Has anyone tried the Alli weight loss pills? Don't read if grossed out easily. adult content

My friend is a nurse and she told me that is the only over the counter one you should use. That the others are full of preservatives. She also said that you basically poop out your fat. Sorry gross I know!! But I have heard that it's really nasty and oozes out and you have to wear like a pad cuz it can seep out. Is that true? Anyone actually know? I would try it if that doesn't happen.

  • It depends on how many pills you take per day and how much fat you consume. If you are eating fried foods or food with any significant amount of fat and taking the pill up to 3 times a day then you will definitely have a problem. But, if you take it the way I was... low calorie, low-fat breakfast, lunch and snacks without the pill (no need since there wasn't much fat to get rid of) then 1 pill at dinner time, you will not have a problem at all. If you do take it with every meal (up to 3 pills per day) then just make sure what your eating isn't full of fat and grease. Alli is meant to "help along" a good diet, you won't get anywhere eating a ton of calories per day even with Alli.

  • I havent' tried it, but that's my understanding of how it works... it blocks the absorption of a portion of the fat in foods in the intestines, so all that excess fat has got to go someplace and there's only one way out!

  • I heard it oozes out like oil. I'd like to try it, but I'm scared. And I work, so I guess not.

  • well if ur a SAHM it probably wouldn't be that big of a deal, just wear something lol I dance so I'm scared to do it ( I have it in my cupboard lol) all that movement might make me "leak" everywhere

  • I am a SAHM so that's why I'm wondering if I should do it. It is nasty but I hardly go anywhere anyways. lol
