haven't tried it, i'm not a fan of supplements after having nasty withdrawl effects post-ephedra. however, there used to be a product on the market called Sequester, which was a fat blocker also - it seemed to work well, so the alli may as well.

I'm on it..and love it. It's funny to read everyone saying you "poop" your pants and not know it....if you read the old thread on here. I am on my 2nd bottle and have yet to "poop" my pants! I am down 25 pounds. Partly because of it and the rest do to exercise. If you want it to work you have to exercise and eat right! Yes the snobs on here will say why do you need it then? well the reason I need it is becasue I think it's helping me to stay on track and watch everything I eat and exercise. If it helps then I say try it! Good luck!

I agree with the last poster. I have read on a different thread that you are "lazy" if you use the stuff. That's bullshit. I exercise, eat right for the majority of the time, and unfortunately, can't lose that last 15 pounds. Today is my first day so I am very excited about what it can do for me. If you keep this thread going, I'll update anyone who is interested.

maybe since you're only eating right "for the majority of the time", you're having trouble w/ the last 15 pounds. have you tried eating right all of the time?

Get off your high horse people let other do what they want. It's not for you to say what is bad for them!!! So are you telling me all those people out there who have surgery are bad/wrong? It's up to them not you! YOU can eat healthy and not drop weight, some people have a different body than others they can have other things that are causing them not to drop weight. I find it funny all you people out here bashing others for doing Alli when you could be saying something nice to help them out maybe in a different way. You know I have known 3 people who have had surgery and look great they have lost a whole "person" in weight...people don't bash them. But IF you take a diet pill then you are this bad person! Get a clue people and try to be helpful to others and not hurtful!
Good day! And good luck to all of you who are trying your hardest to drop those unwanted pounds...if you do any or all of it........exercise alone, good, pills or all above...just be healthy!

sharing my opinions that drugs are bad and that maybe if the person tried to eat right all the time was my way of saying something nice to help the person out. i think it's destructive to the core idea of getting healthy to rely on or use drugs. i think all other methods, especially ones that the person admittedly falls short of meeting, should be fully explored first. my opinions were stated politely and you just don't agree. fine. move on to someone elses' opinion instead of insulting mine. you don't have to take advice from everyone who offers it.

I think it's very difficult, VERY difficult, for 99% of people to eat right all the time. I haven't met someone who does, and I have thin friends and fat friends alike. So I think anything that can give people some extra motivation or help in staying on track as much as possible seems great. For some people, a pill might help. For some people, a pill that will make you poop your pants if you eat too much fat might help :) Who knows what will work for each person, but I admire everyone who is trying something and adapting. In general, telling people they have to be perfect about their diet is not a positive or nice comment. The most important thing is to remmeber that everyone is making great strides by being here and being thoughtful about their bodies and health, and when mistakes happen - don't beat yourself up, just get back on track as soon as possible. Good luck everyone.

and a lot easier than eating right. i firmly believe that taking pills is not sustainable or meant for long term usage. if a person starts developing a healthy, realistic attitude about how to eat properly and exercise and utilize calories ingested, the person will see results. thin people and heavy people alike will benefit healthwise. these drugs that are on the market may cause genetic damage or have long term side effects that are as yet unknown. after taking prescriptions and experienceing everything from hair loss to diminished vision in one eye to tremendous weight gain due to side effects that were classified on the accompanying pamphlets as "uncommon", i try to get the word out and urge people to do a lot of research on their own before just taking the new, popular pill being touted as safe by the fda.

Use as recommended for best results!

You will not see complete complete success if you only take the pill when it’s convenient or when you can shit yourself private!!! :S

You need to seriously adjust the way you eat. This way the pill can be taken, as recommended, 3 times a day.
Oil may still appear in your stool but with a meal under 15 grams of fat, you SHOULD NOT have uncontrollable diarrhea!
If you are shitting your pants after every need to think long and hard about what you are putting in your mouth!

I've been on Alli for about 30 days now and haven't experienced a single embarrassing accident! I've lost 2 lbs and have been eating better and exercising 3 days a week.

Good luck to all out there trying this and please keep my advice in mind.
If you are concerned about diarrhea after a fatty meal – don’t avoid the pill, avoid the fatty meal!!!
