alli is the only FDA approved, over-the-counter weight loss product. But that's only part of what's different about alli.
First, alli is not a miracle pill or a quick fix. Lots of other weight loss products promise results overnight. But alli is based on good things like hard work, smart choices and gradual weight loss.
Second, alli is a unique combination of a pill and a plan to help you lose even more weight than dieting alone. If you could lose 10 pounds through dieting alone, you could lose 15 with alli.
alli only works if you work. Individual results may vary. alli is not for everyone, and it's only for you if you can commit to eating more sensibly and getting more physically active. alli puts the focus on the most important element of success in weight loss: YOU. You are the active ingredient.
How does it work?
The alli capsule works by preventing your body from absorbing some of the fat you eat. When you take the capsule with meals, alli prevents the enzymes in your intestines from digesting about one-fourth of the fat in your foods. Undigested fat can't be absorbed and passes through your body naturally. Which means your body can't store it as fat.
What's the plan?
Everyone knows losing weight is easier with support. That's why the alli program includes myalliplan, an individually tailored online action plan developed by clinical experts who understand the challenge of losing weight. myalliplan was specifically developed for use with alli capsules.
Here's how the plan works: When you purchase alli and register online with myalliplan.com, you'll receive a customized action plan, based on confidential answers you provide in a brief survey. As you check in, you'll get immediate feedback on your progress, plus specific guidance on next steps. You can also access recipes, menus, and interactive tools. This innovative support program is available online 24 hours a day.
Does alli have side effects?
In many cases, that's up to you. alli works by preventing the absorption of some of the fat you eat. The fat passes out of your body, so you may have bowel changes, known as treatment effects.
You may have:
Gas with oily spotting
More frequent stools that may be hard to control
Eating a low-fat diet lowers the chance of these bowel changes, especially if you limit your fat to 15 grams per meal. While no one wants to experience treatment effects, you may think of them as a way to become more aware of what you eat. Minimizing treatment effects can be an incentive to keep from eating too much fat.
Managing Treatment Effects
Even before you begin taking alli capsules, try following a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet so you can get used to making smarter food choices. Then choose a day to start with alli capsules such as a weekend day so you can stay close to home if you experience a treatment effect.
