Alli Weight Loss Aid
Disadvantages: You'll be on the toilet alot if you're not careful
I got Alli from my local sainsburys in october 2010 after reading up about it and seeing good reviews and results.
I was 10 stone and a half and at 5'2 felt very uncomfortable. Although i'd bein trying for ages to lose a stone or two, nothing was working (so it seemed) except for calorie counting which i didn't have the motivation to do as at the time i was working 12 hour days, so i picked these up.
They were £34.99 for 30 tablets which yes, was expensive, but personally i feel they're worth it. Alli is also available on prescription for people who are classed as obese.
Alli also reduces blood pressure, and appears to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Instructions are included with your Alli tablets which are important to read. You will need to eat food low in fat for a week before you start the pills or the side effects won't be pretty!
The basic guidelines in the instruction manual is to eat food low in fat and reduce your calories, exercise regulary and start to see results.
I went from 10 stone 9 pounds to 8 stone 4 pounds in 3 months on these pills aswell as eating 1600 calories a day and exercising for 25mins minimum. I'm toned, confident and happier than back when i was overweight and these pills have definetly helped. The fact if you 'cheat' on your diet and eat some cake, you'll be on the toilet for half an hour certianly helps you decide if you should eat it or not!
I never had the oily poo or anything but noticed they were softer, i know it sounds gross but at the end of the day if you eat alot of fat while you're on these the fat and oil will just pour out and it won't be pleasent, i've also read about people having accidents in public because of loss of control! This did put me off at first but i had no problems like that.
The pills are chemical based (not herbal).
Personally they were my savouir and i wouldn't of had the motivation without them!
Summary: I lost over 2 stone
