Answered questions

People who use Alli...?
How well does it work? Can you simply take it and watch what you eat? Because I don't have time to exercise or anything. How quickly do you lose weight? How do you take it? (How many pills per day..ect.) Does it have any negitive side affects? Any other details I should know? Asked by Edith Gailis 3 months ago.

I have used Alli for about 2 months now (I got it about 2 weeks after it came out). I don't really have time to exercise, but it helps. I've lost 10 lbs. so far. I'm kinda at a stand still now though. I have been for about 2 weeks. Between work, school, sleep, and a social life, I don't have much time to exercise, and I have school coming up in a week. So that will give me less time to have a social life and to exercise. Alli doesn't get rid of the fat and weight you already have. It only blocks what you eat from when you take it. Only take a pill with your meals and NEVER take more than 3 a day. I have only experienced the poop side effect. LoL. Other than that I don't feel any different. So, if you start taking Alli, be prepared to go to the bathroom at all times. I've never passed gas that leave streaks like some people. I've never crapped myself like I heard could happen. All I've had is the orange fat drops with my stool. I've also had diarrhea with orange fat in it, but I don't know if that was a side effect or if I was sick for a few days. But, overall, I think Alli works. You just have to watch what you eat and commit to a low fat/sugar/calorie diet and watch your portion sizes. When I grocery show now, I never get anything with more than 5g of fat in it. Alli has helped me eat a little healthier. I still wear the same size pants, but they fit a little better (not as tight) and I went from an XL shirt to a plain ol' L. I don't really look like I've lost much weight, but I feel like I have. Which, feeling like you've lost weight just feels good. LoL. Good luck if you decide to try it. All medications and stuff affect people differently. So, my side effects may not be your side effects. Good Luck!! Answered by Sherley Kennett 3 months ago.

Actually I don't think it works at all if you are not going to exercise.. It blocks your fat intake from when you start using the product.. It will help you maintain weight. But you will have to exercise to workout off the fat that you already have on you. It won't do anything for what is already on you..The idea is to help you from putting on any extra fat so you can actually burn what you do have off in exercise. If you dont 'exercise..dont take it. Here are my tips to do weight loss naturally. Okay...I only started last monday...All I do is walk one hour every morning. I wear a calorie counter monitor to loose weight by the numbers. I have already lost one pant size and 7 pounds. And its only been 8 days! I am a woman and have three kids and this is the method I use when I gain weight.. I am now at a size two and everyone is always amazed that I have had three kids. Here it is: Helpful Tips for weight loss: 1)A good way to loose weight is to use a calorie counter watch Keep to a 1,200 food intake Add 1,200 plus 3,500 (equals one pound of fat) ...and that is the total amount of calories you need to burn each day. Its actually really easy once you start watching the numbers and it doesn't seem like work or exercise. Its just a matter of changing the way you think about loosing weight. I use this method when i gain some pounds. The first time I did this I went from 168 to 127 2) Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body's principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day. Answered by Sulema Scavotto 3 months ago.

I havent used it but i read an article on msn and it says that you have to eat very little fat. It breaks down the fat quicker and passes it through your system. But you have to stay on a low fat diet or else there are extreme consequences. Like going to the bathroom on yourself. Answered by Wai Zmijewski 3 months ago.

Alli diet pill?
Is this pill only for women? From the looks of their website (myalli.com) they only show pictures of women. Asked by Yen Pierpont 3 months ago.

Alli is complete junk and very dangerous. Just because the FDA has approved it doesn't make it good or safe. Look at all the recalls and drugs that the FDA has passed as safe in the past that have proven to cause many diseases, illnesses, and even death and deformities. The FDA is not your friend. It caters to the people that pay it's bills, the manufacturers. Here's a good statistic to think about. Last year 10,000 to 20,000 maximum people died of using illegal drugs that included Heroine, cocaine, ecstasy, etc. Last year over 106,000 people died in hospitals that were prescribed Legal, doctor prescribed, correctly diagnosed problems and the correct dosages of the drugs designed to address the specific problems the doctors gave to the patients. That is over 10 times the number of deaths due to legal, FDA approved drugs. Does that sound like our war on drugs is directed at the right people? Does that sound like a very safe system we have? Does that sound like the FDA is keeping us safe? The way Alli works is to bind to fat and cause it to pass out of the body. The heart gets its energy from saturated fats. The heart is surrounded by saturated fats. If you do not get enough fat in your body, the liver will not make good bile. Bad bile causes viscous bile to be made and is then sent to the gallbladder. This viscous bile then crystalizes and forms stones that are hard to pass down the bile duct. When you do not eat fat, take Alli, or eat low fat diets, the bile sits in the gallbaldder and thickens. Now you begin to have gallbladder problems. Your fats do not get digested properly. Just look at all the gallbladder operations being performed today. It's epidemic. Does this sound like a healthy regimen? When enough people have tested the Alli drug for the FDA in the public, and many gallbladders are taken out due to this garbage, watch how fast it is recalled. Look at what they tell you that you are supposed to do when you start taking this garbage. They tell you to wear a diaper or stay close to a toilet for the onslaught. It's a total joke and the manufacturers should be ashamed of themselves for doing this to the public. Profit over health is their motto. good luck to you Answered by Sumiko Luckenbach 3 months ago.

