orlistate advice&tips

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have just started today, I wondered how long the pills take effect after taking one? I read on here to have 45g fat per day. It must be difficult working out the fat of everything you eat- any tips for this? I have not long had baby number three. I weigh 15stone and want to be around 10/11stone. How is everyone getting on,has anyone else lost this amount or on there way too losing it... Any advice would be great thanks

    Hi Susan, thanks for your reply, I also have lost 5lbs this week. I think I am having a 'hungry' day today, I just feel hungry all the time today. I can't imagine keep up with losing 5lbs a week. Will start exercising not this week coming but the next! Hoe long have u been on orlistat for?

    Hi we are all different and lose weight at different rates some quicker than others, I am losing weight fairly slowly according to my GP. This is my 5th month and Ive lost 26llbs so far but at the moment I seem to have come to a standstill. 

    5llbs in your first week is great but don't expect to lose that much each week it will naturally slow down,

    I have another 1-2 stone to lose yet but Im worried on my next review my GP will stop my prescription if I don't lose much in the next month.

    Expect to lose around 1-2lb per week (depending on how much weight you have to lose, if you have a lot you may lose more each week)

    Stick to a low calorie diet with plenty of fruit & veg, no more than 5g per 100g of fat in food and 15g of fat per meal - 45g per day. Drink plenty of water as this will help you lose weight!

    Good luck with losing the weight.
