Does Alli weight loss work?

In brief: Alli

Alli does not work well for most women.
The weight loss with Alli is accomplished through the decreased absorption of dietary fat. The problem with this is that most women are usually carbohydrate lovers--breads, starches, fruits, sweets-these food types can have almost no fat in them, therefore excess carb calories=more stored body fat. I have not seen many GI side effects; also little help!
