your part and our part
alli is a 60mg orlistat capsule. But, it’s more than just a pill. It’s an innovative weight loss program that works with you, not for you. Alli can help you lose 50% more weight than dieting alone, but you have to do your part by changing the way you eat.
lose more weight with alli
The alli program starts with your commitment to adopting healthy eating habits. It combines the only over-the-counter, FDA-approved weight loss aid with an individually tailored support plan, to help achieve gradual and healthy weight loss. When you take alli along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, you can lose about 50% more weight than dieting alone. For example, instead of losing 10 pounds with diet alone, you can lose 15 pounds with the alli program.
alli is safe—it works in your digestive system, not in your heart or brain. It will not cause jitters, sleeplessness, or a racing heart. You can’t just try alli—you have to commit to it.

alli blocks 25% of the fat you eat
Typically, enzymes in your intestines break down fat from food so your body can absorb the fat. But, the active ingredient in alli attaches to some of these enzymes and prevents them from digesting about a quarter of the fat you eat. Because undigested fat can't be absorbed, it passes out of your body naturally.
does alli have side effects?
The main side effect occurs when you eat a meal with too much fat while taking alli. If so much fat is blocked that your stool can’t absorb it, you might have side effects. Because they are not harmful, we call them “treatment effects”. They include loose or more frequent stools, an urgent need to go to the bathroom, or gas with an oily discharge. The excess fat that passes out of your body is in no way harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza. Treatment effects can be lessened if you stick to reduced-calorie, low-fat meals that average 15 grams of fat per meal.
