You're right, everyone is different so it's very hard to say. For me, any side effects haven't happened until the next day, the severity and the length of time they last depends very much on what you have eaten. Some people have experienced side effects up to 72 hours after the offending meal. Hope that helps,

It's usually the following day for me as well, although I did once experience side-effects just 2-3 hours after eating the offending food (fish and chips).
The side effects can range from slightly orange (but otherwise normal) poo....right through to full blown diarrhorea that contains orange oil! (sorry if that's too much information).
Don't be too afraid of the side effects, but don't be too complacent either. If you accidentally eat something that is slightly over the fat guidelines, you're not suddenly going to be on the loo for hours, you'd probably either get away with it, or experience a very mild side effect.
However if you do decide to take your tablet with a big greasy take away, then you really are increasing your chances of a visit from the Tango man, as we can him ;)
Good luck with the Xenical, you'll soon get the hang of it and it'll all seem like second nature :)
