Discussions that mention xenical

Diet & Nutrition board

Has anyone used Xenical to lose weight? Its a perscription drug. Its suppose to prevent 30% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body. Its not cheap.
Hey I am on Xenical. Since January and I lost 25 pounds. I am on a low fat diet. The pill only lets your body take 30% fat daily the rest you lose. (that is the bad part...where the side affects come in if you eat too much fat) It works and yes it is expensive. I do recemend this pill, but only if you can stick to a low fat diet. Cause if not you will spend endless hours in the bathroom.. (thats the bad part, but also good, cause its getting rid of fat). Good Luck

congrats dip!!

i have a ? if u take xenical with a LF diet, does that mean yr body isnt getting fat cuz if its already LF, and then it traps it, theres nutthin left.
Xenical gets rid of the fat if you eat more than you are supposed to. Like if you have a bad day and eat more fat that supposed too.. It makes you stick to your diet.. if you don't you pay... by spending lots of time in the bathroom

I'm confused-I thought Xenical gets rid of 30% of fat you eat at a meal, not gets rid of all but 30% of fat. I hope it's the way you say!
Toasty is right. What I have read about Xenical is that it keeps 30% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body.
Hi everyone, I have the xenical tablets. I got them for 90.00 for 84 pills. I took 2 of them. I don't want to take anymore. I guess I am one of those people that just can't take them. If anyone would like to purchase them from me, I will check the boards and see. I was hoping that this would be the product for me. I don't like the side effects that come along with them. Let me know, and thanks for listening.