Sky High, Alli is the one over-the-counter vitamin product that were authorised by means of the FDA. The just one. Alli works as a fats blocker and blocks 25% of the fats you have got eaten and removes it while you poop. It will also aid you lose 50% extra weight. Sounds like a miracle capsule now does not it? However, and there's a colossal nonetheless, you have got to make a organization dedication not to eat greater than 15 grams of fats according to meal. Why? Well do not forget that I stated it blocks 25% of the fats you have got eaten, good in the event you consume over 15 grams of fats according to meal you are going to extra-then-most probably have disagreeable facet results. The extra fats needs to be removed a few how and in the event you consume over the 15 grams you'll have an pressing ought to move to the toilet with runny stools or you'll have fuel with an oily recognizing. Alli is secure and potent BUT earlier than taking alli you have got to make a decision whether or not or no longer you'll be able to preserve to the volume of fats that's advocated. If you no longer, then you're no longer going to be too pleased together with your facet results. If you're inclined to make a exchange of fifty% extra weight reduction with alli however consume a decrease fats vitamin than alli might be for you. It's a determination that handiest you'll be able to make. Read extra approximately alli and be wholly sincere with your self. Answered by Kent Depass 3 months ago.

google this product and you will find mixed reviews. They are saying that this pill causes more side effects than it is worth. They (the makers of Alli) make you diet while on this pill and if you diet the same exact way without the pill in the long run you will lose the same amount of weight. Don't waste your money. Answered by Mimi Ouillette 3 months ago.

New diet pill Alli?
Is anyone planning to go out and buy the new diet pill tomorrow Alli? Asked by Rosann Terhark 3 months ago.

I think that alli is going to be one of the most popular diet product that you have seen in years. Having the FDA approval is one reason. Second reason is that alli works differently than other diet pills. It works by blocking 25% of the fat you have eaten so that you can't digest it. It doesn't work as a stimulant so it won't make you nervous and won't keep you up at night. However, with alli you do have to make a major commitment to eat a low fat diet. If you have meals that have 15 grams of fat or more you will probably see some unpleasant side effects like the sudden urge to go to the bathroom due to lose stools or gas with an oily leakage. That's why when you purchase alli, you also get access to an alli community with interactive tools, menus, low fat recipes and a forum to ask and answer questions. I don't know if this is available for any size alli (like the trial pack) so you would have to read more about it (it's called myalli). Alli is not going to be for everyone. If you are the type of person who can't pass up a donut or a cheeseburger, then alli probably isn't for you. But if you feel that losing 50% more weight is worth giving up certain foods then alli might be right for you. Only you can make that decision and you have to be honest with yourself when asking yourself can I give up certain foods. Answered by Kyle Oster 3 months ago.

It is dependent how historic you're. If you're an older youngster i wouldnt see a obstacle with it however you will have to seek advice your medical professional first. I am taking them proper now and feature been for approximately four days. I am consuming healthful offerings and feature obvious NONE of the ones facet results, not anything even near.

