Orlistat Reviews from

Here are Orlistat reviews from

  • For Obesity: “I have been using it already for 2 weeks and it is a marvellous pill I recommend for anyone to take”
  • Alli (orlistat) for Obesity: “Not only am I premenopausal, but I also have no gallbladder to breakdown the bile, so since my surgery and going into menopause, I have gained over 20 lbs. So I needed something to help a little more than most people to eliminate bad fat and flush it out. After just a day or two, I noticed it doing its job, and I actually feel a lot better too. I don't have that bloated or feeling too full feeling. I did make sure to start this on my weekend to make sure everything would go okay and I wouldn't have any accidents. I noticed as long as I follow the Simple Plan of lower calorie or lower fat diet, and just taking one with my higher fat meals, I haven't had any problem. Lost 3 lbs in 6 days so far, so actually pretty impressed. I also think this is a good product to take for those that are trying to lose weight with no gallbladder or going through menopause , those pounds that snuck up very quickly.”
  • Xenical (orlistat) for Obesity: “25, female, started off at 15st 7lbs or 99kg or 217lbs (I’m 5’7). Originally was looking for a quick fix but realistically when it comes to weight loss there isn’t one. I gained 70lbs in the last 4 years and finally realized how unhappy I was. 20 days in and I have lost 14lbs/6kg. I am strict on my diet, though to be honest haven’t done the recommended exercise. So I can only imagine how much I would have lost in that time. As for the oily orange stools, I haven’t had any uncontrollable accidents, you can see it in the toilet bowl but haven’t had any embarrassing moments as of yet, but I am keeping within the recommended daily allowance of fats. I would recommend Orlistat to anyone who needs a helping hand, I have found that it has made me really determined to make better choices regarding my health and weight. Co workers and family have noticed a difference in my body and I can feel it in my clothes so I’m really happy.”
  • Xenical (orlistat) for Obesity: “Started this on Xenical the 13.06.20 at 18st 9lbs and now I'm 16st 0.5lbs and lost 2st 8.5lbs so far, doesn't work if you don't eat well. It encourages you to eat well as you are on the toilet all the time if you don't eat well, so far so good! It really has changed my life”

Orlistat Reviews on Youtube

Here is an excellent review of Orlistat from Crazy Cat Paigey. She has been losing weight with Xenical 120mg tablets. A summary of her review is that Xenical works because it blocks the body from absorbing fat. When you eat high fat foods while taking Xenical, it actually has some unpleasant side effects. It will cause a person to fart and have to go to the bathroom much more often. A person then stops eating fat because they do not want to experience the bad side effects. While unpleasant, the side effect is manageable as you lower the amount of fat you consume, thereby reinforcing healthy habits. Ultimately, if you take Xenical properly and allow it to convince you to stop eating high fat foods, you will lose weight.

Weight loss benefits of Orlistat

Our body absorbs a lot of fat in our digestive tract and they create fatty acids. The fat absorption can occur only if there are ‘Lipases’ or the enzyme that can catalyze and allow chemical processes for the effective metabolism of fat. Orlistat is a known Lipase inhibitor. It helps reduce the absorption of fat in the body by preventing gastrointestinal lipase production.

The efficiency of this anti-obesity drug is 100% scientifically confirmed. There have been clinical trials affirming it. Respondents prescribed with Orlistat, taking it with diet and exercises are bound to lose 2 to 3 kilos or more in weight within one year of taking the medication. Orlistat is able to block approximately 25 to 30 percent (25-30%) of fat in most diets, thus reducing the total consumed calories in any given schedule.

Precautions when taking Orlistat

Orlistat can cause some side effects like any other weight loss medicine. For many users, they experience an unpleasant gastrointestinal experience, frequent feelings of moving bowel, and yellowish discharge on their underwear. These side effects will reduce with frequent use of Orlistat. For other side effects, refer to the product information leaflet of the product. To help minimize these side effects, ensure that you have a diet with at least 20%-30% of calories from fatty foods.

Orlistat is medically safe to be used for the long-term. Like with anything, the drug should only be used only as per doctor’s advice. Orlistat may be contraindicated for some other medical conditions like underactive thyroid, pancreatitis, liver or kidney problems, diabetes, gallbladder problems, and nutrient absorption problems in patients.

The medication should never be given to children under 12 years old and should be kept out of children’s reach.

The human body is able to absorb fat in its simplest form in order to boost digestion. But fat that is not digested gets deposited in various parts of the body. Weight gain occurs as the storage of fat in the body increases.

To achieve full weight loss benefits, a nutritious diet, active and healthy lifestyle and exercise are highly recommended.
