Orlistat Diet Plan

Staying healthy and losing weight means eating the right diet.

Your perfect diet should be nutritionally balanced, with roughly 30 percent of the calories you consume coming from fat. It should be rich in fruits and vegetables, and three main meals a day will help you maintain a healthy daily intake of the fats, proteins and carbohydrates your body needs.

The ideal Orlistat diet is mildly hypocaloric, which means you will be eating slightly fewer calories than you burn. This helps the weight loss process, and as a dietary strategy comes recommended by many health experts for long-term weight loss.
