I never took the pill and never wanted too BUT it was Alli' website that I first used to learn good healthy information on making changes to learn to eat healthy. I used it pretty regularly never taking the meds until I found SP. I have know as long as I have wanted to lose weight that you have to change your eating habits but never did. Instead I used other methods for weight loss. it was after I made the commitment to myself in 2010 to actually learn how to change my eating habits and learn to live a healthier life that I learned it was NOT all about losing weight !!!!
Thank you SP !!!!

I found the greasy poops and stench to be untenable.

It's good. Me also having many tips for the weight loss. For more details you can refer the following link :
I took it several years ago and lost about 10 pounds. Our finances changed and I had to stop taking it. I didn't really have the side effects they warned about, except once when we were on vacation. We ate at a buffet and I had more fats in the foods than I usually ate… it got me then. I have always been like that though. If I eat too much fat, within an hour or two, I have diarrhea side effect… which is kind of nice if/when I am constipated. Sorry if that was TMI.

I haven't seen Alli in any drug store nor department store. Is it really off the market? I can also swear by it. When you eat those high calorie food yiu can see the oil float on top of the water after you had a bobble
Follow up: I'm still taking Alli intermittently and have not experienced horrible side effects. Alli is half the strength of the prescribed version. Being completely honest, I've doubled the dose before a meal a couple times and still not had side effects. I do not use Alli daily, 1 meal a week normally. I take it before a splurge meal, bday party, luncheon, etc. You can get a coupon from their website to help w/ the cost. I will continue to use as part of my strategy.
I just purchased my Alli and after reading the reviews on this site and webmd I am encouraged. From what I gather from everyone it is a motivator. I know webmd stated that clinic studys stated a people on the pill lost 50% more. That's not a little bit of weight. That means for every 10lbs I lose I lose an extra 5lbs. I am a fat eater. Steaks, cheeseburgers, chicken wings, and pizza. I love meat. So this will help motivate me to put the Donatos down. I worked out for about 4 months last year and dieted and lost 8lbs. I got really discouraged at the 2lb a month weight loss when I was trying so hard. I am hoping this will give me the extra boost I need. Their meal plan also states I can eat more calories than before. I know I was worried that I may have went into starvation mode eating 1300 calories and going to kickboxing for 1hr a day 2xs a week. I can't wait to get my shipment on Weds.
For me $40 is nothing. You get 60 pills. That's almost a month's worth. I spend more than that by myself when I got to the cheesecake factory and etc 3 -4xs a month. So I will actually save money because I won't be able to over indulge with a 28oz ribeye like I so love! lol
I've been using Alli for several weeks now, I've never experienced any horrible side effects? When someone dares to eat high fat or fried foods with a pill that blocks the absorption of some fat are asking for trouble? Common sense and Alli are a nice team! Don't be scared of Alli, it could help many people get some weight off and begin a healthier lifestyle!
hello.. i tried this pill bfore my wedding and i lose like 20 pounds in 3 months.. was WOW... no side effects or something. i ate some of Low fat diet but no at all.. sometimes i ate my pizza , cake . ..was nice!! and i would try it again..
my doctor wants me to try it; but after reading this I will stick with my original decision--the money isn't worth the trouble, I'll stick with sparkpeople and keep losing the sensible, although possibly slower than she likes, way!!
