Hi all, i went to the doctors on thursday and was prescribed orlistat, ive been taking it for 2 days and had no side effects, i do eat a high fat diet, i believe i have food neophobia and struggle trying new things which means eating healthily isnt easy for me.

Ive done well the oast 2 days, but i went in my freezer and looked at the fat content in some of the foods i would normally eat and im horrified! I think im going to be living on jacket potatoes!

I also go to the gym 2-3 times a week, im not sure on my exact weight i think im about 12st 9lbs, and im just over 5ft 3, ideally i want to be about 9st 10lb

Hi & welcome to the boards. I am sure even with your problems with food bit by bit you may manage to find new things you like. How about posting the things you normally eat & we can see if we know of any alternatives that maybe you can try. I am surprised with a high fat diet you haven't had any side effects although some people say they don't, one of my bosses at work being one of them, he can eat anything, I just dont' risk it just incase. Anyway onwards & downwards x

Welcome to the forum :) Be wary of the fact that you have only been taking the tablets for 2 days and still having a high fat diet. It takes about 4 days for any "effects2 of naughty food to come through me when taking the tablets, so just be careful lol.
