    I'm a bit confused on the egg thing, can I safely have eggs while on xenical as they are naturally quite high in fat.

    I do enjoy scrambled eggs or an omlette but have stayed away from them up to now.

    So am I allowed a couple of eggs a week?:confused:

    i usually stay clear of them .. but on occasion i have 1 egg scrambled (skimmed milk and pepper) on a wholemeal slice of bread for brekkie , dont have any side effects but everyone is different.

    Eggs are over the 5percent fat mark though (im sure of it) best see what ali says shes better at this then me xx

    1medium egg ( approx 58g) is about 5.9 g of fat ( or there abouts...so just over 11% fat)
    Personally I stayed away from eggs, but that was because I love em, and would quite happily have 3 of them in an omelette :rolleyes:
    Also the over 5% fat affects everyone differently...some peeps are fine, some get the dreaded orange oil. Only one way to find out lol

    o my gawd, i didnt even think of eggs being a problem, they were free on SW so I have eaten a fair few this week and on Xenical, not had any problem as yet...had a hard boiled one yesterday and one in a sarny.... I gotta be a bit more careful tho i could easily have come undone !!hehehehehe at the seams quite literally :)
