    Hi all.

    I have been on Xenical for 6 days. I am eating three meals a day, trying to keep them below 10g fat , with 12g as an absolute ceiling.
    I am snacking on only fruit or raw veg.
    I haven't had any side effects (ie no orange oil in the loo) other than bloating. Is this because i'm not eating much fat, or am i doing it all wrong?

    From what i read you seem to be doing great. Although you're allowed to have upto 15g of fat per meal. Side effects only happen if you eat over the amount, so no you're not doing anything wrong. And bloating is a side effect of taking Xenical but believe me this passes after a few weeks once your body becomes used to Xenical.

    All the best Red x
