Hi and welcome, Ive only been on xencial for just over a week so im still learning. Ive not had any unwanted side effects and I stick to, 3 meals and fruit/yogurts as snacks. The 5g/100g rule is brilliant, theres a post by pink punkii on that too.
Theres a thread with reciepes to, they are lovely def worth a look.

Good luck, most importantly stick to the 5/100g rule and no more than 15g of fat per meal and you'll be fine.

I'm following slimming world as well as using xenicalbut omitting things like cheese!! don't exceed 15g fat per meal and snack on fruit and fat free yogurts is great advice - if you look at some xenical diaries ypu can see what other people are eating
