alli™ is the only FDA approved, over-the-counter weight loss product. But it’s more than just a pill. It’s an innovative weight loss program. The pill works by preventing your body from absorbing some of the fat you eat.
What makes alli™ different? FDA approval makes alli different. And the customized plan was designed for use with alli capsules to give you the support you need to succeed with weight loss. With your hard work and alli, you can lose about 50% more weight than with just dieting alone. That means if you could lose 10 pounds through dieting, you could lose 15 with alli.
How does it work? Alli blocks about 25% of the fat you eat. Typically, enzymes in your intestines break down fat from food so your body can absorb the fat. But, the active ingredient in Alli attaches to some of these enzymes and prevents them from digesting about a quarter of the fat you eat. Because undigested fat can't be absorbed, it passes out of your body instead of turning into calories.
Does Alli have side effects? The main side effect occurs when you eat a meal with too much fat when taking Alli. If so much fat is blocked that your stool can't absorb it, you might have side effects. Because they are not harmful, we call them "treatment effects." These include loose or more frequent stools, an urgent need to go to the bathroom, or gas with an oily discharge. The excess fat that passes out of your body is in no way harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like oil on top of a pizza. And these treatment effects can be lessened if you stick to reduced-calorie, low-fat meals that average 15 grams of fat per meal.
Warnings: Do not use if you have had an organ transplant. Orlistat interferes with the medicines used to prevent transplant rejection. Do not use if you are taking cyclosporine, have been diagnosed with problems absorbing food or are not overweight.
Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking warfarin (blood thinning medicine), taking medicine for diabetes or thryoid disease, or other weight loss products. Your medication dose may need to be adjusted. Ask a doctor before use if you have ever had gallbladder problems, kidney stones, or pancreatitis.
Notes: It is recommend to take a multi-vitamin once a day with Alli, at bedtime. Orlistat can reduce the absorption of some vitamins.
Recommended Use: For overweight adults 18 and older, take 1 capsules with each meal containing fat. Use with a reduced calorie, low-fat diet and exercise program until you reach your weight loss goal. Most weight loss occurs in the first 6 months.

I started taking Alli in March, combined with a 15 minute work out each morning, and the pounds just melted off, by the end of June I had lost 40 lbs, I continue to take Alli with each meal. The great thing about this product is I don't have to listen to everyone else's opinion on what is good for you and what isn't, this little pill's effect on my body let's me know when something I've eaten isn't going to be good for me. Thank You so much, it really works.
