I am at the end of week one and have just weighed. In my first week (well 6 days) I have lost 2lb. I am chuffed that I have a loss but I was expecting it to be more as I have been so good. When I read other forums people are saying they have lost more in a shorter space of time. Also (not that I am complaining too much) but I have had no side effect whatsoever. Has anyone else had slow weight loss with no side effects? Did you continue loosing at a slow rate? Or did the weight loss increase after a week or two? Or did it not work n weight loss slowed to a hault?

    Thank you for you reply.

    for breakfast I will either have a bowl of bran flakes with skimmed milk, or a small pot of porridge.

    lunch is usually a salad, either ham or grilled chicken with the usual tomatoes, cucumber lettuce etc. I have been adding a very small amount of cheese to this and a low fat salad cream. The other day though I had X1 warburton thins bread with ham and pickle

    dinners this week have been, a pasta bake, grilled chicken with salad and pitta's, jacket potatoes, and wholemeal rice with chicken. 

    I do do usually have snacks during the day but this will be a mix up of strawberries, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, grapes, apples, carrot (raw) etc and maybe a slice of soreen bread.

      Sounds like your eating all the right things. Hopefully you will see the loss you are after on your first weigh in. I am going to pursue with the tablets in the hope I continue to loose each week even if it is only 2lb. I would like to get down to 11st 6lb, I am 13st 2lb as of weigh in this morning. I'm going away on holiday on the 21st July, the close I get to 11st 6lb the better haha xx

    I have just started week 9 and I have only lost 8 pounds sad. I have had no side effects and I average only 12 grams of fat for the day. Today I've had only 8 grams. I have measured myself all over and have lost 110cms in total so that's encouraging but wish I could see it on the scales. Im vegetarian and eat lots of steamed veges and salad. So on average you are doing well! ! I dont know if I will continue after this month coz they cost me a fortune thru the doctors

    Thank you anloblue for your reply. do you exercise much? I must admit this is my failure as I work 9am till 6pm plus every other weekend so don't get much time to exercise. When I am not at work I do run about doing all the house work but again once I have finished, the last think I want to do is go for a job or the gym. I wonder though should I do more exercise I may see a bigger loss?

      I am not allowed to exercise at the moment as I have a slipped disc and have just started physio. That is why I was put on orlistat, as I was using a cross trainer and was worried about weight going on while I recover from the back pain. I just think for me, I may well have lost the same amount without the tablets due to my low fat intake. I follow all the 5g per 100g etc and no side effects means its the right diet. I am sure exercise will speed it up though! Maybe it just takes more time to kick in with some people. Measurements is good to try though.

    Sorry to hear you slipped a disc. I hope you have a quick recovery.

    My dr put me on oralist because I have psos and I had my gallbladder removed in September last year and have gained 2st since then even with healthy eating. I am really hoping this works otherwise I don't know what to do. My weight was going up and up and I was getting so down about it. I have been using a slendertone belt everyday too to help tone the wobbly bits. I am off to Turkey at the end of July so wanted to loose as much as possible by then, and keep it all off.
