Studies in the last 3 months have shown that, with the use of Orlistat, you lose an approximately 0.4 lbs of weight per week. Other diet pills will allow you to lose 0.5 lbs weight per week, but it would entail a week of reduced appetite. Orlistat, a component which can be found in both Xenical and Alli diet pills, prevents the actual absorption of about 1/3 of the dietary fat consumed by the body. The only difference between Xenical and Alli would be the fact that Alli is the reduced version of the other and that has been approved by the FDA as an over-the-counter drug.When using Alli, you need to combine it with proper diet and exercise. Alli alone cannot make you lose weight. Thus, as with he reports, the weight reduction is slow but not threatening to the body. Alli is taken before every major meal. This means that you need to take Alli 3x a day.
Like other medications, Orlistat can also give side effects. Xenical and Alli have varied side effects. The most common would be loose bowels, but a majority of people can tolerate this already. As for Alli, aside from loose bowel, you will also encounter farting sessions. You can resolve this pretty easily. You only need to reduce your fat intake. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t be eating foods with fat. Of course, your diet would require you to have some fat. It is the excess fat that is being inhibited by Alli.
If you take in more fat, that is the only time you need to worry because, it will also increase the side effects. This means that you will have more sessions of loose bowels to think about.
Jehan Caliwara, a boutique manager, narrated that she used to doubt Alli’s capabilities before. She was very hesitant to take different diet pills because of the side effects it may have. She tries to struggle hard everyday to the fact that she was overweight. This really lowered her self esteem; which made her afraid to connect with other people. She seems to get intimidated easily. She tends to see things in a rather negative way. She tried seeing a shrink about it. She realized that her depressions were more on her head. She realized that she is not the only with overweight issues. When she started using Alli, because it became available over-the-counter, she tried hard to keep her hopes up. For the first few weks, nothing seemed to be going well; she wanted to stop taking the diet pill. Thus, when she found others on the net relating their experiences about the diet pills they are taking; she found out that this is just an initial thing. She continued with it, and she was glad she did. With exercise and diet tips she got from her friends online, she found herself losing weight. Although it wasn’t that much, for her it was the start.

Hence, if you don’t trust that your diet pill is working for you, it is best to change it.
