Xenical works by blocking the absorption of fat into your body. It does not simply suppress your appetite. Instead, Xenical alters the activity of digestive enzymes that break down fat molecules in food. Fats are large molecules and must be broken down by enzymes in the gut before they can be absorbed into your body.
With Xenical, about one-third of this fat will pass through the gut, undigested. By reducing fat absorption, Xenical helps you to reduce your weight, maintain the lower weight, and minimise any weight regain. Studies show that Xenical can also help reduce the risk of high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Xenical can assist your weight loss program.
What about other weight loss products?
All other prescription medicines for weight loss act on the brain to reduce your appetite. But to get to the brain, these medicines must enter the blood stream, and this can lead to side effects. Therefore, these “appetite suppressants” are for short-term use only. Xenical is one of the best weight loss products available.
Xenical does not enter the blood stream, does not act on the brain, and does not reduce your appetite. It simply blocks the digestion and absorption of about 30% of the fat you eat.
What is the dosage for Xenical?
The recommended Xenical dose is one 120-mg capsule taken three times daily with main meals. Xenical can be taken during the meal, or up to one hour afterwards.
Will I have to change my diet?
Choosing a healthy, lower-fat diet, combined with exercise, is always a good idea for any weight loss program. It is recommended that Xenical be taken with a well-balanced, calorie-controlled diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables. Your daily intake of fat, carbohydrate and protein should be evenly distributed over your three main meals, with about one-third of your daily calories from fat.
For the best results, try to avoid snacking on fatty foods such as cookies, chocolate or chips. You’ll look better and feel better, too!
