Alli or Orlistat?

Has anyone tried Orlistat? It's now sold over the counter with a whole diet "plan" called Alli. Any thoughts?

Go online and read about it. I wasn't that impressed after reading the materials, particularly considering the miniscule results for the disgusting side effects. In particular, the studies the article I read stated that people lost 5 to 10 pounds over six months. The kind of diet changes necessary to avoid dire symptoms should produce greater weight loss alone. But that's just my opinion. Go read up on the drug.

Hmmm... No one else has heard of this or tried it? I to have done a lot of research on both sides of this drug and I'm on the fence. Just wondering if anyone had tried it.

Take them both. Please have an overdose. Stop spamming the PT community.

I highly recommend a drug called broccoli and another one called stop eating so much freaking ice cream.

Wow... thanks for the positive attitude. What a bunch of rude people some of you are. I'm not a spammer, just an over weight woman working towards my weight goals. If you people don't have anything nice to say, keep your nasty comments to yourself! Good lord, go eat a friggen donut if you're such a miserable crab!

or take the easy way out and pop some pillls that have as-yet-unknown long-term effects....

why are you considering taking pills to lose weight? this route will not increase the level of health associated with eating healthy foods in healthy portions and exercising regularly. and the side effects associated with a balanced food plan combined with exercise are fantastic: better sleep, more alert, more energy, weight loss/maintainance, toned body, less muscular wear-and-tear, and more! no fda approval necessary and available without prescription. suitable for use by the young and old.

12:53- sounds like you are fond of taking shortcuts in life since you are looking at pills. That might be the real problem- lack of discipline.

You know i came to this site for some support, not to be lashed for my ideas. You have NO idea what I have or haven't done to lose weight. Take your "support" web site and shove it up all of your pompus asses. I'm glad you are all so much better than I am. I'm sure you're all a bunch of little bitches that only have those "five problem" pounds to lose. Good luck to you.

actually, i have about 70 pounds to lose. but when i lose it, i want it to stay gone! this is proven to be possible by following a portion-controlled eating plan and exercising regularly. pills are not an answer to anything!! why not share your story and seek long term solutions instead of jumping on the newest diet pill to hit the market? i think if everyone boycotted both of these products maybe the industry would get a hint that just because we are fat, we aren't willing to resort to short-cuts to become healthier. you want to know something funny? pills are what put 50 pounds on my body within a year. yeah, medication, pills!
