I got prescribed orlistat. The doctor just said eat low fat. Which I thought/think I do.

My first question is if u see the Orange oil you are definitely doing something wrong?

Sexism question is I attempted to go out for lunch to waggamma and I selected the chicken salad when I checked the nutrition it said it had 18g of fat does this sound right you? I never got it in the end coz I just couldn't not deal with the mind blowing issues i had last week.

Is it ok that my stool is soft ever since I started?

And has anyone had a slow low weight loss?

Thanks in advance any help is good help

    Hi nicole 1st of all orange oil shows your having too much fat intake a salad with 18grms of fat is too high!! You should be having no more then 15grms of fat per meal and no more then 5 grms of fat per 100grms of everything you eat if you read the lable on everything it gives you the fat content per 100grms always keep it below the 5 if you do that and stick to a certain amount of calories a day you will lose i stick to 1200 a day if you use my fitnesspal app and enter your details it will tell you how many calories to stick to a day for weight loss you can always use the food diary daily it will tell you how many calories lefr for the day if you enter everythibg you eat hope this helps you a bit good luck with your weight loss xx

    Soo I've discovered that I don't eat as low fat as I thought I did. Because I just seem to be popping orange oil everyday!

    I was wondering is it possible to lose weight whilst popping orange oil
