    I know how much fat I should be eating etc but if I don't eat enough I should still lose weight-right?

    morning sugar,
    well thats my opinion, it's all about how many calories go in verses how many you burn +/- some variants! ... some say you HAVE to eat the set amount or you body goes in to emergency fat burning shut down or sommaz..
    i have my own opinion and it goes like this.. do more exercise than you usually do.. anything counts as exercise!!.. and eat less than you usually eat!.. simple as that!!!.. "im pretty sure thats the black n white of it all"

    i cant eat 15g of fat PER MEAL thats 45g per day! i usually hit around the 15g/20g mark for the day and its worked for me!! to me, the tabs are just so that u wont be tempted to eat anything and everything, just incase of mr tango, which is why im not quite ready to do it alone just yet without them...

    :D:D

    Those total fat rules is more of a guideline to keep you in a path, as a lot of people would eat soooo much more fat before starting Xenical.

    It is important that you eat fat, there are also good fats too. Xenical only work with fat, so eating fat does help, I think around 20gs of fat is pretty much average and is ok :)

    You WILL lose weight but itll very possibly be down to WW not Xenical, but that shouldnt matter... so long as youre losing.

    Xenical isnt a magic tablet, its very often used as a tool along side a diet, more to make sure you keep on the straight and narrow.

    If youre on WW then your diet is going to be low fat so there wont be a lot for the tablets to work on. When I took Xenical I lost just as much on WW with them as without them. I think an awful lot of doctors dont explain how Xenical work, or dont work

    Youre not going to gain weight though by eating low fat and sticking to WW :)

    Yes you will loose weight, you're doing ww along side of it, it will probably mean that you and the ww will be doing the work more than the Xenical.. it's important that you still keep an eye on the fat though, and make sure you apply the 5g rule to the foods to minimise any nasty effects :)
