    Hi everyone, i'm Sarah and my lovely, lovely, lovely dr prescribed me xenical this morning so i will be joining you.

    I started the cambridge diet last month, lasted 4 days and couldn't stand the smell of my own breath!! Managed to lose 9lb in 4 days and have put 6 back on (oops) BUT have a 3lb head start still so not too bad.

    I'm glad i had a read through some of the threads i'll be avoiding eggs and cheese, anything else i need warning about?!! Luckily i am on maternity leave still so if i learn a lesson it won't be at work lol.

    Look forward to chatting with you all. :D

    Hi Sarah and welcome to the Xenical forum :D
    As long as you stick to foods that are 5% fat, and have no more than 15g of fat per meal, you should do just fine :) A good idea is to keep a food diary, that way you can keep an eye on the fat grams. I keep a diary in the kitchen and fill it in as I prepare my meals, others keep theirs online, whatever suits really :)
    Good luck with your weigh loss journey

    :welcome2: to you!

    Seems like you've got the cheese and eggs sussed already! Just stick to less than 5g per 100g.

    I think the key to success around here is to make sure you post lots, good or bad days! You could even start a diary in the thread at the top? Good luck x

    Hello Fellow Berkshire Dweller!:D
    Im new to Xenical, been taking it for a week and a half now. I have had no side effects and finding the tablets help me stay on the straight and narrow through fear of 'orange oil'!! I have a weigh in with the Dr in 3 weeks times but a quick peak on the scales show a little loss, so im very pleased.
    Look forward to reading about your weight loss journey
