Before and after pictures

A Mum from America used Alli slimming pills as a quick and healthy way to help her lose weight.

Connie Degiorgis was fat, overweight and unhappy about the way she looked. Being a busy Mum, juggling work and the kids is difficult and didn't give her time to cook meals and prepare food.

Connie weighed 13.4st and was a dress size 18. By taking Alli for 6 months she went down to a dress size 8 and lost 4st of weight. She was back to her old self again and felt on top of the world.

How does Alli work?

The main ingredient in Alli is orlistat which has been available as a prescription drug for obesity since 1999 under the name Xenical, which is double the dosage of Alli (120mg vs 60mg)

This drug Orlistat works by blocking the obsorbtion of fat into the body - around 1/4 of the total fat in your diet. It attaches itself to the natural enzymes in the digestive system, preventing them from breaking down the fat. Undigested fat can not be absorbed so it passes through the body naturally. Alli's adverts say that if you for every 2lbs of weight you would lose normally with All you would lose an extra 1lb.

Alli Side effects

Alli causes the body to have a physical reaction by blocking some of the fat in your diet. This blocked fat has to go somewhere, it passes through the body when you have bowel movements, this has make your stools quite oily. This effect is more noticeable with people eating a high-fat diet.

It also blocks some of the vitamins in your food. You are advised to take a good multivitamin everyday when using Alli.

Is Alli effective?

Yes. There is no doubt that Alli works. Take a look at this paragraph taken from the NHS website:

"The only medicines in the UK specifically licensed for the treatment of obesity are called orlistat (Alli) and sibutramine. Orlistat works by reducing the absorption of the fat you eat. Sibutramine increases the feeling of fullness when you eat by boosting levels of the chemical, serotonin, which is naturally made in your body.

Both these drugs have been clinically proven to help people lose weight."

Orlistat is the medical name for Alli and Xenical.

Alli review conclusion

Alli is exactly the same as Xenical which is clinically proven to work and is why Doctors have been prescribing it for years. It's very effective, reasonably priced, readily available and only has a few milf side-effects.

We really like Alli and would recomend it to anyone who has a BMI of 28 or over and needs that little bit of help to lose weight. By taking Alli and following their eating plan you will soon feel much happier and healthier.

Alli worked for me, 6 months ago I weighed 13st and now I weigh 10.5st, I'm back to my normal size and my lift has completely changed.

I don't know if it was the pills completely or that they actually make you change the way you eat. Now I never eat any fried or really fatty foods and I always go easy on the carbs.

If it wasn't for alli slimming pills forcing me to do this, I don't know if I would of done it.

Alli is working really well for me. After visiting my Doctor 3 months ago he suggest that I make simple changes to my diet and take Alli slimming pills. The prescription version is called orlistat, my BMI wasn't high enough to qualify for this so he recommend Alli instead.

It's been 3 months now and I've lost over 1 stone in weight. I haven't experienced any of the side effects people talk about but I have cut out really high fat meals out of my diet.

I'm pleased with my results and I've been recommending it to my friends.

I've just finished using Alli slimming pills for 2 months and they have worked as well as the Doctor said they would. But, I didn't like cutting fat out of my diet, low fat foods just don't taste as good and don't give me as much energy.

From now on i'm going to try and eat a balanced diet and hit the gym.

I have a bit of a problem with junk food, I love pizzas and chips and ready meals. Cutting them out completely was not an option for me.

I saw an Alli advert and decided to give them a go. They're really good, I still eat the same kind of diet and I am losing weight. It's perfect.

I used alli slimming pills for 4 months last year and lost nearly 2 stone. I've managed to keep most of the weight off. They worked well for me, I would recommend them.

Alli slimming pills are working really well for me. I bought 3 boxes last month after feeling depressed about my weight, I was also desperate to get rid of it for my holiday. I've gone from 13.5st to 12.7st in about 5 weeks. Yes!!

Alli has worked very well for me. I first started on it over a year ago and lost about 10lbs. I'm now back on it because i've gained 5lbs, this time i'm looking to lose about a stone in total.

I highly recommend if you want to see weight loss results without the ups and downs.

On the TV adverts they didn't say anything about side-effects, the last 2 days i've had to totally change my diet and cut out the takeaways.

The slimming pill is working but I don't know if I can continue with it.
Terry, Sat Jun 26, 2010
My cousin told me about alli slimming pills, she said she has lost nearly 2st a few months, I couldn't believe it, I just had to try it for myself.

So I ordered the 2 months 84 pack and now after 2 months i've lost over 1st. I can't stop looking in the mirror. This the best feeling i've had in years.
