Hey everyone I started taking my Orlistat today, I got them last week from my doctor so enjoyed my last week of take aways and alcohol and here I am smile I have alot of weight to loose, Im not sure how much exactly I would like to loose but id like to lose enough to feel comftable in my own skin, Im sick of having no confidence or self esteem

Today ive eaten healthy and enjoyed it, I just hope I can stay motivated.

Just a quick question.. Can I drink alcohol? I go out every week with my friends, I usually drink wine, spirits, shots so obviously I wont be drinking them.. Am I ok to drink vodka with diet drinks like diet coke/lemonade etc?

Good Luck everyone, Stacey x

    vodka and soft drinks won't have much of any fat in them but they do have a lot of calories so you will have to factor that in to the diet.

    don't forget that the tablets only work on fat intake and not calories

    what you need to remember that these tablets work on the fat intake - any effects will come as a result of too much fat, with that said a high calorie diet is not good for people trying to loose weight. a healthy non dieting woman should consume 2000 a day, a dieting woman should aim for lower, most on here seem to aim for between 1200 and 1500 a day.
