I have only just started on Orlistat.  I am 4' 11" and weigh 73kg.  I have been good leading up to commencing the tablets & tomorrow is my own personal weigh in at the doctor's.  I have not noticed any differences in hunger or side effects.  Are these blue pills going to do anything?

    The pills do work if you stick to the 5g fat per 100g rule.

    Some people differ obviously but I have lost 2 & 1/2 stone in 6 months so Im pleased with that so far.

    Go for it and good luck

    They wont do anything apart from help you to lose weight. Side effets only come if you eat fattening food so it's good that you haven't had any effects.

    I am sticking to the 5g per 100g rule & the 15g per meal.  My total fat  has not gone above 28g in a day, so the question is, Am I eating enough fat?
