I started at 72kgs 160 lbbut after 6 DAYS of taking this pill, I lost 4kgs 9 lb!!. I am so happy about the progress and I hope this will continue. I am planning take this for about 6 months so I can get back to my normal weight of 50kgs - that was my normal weight before I gave birth.
Hopefully, this amazing weight loss would continue. If you eat half decently. That being said you will leak things from your but on occasion.
However weight loss is worth it. Yes I find this pill very good I've currently been on this medication for only 2 weeks and I have already lost a stone with no side effects due to sticking to a low fat diet but this hasn't stopped me from eating my naughty treats I just now make a homemade healthier version, which if I'm honest I enjoy more there are a lot of healthy options of food out there to trick your mind into thinking something naughty.
Yes No changes I have been taking Xenical for 9 days and no changes to my weight. I don't eat fatty food really but I carry abdominal fat and was hoping this would be a little gone. What's everyone else's eating plan like when taking this. Floss asked on Mar 07, 2016 Answer this Yes I don't see why not.

How should I take Xenical?
As for how much weight I have lost if any I am not sure, my doc is away until the end of next week. The follow up appointment is booked for then and we will see how effective the treatment has been.
I will post the results as soon as I get them, hopefully, this time we will be on the right track. I have been taking xenical for 1 week.
And my doctor asked what I was already doing to lose weight and I was happy to report that I had already lost 9lbs walking and swimming. I do not believe she would have give me the script if I had been doing nothing. What I like about Xenical is that it is most certainly NOT a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet.
