    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 http://www.amazon.com/Cellucor-Supplement-

  • 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 !!!! - 1/22/2014 7:02:24 PM

  • 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. - 8/4/2012 12:17:27 PM

    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 - 6/8/2012 10:59:52 PM
  • 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. - 2/24/2012 7:55:52 AM
  • 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 - 1/21/2012 1:16:25 AM
  • 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! - 9/30/2011 3:56:03 AM

  • Thank you for this information about alli. I had seen this product advertised, but was not familiar with it. This article was very useful. - 9/24/2010 5:00:30 PM
  • 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!! - 9/2/2010 9:25:24 AM
  • I wouldn't use it just because those side effects are insane!! No thanks to uncontrollable diarrhea! - 7/28/2010 9:07:29 PM
