    I've been on the xenical 2 days now and I've had no side effects at all. I haven't went to the toilet any more than normal.

    Will it take a week for it to start working, or does that mean I'm sticking to the less than 15g of fat per meal and I wont experience the side effects?

    And also, if your not experiencing any side effects then does that mean its working at all? Surely you would have to have a little extra excretement to ensure its working?

    You will get the orange stuff in your normal 'waste' because your body stores 1/3 of the fat in your gut rather than allowing your body to absorb it. So dont get to worry if you notice it. But loosing control of your bowls and making an accident would only happen if you eat to much fat. This is down to your body rejecting the stored fat and getting rid of it by any means. But keep going as you are, seems like your doing all the right steps.

    You do not need side effects to prove the tabs are working. Side effects only prove you're eating too much fat, weight loss proves the tabs are working :)

    I started the pills just over two weeks ago and not had any side effecte either, I was a bit worried they werent working but all the good advice on here tells me I must be doing it right, to be honest I have been very good as I work in an office and didn't want any nasty side effects I have my first weigh in at my Dr in two weeks time so that will be the moment if I lose any weight I will know I must be doing it right
