Has anyone tried Alli before?

I think that is how you spell it.

  • yes i did..what are you wanting to know...yes it does work and block all the fats that are in the food you eat..but it should come with a warning label that clearly reads...after some time of using this product if you pass gas you will leave nasty greasy stains in your clothes, sometimes you will have uncontrolable bowl may have stomach cramping, you could have sepage in your sleep and wake up does work and i used it for months before this happened to me i did get so embarrassed out shopping one day and lets just say i bought new clothes!

  • Diets and diet aids (if they even work) are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals.
