The New Alli Diet Pill–Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid!

Filed under: In The News — @ June 18, 2007

Have you considered becoming “committed” to Alli for weight loss?

Forgive me for not jumping for joy or being filled with excitement over the new over-the-counter weight loss drug being heavily promoted right now called Alli. But in Episode 61 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” today, you’ll hear exactly why anyone who is livin’ la vida low-carb should stay very far away from this latest so-called miracle diet pill that some believe is the ever-elusive “magic bullet.” But are they shooting themselves in the foot instead?

Let me warn you ahead of time…my producer had way to much FUN with this one. You’ll see what I mean when you listen:

Doesn’t that just make you wanna run out and get your very own stash of Alli for yourself? NOT! It’s truly amazing how a drug with so many well-known adverse side effects could actually be approved by the FDA to be sold over-the-counter while something as harmless as stevia has a tough time getting approved as a sweetener. That FDA is one messed up government entity, I’m telling you! This is a lawsuit worse than Vioxx or Avandia ever dreamed of becoming!

Have you considered taking Alli, the OTC version of Xenical and orlistat, to help you shed a few extra pounds? Or did you, like one of my readers recently, decide against it because of the risky side effects? Tell us your thoughts about Alli and whether you would ever consider taking a drug like this one in conjunction with your low-carb lifestyle.

Oh, and have you seen what some creative marketing people who make other diet pills are doing lampooning the side effects of Alli? Check this out:

Um, in a word…EWWWWWWW! I think I’d be avoiding Alli if I were you.

Don’t miss Thursday’s episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” because we only have two interviews left from my trip to Nashville last month for the American Society of Bariatric Physicians obesity conference. Hear from the heart of a real doctor who is treating his overweight and obese patients with exactly what they need to be successful. And it ain’t Alli!
