Hi there

Just wondering if anyone has tried to use the XLS medical or other meds to help lose weight and whether they actually helped you? Of course along side exercise and a good diet. Thank you!

Hi, I don't know of anyone around who is using this at present but someone may turn up. We've had queries in the past about Orlistat - sounds as tho this is similar. Generally negative comments but some saw short term success.

You've mentioned elsewhere that previously you've tried the Michael Mosley 800 cal diet and it's been successful. Maybe it has been moving on after that initial (pretty extreme) plan that has been the problem. I suggest you join in with the daily diary and start posting your meal plans when you're ready.

I find this a good, simple, sustainable plan: you might like it. Just check if any of the fake foods have crept into your diet and build on the real foods, according to your taste phcuk.org/wp-content/upload...

thanks BridgeGirl 😊

With MM diet I basically changed what I was eating and actually the 800kc sounds tough but eating the med type of diet and adding things like quinoa really helped to feel full. I probably fluctuated between 800-1000kc but I saw my blood dugar come down and lost a dress size. I am still a size 14 so the good thing is I didn’t go up again! But it is 8 weeks and then you go gradually go up again but having learnt to eat better. Let’s see if Incan start this again! Will post what I eat.

It sounds like it's worth giving it a go again. And you can be planning for the next stage as you go along

If you're eating a realy healthy diet and doing realy beneficial exercise you shouldn't need to waste your money on meds.

thank you meg4u. Yes please do send it my way. I can take a look. I tried XLS med last night for the first time. Took a tablet before food and I am pleased to say that if nothing else it has brought my glucose level to 7.7 from 8.7 the morning before. I am just looking for a small boost to lose weight as I find it extremely difficult to shift anything for a number of years. Thank you to everyone who provided their perspective. I am not looking at taking meds long term as I am changing my eating habits. I am hoping this will give me a little much needed boost.
