I'm currently using Alli. I've been on it for about a week. I haven't had any treatment effects, but then again, I've been watching what I eat and keeping my meals lowfat. I took it with my Burger King Chicken Whopper sandwich and didn't have any treatment effects. I did skip it when I went out for pizza, even though it was thin crust. I didn't want anything surprising to happen when I was not at home.
The good thing about it is that you are afraid of treatment effects, so you avoid fat as much as possible. Now that I've had no bad experiences, I feel as I'm taking a placebo! The weight I've lost is probably more attributed to watching what I eat, tracking calories, and avoiding sweets and fried foods. I started at 152 and am at 148. I lost the most weight in the first couple of days, but I've slipped on the last 3 days and haven't had any weight lost.
The thing about Alli why its so popular is because its the first one to be approved by the FDA. I've done tons of research on all kinds of diet pills. I like the ones, if you feel a need for them, that have a low propietary blend(500 mg or less). Any higher and that's where the jitters come in. Right now I'm trying Deep from trachealth.com and its good. I only take one after breakfast and one after lunch. none at night. This one was rated the top diet pill of 2006. Or something like that. Here is a really good website to use. www.skinnyondiets.com or dietpillreviews.com
It lists all kinds of pills, reviews, etc..... If you are looking. People always put down diet pills but if you need just a little extra boost and are careful in what you pick (no ephedra) then I don't see the harm. Mine also has 100mg of Hoodia. Just enough to curb my cravings but not make me stop eating alltogether.
Good luck! Contact me with any questions or support.
True! A co-worker of mine took the prescription version of this newly OTC med. That is a big 10-4! She described it as (very indelicate) a wet-fart. It stained her underwear and her clothing...permanently! I say use at your own risk.
To be a champion, you must be willing to pay a greater price than your competition will ever have to pay.
In order to finish the race, you must first start.
Regarding Alli...Well, I was watching Corbert (maybe) the other night and heard him reading the warning label on this product. If public gastric complications may embarrass you, you may want to re-think the Alli. It even stated that you may want to wear dark pants while ingesting the product, in case of involuntary accidents! I cannot say for sure whether this was satirical or actual, its hard to tell with Jon Stewart and Steven Cobert, but it shouln't be too hard to determine with a good thorough Google search.
Has anyone heard of or used Alli? I saw it the other day in my local health food store and it claims to help in dieting by helping to block fat intake. The side of the box said it has a few nasty side effects that some people may suffer, which includes diaherra.
Just curious as to others people experiences and or opinions.
