    Hi all, I am going to be starting on xenical again at the beginning of next month.
    I have taken it before and lost over a stone and a half. I followed a healthy diet and moved house when I changed my doctors surgery I had not been taking it for a month and although I had put no weight on they wouldn't start me on it again.

    So that was a year ago and i've been up and down with my weight but lost 1st 4 lbs and my doctor has said I can go back on it if I loose another couple of lbs by the next time I see her.

    Ive been following a weight watchers plan and will continue this when I start back on the meds but obviously keeping fats to an absolute minimum.
    I no longer want to spend my time on the loo :O) Im just reading through these :8855:forums for a bit of motivation really xxx:8855:

    Not that i can think of really, but once your filling up on good carbs you should be ok.

    well just carbs from your wholemeal breads and rices and pastas and potato's and fruit. Bad carbs would be from sweets and chocolate :)

    There's no real nutrition in the White versions. They basically just fill you up

    Thankyou for your kind messages. I joined my local weight watchers class last night aswell for extra support I just hope the combination of a healthy low fat diet and and Xenical when I resume on it will get me on the way to strutting in my swimwear next year in goa.

    I came back with allsorts of stuff last night all the books the calculator. My fella's face was a picture. He said WOW do you get all that when you join. I smiled said yes and went upstairs to study it lol.

    Hope we are all losing away!!! xxxxx

    Brown rices, pulses and grains and wholemeal breads are the better carbs for you, they're called complex carbs and they feed your body and they release energy slowly throughout the day, this helps to balance your blood sugar levels and energy.

    The bad carbs will send you on a downward spiral, they're stodgy and no good for you really. They don't do anything to balance your blood sugar or your energy levels, they'll give you a quick zap of energy which doesn't last long, making you want to eat more of the same things to get your body going again.
