    Hello All!! Like the title suggests I'm a newbie to the xenical diet. Any hints or suggestions anyone can give me will be much appreciated. I have already lost 2.5 stones with slimming world but hit a wall and couldnt get through it so here i am! Not looking forward to the poop but sooooo looking forward to shedding a few pounds!!!

    Would love to hear from anyone using xenical!

    Helen xx:D

    Hi hun...I won't worry about any bowel problems, you won't get that side to Xenical, as long you follow 2 simple rules....

    no more than 5grams of fat per 100g and no more than 16grams of fat per meal, with a total value of 45grams of fat per day.

    www.myfitnesspal.com is a site woth signing up to, it will help you track your food.

    Please see this link for the newbie starting info

    Welcome to Xenical

    Thanks for tips. I am starting tomorrow too. My doc didn't tell me about the fat grams so that is really useful information. Thanks.

    Also a newbie to this site.

    The sad thing is not many docs know of the fat grams rule, they usually dish the pills out and push you out the door, I'm hopefully going to do something at my surgery, so when people are issued Xenical, there's a bit of info for them, or an email address or something, that will encourage them to head here etc etc like a poster or something... I heard that a women had started a Xenical support group by doing something similar in her area..

    Thanks again. Been for nice walk in pouring rain too to burn some calories too and joined murky ewe al which is great. What an amazing app. Does anyone want to be friends on that? My username on there is same as on here.

    Also just had bag of Velvet crunch crisps supposed to be 70% less fat and noticed they are 9.8g per 100g which seems high.

    Also off to see Take That tonight at Wembley. Leaving home at 430pm so no idea what I will eat when I'm there. Any ideas?
