Do Alli Diet Pills Really Work

What the Heck are Alli Diet Pills ?

There are dozens of different diet pills to choose from. Some are natural remedies that can be found in a health food store. Others are prescribed by physicians and taken under their direction and care. And still others can be found online. Alli diet pills are the over the counter version of Orlistat, also known as tetrahydrolipstatin. It’s sold over the counter in the United States by GlaxoSmithKline.
How Does it Work?

These weight loss supplements are approved for adults over the age of 18 and is designed to be used as part of a complete lifestyle adjustment, which includes exercise and dietary changes. They work by telling your body to decrease the amount of fat it absorbs in your intestines. It disables lipase, which is an enzyme that your body uses to break down dietary fat so it can be stored for energy. With Alli the fat is simply eliminated from your body when you use the bathroom.

If you’re taking these pills, you’re directed to take it with meals that contain a little bit of fat, but no more than 15 grams worth. If your meal has too much fat it can cause significant stomach distress.
Does It Really Work?

Alli does work. However, it’s intended to be used together with diet and exercise. Studies have shown that it increases the average weight loss by approximately five pounds a year when compared to people who have not taken Alli and are losing weight through diet and exercise alone. Other studies have indicated that someone taking Orlistat will lose 50% more weight than someone losing weight with diet and exercise alone.

Don’t take these diet pills if you are taking cyclosporine, if you’ve had an organ transplant, or if you have a digestive disorder and problems absorbing food. Additionally, if you take them you must also take a multi-vitamin. It reduces your body’s ability to absorb fat soluble vitamins. If you tend to splurge or eat a high fat diet, you’ll experience extremely unpleasant side effects including gas, bloating, diarrhea, and an urgent need to eliminate.
Is Alli Right for You?

If you have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 25, if you’re committed to watching what you eat so that your meals contain less than 15 grams of fat and you’re willing to add regular exercise into your lifestyle then Alli may work well for you. If you’re taking other medications or have health conditions or challenges then it’s important to talk to your doctor before taking Alli.
