Are you fed up with fad diets that keep you hungry, “fat burning” pills that only burn a hole in your pocket, and workout programs that just don’t work?
Then “alli” is for you! “alli” is the only FDA-approved, over-the-counter, weight-loss product out there. You’re thinking, “great, just another pill,” right? WRONG! Alli is much more than a pill—it’s an entire comprehensive program that works in conjunction with a sensible diet that helps you lose 50 percent more weight than dieting alone!
“Unlike all the hype, “alli” is about straight talk and an honest voice, being real about the fact that losing weight is hard work,” says Steve L. Burton, vice president of GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Weight Control Division. “We’re here to help and to partner with people who want to lose weight with a realistic approach.”
”alli” or 60 mg orlistat, is not an appetite suppressant and therefore does not affect the brain or the central nervous system. Instead, “alli” works in the digestive system to block about 25 percent of fat from being digested, making fewer calories available to the body. Since calories equal fat, fewer calories equal weight loss.
When our bodies consume fat, they break it down into simpler components for proper digestion. Enzymes in the intestinal tract, called lipases, help with this process. “alli” works by attaching to those lipases and blocking them from breaking down a portion of the dietary fat consumed. The undigested fat continues through the GI tract and is then eliminated.
Of course, as with any drug, “alli” will only work if you use as directed. And as with any weight loss program, a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet must be used in conjunction with this pill. For example, you must not consume a meal with a lot of fat while taking “alli”, since that can result in bowel habit changes, such as having an urgent need to use the bathroom. These changes are not harmful, but can be avoided by sticking to the recommended diet with about 15 grams of fat per meal.
“alli” makes it easy for you, with their book “The alli Diet Plan,” with tips, a fitness program, and more than 200 delicious recipes. Alli has another book as well, with insights, answers and encouragement from weight loss experts. “Are you losing it?” will help you on your way from fat to fit, reminding you that “Losing weight is never easy and nothing worth it ever is.” The maker of “alli” will donate the profits from this book to help prevent childhood obesity.
