Hi it's my first day of orlistat and I am suffering a terrible headache, is this a possible side effect?

I am really looking forward to seeing how I get on with my weight loss

If anyone one has any snack or meal ideas I would really appreciate it and I would love to hear everyone's stories xxxxxx

    I started yesterday, so far so good but pretty scared to eat anything fatty! My doctor told me to only take 2 tablets a day, so trying to have a really low fat breakfast and take them with lunch and dinner.

    Its good to see how others are getting on, good luck everyone!

    I like to have banana, raspberries and fat free greek yogurt for breakfast, with a sprinkle of grape nuts for some crunch. Or no added suger alpen with a sliced banana and skimmed milk.

    Did you both get told to take 2 or 3 tablets a day?
