What is Orlistat?
Orlistat is a medication that is used to help people lose weight. Studies have shown that Orlistat can help people lose more weight than if they were dieting alone. This weight loss drug is intended for adults over the age of 18. It is required to follow a reduced calorie, low fat diet when on Orlistat.
How does Orlistat Work?
It works by blocking the absorption of fats. This means when you eat food, you will not absorb the fats which are consumed. In a nutshell, it leaves behind the carbohydrates and proteins for your calories, while passing the fats through your system unused. This means you are not gaining calories from fat.
How is Orlistat Used?
Orlistat tablets are taken orally after each meal, potentially three times a day depending on how often you have meals. If you skip a meal, you can skip the Orlistat tablet. This is because it is only effective when you consume a meal. It is typically taken as 120mg capsules up to one hour after every meal.

How Much Weight Can You Lose?
Taking Orlistat along with the recommended diet promotes a gradual, modest weight loss of about 1 to 2 pounds a week. For every 2 pounds you lose from diet alone, alli® can help you lose 1 pound more. In clinical studies, most people lost 5-10 pounds over 6 months.
Orlistat blocks some of the fat that you eat, keeping it from being absorbed by your body. Orlistat is used to aid in weight loss, or to help reduce the risk of regaining weight already lost. This medicine must be used together with a reduced-calorie diet. Orlistat is for use only in adults.
Is Orlistat the same as Xenical?
Xenical is a brand name of generic Orlistat. Xenical is essentially the same drug as Orlistat. Both will help a person lose weight by blocking the absorption of fat in the digestive tract. Neither drug will help if the reason for being overweight is hypothyroidism. Xenical will help you lose weight if you consume a calorie restricted diet which contains fats, as it will block the body from absorbing fat.
Is Orlistat Effective?
When used correctly, clinical studies have found that people can achieve 50% more weight loss compared to dieting alone. Results are seen quickly, with fat excretion from the body within 24 to 48 hours of taking the medicine. Orlistat is appropriate for people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or above, or a BMI of 28 kg/m2 with risk factors like high blood pressure, cholesterol or diabetes.
What does Orlistat Do To The Body?
Orlistat can help a person to lose an extra 50% body fat when used with a calorie-restricted diet. Orlistat reduces approximately 30% of dietary fat which is consumed. To get the most from this medication, one should consume a low-fat diet. It is recommended that the diet be rich in fruit and vegetables, and that the daily intake of protein and carbohydrate is distributed equally over three meals.
Other Weight Loss Medications

Alli Diet Pills
Alli is similar to Orlistat and Xenical, except that it is 60mg instead of 120mg. Alli does not require a prescription in the UK. If you want the benefits that blocking fat absorption brings, without the need of pursuing a prescription, consider getting Alli tablets. We can ship Alli diet pills to you without a prescription.
Xenical Diet Pills
Xenical is the branded version of Orlistat. If you prefer the branded version, or you have a prescription for Xenical and would like to order it online, we can ship this medicine to you quickly. If you prefer to save money by buying generic Orlistat, that option is also available above.
