    I’ve been taking this product for two years now. It was prescribed by my doctor after I stopped smoking and gained quite a bit of weight. I lost 60 pounds but also dieted vigorously and exercised regularly at the gym on the treadmill for 35 minutes. Oily discharge sometimes? you bet, but only when I ate meals with a high fat content. Couple bits of advice: if you feel like you need to fart, don’t. You can’t be sure of what will come out. Restrain yourself until you get to a toilet, just in case. Also, not only fried chicken and fried food have fat. Any kind of red meat has fat content. Rule of thumb for me is if calories from fat are high, I take a pill with the meal. This product is a lifesaver but it only works with diet and exercise.

    I started taking Alli about two months ago to augment my diet and exercise program. I’m active, and with a BMI of 26, I just wanted to lose about 20 lbs that wasn’t coming off with my fairly intense cardio routine and low-fat diet. I would take Alli as directed with meals containing some fat but rarely more than the suggested amount of fat. And I did experience the treatment effects with meals within the suggested fat allotment: frequent, oily stools, random oily discharge (very gross), and stomach pain about 45 minutes after eating. However, they weren’t severe enough to make me stop taking the med. Over time, I didn’t lose an ounce but kept taking the pill as directed, hoping that it would kick in over time. It didn’t. And then I had a higher fat meal after taking one Alli pill. I know that the`treatment effects’ are supposed to act like aversion therapy, but this was ridiculous. I ended up in the ER with crippling, stabbing stomach pain and dry-heaving. I had such a bad reaction that stomach pumping was treatment of choice. The ER doc suggested I throw the pills out as soon as I got home.

    After recovering from the ER ordeal and promptly pitching the bottle of Alli (the aversion therapy didn’t work to GlaxoSmithKline’s advantage this time), I did a little bit of research and found that I was not the only one with adverse reactions requiring medical care. This med has been linked to pancreatitis, gall stones, and possibly colon cancer (research was kind of spotty on this). Will everyone react this way to the drug? Of course not. Every med has side effects and not everyone can tolerate certain drugs. However, I hope that people will consider the risks and weigh the benefits before spending quite a bit of money on something that may not work.

    Overall, I ended up with nasty side effects, a considerable ER bill, and no weight loss. And for those it does work for, you may become dependent on the drug for continued weight loss or even weight maintenance (this is from the actual website)- quite a price to pay to lose 2 to 3 more pounds more than you would have with diet and exercise alone. If Alli works for you, awesome- more power to you. But before you buy, please read the fine print- the pill may cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

    This review is from: Alli (60mg) (Health and Beauty)

    It makes me sad that all these people are attributing their weight loss to a drug when they’re really the ones doing all the work. If you look at the science behind this, the drug only blocks about 100 calories if you’re adhering to the required diet (which is necessary). It’s sticking to the diet that’s yielding all these results, and all these people are doing that all by themselves. Perhaps the threat of having gastric distress adds additional motivation to stay on the diet, but any one of them could have done that without this pill.

    The drug doesn’t even claim to increase your metabolism, or prevent storage. All it does is block 25% of the 45 grams of fat that you’re allowed each day. That is literally 101.25 calories, about as much as you’ll get from a single slice of cheese. That in itself can’t double the weight loss results. The people using Alli are doing all the work and giving the pill all the credit.

    I got this book because a friend lost 40 pounds in the last 10 months and was raving about Spark and the SparkPeople website. So I bought this and I’m happy I listened to her. I think this book is necessary for anyone trying to lose weight even if you don’t use the diet or exercise information in it.

    This book is more than just diet and exercise. It’s inspirational and the focus is on you as a person and gently nudges you into creating a better lifestyle in an easy manner for yourself. Diet and exercise come after that for true and permanent weight loss. That’s a big distinction from other diet and exercise books.

    There’s incredible support at the SparkPeople website. In fact, you should definitely join up there in order to get the most out of this book.

    One of the biggest reasons people fail at weight loss is because they don’t have any positive support that they can fall back. So maximize the benefits of this book by joining the website to get the kind of support that will propel you to success. It’s free.

