Are the Benefits of This Diet Pill Worth the Cost?

  • Thank you for this article. My doctor recommended I try Alli, but I just had a suspicion that any diet pill is a poor idea. I appreciate the information here; it seems to back up that hunch pretty well. Thanks!
  • I tried it years ago and found it not that effective. Of course I wasn't ready to change the way I ate. If I thought I was going to have a high fat meal, I skipped the pill. IMO not worth it. changing the way I eat, exercise and live was the way to go for me.
  • I used it and it messed up my gall bladder. I didn't have to have surgery but I came close. I was very careful with the low fat diet and did it for a week before I started taking the medicine, but be sure to read the label if you have ever had any issues with your gall bladder, DO NOT take this stuff.
  • I believe I'll leave the pills for a "quick" weight loss and just learn to control portion size, and eat healthy. Fruits and Veggies are the way to go for me! This article was very useful, but I'll stick with eating healthy and exercising.

    Weight loss is one of the biggest problem most of people are facing. Usings pills is a good option but one must consult doctor before using any pill
    My mom is using the pill i.e. Alli. Our family doctor has suggested his pill.
    Alli or Orlistat is intended to lose weight for people who are above 18 years old. People who follow reduced calorie and low fat diet. Alli diet pill is highly recommended to them. I must say it really works my motherlost 7lbs in first two weeks.

    Before taking this pill I read whole information about it from
    ls-solution-to-your-weight-problem/ to know all the benefits and side effects of the pill.
  • I took Alli 5 years ago and had all of the nasty side effects. Oh course I didn't stay on it, but even 5 years later I have to watch what I eat because my body still processes fat and oil in a not so friendly way.
    Great post. I think product works as hard as you do. So the first step is pushing yourself in the gym. I've been using Cellucor product and I love it so far and I know it works for a fact. This is what I've been using if anybody wants to check it out
  • Thank you, good info!
  • Thank you, good info!
  • 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 :
  • Alli can be found at Wal~Mart for anyone looking.

    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.
