Jessica Carreras recently wrote this Alli review article for the Michigan Journal about her results in using Alli , the new wonder diet pill that I have written about before. As we all really suspect from a fitness standpoint this pill is not going to help you lose if you are not taking care of yourself with a great diet and daily exercise.
Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Hydroxy Cut – and the newest loss miracle? Hello, Alli. This in fact a first person Alli review
Praised as a miraculous “fat blocker” that helps women to lose 50 percent more when on a diet, Alli has received lots of criticism lately because of allegations that it may cause, er, unpleasant side effects to the tune of fecal incontinence. Indeed, on the bottle, it warns potential users to begin using Alli on a day that you can be at home near a bathroom, just in case. Yikes. Anyway here is an Alli review from someone that used it for a week.
Alli Review Experiences
So here’s my confession, and I say that because I am somewhat ashamed: I tried it. What can I say? I was curious and my shorts haven’t fit so well this summer. Plus, my mom was footing the bill because she wanted to try it too. In my defense, it was her idea.
Shame aside, I’m here to quell the rumors and spill the beans about this miracle loss pill. No pun intended.
I have to admit, I was deathly afraid of Alli the first day I took it. My mom and I would call each other every couple of hours asking if the other had “experienced any side effects,” i.e. was either of us in need of a Depends and a change of clothes. To our pleasant surprise, neither had. In fact, neither of us felt any different at all, good or bad.
So I took my pills, three a day, and turned down the McDonalds and the cookies for fear that I would regret them later in more ways than one.
One Week on Alli
To keep the story short, it’s just over a week later and I told my mom she can keep her Alli to herself. The reason? Yesterday was our weigh in. Yep, you guessed it. No fecal incontinence, but no loss either. Even my mom, who I’ll admit has a much healthier diet and stronger resolve than I (midnight Taco Bell runs, anyone?), didn’t shed a pound. Okay, so it’s only been one week. But still.
I didn’t necessarily quit because it wasn’t working, although I’ll admit that I’m among the millions of women waiting for that miracle pill. I quit because it made me afraid to eat and, quite frankly, I love eating. When we entered into the Web site that we hadn’t lost any , it told us that obviously, we needed to eat even less fat. Smaller pants size be damned. I’m sick of salads.
The bottom line: It’s not worth the hefty price tag, or the fear. Really, though, most loss plans aren’t. If I really reach a point where I am determined to lose weight, I’m confident that I know how to on my own. I don’t need a book or a Web site or a bottle of pills to tell me that grilled chicken is a better choice than Pizza Hut, or that taking the stairs burns more calories than eating a doughnut while riding the elevator.
And I certainly don’t need a loss pill that makes me afraid to eat French fries but doesn’t help me lose any . Goodbye, Alli.
