    Certainly not. If your doing the diet right which is low fat you should have no oil at all. Everything you eat should be below 5%fat and you should have no more than, 15g of fat in each meal. The fat still in your stomach it will get rid of 1st so hopefully now eating healthy it will stop x

    I've also been taking it for 3 weeks, I'm on Myfitnesspal and I have set the fat and saturated fat to 20gr per day. I read somewhere 20 was a good aim. Of I keep to this my stools are not too bad. If I don't stick to 20...yip I happens.

    I’d say that’s a good sign! I’ve been on it for 3 days and no oily stools even with around 10-15 g fat per meal.  rolleyes.  I want to know it’s working.
