I feel the need to post my experience as there has been a lot of confusion over Orlistat and Weightwatchers.
I am not a professional, I'm only posting my experience for others to read. I'm not telling anyone to follow my plan as everyone is different. Im just aware that there are a lot of different ideas for diet regarding the tablets.
When I started two weeks ago, I was confused. I follow Weightwatchers (points). I decided to take Orlistat and follow Weightwatchers. I haven't counted calories because those of you who know WW, will know that sat fat and calories are how they work out your daily points. I'm currently on 29.
1. For the last two weeks I have stuck to 29 points a day,
2. I haven't done any exercise
3. I've tried to drink 2 litres of fluid a day but somedays less, somedays more.
4. I've taken 1 tablet, 3 times a day just before I eat
5. I have experienced oil when I use the loo but this is managable and its just in the toilet.
6. I have had 2 accidents - 1. I ate chocolate and 2. I ate chinese. These foods are in my points but obviously over the reccommended fat levels.
most importantly ....
7. In 2 weeks I've lost 4kg's. (8.8lb) (I've opted for fortnightly weigh in's)
Like I said, I'm only posting to show others that you can take the tablets and just follow WW, not having to count 25-35g of fat a day. OK, if you don't want oil then you do have to be careful, but I have had 2 SMALL accidents and the other just seems ok as its not on my clothes just in the pan. I have had headaches, hence drinking more water.
I don't mean to offend anyone who strictly follows the g of fat a day thing but I just wanted Weightwatchers to know for me it worked. Everyone is different, its trial and error, but I'm pleased.
Hope I have helped.
