Since the birth of my son, I have struggled to get back to my slim youthful size. I had managed to trim off 10 lbs over the course of five months by eating smaller portions and walking every day. My class reunion was five months away and I still had 15 lbs to lose. My weight loss had hit a plateau and I was actually starting to gain weight back.
In desperation I decided to try Alli weight loss capsules. Alli is a knocked down version of the prescription drug Orlistat. I was very nervous about taking a drug for weight loss. I read that you can have horrible side-effects from some online forums and almost didn’t take it.
The starter Alli kit contains some booklets and instructs you to sign up on the website for a custom plan. The website turned out to be a very useful weight loss tool. I was able to customize a menu plan for myself. Alli worked for me because I was terrified of eating foods that contained too many grams of fat and would cause me to get ill.
While I do believe the Alli works well, I think that part of the reason it worked as well as it did was due to the placebo effect. I believe that I would have lost weight without taking Alli if I had followed the diet and exercise regimen that I did while taking Alli. I don’t believe that I would have lost as much without Alli thought. I also feel that Alli helped me break through my weight loss plateau and is good choice for slow and consistent weight loss.
