraid most things are trial and error.... Salmon is a bad one for me because xenical cant determined bad oils from good so just gets rid =[.. lol.... and on the otherhand if your eating badly then you will have to deal with the side effects.


    How long does xenical take to work..

    Again everyones different but from my own and friends expieriences id say its approx 5-7 days to get into the body so dont be disheartened if you have just took your first pill and nothings happened .. good things come to those who wait =]


    EXERCISE??

    is it important? YES! .. ive noticed that people on xencial that are not as active lose between 1-3lbs a week but those that are more active loose more .... so even if its cleaning or walking exercise is a must with these pills.


    anything else just ask and ill try answer for you =D.


    So if your new to xencial or even just this forum welcome. Everyone on here are really supportive so please jump in and get to know us.. We have monthly challenges together that we do as a team.. we voted on the team name MICASA SUCASA. which means my home is your home.. so with that come jump in and chat =D.

    Let me get this straight...you've lost 5.1 stones on 4 months!! That is about 5 lbs a week. Amazing. What have you been eating? How many calories per day?
    Thanks so much!

    thanks for the post, its good to re-read the rules and make sure that you are following it properly.
    in regard to the exercise, how much do you do? im planning to start the gym tomorrow and do 1 hour cardio/fat burning and then 1 hour swimming before hitting the fire and ice room. i want to do this at least 5 times a week,
    do you think this will help me lose weight quicker and tone up,
    i dont know much about exercise and possible results
    wk 1......-3.5lbs
    wk 2......-2lbs
    wk 3......

    I would imagine the answer would be YES! Exercise plays a huge part. Swimming is great, I've gotten into it myself lately! Also started doing aquafit which is fab!! Have a class tonight!

    Last week, before I began Xenical, I had started to cut down and started swimming a few times a week and walking more, I lost 5lbs, and that was without Xen so fingers crossed!

    Goodluck with it

    Like I said in your other thread, 2 stone is great! dont knock it! At least its coming off!! Thats easy for me to say though as I'm only starting out and if I dont have a good lose at my weigh-in on 30-06-09 I'll prob be very dissappointed But the way I look at it is, no matter how slow it comes off I'm just gonna have to stick at it! Have faith woman... you'll get there! & CONGRATS on the 2 stone!!

    i think 2 stone is great, id be happy with that, just keep it up you are doing great.
    i have an underactive thyroid too and its hard to lose weight, but it will shift eventually.
    i have just started to exercise so hopefully this will help my weight loss.
    wk 1......-3.5lbs
    wk 2......-2lbs
    wk 3......

    Piink Punkstarr,I hope you don't mind but I have copied your original post and closed it as a sticky at the top of this forum. It's incredibly useful and I think people who have been prescribed Xenical but been given no real information on it (like myself ) will find it invaluable.
