What is alli and what it is used for:
alli is used for weight loss in adults aged 18 and over who are overweight and have a body mass index (BMI) of 28 or above. Body mass index (BMI) is a way to find out if you have a healthy weight, or are overweight, for your height. The Body mass index chart will help you find out whether you are overweight and whether alli is right for you.
How alli works:
The active ingredient in alli is designed to target fat in your digestive system. It stops about a quarter of the fat in your meals from being absorbed. This fat will pass out of the body in your stools.
alli must be used in combination with a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. The action of the capsules will assist your efforts by helping you lose more weight compared to dieting alone.
For every 2lb you lose from dieting alone, adding alli can help you lose 1lb more.
Taking alli with food and drink:
alli should be used along with a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. Try to start this diet before beginning treatment.
Multivitamins and alli:
You should take a multivitamin every day. alli can lower the levels of some vitamins absorbed by the body. The multivitamins should contain vitamins A,D,E and K. You should take the multivitamin at bedtime, when you will not be taking alli, to help ensure that the vitamins are absorbed.
alli Starter Guide:
The alli starter guide is an information leaflet introducing alli and the alli programme. It's is supplied free of charge with every purchase of alli and will help support your weight loss programme.
