Orlistat newbie day 2

Posted , 4 users are following.


I'm sooooo glad I found this website this is my second day so far sooo good, had headaches yest and today and a few stomach cramps but otherwise all good.

I'm getting so confused :? with the food and everything, I have been on all alli website and printed of menus and recipes from there to give me an idea but sometimes these are just not possible to do depending on what i have in my cupboard.

If anyone could send me some ideas brekkie, lunch dinner and snacks would be great!

Although i am finding that as I know I can't have it in case of any unwanted leakages occur that's keeping me on the straight and narrow!

Obviously I saw my Doctor who basically said just stick to a 'low fat diet' and didn't point out how many levels of fat etc.

I think I'm doing well so far and I am very encouraged by what I have read on here so far, Its great to have somewhere to come

Thanks guys

    hi Olivegreen

    im on day 2 too, and prob just as confussed, but im sure we will get the hang of it all with help on these pages. Ive not had any side effects at all nothing nadda, no extra trips to the bathroom so im risking going out shopping tomorrow and look at all the clothes ill be able to buy one day.

    im a size 24/26 and i want to get to a size 16/18 if i can that should open up a whole new wardrobe world to me. im trying to stick to the 15g of fat per meal i find that hard to do a breakfast time but i will still take my tablet and see what happens in time. i dont go back to the dr to be weighed till June 8th or there abouts so i wont know for sure til then

    good luck hun

    Welcome to you all.

    I am one of the \"loads to lose\" bunch (I want to lose around 10 stone) so I guess I will be here for a while.

    The Orlistat does help keep me on the straight and narrow if nothing else as I feel forced to select healthier food options (out of fear mainly).

    But you do need the support of your families as some of the side effects can be a little (?) antisocial.

    Keep up the good work and soon you'll be half the poeple you are at the moment.

    from what i can gather its 30g fat per day, spread equally over the 3 meals, My gp didn't give me any info just stick to a low fat diet so this website has given me loads of advice.
