hi new and confused??

Hi all, I have just started taking xenical today, i have had good success before with reducil but it didnt last :( sooo i am going to join SW and really get commited this time :)
however the doctor didnt really know what to advise re calories and fat intake, I have read through the new starters sticky and it makes a lot more sense but I am still confused over weather I should be counting fat or saturated fat content?? can anyone advise please

Hi and welcome

Its all fat that you need to count, not just saturated.

You shouldnt experience any side effects as long as you stick to the 5g per 100g rule, and no more than 15g total per meal.

Good luck x
thank you, I see you are doing SW as well is it easy to combine? do i still need to count calories if i follow SW??
i manage the sw and xenical by mostly doing red days. The main thing when you are doing both is that you have to watch your syns and HEX, obviously HEX like cheese are more than 5g per 100g as is chocolate for your syns.

So yeah, it is possible but you just need to be careful how you spend your syns.
thank you it makes sense, i will try this week on my own and see how it goes then proberly start SW next week
I love your SW stars you have done really well
Welcome & good luck Xxx
