Hi was just wondering if the Xenical starts working straight away helping you to lose weight or does it take x amount of days.
I have been taking the tab for 5 days now and sticking to a low cal low fat diet for the past nearly 5 weeks.
In the first 4 weeks i wa not taking Xenical and i lost 20.5 lbs i will get weighed on Monday but not expecting a very good loss this week as TOTM is due any day and also i know this is weird but since taking Xenical the past 5 days i have been slightly constipated.
I def have not had more than 5 grms of fat per 100 grms and 15 grms per meal inf act most of my meals have been 2/3 grms of fat per 100 grms and the max 8 grms of fat in one meal and that is dinner only, so average fat for the day is no more than 16/18 max and my cals range from 1000/1200 per day.

Does the Xenical take a week to start working or is it immediate and i dont mean the side effects a have not exceeded fat amounts at all and alo ur first week on the tabs did u have a fab weight loss different from the other weeks.
Soz for all the questions but been thinking bout it all day lol.
Thanks and take care xxxx

I was slightly constipated on the first week and about the 3rd week, only had a few major side effects.

So for me I think it starts working pretty quickly but prob' about a week to see any difference in loser/quicker bowel movements.

As for the constipation, Ive never had that, I have always been quite a regular gal' so assuming that was the pills starting to work on my bowels, even if it was the reverse to what was expected

Good luck with your weigh in, im sure you will have done fine.

Hi Nee thanks hun am pleased to know that i am not the only one that was slightly constipated as i am quite a regular gal 2 lol.
When it comes to a good loss i dont think i will loose weight this week as TOTM is due any day and i did have a good weight loss of 6lbs last week so there is a good chance i will sts but if i do thats ok as i know i have been 100%.
Hope ur having a good week take care and ty xx

Well at least you lost 6lbs last week so if you do sts you know the reason why :)

Fingers crossed that you lose something.

Im doing ok, being very good with eating just concerntrating on eating as low fat as poss and now trying to keep an eye on my calorie intake. I get abit obsessed by the counting hee hee

I get weighed on Wednesday so hoping for a loss, but via doctors scales I havent lost in a month so not expecting much, but my scales and boots scales say somewhat different so we shall see

xx

Ps thanks for the rep x

To be honest Roch if youre on a low fat diet and losing so well theres a very strong likelihood that you wont really see any great benefit from Xenical. When I was on it I lost nothing extra and my doctor said it was because my diet was naturally low in fat so my body didnt have the excess fat to get rid of.

Just dont be disappointeed if you dont get any benefit from it

It really seems to work best as a deterrent to stick to a LF diet but if youre already focussed then youre halfway there x
