    I talked to my doctor about it this morning and she gave it two thumbs up!!

    I am such a ding dong though I was at Target and planned on buying it. Well they are having a 50% summer sale and I was too busy buying paper cups, plates, ice cooler, etc and I left. I totally forgot about the Alli. Duh!

        Ok here's my issue. I'm a "on the go" kind of girl. I just don't have the time to be cooking and preparing meals to the T. How in the heck am I supposed to know if there is a 15 gram serving of fat in something? Aside from the obv of looking at the nutrition label what do I do if I'm ordering a grilled chicken salad? Or a sandwhich?

          Sounds like on this stuff you would find out if you ate too many grams of fat when you shit yourself. Yikes!

            Yeah that would be my worry too. Plus I'm on the go a lot, and what if a "treatment effect" happened in my car or while I'm out with clients? I don't even want to think about it.

              also -- i spent some time on some of the websites of restaurant chains near where i work looking at the nutrition facts so i know what i can or cant eat. i keep the list at my desk at work so when i run out for lunch i know what i should order. when in doubt, order a salad with dressing on the side, no cheese. if you like stuff like chipotle - you cannot have guac, that will push you over 15 grams alone because of the high fat content of avocados, even if it is "healthy fat" - remember alli does not distinguish between healthy & unhealthy fats

                I'm always on the go too. So I end up eating Subway...tons of subway and I can have a 6 in grilled chix sub, baked lays and a lemonade for under 10 grams of fat. It gets old, but it works and most importantly NO TREATMENT EFFECTS!!!
