I am taking Orlistat in an attempt to lose weight for an operation. Im not fat by any stretch of the imagination Im 5,3 & 13 stones but the NHS wont put me under the knife until my BMI is down (I hate that bloody chart).
I have been on Orlistat 3 days now & I have noticed how it has effected my way of looking & thinking about food! I will walk round the shops & cringe if I see something even with low fat amounts as I wonder if I end up with the drastic side effects the Orlistat could give me! This might be a good thing but its a surprise that in 3 days [b:9a15407ef4]Im scared of food!![/b:9a15407ef4]
My diet isnt bad in fact the dietitian says its good, although I dont eat dairy or much meat. I enjoy stir fry with fish & lots of fruit & veg. I think my GP is trying to catch me out & he thinks I go home & eat crisps all day, thats why im not losing weight. I will admit im not the most active person in the world but I do walk the dog 6 miles a day (or should I say get dragged for 6 miles)
I have never been skinny & im happy about my size! I think im just one of these people who do honestly find it hard to lose weight.
Im wondering if anyone else is \"SCARED OF FOOD\" all thanks to Orlistat??
LET ME KNOW
