What is ALLI?
ALLI is the only FDA approved, over-the-counter weight loss product. The ALLI program includes ALLI capsules and my ALLIplan, an individually tailored, online action plan to help you lose weight gradually.
What makes ALLI different? FDA approval and a sensible approach that focuses on your long-term success.
ALLI isn’t just another product for you to buy. ALLI is a pill with a plan. This program requires a commitment to living your life in a new way as you learn to change your eating and activity habits.
ALLI is not for everyone, but ALLI is an option. If you are ready to take responsibility, ALLI and your hard work can help increase your weight loss by 50%. That means if you could lose 10 pounds with dieting alone, you could lose 15 pounds working with ALLI.

Change is challenging
What’s so hard about taking a pill and following a plan? If you’ve ever tried to lose weight before, you know the hurdles. We’ve all heard the same thing for years: Eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise are the starting points for any weight loss program.
In theory, that makes sense. In reality, it’s hard to do. Lots of people start a diet on Monday and get off track by lunch. They set a goal to only eat 600 calories a day and plan to spend five days at the gym. But nobody can maintain that kind of regimen. And who wants to live like that? With ALLI, you have an option based on gradual and healthy progress.
How ALLI capsules work
First, let’s talk about the capsule. ALLI prevents your body from absorbing about a quarter of the fat you eat. Fat is more calorie-dense than carbs or protein. Just one gram of fat has more than double the calories of the same amount of protein or carbs. So if you eat a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet and use ALLI capsules, you can make a real difference in your weight as you limit the total number of calories that enter your system.
Using reference guides available in the ALLI starter pack and support online, you’ll learn how to plan meals that limit your fat intake, track your progress using ALLI weight loss resources, and get more physically active.

Side effects :
The potentially uncomfortable, but not serious side effects which may occur with Alli have been well documented. They relate specifically to the drugs ability to supress the absorption of fatty acids into the body, and the disposal of unused dietary elements. Some users may experience some of the following side effects :- Oily stools. As the Alli weight loss pill reduces the production of an enzyme in the intestine, which converts fatty dietary elements into fatty acids, some fat from digested food may not be processed. As a result the body will find a way to release basic fat content from the body, usually excreted naturally. Due to the nature of the left over substances, stools can often appear oily and emit an unfortunate odour. Flatulence. Another means by which the body has been known to release unwanted waste is by flatulence. While this is a totally natural and harmless release, it can prove potentially embarrassing and uncomfortable as the customer may not have full control of their bowels at all times. Vitamin deficiency. Even though Alli is specifically structured to take out the fatty content of dietary intake, some vitamins may consist of fatty content, which may not be absorbed into the body. It is therefore recommended that while using taking Alli, the user also takes a daily dose of vitamin tablets. While the oily stools and flatulence are slightly unfortunate side effects, they can be controlled by reducing the dietary fat content to somewhere in the region of 15 grams per meal.