The diet pill alli?
ok so im 14 and im over weight, i want to lose weight this summer i work out everyday i run 45 min and do 40 to 30 situps plus play out side alot like swimming im drinking slim fast but i want to try alli, has anyone tired it? does it work? do you think its safe for me to try it? Asked by Halina Outhier 3 months ago.

alli only works to block fat. So, unless you eat a lot of fat, don't take alli. It is not a weight loss pill. The people who lose weight on alli are typically over-eaters and they lose weight because the fat blockage decreases the excess calories they intake...I have not taken alli but my boyfriend who is a pharmacist told me he was strictly against it. Alli is known to give people diarrhea. I think it even tells you to wear an adult dipper for the first few weeks. So in short, I wouldn't use Alli. I think diet and exercise will be better for you. Also, because of your age, you can't buy diet pills so stick to diet and exercise- it's the only permanent solution. good luck Answered by Shirley Swinger 3 months ago.

If you have money for a porta-potty... That's all I hear about these natural diet pills. I'm a believer that all you should do is the natural weight loss pills.

All works well for losing weight and contributed to all of my lost weight. Read up about it at theweightlossplace.com where I saved on mine at the time. Good luck and I hope this helps. Answered by Tawnya Imperatore 3 months ago.

I too need to loose a significant amount of weight. I looked into Alli. They actually print a little book for you to purchase and read before you buy. It was like $5 at the grocery store. I'm glad I read it. It says when first taking Alli that it's likely you will have stomach cramps and diarrhea SO STAY CLOSE TO A BATHROOM. If you eat too many grams of fat at one meal you will have stomach cramps and diarrhea. You are allowed only so many grams of fat per meal. You cannot "save them up" and use them all at one meal. It also talked about anal secretions from the medication. I threw the book away as I decided it was not for me. I recommend you do some research before taking this drug.

It's not cheap. I believe it's around $60 or something like that. My sister is taking it and I don't see that it's made a big difference.

Taking alli?
Im going on alli on friday, I started to cut my calories back and fat. Has it be hard for anyone? Asked by Giselle Niblack 3 months ago.

I started taking Alli yesterday (thursday). I started on a low-fat, low-calorie diet on Sunday. I have successfully eaten 5 meals and managed to not "go" on myself at work as other's tell you WILL happen. If you don't start a diet prior to taking the pills (great that you have already started cutting back - you're on the right track!), you will have those nasty side effects. If you eat a lot of fats in one meal, you will have side effects. Alli is not a pill to MAKE you lose weight, alli is a pill to HELP you lose weight. It is exactly what it is advertised as "an alli". It's just there to give us the little boost that we all desperately need when we diet. You will need to still diet the "old fashioned" way which means eating better and keeping active. I have found that keeping a journal of EVERYTHING i have put in my mouth really helps me realize what is high in fat and what is low. I wish you the best of luck and understand how hard the battle of the buldge is for some of us. Answered by Weston Safi 3 months ago.

I would take the negative responses that you get out here with a grain of salt. Many, many people simply oppose taking anything to aid in weight loss and are not afraid to tell you so. Unfortunately we don't all have the metabolism of a 16 year old boy. For the most part people that take Alli don't think it's a magic pill to melt the fat away without any work. If they do believe that, they learn quickly that it doesn't work that way. The bottom line is that your body is different then everyone else'. You may not be able to reach your goals without a diet aid no matter how hard you try. If your weight issues stem from a lack of exercise and a high fat/high calorie diet, then this program will probably work for you. Personally, I find it difficult to eat enough as opposed to eating too much. Either way you really need to strive to follow the guidelines for caloric intake and fat grams. If that means cutting back, then it will be a worthwhile thing in the end. Remember, nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels :) Good luck. Answered by Qiana Passe 3 months ago.

This isn't a "cure all" by any means and there is a lot to consider before taking it. You still have a very restricted diet to follow and slip ups can be embarrassing AND you still have to exercise daily. Even the manufacturer is up front by telling you to wear dark clothing or better yet have a fresh change with you at all times..because of the anal leakage..YIKES!. Some people complain of stomach pains and uncontrolled bowel movements just to name a few...and since this is a very fat restricted diet you will be more susceptible to depression skin problems and brittle hair. Alli could cause a fat-soluble vitamin deficiency. These vitamins include A, D, and E. Alli will also block good fats like Omega-3s. Many experts think this drug is dangerous, especially if it is taken long-term. It might help you lose a little weight but again you have to make lifestyle changes...Good luck...Let us know how you're doing.. Answered by Lashay Linhares 3 months ago.

dont do it! alli blocks your body from absorbing fat, where do you think that goes? out your end. they advise you not to take it while working, becasue you indeed may need a new pair of pants! there have been times where people, yes leaked crap.

