Weight loss with oily discharge

hdrlogo.gifA few weeks ago, CNBC ran a report on Alli, the new weight loss drug from Glaxo Smith Kline, set to hit the market next week.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but dietary fat (the kind that is being mentioned here) and body fat are very different from each other. Just by blocking the absorption of dietart fat doesn’t mean that a person will loose weight (body fat). In order to loose weight, a person must burn more calories that they take in. So all this talk about blocking the absorption of dietary fat to loose weight is misleading and should not be trusted. On the other hand, by blocking dietary fat via a chemical we are messing (no pun intended) around with a finely tuned digestive system that supplies our bodies with all of it’s perceived energy and nutritional requirements. It is concievable that by blocking dietary fat, we can throw off this system so badly that we end up sick, malnurished, gaining weight, or other unplesant side effects.

    No you are right, but, by blocking the dietary fat, you are also blocking those calories that come with it. But honestly, considering the whole “plan,” which involves cutting down on calories and fat, along with some daily activity, I would imagine you would do a pretty good job at losing extra pounds. But yeah, these are certainly some pretty unpleasant side effects.

    Damn people, forget the easy pills and go for a damn run.
