Solution to fuel crisis

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm new to this!!

Having spent 2weeks with the tablets in the cupboard scared to take them because of the side effects I'd read about, I finally submitted last weekend. Surprise , surprise I've lost 5lbs in a week!!

Only side effect I've had is the 'jet propulsion'. If everyone took these tablets there would be no need for fuel as we would all be jet propelled everywhere!!

What does worry me is I read that some people don't eat enough - I have 3 meals a day and don't want anymore. I also don't drink alot of water - is this wrong?

    Can I add my two penn'orth? On my first month on Orlistat I stuck to a low fat diet and started some moderate exercise. I lost 8 lb. Then I went on holiday, didn't take the tabs (cos I was scared of having any accidents), went back to my old eating habits, did no exercise and I gained 3 lb. I think the moral of that story is obvious. As for low fat eating, I found that eating a small amount of fat did work better than eating no fat at all. I've found that for me using the olive oil spray that you can get now is better than fry light. Olive oil, because it's a good oil, but a spray so that you don't use too much.