What do you think of Alli?
I have bought it, however have not started it yet. I keep hearing mixed things about it. What are your thoughts? Asked by Francisco Hutcherson 3 months ago.

When I first heard about it a two months ago (give or take) I thought it sounded really interesting, and I was almost willing to try it....until I checked their website. If you haven't read the info on the website, or even in the booklets since you have them, there are a lot of weird and gross side effects if you don't follow the directions closely. One of the biggest turn offs for me was when they mention that you should wear dark clothes, and carry a change of clothes with you at all times, until you know the side effects. Some of the side effects are as follows: Oily stool (imagine looking into the toilet to see oil..gross!) Orange colored oily dischage If you feel you have to fart...DON'T DO IT!! Run to the bathroom...it could be discharge And this was just some of the side effects the site listed. Basically, if you haven't done your research yet, the pills block your bodie's fat absorbtion. You are limited to 15 grams of fat per meal. Anything over that and your body won't absorb it. So it's got to go somewhere else. Where? Out. By any ways necessary. I'm sure the pills work great for those who have a lot of will power, but if you aren't the slightest bit serious about losing weight, and if you don't think you can or will follow the directions "to the T", then I probably wouldn't even think about trying the pills. Answered by Fermin Pieffer 3 months ago.

I started taking it about 2 months ago and it is not a bad pill to take if you are committed. You have to reduce the amount of fat that you eat or you will have side effects as listed on the instructions. It is not a medication where you will drop ten pounds if you don't exercise and eat right and it states that you will only lose a pound or two a month. So far I have lost about ten pounds but I am not sure how much of that is contributed to the pill or the changes that I have made in my diet and exercise routine. It is better than some medications in the sense that it is only absorbed through your digestive system and not the blood stream so it doesn't cause any other side effects besides stomach issues *sick tummy*. It is not a bad medication but you have to be committed to change. Answered by Benton Palis 3 months ago.

Alli........?
does it work better if you take it with all meals even if healthy like salads ect. or only ones that contain some fat? Asked by Emmanuel Beall 3 months ago.

Since Alli only blocks fat, it doesn't really do anything when you take it with healthy (non-fatty) meals. Although the label says to take it with each meal, I think that's just a marketing ploy to get you to use up your supply faster. I only use it when I eat an extra fatty meal, like a big rib eye steak or something, or Mexican food (greasy enchiladas with cheese, etc.). So, it may just be a waste of money to use it on healthy foods that are low in fat. Concentrate on using it when you are "bad" :-). Although the prescription form (Xenical) worked better, Alli does work. Answered by Leonard Bodon 3 months ago.

I started taking Alli as of this past Saturday and been following the program. It tells you that for best results to take it with each meal. I've been taking it with each meal even the ones that don't have fat. But honestly to tell you the truth, I'm going to start taking it only with food that contains some fat. Because if you think about Alli blocks most of your vitamins of your food and if you eat fat free meal, then why waste your money on that extra pill? Especially if the 60 pills are only good for 20 days if you take them three times a day. I also have been restricting myself to fatty foods because I'm really afraid of the so called treatment effects. Remember to exercise and you will be fine. Feel free to msg me if you would like.

Tried alli??
I had a baby last year and I'm still breast feeding (hence the weight gain).... Asked by Verdell Woodling 3 months ago.

Hi! I havent tried alli- but i have used ( on many occassions ) Xenical. xenical is the stronger version to alli. First thing- Alli has no big side effects, since it works only in your gut and it NOT absorbed into your blood. What it does is prevent fat from being absorbed from the food that you JUST ate. So , i would suggest you only use the tablet if you just had some greasy food. if you just had a salad it wont make sense taking it since there isnt any fat to block!! The major problem is the leaky oil that "comes out" when you use the washroom. Be sure to wear a panty liner ( just in case) besides that, i would actually recommend xenical since it blocks 30% of fat, whereas alli only block 25% Answered by Delora Hartling 3 months ago.

Alli (orlistat) works by decreasing the amount of fat that gets absorbed from your food intake. Alli can bring down the fat absorption by up to 30%. The person above said that alli has no big side effects, but unfortunately these do come with some side effects, mostly GI related (nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, etc.). As to its effects on breastfeeding, there aren't any data available to show that the drug is safe during breastfeeding. I would recommend staying away from this drug, and look for better options to lose weight. Answered by Francene Kincy 3 months ago.
