  • i haven't but i think you should consider the side effects very carfully before deciding. the alli pill inhibits fat absorption....do you know what happens if you eat fat that is not absorbed??

  • Oh yeah I know all the side effects but side effects always effect people differently so I don't like to judge it until I have tried it!

  • I was going to take Alli, however when I read the side effects they sounds just like my son disease he has Cystic Fibrosis, and I told my husband that I thought it was weird that people are taking pills to have what our son is cursed with. However, if you can stand the side effects I know it will make you loose weight because we have a hard time putting weight on our son.

  • The best way is to stay active. Exercise and munch on healthy foods when you are hungry. Be determined to stay to your list of healthy foods. Maybe have a light lunch nd drink lots of water. Drink warm teas with meals

  • I am talking it now. I have been on it for 2 weeks and no side effects on me at all. I am kinda disappointed coz I thought it would cleanse me but nothing. I'll try to finish this supply and see how it goes.
