    Hi and welcome. I am still relatively new (1 month) but will try to help. When shopping you should look for items of less than 5 gram of fat per 100 gram. The 15 gram is fat content per meal.

    If you contact MAP thay are very helpful and will send out booklets etc. We are not able to give phone numbers on this site so look up the Xenical MAP on line and you will find the number.

    If you keep low fat you should get few, if any side effects. If you eat too fatty a meal, you may get them, but not always till the next day. We are all different so I think we have different thresholds of the amount of fat we can eat, but of course it is important to keep it down in order to lose weight.

    Am sure you will get used to what works for you, and as I said do contact MAP.

    I am sure other members will also get back to you,

    In the meantime welcome to the site, and good luck :D