    Like another reviewer mentioned, this program successfully connects weight loss with all the other aspects of your life instead of having a disconnect or wall between weight loss and the rest of your life.

    Spark is great for taking information from other books and programs that have more of the nuts and bolts of fast weight loss tricks and meshing them into your life without making weight loss a burden and a big struggle.

    I’ve personally lost 24 pounds and 3.5 inches from my waist in 5 weeks (a lot faster weight loss than my friend) by using this Spark book, the SparkPeople website for support, The 5-Second Flat Belly Secret – Lose 2-3 Inches from Your Belly in Less Than 1 Month for targeted fat loss from my stomach and waist, 5-Minute Miracle Exercises: Lose 5 Pounds in 2 Weeks – Only 5 Minutes a Day! for quick fat loss workouts at home, and The Mediterranean Diet: (author To Come) as the basis for my diet.

    I should say that I got 2 of those books because I saw them on the “customers who bought this item also bought” list for Spark. That’s a great resource to use to find complimentary books on Amazon.

    Spark is definitely worth buying.

    Much more than just another diet book!, December 29, 2009

    True or false: People fail to lose weight and keep it off because they don’t realize they need to eat healthy food and exercise.

    We know that isn’t true– everyone knows about healthy food and exercise. But isn’t that the message of most “diet” books? Once you find the right magic foods and the right magic exercise, once you have that secret knowledge not found in any other diet book, then YOU will lose that weight!

    If we are willing to be honest, the real reason we are not losing weight is US— we end up choosing to eat that dessert, to sleep in instead of pounding the pavement, to say to ourselves “this is never going to work.”

    And that’s where The Spark starts: with how we view and live our life and how we can make sustainable positive change. In fact, it doesn’t even start talking about what foods to eat until page 84.

    Where it starts is with four “cornerstones” of positive living: focus, fitness, fire, and positive force. The author takes a chapter on each of these concepts and lays out how they apply to life in general and a life shift like weight loss in particular.

    So, does this work? Does the effort to really understand the principles of positive change make a difference? Well, this book is really just the distillation of a website & online community, […], which has helped tens of thousands of people make meaningful change. In fact, the center of the book contains short bios and color photos of seventeen people, real people, real people who you can actually contact through the sparkpeople online community, who have used the principles to lose big weight (most of them 100+ pounds) and keep it off and really change their lives.

    Yes, the healthy diet and exercise tips are in there, just like in every diet book. But what makes this book different, and special, is that the focus isn’t the food, but you: a practical plan to change your outlook and jump-start your motivation so that you can practice a healthy lifestyle and change your life. A very good way to start out the new year, or any time you decide to change for the better.

    Everyone wants a spark of inspiration to live a healthier, thinner, fitter lifestyle, and there’s a good chance you’ll get it from The Spark. Author Chris Downie gives a formula for success that includes goal setting, positive motivation, an eating program, exercise, and community support through his worldclass website, […]. In fact, the real magic of the Spark program revolves around participation in the sparkpeople website, which is more exciting than the book.

    The Spark diet is a 4-stage process, which Downie bills as a way of life rather than a diet. However, it really is a low-fat, moderate calorie diet, and it draws heavily on the USDA food program guidelines. There are 4 stages, and each stage has several sub-steps. All these activities make the diet complicated to understand and implement. As for exercise, Downie advocates 10-minute “streaks” of continuous, positive activity every day.

    The Spark has a lot of goodness going for it, and Downie’s positive, contagious energy is hands down the best feature of the book and his website ambiance. The program clearly works for a lot of people, and Downie has a legion of raving fans. That said, like many weight loss and fitness books, The Spark suffers from predictable, re-hashed information and consequently did not hold my attention.

    Also, Downie’s organization of material creates confusion rather than clarity. A few times I had to read a whole page or more before I could figure out what the chapter was going to be about. In general, I had a hard time following his lead.

    This book is recommended for people who are drawn to online interactions and who like a lot of support. It’s not recommended for the computer illiterate.
