There Are No Shortcuts To Losing Weight

At the beginning of the year I wrote a list of 100 goals that I would like to accomplish. One of the goals was to weigh a healthy weight which for me is between 130 and 140 pounds. Since I’ve been overweight for the last 17 years, I wanted to make sure I approached this is the smartest way possible.

I’ve never been one for fad diets, I don’t want to heavily limit my food choices since I know that will lead to failure, and I don’t believe in diet pills. To me diet pills are a wild promise that something that isn’t easy, will be easy.

Even with this negative opinion of diet pills, I was intrigued when I heard about Alli – the only weight loss pill approved by the FDA. And as usual when I am intrigued, I search online to learn more.

I can across many, many, manyalli reviews from various sources with various qualifications. First mentioned is the way Alli “works” by blocking some of the fat in the food that you eat from being absorbed allowing up to 50% more weight loss than just dieting and exercise alone. The example they give of this is that you can lose 15 pounds by including Alli instead of just 10 pounds with just watching what you eat and exercising regularly.

And it is true that the FDA approved Alli as being truthful in its claim – it will block some fat. But it’s important to know, and Alli is the first to say it, that without dieting and exercising Alli isn’t going to do you much good.

Furthermore, as far as I’m concerned, I would rather not take a pill if I don’t have to.

To sum up, if you want a little help losing your extra weight, Alli won’t hurt and may even help a little. But if you are looking for an easy way to a size four, this isn’t it.
