    Hello! We all know that at times Xenical can lull us into a falce sence of security! What are some funny/horrific experances you have had?
    At first i didnt watch what i ate. I just kept on with the cakes and chineses. The coco ice lollys "feasts" were my dayly snack. Then one day i was sitting at the kittchen table and I farted.
    Lets just say i cant even look at a feast any more :cry:
    It was the worst expernce i have ever had lol. Now i never fart unaided. i go to the bathroom to fart lol. Thats how these pills work for me. Fear of farts lol

    when i first got them i knew and reserached all the stuff i cud find , drew up a strict plan and made myself aware that my old eating habits were likely to cause bad side effects so from day one ... i stuck to 5g rule... i have had stuff like salmon which has reacted badly over the time...die to good oils being treated as bad oils...

    but all in all 8 months of xenical and i dont have any bad side effect stories really..

    i think it does scare you into life changes.. but until you realise that the pill dont work and you wont loose weight unless u eat sensibly and exercise then thats when the sucess happens.

    I am farting more than usual, but no follow thru. Norm said I farted very softly in my sleep last night and the stench was atrocious, he had to get up and open the window. Good job they love us eh?

    I have been on and off the pills for a few years now and on several occasions have had to change my pants and even wash, if you can believe it. and I know better too, so I always make sure that I "fart" over the toilet. You never know what may happen even when eating healthy. Lol.

    Im laughing so much. I actually did this today, was sitting at the dinner table eating my very healthy lunch and I sharted, and it was VERY bad, it stained my dining table seat. I'm laughing about this now but I was gagging on the stink of the oils! I can't even remember what I've eaten that was so bad! Oh wait yes, the Mcdonalds.......

    I was put off trying xenical because of horror stories told by someone I work with. She had to be near a toilet constantly, couldnt take a bus or go for a walk even. She had permanant piles. In
    the three months she was on them she didnt lose any weight to speak of. Her moaning really put me off, but now I know the golden rules regarding fat I realise she was not following the right eating guidelines. She would have butter on her bread (Just a scraping) and a bit of butter on jacket potatoes. Her main scource of meat was mince (ordinary, not low fat) if she had salad she had a lot of coleslaw with it. Loads of stuff like this, no the wonder she had problems. With this forum I am learning loads reading the posts and what I dont know I can ask.

    i too am learning loads.... for some i think the tablets to them are a Miricle cure... but its not the case... its not a diet you have to follow its a complete lifestyle change... you need to change what you are eating and how you live your life or you wont get anywhere at all!!!
