I just started taking alli a week ago and so far I love it, I track my food and fat intake religiously, and work out 5 days a week. I was doing all that before the pill with little to no weightloss.

I've been taking Alli for 10 days. I've lost 2% of my body weight so far. It is a lifestyle change. Especially if you are addicted to sweets, fried foods, salty foods, bad white carbs and candy like myself.
