Not sure if Orlistat is working for me?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I've taking Orlistat for nearly 3 weeks and I've only lost a pound. I'm following Slimming Worlds diet but I'm not seeing any adverse effects from the tablets. Am I doing something world or do you think there just not suited to me? I've got around 2 stones to loose.

    When you say you find they work better with high fat meals what exactly do you mean. As I have been on the blues for just over a week and so far touch wood I've had no adverse effects and if it's the Orange oil I don't want them lol.

    You probably go into starvation mode so your body holds all fat and sugars so you won't loose weight. The heavier you are the more you have to physically eat just to run your body so it's areal guessing GAM what you need to eat to loose weight healthily
