I started orlistat 9 days ago. My doctor agreed to prescribe me it after I gained a stone due to illness and currently too tired/drained to go to the gym and getting very run down by it.
I weighted 86.3kg when started and a week later I was down to 83.6kg but now just a few days later I'm back up up 85kg. I know these may only seem small figures but I want to make sure I'm doing the best I can to make the tablets effective and feel a little lost with it so wondered if anyone could help.
I rarely eat junk food as scared of the side effects and don't want to cheat it. My normal diet would be porridge with dates or a banana and once a week a bagel with Nutella.
Lunch time I would have a small portion of stew/soup/curry/noddles with extra veg, all homemade and low oil or a wrap.
Evening meal I would have a piece of meat or fish and then lots of veg. In between I eat only fruit. I'm still doing light exercise and walk a fair bit but not weights or anything to hardcore at gym.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any advice, tips etc would be really appreciated.
