    Hi and welcome to the forum!! You will be fine on alli once you stick to the rules, i am on xenical (double the dose of alli) and the rule with that is no more than 5g of fat per 100g!! No more than 45g of fat per day, that might be slightly different with alli, i'm not sure!! All i can say is make sure your eating your calorie allowance, drink plenty of water, and stay away from foods with more than 5g of fat per 100g, and you will not see any side effects. Thats what had put me off for so long, but you honestly dont get them if you stick to it!! Good luck, and i am sure you will be saying goodbye to that first 5lb very soon!!

    well done for taking the first step and try not to look at it as having 4 stone to lose break it up into smaller manageable goals that are easier to work towards, break it into stones or even half stones and treat yourself when you reach that goal

    agree with the drinking water, not only because of weight loss but it also makes you feel fantastic, my skin is glowing since i started taking xenical just because i am eating more fruit and veg, and drinking buckets of water every day

    One word of warning, be careful with salmon, some of the girls have had a bad reaction to salmon, and by that i am sure you know what i mean, it doesnt affect everyone though. The xenical cant tell the difference between good fats and bad fats so even though salmon is good, you could experience the side effects.. Like i said though it doesnt affect everyone!!
