The most studied weight loss medicine:
Orlistat, the active ingredient in alli, is the most studied weight loss medicine in the world, with more than 100 clinical studies, involving more than 30,000 patients. Unlike stimulants or appetite suppressants, alli is formulated to work only in your digestive system and should not affect your heart rate, liver, brain or cause sleeplessness.
is alli safe?
alli is the only FDA-approved over-the-counter weight loss aid. Since alli was made available over-the-counter in 2007, more than 10 million people worldwide have used the product. With more than 100 clinical studies involving 30,000 patients, orlistat is the most extensively studied weight loss drug in the world and continues to be a safe and effective product when used as directed to help people lose weight. More than 40 million people have used orlistat since it first became available in 1998.
how does alli work?
alli works by inhibiting some of the body’s absorption of dietary fat. Taken at meal times, it works by blocking the absorption of about 25% of fat in the foods you eat. Because of the way it works, alli must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet containing about 15 grams of fat per meal. Eating a meal with too much fat while taking alli can result in bowel changes, such as loose stools, more frequent stools that may be hard to control, or gas with oily spotting. These changes, called treatment effects, may occur in the first weeks of treatment, are not harmful and can generally be managed by following a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet that does not exceed 15 grams of fat per meal.
alli works in the gut; it is nonsystemically acting, which means it does not affect the central nervous system (CNS) and has no effect on the heart or the brain. Some weight-loss drugs and supplements that are systemically absorbed can be associated with CNS side effects (e.g., seizure, stroke and anxiety) or systemic side effects (e.g., heart palpitations, elevated blood pressure and heart problems). alli, a nonsystemic weight-loss aid, is not associated with these side effects, and its safety and efficacy are well established.
who can take alli?
alli can be taken by overweight individuals age 18 or older who are ready to make the change to a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet. But, as with all medicines, there are some people who should not take alli or who need to check with their doctor first, so it is important to review the label before purchasing alli.
alli has been studied in ethnically diverse populations and has been proven safe and effective for all populations regardless of gender, race and initial weight. Data shows that alli plus diet is always significantly better than diet alone.
how effective is alli?
alli works by blocking the absorption of about 25% of fat in the foods you eat, leading to a 5% to 10% weight loss over time. alli met the rigorous FDA standards for a weight-loss aid. Clinical trials with alli have consistently shown it to be more effective than diet alone. alli can help people lose 50% more weight than with dieting alone. This means that if you could lose 10 pounds with a diet, you could lose 15 pounds working with alli.
how does the alli program work?
alli™ is the only FDA-approved, over-the-counter weight-loss aid. But it’s more than just a pill. It’s an innovative weight-loss program.
The pill works by preventing your body from absorbing some of the fat you eat. The active ingredient in alli attaches to some of the natural enzymes in the digestive system and prevents absorption of about a quarter of the fat you eat. Undigested fat cannot be absorbed and passes through the body naturally. Because alli works only in your digestive tract, it will not affect your heart or brain so you will not experience any racing heart or jitteriness.
Along with the capsule, the alli program supplies you with a wealth of education, advice and support.
how much weight can I expect to lose?
That depends on how closely you follow a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, get regular physical activity and take alli capsules as directed. alli promotes gradual, modest weight loss of about 1 to 2 pounds a week. If you could lose 10 pounds through dieting, you could lose 15 with alli. Results for each individual may vary.
how long can I take alli?
The alli label does not limit the amount of time you can take alli. You can take it until you achieve the success you want with weight loss. Most weight loss occurs within the first 6 months of using alli.
If you stop taking alli capsules, continue with your diet and exercise program to help maintain your weight. If you start to regain weight after you stop taking the capsules, you may need to start taking them again along with a diet and exercise program.
is Xenical™ the same as alli?
Xenical™ and alli contain the same active ingredient (Orlistat), but they are not the same. The products have different indications and dosages. Xenical, manufactured by Roche, is prescription Orlistat, a 120 mg capsule indicated for the treatment of obesity in patients who require the supervision of a physician.
alli is 60 mg Orlistat, an over-the-counter weight-loss aid for overweight adults who follow a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet. As an FDA-approved OTC aid, alli puts the consumer in control by offering a proven OTC weight-loss aid with comprehensive support.
how soon after taking alli capsules should I expect to see results?
If you follow a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, get regular physical activity and take alli capsules as directed, you should see results in the first two weeks. Most weight loss usually occurs within the first six months. If you stop using alli, continue with a diet and exercise program for help with weight loss. You may start to regain weight after you stop taking alli. In order to maintain your weight loss, you may need to continue taking alli along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet.
what can I eat on the alli program?
When you partner with the alli program, you’ll be able to eat meals that are both healthy and delicious. With the help of our healthy eating guide and interactive meal planner, you’ll find yourself indulging in flavorful meals and snacks every day of the week. And that’s important, because part of your success depends on how well you follow a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet while taking alli capsules as directed.
The alli program is not about starvation or deprivation; so while it’s important to limit choices that are high in fat and/or calories, you will find that you can still enjoy many of your favorite foods in moderatio
The mealtime dosing schedule (one hour before, during, or one hour after a meal) makes it easy to remember alli capsules. To help you remember, we recommend making alli a part of your pre-meal routine. Once alli and the routine have been paired several times, the association will become automatic. However, if a dose is missed, alli can be taken up to one hour after a meal and still be effective. The alli Shuttle carrying case is provided with the alli starter pack to enhance compliance and serve as a helpful reminder to take alli capsules with your meals.
