    I started Orlistat On saturday.I had my first experience of \"orange oil\" this morning.Its not too bad lol!

    If you eat alot of fat it comes out in your poo if you take the tablet.If you eat alot of fat and dont take the tablet nothing will happen.

    If you dont eat anything fat the tab wont work because it has nothing to work on,if you know what i mean.

    So far so good for me :lol:

    I cant wait to lose weight :D

    I think so but the problem sticking to a low fat diet is that it is easy to cheat at least with the tablets you don't cheat or at least think twice about it due to the side effects!

    Yeh.You will lose weight but the Orlistat gives you a bit extra weight loss as it stops you absorbing most of the fat.

    Plus the side effect make you think twice about eating fatty foods,lol. :lol:

    Hey Teejay19,

    The tabs work in your tummy to stop you absorbing 1/3rd of fat. So even if you eat low fat you will still lose weight faster as you're only absorbing 2/3rds of the fat you've eaten. If you have a meal with no fat at all in then there's no need to take the pill. If you eat a very high fat meal and don't the pill you won't get O/Oil side effects BUT you also won't lose any WEIGHT :!: So best idea is to stick to as low fat as poss and keep popping those pills :!: Hope this has helped.

    TTFN Kal :wink:
