Alli - anyone try it?
Posted 13 June 2008 - 09:56 AM
I decided that on monday I'm starting the sacred heart diet because a big loss is what I need to remotivate myself. Lately I've been so stuck on back and forth between the same few pounds that I can't stay motivated, so if I do the sacred heart thing for a week or two I think that will get me remotivated.
at least I hope so...

I have bought the Alli but haven't started it. My BM and I were going together. But now I'm scared. I'm in outside sales and that is not something I want to have happen to me on a call. Bad news.

Anyway..I can tell you I took it for about 4 weeks straight and had no problems with it. None.
The key is to make sure you don't eat more than 15 grams of fat per meal.
From what I've read, your boss probably had a little too much fat to eat and as a result had a "treatment effect". THAT'S WHAT ALLI CALLS THEM!
I was so terrified of having a "treatment effect" I made 100% sure I didn't eat more than the fat alloted.
So, use it! U will lose it... cuz you'll eat so healthy from fear of pooping in your pants.

Jamy-sadly I know diet and exercise works, but it is so hard.

Orlistat (marketed under the trade name Xenical by Roche; or over-the-counter as alli by GlaxoSmithKline (pronounced like the English word "ally")â€”also known as tetrahydrolipstatinâ€”is a drug designed to treat obesity. Its primary function is preventing the absorption of fats from the human diet, thereby reducing caloric intake. It is intended for use in conjunction with a physician-supervised reduced-calorie diet.
Orlistat is the saturated derivative of lipstatinâ€”a potent natural inhibitor of pancreatic lipases isolated from the bacterium Streptomyces toxytricini. However, due to simplicity and stability, orlistat rather than lipstatin was developed into an anti-obesity drug.
Orlistat works by inhibiting pancreatic lipase, an enzyme that breaks down triglycerides in the intestine. Without this enzyme, triglycerides from the diet are prevented from being hydrolyzed into absorbable free fatty acids and are excreted undigested. Only trace amounts of orlistat are absorbed systemically; the primary effect is local lipase inhibition within the GI tract after an oral dose. The primary route of elimination is through the feces.
At the standard prescription dose of 120 mg three times daily before meals, orlistat prevents approximately 30% of dietary fat from being absorbed, and about 25% at the standard over-the-counter dose of 60 mg. Higher doses do not produce more potent effects.
The reason why you poop so much is b/c it contains that Orilstat which is like that ingredient they were putting in those chips remember? The ones that gave people bad cramps and made them run to the bathroom. So that is why so many people have leakage. If you eat healthy anyway you will lose weight. But the reason why this is always raved about is b/c even though your only eating 15 grams of fat, half of those grams are being blocked by the alli pill. So its really like you only ate half of that. So even if you didn't take Alli and ate healthy, you still wouldn't be getting the benefit of half the calories. That's what makes it so "great".
