Alli weight loss

Xenical weight loss

Alli is a 60-milligram over-the-counter version of orlistat (Xenical). Both Alli and Xenical should be used_ in conjunction with a low-calorie, low-fat diet and regular physical activity as part of a weight-loss strategy.

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of Alli in people 18 years of age and older with a BMI of 25 or more.

 Adults with a BMI of 30 or more are eligible to take Xenical. Xenical is also recommended- for people with a BMI of 27-30 (obesity) and health risks such as high blood pressure or diabetes.


You can lose about 1 to 2 pounds a week. For every 2 pounds- you lose from diet alone, Alli can help you lose 1 pound more. 

In clinical studies_ most people lost 5-10 pounds over six (6) months. Individual results may vary.

Alli is an approved Over Counter Weight Loss Medication.

How does Alli work?

Orlistat (the main ingredient of Alli) helps you lose weight by reducing the amount_ of fat you consume in your intestines.

Lipase, a digestive enzyme, helps break down edible fats into small pieces that can be consumed or stored for energy. Lipase is inhibited- by orlistat. About 25% of the fat you eat is not down when you take the drug with food. Fat is excreted- in the intestine.

How Much Weight Can I Lose Using Alli?

Alli can help you lose weight. But the weight loss will most likely be small_. It could be, for example, a few pounds more than you lose with diet and exercise.

According to research, more than 40% of people taking Allie to lose 5% or more of their body weight in a year during a calorie-restricted diet and increased physical activity. 

Clinically significant weight loss, defined as a weight loss of 5% or more, indicates that the weight loss is sufficient to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases.

People who followed a calorie-restricted diet exercised frequently and consumed Allie lost 2.6 pounds more per year than those who dieted and exercised.
