I was on it a year ago and when I went over my fats, I bloody knew about it. The orange oil is well known by all here I'm sure. Maybe I had an accident in public :o.

However due to a series of unfortunate events I went off it, and now I'm back on.

Thing is it's birthday week (there are 3! family birthdays this week) and whilst I've been very well behaved, I've definitely went over my fats. Not only that but generally I sometimes make mistakes as it still can be confusing for me, the rules on fats. I get a bit of an iffy tummy from that but none of the old effects.

I have lost weight regardless, a fairly good amount in 2 weeks I'll admit. I don't particularly miss that effect but at the same time it was a warning system, and above all it was kind of the way to know it was still working in my body.

Has it changed? I'm on the same dose amount as I was a year ago..

    Same here.  On day 4 of Xenical and wondering if I've got a dodgy batch!  I was on it a year ago and had an accident while running.  Thank goodness I was in the middle of nowhere and managed to pull my pants down and proceed to cause an oil spill on eastern Crete.  smile  Now, although I've been watching what I eat, I feel like I'm constipated.  Maybe I should eat something fatty and see if I can cause another ecological disaster?
