What is Alli?
Alli is a fat-targeting diet pill only licenced to adults with a BMI that is equal to or exceeds 28. It reduces the quantities of fats that your body is able to absorb when you eat, resulting in more of them passing through your system instead.
How does Alli work?
Alli works through the active ingredient of orlistat to target fats in the digestive process, blocking enzymes, resulting in approximately ¼ of the fats in your meal passing through your system instead of being absorbed. This medication should be taken alongside efforts to make changes to diet and exercise regimes in order to see results.
How should Alli be taken?
Before starting treatment with Alli, you should start adopting a lower-calorie, healthier diet. It can be taken either immediately before, during, or up to one hour after a meal, and should be swallowed whole with water. Do not take more than the recommended dose if you consume a meal with higher fat content.
Is Alli suitable for me?
Alli is only recommended for use by adults who register as having a BMI equal to or exceeding 28. Do not take Alli if you are allergic to orlistat or any of the other ingredients, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are taking blood thinners, if you are taking ciclosporin, if you have cholestasis, or if you experience issues absorbing food. It is not suitable for use by those under the age of 18.
