Alli can help you lose 50% more weight!


A single search on the internet or even a stroll down to your local drugstore can easily overwhelm you with the sheer range of diet pills available; all promising to help you lose weight. Some of them may actually work, others really do nothing at all, and then there are those that are simply dangerous to use. In such a minefield it is very welcome and comforting to come across a weight loss pill that is FDA approved. Alli, on sale in the U.S. since June 2007, is the only over–the-counter FDA approved weight loss pill.

To dieters Alli offers more than just a weight loss pill – it is supported by a well developed online weight loss program, the “Alli 1-2-3 Start Plan” that offers education, advice and support. After you purchase Alli, the diet is tailored to your individual needs as soon as you register online and create your personal profile. You’ll be provided with feedback, customized guidance, next steps, as well as access to a variety of weight loss resources and meal plans.

The Alli nutritional plan also focuses on aspects such as your general mindset, your relationship with food and exercise and your reaction to setbacks. According to the Alli program your approach to weight loss and your new lifestyle is critical to reaching your goal weight and then maintaining it.

You can use Alli in conjunction with any low fat, calorie-restricted diet, or you can use the diet suggested in the Alli 1-2-3 Start Plan. Alli works by preventing your body from absorbing fat, thereby reducing your calorie intake. Alli contains Orlistat, the same active ingredient as Xenical, which prevents the absorption of about a quarter of all the fat you eat. Since Alli works only in the digestive tract, it does not affect your heart or brain as so many other diet pills do. Alli will not result in you experiencing any jitters nor a racing heart.


The effectiveness of Xenical and Alli as an aid to weight loss has been proven to the satisfaction of the scientific community, to the extent that it is widely prescribed by doctors. Alli contains 60mg of Orlistat whereas Xenical contains 120 mg. Xenical can only be purchased with a doctor’s prescription, while Alli is available without prescription.

While Alli will help to block fat absorption whenever you cheat and eat meals or snacks high in fat, you will not achieve permanent weight loss unless you also start following a healthy lifestyle. Eating fatty meals or snacks while using Alli can result in pretty nasty and embarrassing side effects, including very loose stools and gas with oily spotting. Those singing the praises of Alli regard these side effects as an early warning sign, indicating that they are not eating correctly.

Alli can be of enormous benefit to dieters on low fat calorie restricted diets. It goes without saying that you are heading for disaster when using Alli while on the Atkins Diet. During the Atkins Induction phase more than 60% of your daily calorie intake comes from fat. Popular diets that work well with Alli include Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, NutriSystem, the Volumetrics Eating Plan and Slim-Fast.

Clinical trials have shown that dieters lose about 50% more weight when using Alli in conjunction with their low fat eating plan. To put this differently: where you may lose 10 pounds through dieting alone, you can now lose 15 pounds with Alli, eating the same food and putting in the same physical effort.

Steven L. Burton, vice president, Weight Control, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare had the following to say: “People are fed up being bombarded with hyped products and fad diets that over promise and under deliver. Unlike all the hype, Alli is about straight talk and an honest voice, being real about the fact that losing weight is hard work.” He continued by saying “We’re here to help and to partner with people who want to lose weight with a realistic approach. But we’re not the total answer. The answer is individual commitment in partnership with Alli, and all the support and education the Alli program offers.”

GlaxoSmithKline issued a press statement on Wednesday, the 21st of January 2009, to announce that they received approval from the European Commission to market Alli in all 27 EU member countries. They continue to quote leading European obesity expert, Professor Stephan Jacob from the Cardio-Metabolic Institute, Germany: “Research has shown that consumers are spending millions of Euros each year on fad diets, unproven ‘miracle pills’ and potentially unsafe weight-loss supplements, often without any scientific evidence to back them up. By making a licensed non-prescription product available, consumers will have the option of a proven therapy which can support them with their struggle against weight loss. For many, losing weight can become the catalyst to improvements in their overall health and self-esteem.”
