    Hi im overweight, but dont eat a lot, due to being disabled I cant excercise. Ive been on this for 5weeks and lost over half a stone, ive cut out crisps and chocolate. My down fall is wine !

    If you eat fat then your stools are yellow coloured, this has happend to me when i ate a pack of low fat crisps ! so dont eat between meals and be good then the tablet will work-how I have no idea lol, this , the tablet blocks out fat, as I dont eat fat im unsure how it works ? good luck x

      Dear Wendy,

      Even I ate fruits veggies also poop easily, luv this med wink

      As the fats comes out orange oils wif poop depends on what we consume especially fried food sad

      I luv snacking but now I really try my best build healthy eating habits as I m emotional eating sometimes sad n now I choose apple fruits for snacking.

      We could lose weight as the fat storage will be melted n used by our body for energy, that's on my mind wink

      Good luck dear Wendy!!

      Hi laurask

      As we all know alcohol has sugar in so the less we drink quivcker we lose weight, just go for JD with a Coke Zero maybe. 

      I dont suffer with oily stools, accidents or wet wind lol. But all depends on what you eat. I did have a very small portion of Chinese on Friday and on Sat I did have well in Wales we would say 'Cachi llo bach', my poo was the colour of a young calf's poo !. 

      Good luck to you also.

    Dear Laura, u're welcome wink

    Yepp.. I feel this orlistat helps me losing weight as doctor recommended to me, at first I doubted cos I took duromine before but doctor was right, it's only drug harmful for my body.

    This morning I lost again 0,5kg as weekend i cooked cabbage soup+tofu minimilaze oils wink n went gym for running yesterday.

    Feeling great wif this Xenical orlistat wink

    So keep it up, Laura!!!

    Sure u can do lose weight!!

    My advice, probably we need to wear pads while 1st week, in worries just feel like when periods comes. The orange color leaks when fart but surprisingly no smells like poop but uncomfortable feeling, just that's it.. Feels like fat war on my body lol

    Good luck Laura!! wink

    keep on update our journey wif this med wink
