Hi all - I've been prescribed Orlistat by my doctor, but with absolutely no advice about what kind of diet I should be following when I take them. I've seen suggestions on here to have only 30g of fat a day, but elsewhere (including the Xenical site) it's 47g on a diet of 1400 cals a day. Which is it?! Also, if I follow a low fat/low calorie diet, is it going to have any differential effect at all, given that I would lose weight on one anyway (if I stuck to it)? I get that the side effects kick in if I don't stick to a diet, so is Orlistat just a form of aversion therapy?!
I am puzzled and confused and don't know how to go forward, so any help appreciated!
