Alli Diet Pill Review

Alli is quite possibly the most discussed, most debated and most advertised diet pill there has ever been.

It has an unrivaled status of being the only FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) approved diet pill that is available to buy over the counter without doctor prescription.

Alli is produced by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline and is a lower strength version of the prescription only diet drug Xenical and includes the active ingredient Orlistat.

How Does Alli Work

The active ingredient (Orlistat) blocks a percentage of fat (around 27%) from being digested and absorbed by your stomach from each and every meal.

This undigested fat can then pass naturally through your body and leave via bowel movements.

Clinical research estimates that for every 2lbs you lose from your own weight loss efforts Alli can help you lose an additional 1lb, effectively increasing your results by 50%.

Quite simply Alli does what it says on the box and the United States Government (FDA) Agrees. It is arguably the diet pill to eclipse all others.

Alli Side Effects

Alli has many positives but one side effect that seemed to tarnish its reputation after its launch.

After its successful introduction into the United States in the fall of 2007 many dieters complained of a side effect that has been since coined the Alli Oops.

The active ingredient in Alli (Orlistat) blocks fat from being digested. Undigested fat is orange in appearance and rather gooey. This orange goo can leave your body at a moments notice and sometimes without warning, best described as anal leakage. An inconvenience rather than a side effect – better described as a treatment effect.

The criticism Alli received over this was rather harsh and a contradiction, if you possess a modicum of intelligence you will realize that it is better to expel excess body fat (albeit in rather unpleasant fashion) than carry it round beneath your clothes.

Three to six months of inconvenience is a small price to pay for getting your body back into shape.

Is Alli Recommended

If it were not for the issues surrounding anal leakage and the fact that Alli is not available to buy over the counter in Canadian pharmacies it would be higher rated.

Alli Buying Restrictions

Buying Alli is not entirely straight forward – although it is classed as non prescription diet pill you will have to complete a form (either in-store when available or online)

The form identifies if you are suitable candidate, Alli is best used by people who have a high Body Mass Index (typically 28 or above)

Alli is also not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 or pregnant or nursing mothers.

Where To By Alli In Canada

As yet Alli cannot be purchased over the counter in Canada – but is available for Canadians to buy online via selected authorized web based stockists.

Perhaps the most convenient way for Canadian customers to purchase is via UK authorized and registered stockist Chemist Direct – This route has been ceased.

Alternatives To Alli

Proactol XSProactol XS shares the same methodology as Alli – it binds dietary fat

You are less likely to experience the anal leakage issue with Proactol as bowel movements are more solid.

Proactol is also non prescription and available to buy without restriction.

Proactol has been available for several years and remains the closest rival to the GlaxoSmithKline product. In our opinion there is clear daylight between Proactol XS and Alli
