    Hi everyone,

    I am new here and just wanted to share my story of how I lost 4.5 stone using Xenical and eating healthy.

    I started using Xenical in February this year as I had ballooned, and was feeling and looking rubbish.

    I changed my diet completely. For 6 days a week, I ate 1500 calories. This consisted of good food, rather than the rubbish I had been eating previously.

    An example of what I was eating is a breakfast of Oatso Simple porridge with a banana in. Lunch would be something like a weight watchers meal with some salad. For my main meal, I ate lots of Quorn products, chicken, lamb. Basically whatever I fancied with lots of broccoli and carrots. I always had dessert too. The Weight Watchers range is really tasty and curbed my sweet tooth.

    On the 7th day, I went mad. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted. Nothing was forbidden. Believe me, I gorged, and because it was a treat day, it was enjoyable.

    because I followed the instructions on the tablets fully, I never experienced any side effects whatsoever. I didn't take a tablet on treat day, for obvious reasons :)

    The change of lifestyle led to me actually eating much more than I was before, but good stuff. I also used an iPhone app called Tap and Track to monitor calorie intake. The best thing for me was that I did no exercise whatsoever.

    Some pics attached, and I wish everyone the best of luck in their diets.:)

    I feel much healthier, and think I look younger too. I am 34 in August.

    Fantastic, a treat day sounds great but I'd struggle to regain the discipline for the rest of the week!

    It's great to hear & see how far you've come, an inspirational story.

    well done, you can really see the difference! That's some weight-loss, hope I can do something similar as we are off to Disneyland at the end of October. It's be great to have more room in the plane seat :D
    I'd be interested to hear how you eat now. Do you still eat 1500 cals, take Xenical and/or look for foods that are less than 5% fat?

    Xenical works well hun, as long as you stick it with it, I lost 5stone in 4.5 months, it's totally do-able, you'll do it! :)

    I don't eat meat or fish and I did have Quorn products, I couldn't have many as the fat content is really high in them, so watch out for that, some of them are ok though :)

    You only have side effects if you don't follow Xenical rules :)

    Thanks everyone. I maintain by just watching what I eat. Anything in moderation, rather than anything and everything all of the time.

    However, on weekends I eat what I want. I usually weigh 3 or 4 pounds more on Monday, but it's gone by Friday so all good.

    I also never bothered with the fat per 100g, I just looked at the fat content per meal. If it was less than 15-20g, then I ate it.

    hey and wow you look brill well done... the only think i have to say is that some peoples bodys work a lot diff and by saying to some that eat anything and as much as you want on a day , i dont like that as if you have a new routine healthy eating you can eat lots and lots just the good healthy foods.. theres alternatives to choc crisps and deserts just as nice so no need to go mad , and the tablets take around 3-4 days to come out of your system so for some people even if you took no tablets on that day you will have side effects...but your way worked for you so well done.. and your right now its maintaning by beinbg sensible .. i still follow the rule to the letter not to loose weight but because its a healthy diet x

    about meat? i eat chicken tuna and even steak sainsburys have a lean steak thats 3.2g of fat per 100g the ONLY one ive found.. =D
