I saw it at Costco too (there was a sign sticking up high in the pharmaceuticals area), they sure must be pushing hard. I'm sure there is a lot of money to be made...

I was on Alli when it first came out in June. I was on it for two weeks and lost 6 pounds. Then things in my life got a little crazy and I lost track of my diet. Needless to say I gained it all back. I started back on Alli three days ago. I never had any side effects from Alli. All you have to do is stay under the 15 grams of fat per meal and you will do just fine. It really helps me stay on plan because I don't want any of those nasty side effects!!

Alli sits in your digestive system and absorbs some of the fats you consume. That way, rather than get absorbed into the side of your intestinal wall, they sit in little globs and get excreted. This can result in "oily brown spotting" if you don't observe the directions properly.

Personally I am staying clear of Alli because of the cost and because I'd rather not cope with any of the *ahem* side effects.
