In brief: Foods High In Fat
Xenical is a lipase inhibitor that decreases the absorption of fatty acids through the GI system. This means that if you take xenical and eat a meal that is high in fat, the fatty acids will not be absorbed and will pass further into the GI system .
. . Which can lead to bloating, flatulence (gas), and diarrhea. Foods high in fat are: butter, oil, red meats, eggs, avocados etc.
