I just finished my first week on Alli. And no, I wasn't perfect on it. 90% of the time I took the pills and kept my fat intake low and ate on average 1600 cals per day for the week. One day I didn't take the pills at all because I was eating at a friends house and had no control over what would be served. But I made sure I ate responsibly and in a lower calorie range and kept track of fat in my head the best I could. I didn't use it as an opportunity to go wild... But I also don't believe in perfect. Life isn't perfect. I had one night I just enjoyed myself maybe a little too much but I hopped on the bandwagon the next day pronto. Tonight we are going out to eat, I won't take a pill. I'll be good, but not 19 grams of fat good. Just a few over and you have the possibilty of treatment effects. I just flat out don't want them
. According to the Alli site physican, the pill only works on the meal you took it with BUT TEs from that meal can occur up to 72 hours afterwards.
All that being said, I started last week at 156.8 and I'm at a solid 155. Almost 2 pounds. I took in @55 fat grms per day ( 19 per meal) , only exercised twice (although my job is very physical), drank my no-cal, no caffeine beverages and enjoyed the week. No TEs so far. My lowest in the last couple of years has been 147, if I can hit that by Valentine's I will be a happy camper.
Keep going, please post how you are doing with it. Take care.
