The name of the diet pills is "Orlistat 120 mg". Diet pills are taken 3 times per day with each meal that contains some fat ( no more than 30 % of the calories for that meal). You may take them with your meal or up to 1 hour after eating. 21 pills are included in this plan.
If you skip a meal or you eat a meal that does not contain any fat, skip your diet pill dose for that meal.
The fat content of your daily diet should not be greater than 30% of your total daily caloric intake. For example. if you eat 1200 calories per day, no more than 360 of those calories should be in form of fat.
Read the label of all food items you consume, paying special attention to the number of servings per container. Your doctor, nutrition counselor, or dietitian can help you develop a healthy eating plan.
Diet pills are only a section of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, and weight control. Your daily intake of fat, protein, and carbohydrates should be evenly divided over all of your daily meals. Follow your diet, diet pills dosage, and exercise routines very closely.
Diet pills can make it harder for your body to absorb certain vitamins, and you may need to take a vitamin and mineral supplement while you are taking your diet pill. Take the supplement at bedtime, or at least 2 hours before or after you take orlistat.
