• follow a well-balanced, reduced-calorie, low fat diet. Try starting this diet before taking orlistat.
• orlistat works by preventing the absorption of some of the fat you eat. The fat passes out of your body, so you may have bowel changes.

• eating a low fat diet lowers the chance of having these bowel changes
• for every 5 pounds you lose from diet alone, orlistat can help you lose 2-3 pounds more. In studies, most people lost 5-10 pounds over 6 months.
Stop use and ask a doctor if:
• you develop itching, yellow eyes or skin, dark urine or loss of appetite. There have been rare reports of liver injury in people taking orlistat.
