I put myself on a diet mid December and have been working out regularly since, but have not noticed much weight loss (only like 1-2 pounds since I started).

Someone recommended Alli to me, should I try it?

All it does is block some of the fat in your diet. I was eating a very low fat diet and taking Alli and it didn't aid in weight loss. If you have a lot of weight to lose, you can go to Horizon and get Adipex which is an appetite suppressant. It's pricey though, $120 every 30-40 days. It's very effective though.
no luck

i didn't think it did all that good for the money and I followed the guidelines. I did best at Weight Watchers.

I went to my fam doctor and got adepex it was on 34.00 for a
Months supply. I liked it, if u don't eat right and exercise, IT WON'T WORK. You can only take in 1200 calories while taking the diet pill.

Only if you have extra money to throw away. Diet shortcuts, especially the chemical ones, never work. Losing weight is a slow process.

Unless you get cancer. I've lost about 75 pounds.

My sister is on Alli and the side effects are not pleasant if you eat too much fat. Adepex is hard on the body as it is something you need to take for a longtime to maintain the weight loss.

I've lost 20 pounds since Oct. I cut down on the breads, fried food, soda, pasta and chips. Drink LOTS of water and excerise three days a week. It's not easy but if you really want to lose the weight you'll do what you have to in order to reach your goal.

There are quick fixes but my experience has been they maybe quick but it does not last.

Best of luck!!!!

You'll lost weight on 1200 calories without a rip-off pill.

Thats your opinion, if u don't wanna use it don't. No ones holding a gun to ur head. Everyone is entitled to do what they want to do. And that's funny you reply to my comment about it being 34.00 a month vs. the comment someone left that paid 120.00 a month, now to me that's a rip off.

Try Weight Watchers. It did work for me as long as I followed the program. I lost 50 pounds and have kept 40 of it off. It is an easy to follow system and even allows you to have treats occasionally. Good luck!

I don't care how much it costs. A pill-based weight loss program is a waste of time.

Unless you're talking about methamphetamine.

Nah sorry don't think so there redneck, that's not true... After I had my baby I couldn't get the weight off and I was prescribed this pill from my FAMILY DOCTOR not some WHACK DIET DOCTOR trying to get all the money he could. And it does work, it keeps you from wanting food all the time, gives you energy, and for people like me who needs that extra push to lose weight, it gives you that motivation. And you see results in a weeks time IF you follow your diet. So not it's not a waste of time. Try it before you knock it! Just because you reply on a lot of forums on here does not deem you the EJUCAIDED REDNECK you think you might be.

What you fail to realize is that there is a big difference between a pill-based weight loss program and one that is based on diet and exercise but augmented with pills.

I am taking in probably only 1500 calories per day and thats not a lot considering I weigh 260. I am a fairly well built man and I have big bones (literally, based on my wrist size doctors have said my bones are quite big when considering I am only a 5'8" tall man).

So, not only am I on a diet that has me eating MUCH less than before I started dieting I workout 4 evenings per week and 3 mornings, with each of the evening workouts burning from 250-450 calories (based on the intensity of the workout) and the morning exercises burn about 150-250 calories.

I have been doing this for about a month and have not seen any results. So, I am considering taking Alli because its only about $35 for a monthly supply whereas the stuff at Horizon weight loss costs about $120 a month and I don't have insurance so it might be more than that.

Anyway, just saying there is a difference between a diet that is based on pills and one that just uses them to try to help.

How about eating fewer calories and exercising more? It always works...and for those that say it doesn't work are lying to themselves. It's that for some it may be a bit harder, so you exercise even more and eat even fewer calories (but don't cut down to nothing-your body will shut down and stop burning calories) and stop sneaking the Twinkies.
People are always looking for the easy thing.

I agree with you for the most part. Like I had stated in a previous post it is about cutting down and doing what is needed to lose weight without depending on things that are not natural to the body to trick your mind into believing you're not hungry.

If you're eating balanced meals and drinking plenty of water along with some form of exercise you should not have a problem losing and maintaining your weight. If someone is having a hard time after 60 days of doing what is required to lose weight; I suggest you make an appt to have your blood checked for thyroid related issues.

My doctor kept telling me that I had to cut back because I was gaining alot of weight. I did what she told me to do but it was not working. So after months of this doctor telling me to try harder I found another doctor to do a blood screen and there was a problem...my hormones were out of wack!!!! Fix the problem and lost about 60% of my weight gain in 3 months. Now, I'm in the home stretch of losing the rest.

There is no reason in my mind to take pills to lose weight...it's your body take control, action and responsiblity of IT!!!!

I used Alli for a couple months. It helped in my diet. I lost 40 pounds, but you also need to have a work out plan as well. I worked out and it payed off. It helped.

You should at weight training our done form of strength training to your routine. Muscle needs more energy for fuel, which essentially burns more calories. Cardio is great yet muscle for the long term metabolic effect is greater for fat loss. Try 1-3 HIIT routines per week.

drink only water. One diet pop a day isn't bad, yet when that is one's only fluid intake IT WILL EFFECT FAT LOSS. Take 2 multi vits a day, if a serving is 1/day take 2. Your typical multi vits are water soluble, if your body is not using them and you have an abundance you will piss them out. There are a few fat soluble such as vit e. This is great in an abundance as well, do to the effects for the skin. There is a few other great supplements as well for fat loss, such as calcium. Recent studies have shown 2-3 x your daily recommended dose shows individuals had higher far loss than the control group. Also studies on CLA showed that individuals that took this had more muscle gain post diet than the control group.

honestly if you are wanting the thermogenic effects and appetite suppression of pills then google ECA or EC stack.

Another great tip is dont rely on the scales, use a tape measure. Weight loss should not be your goal, you want FAT loss.

You all are not saying everything the pill does. It doesn't JUST suppress appetite. Not only does it give you energy, it mimics the effects of adrenaline and makes your heart race which makes you burn more calories.

So, if you are eating even remotely healthy then taking this pill will cause you to lose weight even if you don't change anything else about your lifestyle.

Wow you seen uneducated on this subject. If you read the post of mine, in which you quoted, you would notice the word thermogenic. Generally stimulating diet pills supply at least mild thermogenic effect, some better than others. The greatest over the counter thermogenics are caffeine and ephedrine, a I mentioned before an EC stack. Alli has very minimal if any thermogenic effect, adipex is the big well known prescription thermogenic people know.

These don't really 'mimic' adrenaline to my knowledge, it is a stimulating effect upon the CNS. This in return gives you the increased HR. Caffeine alone can do this depending on dosage and ones sensitivity to it.
