How does it work?

Orlistat (the active ingredient in Xenical diet pills) promotes weight loss by decreasing the amount of dietary fat that is absorbed in your gut.

Lipase, an enzyme in the digestive tract, helps break down dietary fat into smaller components so it can be used for energy or stored. Orlistat inhibits the activity of lipase. If you take the drug with a meal, about 25 percent of the fat you consume won't be broken down and will be excreted through bowel movements.

How is it used?

Xenical diet pills should always be used exactly as your doctor has told you. The usual dose is 1 pill of 120 mg with each of the 3 main meals per day. You should take one pill with breakfast, one pill with lunch and one with dinner. It can be taken with water before, during or up to an hour after a meal.

One Xenical pill should be swallowed with a balanced, reduced-calorie meal rich in fruits and vegetables with approximately 30% of the calories from fat. Do not eat fatty foods between meals.

Xenical does what it is supposed to do. I just don't get how most people think they can take certain pills and just lose weight right away... The package insert says you need to eat a balanced diet and exercise! And don't just take a weight loss pill and continue eating as before. I took Xenical for three months and did 1.5 hours of sport 4 times a week. Thanks to Xenical I lost 7 kilos. So everyone: Only take the slimming pills if you do sports and eat healthily
