All About Alli: How Much Will I Lose?


Updated February 15, 2014

According to the manufacturer's literature (provided at retailers carrying Alli), the results can be significant.

The claim is that taking the pill and following the diet and exercise plan recommended can help you lose 50 percent more weight than dieting alone.

The results may vary slightly from person to person. The manufacturer claims for every five pounds you lose, Alli will help you lose an additional two to three pounds.

In other words, if you would normally lose six pounds in a month with diet and exercise, taking Alli may help you lose a total of eight or nine pounds in that month.

Remember, Alli will only work correctly if you follow a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet. Simply taking the pill will not lead to these types of results and will likely cause some very unpleasant side effects.

Keep in mind that a healthy rate at which to lose weight is between .5 and two pounds each week.
