    You can keep taking the xenical while on SW. SW is a low fat diet anyway so you probably won't see any great difference in losses but you shouldn't get any of the side effects.

    If you dont want to take Xenical, dont take it. Its your decision what diet you follow. To be honest as Circes says SW is pretty low fat anyway so Id be tempted to question if theres any point. I think Xenical works best as a deterrant, keeps you on the straight and narrow because of the side effects but if youre doing SW with no problems you wont need a deterrant.

    Dont feel pressured into anything you dont want to do x

    Hi, Ive started S.W after being on xenical for 6months, I find that i cant really do Xenical and S.W from personal experience its to much pressure, i think its good to focus on 1 or the other, At the moment s.w is working ok-ish for me without xenical help. Good luck x

    I really couldnt hack this.. the side effects were terrible! Just do.not.fart... i nearly had to get a new sofa after a small one ;) and the pressure from my GP was huge to lose it!

    If you do go ahead.. good luck. I know some ppl who have had great results but personally it just wasn't worth it!

    good luck hun! xx

    I've tried Xencial in the past and they work great. I didn't have any side effects as I didn't eat anything over the fat limits they gave me, but of course I didn't take them for long and the weight went back on as my eating became extreme again.

    Xencial blocks up to 1/3 of the fat consumed being absorbed by the body. Does this mean even on a low fat diet such as Slimming World, any fat you did consume, however low, would be reduced by a third?

    No it doesn't unfortunately which us why there is often no point in taking them if you're doing a low fat diet.

    I got them for a while but my doctor stopped as I was on WW and my fat intake was so low he said there was basically nothing for them to work with. They made absolutely not one bit of difference to my weight losses

    Ditto with me. My problem was that it wasn't what I was eating but how much. I've always ate mostly low fat but my portions were huge. I lost nothing when I was on Xenical. I know some girls, though, that it's worked great with.

    If you eat cheese....don't fart!
    It happened to me and the results are messy and the orange colour stains youre underwear. Plus its difficult to get off the side of the toilet bowel.
