    Hi and welcome,
    It depends on the person how much you lose but I started losing weight the 2nd week in, the pills usually take a week to get in your system. If you eat too much fat then you will start to see oil when you go to the toilet, also if you eat too much you can leak oil. Just stick to the 5g per 100g rule and no more then 15g of fat per meal and you should be fine.

    Hi and welcome to Minis, and to the Xenical forum :)
    Like babymable says, everyone is different and we all lose weight at different rates. If you eat too much fat or too high a percentage of fat, at best you shall have greasy farts, at worst your bowels will open with no warning :(:eek: As babymable says, stick to a diet that is 5% fat ( no more than 5 g of total fat per 100g of food product), and no more than 15g of fat per meal.
    I really recommend keeping a food diary, it helps keep an eye on the amount of fat you're consumming.
    Good luck
    xx
