Women Losing Weight
XenicalXenical helps to reduce and maintain your weight, as well as to minimize any weight regain. Xenical (orlistat) is a weight loss medication that inhibits the absorption of fat in your body rather than suppressing your appetite. Xenical is useful for long term use and has been shown to be effective for 1-2 years. Dietary fats are inhibited from being absorbed by using Xenical and this allows about 30% of the fat eaten in a meal to pass through the digestive tract undigested.
Uses of Xenical
Xenical is a prescription weight-control medication useful for the long-term treatment of significant obesity.
When you think of losing weight, the first things that probably come to your mind are either those "lose weight fast !!" Articles that are in every magazine and newspaper in the world that usually never work and are writen by some "personal trainer" that has no idea what their talking about...
THE FAT MUST GO! Stay away from fat! Get rid of all the chips and candy. No more fast food, nothing fried. No more cookies, no more cake, no more of these saturated fats. There is no question about it and there is no way around it, get rid of these types of foods. Don't get me wrong, there is no way to eat 0 grams of fat every day
LOWER THE CARBS! Most people think that it is fat that makes people fat and that just by eating less fat, they are on their way to weight loss! WRONG! They are only half right. Carbs are just as bad (if not worse) than fat when it comes to losing weight. Stay away from high carb foods. Carbs will eventually turn into fat. Foods like bread, rice, pasta, potatos, etc. are high in carbs.
WATER! Drink water! Get rid of the soda, get rid of the beer, and get rid of the sports drinks. Drink around a half gallon of a day, more if you can. Spread it out throughout the day, just like your 5 meals. Yes thats alot of water, but its that water that will give you energy and speed your weight loss.

Food and Drug Administration
Losing Weight Safely
The Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, is part of the United States Government. FDA requires most food labels to list the amount of important nutrients the food gives you. Use food labels to choose healthy foods for losing weight.
If You're Overweight, Slim Down for Better Health
Overweight people have an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and other illnesses. Losing weight reduces the risk. This brochure tells you how to lose weight safely.
Ask Your Doctor About Sensible Goals
Your doctor or other health worker can help you set sensible goals based on a proper weight for your height, build and age.
Men and very active women may need up to 2,500 calories daily. Other women and inactive men need only about 2,000 calories daily. A safe plan is to eat 300 to 500 fewer calories a day to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week.
Exercise 30 Minutes
Do at least 30 minutes of exercise, like brisk walking, most days of the week.
The idea is to use up more calories than you eat. You need to use up the day's calories and some of the calories stored in your body fat.
Eat Less Fat and Sugar
This will help you cut calories. Fried foods and fatty desserts can quickly use up a day's calories. And these foods may not provide the other nutrients you need.
Tips for Cutting Calories and Fat
- Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, and grain products like bread and rice.
- Eat only small, single servings of foods high in fat or calories.
- Eat less sugar and fewer sweets.
- Drink less alcohol or no alcohol.
- Choose foods whose labels say low, light or reduced to describe calories or fat.
- Choose 1 percent or skim milk products and reduced fat cheeses.
- Replace ice cream with fat-free frozen yogurt.
- Replace sour cream with fat-free or low-fat plain yogurt.
- Make sure fish, poultry and meat are lean. Trim skin and fat.
- Broil, roast or steam foods.
Eat a Favorite Rich Food, Sometimes
That may keep you from craving it. But eat only a small amount.
Make sure your other foods that day are low in fat and calories.
Eat a Wide Variety Of Foods
Variety in the diet helps you get all the vitamins and other nutrients you need.
Watch Out for Promises of Quick And Easy Weight Loss
Fad diets aren't good because they often call for too much or too little of one type of food. As a result, you may not get important nutrients you need daily.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.
What About Diet Pills?
Diet pills you buy without a prescription won't make a big difference in how much you lose each week or how long you keep the weight off. If you do use them, read the label carefully. Because of possible side effects, like high blood pressure, never take more than the listed dose.
Also, be careful about taking cough or cold medicines with diet pills you buy without a prescription. These medicines may contain the same drug used in diet pills, or a similar drug with the same effects. If you take both products together, you may get too much of the same type drug. This can hurt you.
Before taking a cough or cold medicine while using diet pills, ask your pharmacist if it's OK.
Prescription diet pills may help some people. If you use them, follow the doctor's directions carefully.
