Hi, Im just after some advice as I've been taking xenical for a week and using my fitness pal to stick to a 1200 calorie diet (mostly sticking to it) and I havent lost any weight, what am I doing wrong?

I don't take a tablet with breakfast because Ive just been having Allbran with almond milk and a scoop of yoghurt which only comes to about 220 calories. Should I still take a tablet with that?

I'm 5'5 and I weigh 73.5kgs. Thanks for any tips or advice smile

    Hi Lucy! And welcome!

    I have been taking one with every meal even if it is low fat low calorie. I figure every little helps. I've had a few weeks where I've stayed the same and then others where I've lost one or two pounds. I found the side effects were more 'active' in my second week of taking the pills. Maybe your body is still adjusting and next week it will have more of an impact.

    Good luck smile

      Thanks for replying, I'll keep at it and hopefully see some results soon.

      It's just so annoying when im eating less calories than usual, and taking xenical and it's not working 😂
