I know I've mentioned this before on my blog but I thought I would go ahead and do it again.
The new FDA approved weight loss drug is scheduled to be available mid June. It's called Alli (funny that its a girl's name). Alli promises 50% more weight loss than with regular dieting alone. It gives and example that if you lose 10lbs by dieting alone you can lose 15lbs by dieting AND taking Alli. Sounds great right?!?!?!....Tell me what you think.
I've always had a hard time taking weight loss pills. I dont like taking pills in general. It's fairly expensive; $65 for 90 pills. The side effects don't sound dangerous but unpleasant. The pill works by blocking 25% of the fat your body tries to absorb in the food you eat. If you eat a lot of fatty foods your body wont be able to digest them. Here is what Alli says:
The main side effect occurs when you eat a meal with too much fat while taking alli. If so much fat is blocked that your stool can’t absorb it, you might have side effects. Because they are not harmful, we call them “treatment effects”. They include loose or more frequent stools, an urgent need to go to the bathroom, or gas with an oily discharge.
That doesnt sound like fun!!!
So, would you try it???
