Have you heard of Alli? (pronounced AL-eye)
Many people were surprised but more were ecstatic when the FDA formally endorsed the first weight loss drug to be available over the counter without prescription. Yes, that is correct, you can buy these diet pills over the counter.
The pill is a reduced strength version of the prescription weight loss drug Xenical (also known as Orlistat) which is a very popular prescription diet pill. As with other drugs of this type, this plan consists of using the pill in conjunction with a traditional weight loss program. In other words, you can’t just take a pill and wake up skinny.
How Does It Work?
The diet pill works by blocking a large percentage of fat from being digested. Therefore, if you eat a high fat meal, you are going to have some personal problems (see side effects!)
Users of this pill usually take one with each meal. Meals should consist of less than 15 grams of fat. Folks, that is not much. Please be sure you are ready to eat this way before plopping down money to get this diet pill.
Most weight loss with this plan occurs within the first 6 months. Also remember that many people who lose weight with diet pills put it right back on as soon as they quit taking them. So,to make sure they keep their weight off permanently, many simply continue taking their weight loss medications indefinitely. They do it along with eating a low-calorie diet and exercising properly and regularly.
I wish people wouldn’t do this but many do. Sadly, being overweight can cause desperation and poor decisions in our weight conscious society.
What Are The Side Effects?
Uugh, do you really want to know?
Okay, here goes:
More frequent stools that may be hard to control
This pill will do exactly what it says.
Increased motivation to eat low fat meals.
Can have side effects.
Can be a little pricey.
If you really are going to eat a low-fat diet and exercise every day, do you need a diet pill? Probably not. For me, the chance of embarrassment in a social situation (if you know what I mean)would keep me from using this pill. As you consider Alli as a weight-loss aid, make sure that you make every effort to exercise, change your eating habits and adjust any other lifestyle factors that have contributed to your excess weight.
Remember,this pill isn’t the easy answer to weight loss and is meant only to supplement — not replace — a healthy diet and regular exercise. Consult your doctor before beginning this program. Please….
