    Welcome!

    The side effects I've found are increased flatulence (lovely) and ifyou have a meal too high in fat, well, when you feel the need to pass wind, nip to the loo cause it's not always wind. But bear in mind that the side effects you have today are because of what you ate yesterday or sometimes the day before.


    If you're following a low fat diet you shouldn't have really any side effects. I sometimes feel a tiny bit constipated.

    hiya and welcome!


    you shouldnt get any side effects if u stick to the rules (see the sticky for more info)! I did get headache for a couple of weeks but i think it was a sugar withdrawl that caused that!

    good luck and post lots!

    Hi and welcome...
    is there any reason your not having pasta... its ok (well as far as i can tell it is...) yes its high in carbs, but not at all in fat.... just make sure you dont have too much, is what ive been doing... ive had pasta and its not struck me out...
    ive been doing xenical for 5 weeks now, and ive not had any side effects... but i have also been really strict with myself in what i eat..
    ive also posted a meal recipie thread .. (which i have to add to!)
    its got some great recipies in there. (bias i know) lol...

    Good luck anyway...
    OH and COngrats on the loss already! WOW!!

    hi

    Hi,

    Everyone seems to be doing so well! I only went to my GP today and after a bit of a fight managed to get some Xenical.

    I used it about 8 years ago combined with Slimfast and it worked, but i got pregnant and it all came back on again!!

    I am petrified of the side effects (although i didnt have any before).

    Any advice would be appreciated!!

    Thanks

    xx

    Just a quick question! As my doc was completely useless and gave me NO info, i am still a bit confused about the amount of fat i am allowed. I have read that i can have 15 g of fat per meal, but that sounds like a lot?

    Worked out that i had about 10 g of fat in TOTAL today which was about 1,000 cals.

    Can someone help?!!

    yes you shouldnt go over 15g per meal. and you should try to avoid anything that has more than 5g per 100g....
    it does sound like a lot for a meal, but when you look at (well when i look at) what i was eating before hand then you think woooohhhhh thats like 20g fat!!
