    I started on xenical yesterday, I rang up the support telephone number and they informed me that they are updating a website and that they are not currently taking referrals. I am really struggling as I do not have a high fat diet and tend to have a maximum of 5grams total per meal, will this stop me losing weight.

    I am concerned because I am eating higher fat foods and I am worried that I wont lose weight.

    As anyone any advice.

    If you are eating higher fat foods, then you will almost certainly suffer side effects such as loose, orange bowel movements. As a guide, Xenical recommend that food that you eat should be no more than 5% fat ( that is 5g of fat per 100g of food product), and that your meals should have a total of no more than 15g of fat. It also means that say you have a wee block of low fat cheddar, say a 30g piece, and that piece has 5g of fat, it is still too high in fat as percentage wise there is over 15g of fat per 100g.
    I know this means looking more closely at food labels, but it is worth it :)
