Taking Alli (Orlistat) with a HIGH fat low carb diet...advice?

Low carb (thus high fat) diets are the only kind that work for me. I decided to try taking Alli along with it, even though Alli recommends a LOW fat diet. Mine is definitely high fat. So seems to reason that if Alli (Orlistat) blocks fat then this is a win-win situation. So far, aside from advertised side effects, it seems to be working great. I love knowing that all the extra fat I'm comsuming is just going right through me.

So is there anything wrong with this combination health-wise? I am taking the multi-vitamin every day. So it seems like I just have to put up with the "discharge" side effects, but if it works then what's the problem? Why would Alli recommend against a high fat diet except to note that there will be additional side effects??

Anyone else tried this combination? Thanks.

I'm also wondering what side effects or implications there are with taking orlistat while also taking omeprazole and pepto bismol. Would any of those block the orlistat from working or vice versa?
