alli is clinically proven to help you lose more weight than dieting alone. The capsule works only in your digestive system to stop about a quarter of the fat in your meals being absorbed. This fat passes out of your body and may cause changes to your bowel movements. Eat lower-fat meals to help manage these effects.

Being overweight increases your risk of developing several serious health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. You should see your doctor for a check-up.
