I recently noticed the new diet pill called Alli stacked on shelves as soon as you enter the health/beauty section of one of the local stores. I have heard about Alli a few months back but never really bothered to look up anything about it. But now having actually seen it on store shelves, I figured I’d visit the site and see what it’s about.
After reading about the side effects or rather what they term “treatment effects”, I actually had to laugh. I mean, reading this has to make you wonder why someone would bother:
You may feel an urgent need to go to the bathroom. Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, it’s probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work
I know many overweight people out there are probably going to feel like this new pill will be the answer they are looking for. But please think twice before turning to magic in a bottle. Being fit is a lifestyle change. No matter what diet fad you think may help, the chances of your gaining back all of the weight or more is significantly higher because you end up going back to your old ways of eating.
You’re better off becoming educated about how to eat healthier and becoming more active. There is no pill, drink, or shake that can get you in shape. It’s all about your life and the choices you make about what you eat and what you do to stay active.
