GlaxoSmithKline has just released a new over-the-counter weight loss drug called Alli.
Consumers are rushing to their local drug store to buy the latest fad drug in an attempt to lose weight as quickly as possible. While financially Alli should prove to be a giant success, it will most likely become a weight loss failure.
Clinical trials have even proven that the drug only resulted in a few pounds of weight loss per year. It would in fact be easier to go on a five minute walk, or drink only a half can of soda less than you do now.
Alli is also coming with some very interesting side effects. The drug is reportedly causing diarrhea for many of it’s users. The manufacturers of Alli are suggesting that users carry around an extra pair of pants should the side effects kick in. Sounds pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
The drug works by altering the digestion of dietary fats. While although the bad fats are blocked, so are the good ones. This leaves your body in a state of deficiency of healthy oils like omega-3 fatty acids.
If you find yourself suffering from obesity or weight gain, try engaging in regular excercise and controlling your appetite through a program of nutritional supplementation.
