Does Alli work and what are the side effects?


Question: I find it really hard to lose weight, and think that I may lose weight faster with Alli? Does this diet pill actually work and what are the side effects?

Answer: Alli is one of very few weight loss pills that are actually FDA approved, so it can be argued that it is safer for you than the majority of untested diet pills available on the market. Alli works by preventing your body from absorbing about 25% of your total fat intake; thereby reducing your daily calorie intake. Alli is in essence then a fat blocker. Clinical trials have shown that Alli can help you lose 50% more weight than you would have if you only followed a healthy low fat diet.

Because Alli works only on the digestive tract, its side effects are limited. If you do not stick to a low fat diet, the use of Alli it can have some very embarrassing side effects that may require you to start carrying around an extra pair of undies. If you stick to a low fat calorie controlled diet though, the only “side effect” should be that you may soon need to invest in new outfits!

Just remember – while Alli can only help you lose weight a bit faster, the real work is in making sure that you follow a healthy low fat diet. While Alli can provide that extra boost; it will not help you lose weight in any sustainable way unless you change your eating habits permanently.
