    How do we work out how many calories we should have on Xenical? As less than 30% of calories should come from fat I guess it's quite important to know what your calorie intake should be.

    Any pointers? x

    You dont need to count calories, you can do Xenical in conjunction with Calorie counting, WW, SW....

    but all the literature and research says that results are best when used in a calorie reduced diet... but what I'm wondering is, what do they really mean by this?

    Have a look at Free Calorie Counter, Diet & Exercise Journal | MyFitnessPal.com and input your details there. They will tell you roughly how many calories to have in a day for your height and weight. Having said that, Starlight is right in that you don't need to count calories as long as you aren't going mad on low fat food that is high in calories if you see what I mean.

    ive never once calcualted calories... main reason was im no good at maths and the idea of counting fat was so much more appealing with it being a lower number.... if you stick to low fat foods below 5g of fat per 100g of product and 15g in total or less per meal.. you will be sticking to the reduced calorie diet without realising it... and if your active as well your body will burn or use the calories it needs to.. cutting down on fat is way more important because calories can turn to fat but fat will always be fat! x
