Alli weight loss tablets
alli is exciting news for adults who are overweight with a BMI of 28 or over, want to lose weight and who understand the importance of sensible eating when they’re trying to lose weight. If you know what it’s like to step on the scales and not lose as much weight as you were expecting, alli could be just what you need.
alli is not a magic slimming pill. It's a weight loss capsule designed to be used with a support programme to help boost your weight loss. It’s clinically proven that adding alli to a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet can boost your weight loss by 50%.
It works by stopping some of the fat you eat from being absorbed, so for every 2 lb (1 kg) you lose from eating healthily, adding alli can help you lose 1 lb (1/2 kg) more.
alli is the first pharmacy-only weight loss aid licensed throughout Europe.
Due to the way the alli capsules work, it’s important to eat a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. You may do so already, in which case you’ll probably only need to make some minor adjustments – check your daily fat and calorie targets for more details.

how does alli work?
If you want to lose weight, it’s important to understand how body fat accumulates in the first place. When you eat more calories than your body needs, your body will store the extra ones as body fat, making you put on weight. alli is an effective answer to help you lose the weight sensibly, and the alli programme gives you lots of help at every stage.

alli works in a unique way. The active ingredient, orlistat, attaches itself to some of the body’s enzymes that break down fat. This prevents some of the fat you eat from being digested and absorbed
Fat is high in calories but if it isn't absorbed, it can't contribute to weight gain. The unabsorbed fat passes naturally out of your body in your stools.
Unlike stimulants or appetite suppressants, alli is formulated to work only in your digestive system and should not affect your heart rate, your brain or cause sleeplessness.
To make the most of the way alli works and to help you achieve your weight loss goals, you’ll need to follow a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet and become more active.
How to take alli
Take one capsule, three times a day at mealtimes – before, during or up to one hour after each meal.
Swallow the capsule whole with water and do not take more than three a day.
alli works on the fat in your meals, so if you miss a meal or the meal doesn’t contain fat, don’t take a capsule.
You should also take a multivitamin every day at bedtime to ensure adequate absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K.
Diet-related treatment effects
You’re in control
what are diet-related treatment effects?
alli works in a unique way by preventing some of your body’s enzymes from digesting about a quarter of the fat you eat. As undigested fat can’t be absorbed, it passes naturally out of the body in your stools. Each alli capsule works on one meal at a time.
As a result of this mode of action, you may notice changes to your bowel movements. If you stick to your fat targets (follow the alli programme’s healthy, reduced calorie, lower-fat diet) these should be manageable. However, if you eat too much fat, you increase your chances of diet-related treatment effects, including wind (flatulence), with or without oily spotting; sudden bowel motions; fatty or oily stools; loose stools.
Diet-related treatment effects
Most users only have one episode of diet-related treatment effects. Also, it’s important to remember that these diet-related treatment effects are largely due to what you eat. If you stick to the recommended fat levels per meal, you’re less likely to have any problems.
For example, it you eat a chicken breast meal containing 15g of fat and then take alli, about a quarter of the fat (4g) is undigested and passes out of your body (less chance of diet-related treatment effects).
On the other hand, if you take alli with a fatty meal, such as a burger and chips containing 80g of fat, about 20g of fat passes out of your body (and you are more likely to experience diet-related treatment effects).
The surplus fat that passes naturally out of your body is simply undigested fat resulting from how alli works. If you get a diet-related treatment effect, see it as a signal that you’ve eaten a meal or snack that may have contained more than your recommended fat target.
Tips to avoid diet-related treatment effects
Find out more about how much fat a portion of your favourite food typically contains. By getting used to the recommended portions, you’ll be less likely to accidentally go over your fat target.
Distribute your fat allowance evenly across your meals for the day. Don’t "save" fat grams from lunch and "spend" them at dinner - each meal and snack must be within your fat target – check your fat and calorie targets for more details.
Be patient. It may take a little time to familiarise yourself with your targets. Most users who experience diet-related treatment effects at the start, learn how to reduce them.
