How is alli different?

alli is clinically proven to boost weight loss when added to a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. It is the first pharmacy-only weight loss aid available - it isn't a miracle pill or quick-fix solution. It encourages steady, gradual weight loss and helps to reward your efforts where it matters - the scales.

alli is clinically proven to boost weight loss when added to a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. It is the first pharmacy-only weight loss aid available - it isn't a miracle pill or quick-fix solution. It encourages steady, gradual weight loss and helps to reward your efforts where it matters - the scales.

alli works in a unique way. The active ingredient orlistat attaches itself to some of the body's enzymes that break down fat. This prevents some of the fat you eat from being digested and absorbed.


What is alli?

alli is exciting news for adults who are overweight with a BMI of 28 or above, who want to lose weight and who understand the importance of sensible eating when they’re trying to lose weight. If you know what it’s like to step on the scales and not lose as much weight as you were expecting, alli could be just what you need.

  • alli is not a magic slimming pill. It’s a weight loss method designed to be used with a support programme to help boost your weight loss.
  • So for every 2 lb (1 kg) you lose from eating healthily, adding alli can help you lose 1lb (1/2 kg) more.
  • The active ingredient in alli, orlistat, is designed to target fat in your digestive system. It works by stopping approximately 25% of the fat you eat being absorbed into your body and instead, this fat passes out of your body in your stools.
  • It is the first pharmacy-only weight loss aid available.

  • Due to the way the alli works, it’s important to eat a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. You may do so already, in which case you’ll probably only need to make some minor adjustments – check your fat and calorie targets for more details.

    • alli 60mg capsules are a weight loss aid containing orlistat.  Before you take alli, read the information contained in the alli pack.


    • A healthy approach

      alli is not a miracle slimming pill or a crash diet. Alli, in combination with the alli support programme, helps you lose weight gradually.  The alli programme also gives you tools to help you sustain your weight loss over the long term, if you’re prepared to make positive lifestyle changes. Losing weight and keeping it off can help improve your general health and reduce your risk of developing several serious health problems
