    I went to the doctor on monday as i've just been diagnosed with 1)pcos 2)gall stones and 3) a fatty liver. I've been trying to loose weight for years and i just cant so i pretty much gave up but he then recomended thia pills.
    So i have been taking them and today had a slightly bad side effect (not as bad as some peoples story's though thank god).
    I was just wondering if there is any special diet that anyone would recommend. Was thinking about slimming world but my bf said it would be cheating.

    Thanks xx

    Taken from the sticky about xenical

    The 5g rule?..

    You should stick to foods with 5g or less of fat per 100g of product , sounds hard but its surprising how many things you can actually eat.. and if your like me you will freak when you see just how much fat the foods you used to eat actually have *gulps* LOL.. and you should stick to 15g or less of fat in total per meal , again it sounds daunting but its not so hard.

    Side effects?

    People always asking about side effects and why there havent had any?? remember xenical isnt a miricle pill its just to keep you on the straight with your diets.. if your sticking to the above rule ^^^ then more then likely you wont get any side effects at all. but please remember everyones different and certain things may give you trouble when its fine for the next person.. im afraid most things are trial and error.... Salmon is a bad one for me because xenical cant determined bad oils from good so just gets rid =[.. lol.... and on the otherhand if your eating badly then you will have to deal with the side effects.

    How long does xenical take to work..

    Again everyones different but from my own and friends expieriences id say its approx 5-7 days to get into the body so dont be disheartened if you have just took your first pill and nothings happened .. good things come to those who wait =]


    is it important? YES! .. ive noticed that people on xencial that are not as active lose between 1-3lbs a week but those that are more active loose more .... so even if its cleaning or walking exercise is a must with these pills.

    If you stick to the 5g per 100g rule and no more that 15g per meal you won't get any nasty side effects like it says above. All I do along side that is calorie count using my fitness pal it's a great tool and helps track the fat per meal too. Some people do slimming world but you still need to stick to the 5g fat rule x
