    Morning Lisa, 

    I've just started today, but know others will pop up 

    With some advice. I got an eating plan for ideas off the 

    Xenical website as a guide. 

    How you getting on?

    I have found this quite useful Lisa. I am 10 days into the tablets and lost 2lb but have modified my diet this week to take this inot account

      For info, we have contacted the Norfolk NHS Trust and will be adapting the leaflet linked above for incusion in patient.info. I will add a post to the Orlistat forums when this has been released but it will most likely be August as they are checking that the information is updated as required.

      Regards,

      Alan
