    yes, i understand it blocks a 3rd of ur calories from fat, but does the majority of the weight come off via the no more than 15g per meal rule?

    is the side effect acting as a deterant the key to its success? eat less fat or suffer the consiquenes? blocking only 5 grams of fat per meal doesnt seem an aweful lot.

    It absorbs 1/3 of Fat from entering your body, not calories.

    Xenical only absorbs 1/3 of the fat you intake its not a magic pill that makes you loose weight. It just helps you, Healthy eating and good excersie is the key.

    The side affect is just something your body does to counter the pill, it isnt meant to make you do what they claim it does. But yes it helps keeps you mind focused.

    1/3 of fat is alot. If you eat 3 meals a day your body is only absorbing 2 meals worth of fat.

    The deterrent part is right on the money. But it does not take off calories, it removes a part of the fat from each meal from your body by way of bowel movements. But you still have to stick to a diet. Its more of a help for you rather than a cure. Hope this helps.:)
