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.
