    Are you taking them in conjunction with another diet?? It may be they just wont work for you, they dont for everyone. I tried them for ages but they made no difference. A lot of people lose weight because theyre so scared of the side effects they go onto a low fat diet and the weight comes off with that rather than the tablets. Some people do have success with them but it may just be theyre not for you :(

    I really dont think theyll work at all if youre not doing them with another diet. As I said they DONT work for everyone, so if you increase your fat intake in the hope theyll work and they dont youll end up gaining weight.

    Youd be much better following a diet AND taking them. Sadly theyre not the great miracle pill some doctors would have you believe

    Starlight is spot on :) You must follow a low fat diet ( approx 30% of your daily calorie intake needs to come from fat for the Xenical to work). Also everything you eat should be 5% fat or less ( when you look at food labels, you are looking at total fat content and for 5g of fat or less for every 100g of the food product).
    Xenical, like Starlight says, is promoted as a *wonder weight loss * drug by a fair amount of GPs. It's not, it's a weight loss tool, and while it works for some, it also doesn't work for others either.
