I have used Xenical personally and have been very pleased with the results. Take heed of avoiding high-fat foods (particularly soups, casseroles and anything like bolognese sauce), since these foods dedinitiely trigger the side-effects which are, frankly revolting.
I have seen friends take this and continue to eat like a horse. This medication will work very well for about the first 45 days or so, providing you eat sensibly (ie forget the cakes, bread, chocolate etc). I have now stopped taking them because I noticed they appeared to do less and less, I guess our bodies "adapt" to the medication. But a good way to start a diet and get some encouragment.
