Excellent results, not a quick fix!

AdvantagesSteady, safe weight loss. No side effects if used properly.

DisadvantagesLoose stools and wind (but only if you don't follow the advice given).

"I started using xenical in September 2005, and I have been taking it ever since. In that time I have lost about 3.5 stone (50lbs or 23kg). But taking it has required something of a change in lifestyle. Xenical works by inhibiting the lipase in your digestive system, so that 30% of the fat in your meal is not absorbed into your body (it therefore goes straight through you, hence the potential side effects). Due to a medical condition I have great ..." Read review

Achieving Zen....

Advantagesit works if it is used CORRECTLY!!!

Disadvantagesdo not use if you are likely to binge eat or not follow a healthy diet.

"...had nothing to lose! '''What is Xenical and how does it work?''' If you have heard of Alli, you will probably already know the main principles of how Xenical works. Basically, Xenical works with your digestive system to block one third of the fat that you eat stopping it being digested. There are all sorts of medical terminology I could use here to explain how the tablets work its magic to ensure that the fat is not absorbed into your body, ..." Read review

Xen and the art of getting thinner Diamond review

AdvantagesIT REALLY WORKS!

Disadvantagesprescription only drug, need to keep visiting the doctor every month

"...about the possibility of using Xenical to help me lose weight, and to my surprise and I have to say joy, he was very keen on the idea and having talked to me about the way Xenical works, and how it could benefit me, he set the wheels in motion for me to begin my long journey. Getting Started: First thing I needed to know was what exactly Xenical was, how it might affect me, and if it would be ok to take alongside my various medications. Xenical ..." Read review

21lb lost in first 4 weeks - that's a result!

AdvantagesDramatic weight loss, plus loss of inches!

DisadvantagesNone, once you get the side-effects under control.

"...no doubt that users of Xenical have experienced mixed results. It is my opinion that those who don't experience success with it, are not following the guidelines properly. There are no shortcuts - and if you're experiencing side effects (other than in your first few days) then you're doing it wrong. Personally, I lost 21 lb in my first four weeks and have now lost two and a half stones - and I'm still working on it! Xenical is available from Boots ..." Read review
