    Has/is anyone using Alli along with their diet program? Does it work/has it helped? Thinking of giving it a go but interested to see if it works when used correctly with healthy eating x

    As far as I was aware, it works if you eat a low fat diet/encourages a low fat diet.
    Was offered xenical by docs once, but declined due to being on slimming world and eating 'low fat' anyway.
    And I can't stand the thought of THOSE side effects.

    Haha. Good luck to you if you're trying it though hun xx

    yeah it's the only thing that puts my off tbh but i've had a look on their website and for my weight etc alli reccomends that I have no more than 60grms of fat a day as the side affects are more likely to occur when eating too much fat than is reccomended but myfitnesspal has me on 43 grams of fat a day and i'm not exceeding it so far so I should be ok xxx

    I tried alli......lasted a week and even tho i stayed within the recommended fat intake suffered some very nasty and unladylike side effects!!! ( the side effects made me ill as well!) Personally i ended up binning them and i wouldnt go near them again...thats just my opinion tho!! Xx

    U cud try some different ones Hun, to assist u, Adios or Zotrim tablets, I been on Zotrim it's a hunger suppressant, they fairly expensive in chemists, u can buy off eBay a bit cheaper, Adios max is £12 n Zotrim is £17 in boots so anything cheaper than that off eBay is good x

    Have you heard of hoodia? Apparently that supresses hunger (which is my problem on sf! haha) and the craving for FOOD!) x

    Hi I know you've decided to get stuff from Holland and Barratt, but thought I would share my experience. I have been doing slimfast for 4 and half weeks and been on Alli for a week and a half. I have had no side effects and feel the pills work really well with slimfast. I lost 4 pounds last week which I don't think I would have done without the alli. Just make sure when you are counting your fat to look at the saturated fat and the fat content. If I feel my meal might be a bit fattier than alli recommends but is with my calorie limit I will not take it. I still take the ALli with each shake/meal bar.
