    I was debating on trying them, even though i eat well theres still some fatty stuff i eat. You never know.
    All i remeber last time is that i quite literally needed the loo 24/7!

    Worth trying them if you can get them. Im never sure if they work or if because youre so scared of the side effects you cut down your fat intake.

    You might find though that cos youre doing WW your diet is pretty low fat as it is. Thats why my doctor said they didnt work for me, he said that hes found people on a low fat diet dont generally get results with them.

    It does make me wonder starlight if they would work or not, but i still eat loads of sweets so maybe they would get some of the sweet content out of me cos i cant stop eating sweeties completely!

    They might but then even incorporating your sweets youre probably still eating pretty low fat and they only get rid of something like 30% of fat.

    I always hoped theyd work on my treat night when I had chinese - but they didnt :giggle:

    If he doesnt I believe Adios tablets work on a similar principle, not sure how 'strong' they are compared to Xenical

    I've done Xenical - got it on private prescription from Boots. Felt like cr*p the whole time I was on them and, as you said, Sarah, I needed to be near a loo the whole time.

    The idea of them is to 'encourage' you to eat low-fat by making you feel disgusting if you don't if you ask me.

    If you're losing weight on WW they probably won't change that anyway.

    Sounds sensible to me. If you weren't losing maybe it would be worth it but you are doing really well without...

    I tried Adios, also tried Hoodia and Lipotropics but it didn't work at all for me. I'm pretty sceptical about slimming pills to be honest, I mean if they really worked that easily then there wouldn't be any fat people in the world? Just my honest opinion though.
