I have just started taking Xenical. My gp suggested it last week, I was a bit unsure until I came across this forum. After reading some of the stories on here I went back to my gp and got a prescription.

SO far i haven't had any nasty side effects but it seems to affect people who eat to much fat - the threat of such problems is what I need to control what I eat!

I am controlling my calories between 1200 - 1400 a day and also my fat intake.

I really hope I can see this through and manage to finally lose weight and not get disheartened after just a month or so!

Hi and welcome,
You will lose weight I was very dubious but I am losing weight slowly but surely, everyone is different... but I am happy as long as i am losing.. it is now becoming a way of life watching fat intake so it is fantastic training for the future!
