I was sitting in the drive-through line at McDonalds when the Walgreens sign flashed me. “Alli is here!” it screamed. While I waited for my six Chicken McNuggets and XL Diet Coke, I thought about Alli. All the grocery stores are advertising the new over-the-counter weight loss drug. It’s Orlistat without a prescription, but will it really help you lose weight?
I’ve talked about this drug before:
This drug is only recommended for use for six months. It’s supposed to teach you how to eat healthy by giving you unpleasant gas and greasy, oily stools if you eat too much fat.
You don’t need to punish yourself. There is no need to put yourself through digestive distress to teach yourself a lesson. You can learn how to eat healthy without Alli, just like I ordered the 6 piece Chicken McNuggets instead of the Big Mac. Sure, it’s not perfect, but it’s better than the alternative.
Don’t waste your money on drugs that put you in pain and embarrass you if you eat poorly. You deserve better than that.
