    Xenical until March 2011 then Weight Watchers, now Exante (from 4/9/11)
    Just wanted to say hello and welcome :)
    Have a read of the stickys at the top of the main Xenical page - they'll explain all about the 5% rule (no more than 5g fat per 100g of food, and no more than 15g per meal). As long as you stick to that, you won't get any of the side effects.

    This forum really is a great place to get all the help and support you'll need, so stick around and keep posting. Also, have a look at the food diaries on here, they'll give you an idea of the types of food that people are eating while they're taking the tablets.

    And last of all, but most importantly - good luck :D
