Hi There,
I had decided to do Slim Fast as I hadn't had much joy with Xenical but having read some of the posts - in particular the one above concerning the 5% rule, it has made me realise that I was given this drug with no advice on how to take it and dietary advice - is this normal? When you do the slim fast, do you then take a xenical after a shake?
Thanks

Pretty much, I got more advice from the pharmacist (whose hubby was on it).

yes its seeming like no one is given any info on what you need to do or not to do in most cases!!! I found most of the info needed on kiira's sticky on this page!!!

In answer to the question of do i take a tablet after having a shake the answer is yes! Its got fat in it so therefore i take one!! Tbh if i eat i take a tablet, just to keep me on track, but if i dont eat a meal (most weekends im not up for breakfast) so i dont take them!!

Has that helped???

Hi all

Thinking of trying slim fast given the offer at tesco! What is the 5% rule?

Thanks
hi clarkey, the 5% rule has nothing to do with takin slimfast, its to do with takin the tablets that we take called xenical/orlistat.

Jump over to the slimfast section of the site and there are loads of threads full of info that will help you!!

welcome, and good luck

Thanks! Thats worth considering then! I'll try it. I do find it odd that doctors can prescribe something without the advice and support that is needed for a drug like this - luckily I understand the basics and have never had any of the mortifying side effects.

Please let me know how you get on.

I started on day one today with Slimfast and Alli, following Kes's lead, seems like a good way to get into this without having to think to much!

Feel like once I've got my head round this and need a cahnge may cdrop the slim fast, but right now its seems like the perfect combination.

Good luck :)
