    i found out that xenical and alli are the names used by chemists and orlistat is what its known as by docs. so all three names are the same

    Hiya Charlotte welcome to a really supportive group of lovely people :)

    The only difference between Alli and Xenical is the mg Alli is 60mg and Xenical 120mg

    I was on Alli for just over a month and had a good loss so I am sure you will do fantastic.....Join the alli programme on Home | alli you will have a weekly weigh in on there and also it has lots of information and recipes...I would also recommend you get the Alli Diet Plan book which explains everything you need to know aswell as having really lush recipes that are very easy to follow and are cheap to make !!
    Make sure you know how many calories you should be eating and drink lots of water....and don't stress out :)
    One other thing don't see it as a diet but as a lifestyle change as I think the more you think of been on a diet you add pressure to yourself which really isn't needed ....Goodluck and make sure you come on here for a natter :):)

    Hi Charlotte you are definately in the right place for support, I joined a week ago and have had so much support and great advice from lovely people that know exactly what they are doing/saying. Best advice I have had so far was to join MyFitnessPal.com, it is wonderful to just input what you eat and what exercise you have done and let it calculate everything for you, fantastic for keeping track of your fat%, carbs, calories etc. So glad I found this site :eek:)
