Xenical and slimming world

i have been prescribed xenical by my GP and am going to slimming world. If i combine both will i be eating the correct food to go with xenical. i have lost nearly 4 stone with SW but wanted to kick start my weight loss a bit more.
i just thought with xenical you have to keep off fatty foods but reading these threads makes me realise there is a lot more to taking xenical.

Hi tracey

I'm following slimming world and taking xenical, quite a few people on here are doing it actually, and it's really easy to combine the two. Some foods which are safe for SW are actually not on plan for xenical, as in they don't follow the 5g rule (you can only eat foods which have 5g or less of fat per 100g of that product and you can only have up to 15g of fat per meal - so 45g fat a day, if this doesn't make sense have a look at the sticky "xenical for new starters" its called I think). So for example, I used to have Quavers all the time because they were 4.5 syns a pack but I can't have them on Xenical because of the fat content so I have Ryvita minis instead which are 5 syns a bag. You just have to fit SW around xenical!

For me I found it easier to ignore SW for the first week and just concentrate on xenical and by that I mean I ignored syn values and focused on fat intake and didn't count healthy extras so I sometimes had Alpen light bars and bread on the same day but technically was having extra easy meals... we'll see if it's worked tonight at my first WI lol.

Good luck x
