    A couple of the girls in the office have started taking this new 'wonder drug' supposed to aid in weight loss by only allowing around 30% of fat to be absorbed.

    Apparently there are some nasty side effects if you still trough out like a piglet, which include explosive diahorreah and 'fatty stools'.

    Being of a larger build myself, I am considering purchasing some of these as part of a controlled diet, along with exercise.

    Just wondering if any of you lot have tried them yet?

    There was a thread about this, I infiltrated the AlliPlan forum and came back here with loads of really funny and gross stories.

    I'll go see if I can find the thread

    Basically, it makes you shit grease. It did not sound like much fun at all.

    AFAIK, it's insanely fucking expensive (around 150 quid per kg of phat lost), and while it does work, it's only really practical if you've got a BMI of over 28. In which case you've probably got issues that go beyond simply liking the ol' choccy a bit too much.

    Eat less, exercise more. It's not rocket science and you shouldn't need a 'wonder drug'.

    +1 Wastelander.

    The best way to lose weight is take up speed, crystal meth, coke or crack will do as well.

    I think it works out cheaper than Alli as well.

    It's a fat inhibitor isn't it? So all that means is if you eat fatty foods, you don't adsorb them, you just shit them out.

    And because it's basically like grease, you don't have a lot of control over when it's going to come out.

    I've read (someone here linked it) about how people taking this get involuntary grease-shits if they have a heavy night of KFC, if you get my meaning.

    Personally, I think it just scares you into a healthy diet. No-one wants to shit their pants in public (I think).

    I have tried but nothing happened!
    I exercised every day but weekends for like 5 weeks and stopped eating after 6:30 but I lost about 3 lbs and thats it!

    I SHIT 3 lbs!

    I have an exercise bike, a walker, dumbells and a chest expander thingy but I don't really know what's good and what's not doing much at all.

    I've always been a bit bigger, but I reckon 1/2 the problem is working in an office all day sat on my arse munching shit and the other 1/2 is the huge amounts of alcohol consumed on a weekend.

    Here's a novel idea, just do the latter two and stop looking for a shortcut.

    Mmmm. Tempting as this is, I only earn your average wage.

    Last time I checked it was 40 a gram of brons.

    And a gram consists mainly of crushed up asprin and persil.

    The timing of your meals don't mean shit. If you spend more calories than you eat, you'll lose weight - if you eat more calories than you spend, you'll gain weight. Simple as.

    So very, very wrong.

    Nutrient timing is a massivley important feature of any healthy diet.

    True to an extent, but if you eat your calorie allowance of junk food, you are less likely to lose weight than if you eat a healthy macro controlled diet.

    Yeah I know I know, it's all blatantly obvious really innit.

    Its just theres always someone passing around Celebrations or Roses, someone brought in doughnuts or there's been a Maccy D run.

    I suppose the answer to the whole problem is just get some willpower.
