Weight Loss Drugs

Xenical (Orlistat) prevents between 25 - 30% of dietary fat from being absorbed by blocking the enzymes (i.e. lipase) which break down lipids (fat) so they can be absorbed across the intestinal wall and into the blood stream. It works but if you may get steatorrhoea. (ew!) And it's expensive.... Not so good for me with $$ issues right now :(

Reductil is apparently a sort of amphetamine that revs your metabolism like crazy.

Has anyone tried the Kekwick diet? Like this or this?

What do you think? Have you tried any? Did they work for you?
