The one thing you definitely should not do is try these things, unless your doctor recommends it and oversees it. At age 19, healthy eating habits should rule the day.
I'm a bit older than you with recovering from diabetes and hypothyroidism. Things you can avoid now by controlling your eating habits and lifestyle. At one time I weighed 468 pounds and am down to 263. Having been so very overweight, I had far more serious problems to overcome and those things outweighed possible side effects from orlistat.
If anything, I hope I'm a good example of what to avoid so you don't have to go through what I've been through.
