Our expert says:
Xenical prevents your body from absorbing any fat that may occur in the diet and this fat then passes straight out of the body. Thus if you eat any fat, you will develop very loose stools that can lead to 'accidents'. This will help you to stick to a diet that is practically devoid of fat. By reducing your fat intake to more or less zero, you will also reduce your energy intake (for every gram of fat you don't eat, you 'save' 37 kJ) and it is the reduction in energy that promotes weight loss. If your energy intake is lowered, your body has to use up its fat stores.
