    So im 6'1 and 230 and mainly fat,I planned on using Alli for a few months to drop a couple pounds.

    I read all the reviews on the website but wanted to ask on her from REAL people.

    If anyone has taken it,how long did it take to lose your first few pounds,eating right.

    Did it make you feel sick,up rate of heart or anything?

    Please post if you have used it

    Is it an appetite suppressant or a stimulant?

    In either case weight loss supplements = waste of money when you're first starting out.

    Alli somehow blocks fat intake into your body. Which is a silly way to try to lose weight, because your body needs fat. Because you can't digest fat, if you eat too much (per their standards, like >25g), you have a massive diarrhea with orange shit coming out.

    Unfortunately, cutting out fat from a diet isn't the right way to lose weight. It's a combination of fat intake and carb intake, combined with total calorie intake. The only benefit Alli might have is that it would force a person to monitor their food choices and hopefully make better decisions.


    I don't need a drug for that - a mirror works just fine.

    Alli is an OTC version of xenical.

    When you fart, better make sure you wipe all the oily residue off your ass.

    I am 6'2" and about 250.

    I have used it a bit over last summer when it first came out (I believe it was the first OTC weightloss drug ever approved by the FDA for weightloss).

    It does what it says - It will aborb fat when you eat and pass it thru your body and when you go to the bathroom, there will be a sheet of oil when you take a #2.

    It also controls what you eat. As someone else said, if you eat something very fatty (they say eat no more than 42% of fat a day), you'll see it when you fart liquid fat out. So it does offer incentive to eat healthy. And you can't just skip one dose (they are suppose to be taken 3x daily), since from my usage it lingers in your system for about 48 hours.

    All in all, it is good. But you should really get a starter kit as it contains a lot of information in it. The Alli message boards are very useful as well. You can't just take it and lose weight. You need to do some type of exercise (30 minutes a day, even just walking fast) and eat right. That's what I am doing now. If you eat right and low in sat/trans fat, all the good fats you actually want to absorb.

    But it's worth a try, just know you'll be punished by it if you still try to have a high-fat diet.

    The news actually said that during the first week you should carry an extra pair of underwear with you to work. In other words, this shit makes you crap your pants.

    working with people who have weight problems is a lot like working with the mentally handicapped.

    Voluntarily taking something which makes you shit fat instead of voluntarily eating a few vegetables instead of a cheeseburger...

    If you need to take it, you'll never lose weight. You need to find the motivation within yourself to stop succumbing to junk food - else, once you stop taking it and there's no crazy shit to be worried about, you'll fall straight off the wagon.

    Just man up.

    "The excess fat that passes out of your body is not harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza. Eating a low-fat diet lowers the chance of these bowel changes. Limit fat intake in your meals to an average of 15 grams."

    alli just ruined pizza for me :wtc:

    That's all marketing hype. It had to be since it was, as already mentioned, a "watered down" version of a prescription drug.

    so if it prevents the absorption of fat, cant you just have a low fat diet w/o the Alli?

    Yep, but most fatties don't have that level of intrinsic motivation.

    Here's a revolutionary fucking idea: diet and exercise for a few months instead of taking a diet pill.
