Started taking orlistat last month weighed in with the nurse today and have not lost anything. Doctor told me I didn't need to exercise to see weight loss but as it comes off I will have to increase gradual exercise
Orlistat is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Your daily intake of fat, protein, and carbohydrates should be evenly divided over all of your daily meals. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.
Avoid a diet that is high in fat. High-fat meals taken in combination with orlistat can increase your risk of unpleasant side effects on your stomach or intestines.
