Started taking Xenical

Only been taking Xenical for a few days, but started getting one of the side effects (oily stools) and I'm just concerned about what I'm eating. I've been having a really strict diet, low calories (the most consumed 1700) since I started, no snacking, and yesterday I had my first weight watchers dinner, which is when the symptoms began. Is this due to the weight watchers meals? Is my body adjusting? I had a small portion of food at a restuarant 2 days ago, and the food was probably quite fatty (only consumed 1500 calories that day though) can it take that long for the fat to come out? Just worried weight watchers meals are evil...

    Hi. I honestly don't trust weight watchers at all. I know people who actually put on weight with it. Just stick to a low fat diet and low calorie and that would help you a lot. Weight watchers is a waste of money and you don't really need that as long as you choose carefully what you eat.
