This product did not work for me at all. Definitely makes you go to the bathroom with waste that will stain your toilet.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

2

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake. Effectiveness You eat less and make better decisions for fear of having digestive issues. So I suppose it is effective in that you will likely lose weight. I'm just not sure how much of it is taking the pill and how it impacts you and how much of it is forcing you to make better decisions. Side Effects The risk of side effects is too great to make this very useful.

The Alli Weight Loss Aid is made with Orlistat. What Orlistat does is block your body from absorbing around 25% of the fat that you consume. However, in order to not absorb that fat, your body does something else with it - get rid of it FAST! How you might ask? Good question. Through your bowels. Alli makes you poop. And you don't poop solids. Your bowel movements will be almost oily (unabsorbed FAT looks a lot like oil) and at times, they will probably be uncontrollable. You will react like a kid who's just learned to potty train. I guess that the upside is, that if you maintain your same calorie intake, you will reduce the amount of fat consumed, and probably lose weight. But the downside is that you will have to 1) wear diapers 2) avoid white pants 3) remain within fifteen feet of a toilet at all points in time. I would avoid it. Seriously, just eat less fatty foods and maybe go for a walk. ANY weight loss method has got to be better than these poop-pills! Side Effects You will poop oil.

One of the few pills that actually work - but holy side effects!

I'm giving this a 7 because I did lose some weight. One of the unmentioned side effects that sticks with you is a aversion to anything with visible fat. After you've experienced the effects of this pill you'll still avoid fat even afterward on the off chance that you might experience them again! Effectiveness If you eat a low fat diet; this pill won't do much for you. As an american; you're probably not though. The stuff in this pill bonds to the fat you consume and helps (forces!) your body to get rid of it. This does help you lose weight (5 lbs in 2 weeks for me - no exercise or any other changes). Side Effects OK, these are horrible. Explosive greasy diarrhea that you cannot stop. I'd suggest the first time you try these pills that you do it on a weekend at home. Anything with fat comes out in a hurry. I don't know if it's the pill or the side effects scaring you into eating properly that works. But, this does work. I discontinued using this and started a regular workout regimen. Given my job, I don't always have a bathroom handy.

I had a terrible experience with these pills. I did not find them to be effective at all. My girlfriend and I both did it together and we we're miserable the entire time. I myself only last a couple of weeks. I lost two pounds and I am pretty sure it was only because I could not stay out of the bathroom. These pills are like little grease capsules. It is a hoax in my book. We both felt and got really sick while taking these. I do not even know why they continue to sell these. Side Effects Major bowel problems are associated with these. Embarrassing and explosive issues will occur. My friend and I tried to laugh about it but it really isn't funny at all. I did not lose any real weight but had headaches really bad. I think you have to stay very hydrated, over and beyond your normal hydration. I would not recommend this to anyone who has a life outside of their bathroom. Not a good product at all. Way over priced for no results.

This product is suppose to make you lose weight but I think I lost more weight from the diarrhea this stuff gave me. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone however I did lose weight and that's what it was made for I have been taking these for 2 months and I dropped 20 pounds already but I was also eating healthy and exercising I do recommend this if people want to lose weight quick I have tried other pills but none have worked this does what its suppose to but the side effects really put a damper on it. Overall it made me lose weight

I like many have struggled with my weight my entire life. After the fen fen fiasco over a decade ago I havr been apprehensive to try a medication to help me lose weight. When I heard that Alli weightloss aid was approved by the food and drug administration (fda) I determined that this would be a safe option to help me lose weight. It was very expensive compared to other weight loss pills, shakes, powders, products so I had high hopes for it being an effective product. I knew that this medication was for use with a diet and exercise program which you should be on to lose weight. The packaging information was easy to follow and understand and I felt safe that I wouldn't get sick from thia medication. I read the side effects and thwy seemed minimal. The product didnt seem to do much for me at all other than make me nauseous and have some strange bowel movements. Several of my friends had started using Alli weightloss aid pills around the same time I did and they complained of tge same symptoms some were more intense with mine - if you consumed fat it made your stool oily which was just plain gross. Even though I wasnt consuming fat the first few days on the medication I did experience oily stools which I am assuming was from the fats that I had consumed befoee taking the pills. Overall I didn't seem to lose more weight with the product than I would have with diet and exercise alone. I was very disappointed and once the pills were gone I never purchased them again nor would I. Effectiveness This product did not seem to help me lose more weight than just dieting and exercising alone. Typically the first two weeks of a diet I lose between 12-15 pounds. The first two weeks of using this product with diet and excercise I lost 13 pounds Side Effects Side effects included loose and oily stools as well as persistent nausea.

You will only lose weight while you are on it, the weight comes back as soon as you stop using it. And the side effects are not worth the 5-10 pounds you'll drop. Side Effects Absolutely disgusting. You cannot leave the house. You will experience side effects within minutes of eating while on Alli. From dinner table to bathroom.
