The Alli weight loss medication in over the counter form, is the only over the counter weight loss drug approved by the FDA. I decided to try this medication and did not like the result.
The package instructions for the Alli weight loss drug offers plenty of advice on what not to eat. The program allows the user a certain amount of daily fat depending upon the starting weight. The package insert also warns of possible "treatment" effects if fat consumptio is too high.
After researching the nature of these "treatment" effects, I was so full of fear that I did not eat one ounce of fat while taking the medication.
Alli causes very loose stools and stool leakage as well as excessive gas is the user eats too much fat after taking a capsule. Unfortunately, the medication does not build up in the system so the user simply has to choose not to take the pill before indulging.
I suffered NO "treatment" effects while taking Alli and yes, I did lose weight. Out of FEAR!
I will never use this product again. I will not be forced into fear in order to lose a few pounds.
