Orlistat is an effective weight loss medication. By limiting the number of calories your body absorbs, you are forcing your body to take in fewer calories while consuming your normal amount.

What is Orlistat?

If you want to lose weight, you may have tried tons of weight-loss diet plans or exercise programs that will help you shed off those unwanted pounds. You will also be checking on weight-loss pills that will give quick results, right?

Some studies showed that when combined with dieting, Orlistat becomes more effective in losing weight. This drug for weight loss is recommended for adults ages 18 and above. When taking Orlistat, you must follow a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet.

Orlistat: How Does it Work?

Your body’s absorption of fats is blocked by Orlistat. This means that your body will not absorb the fats from the food you eat if you are taking this medicine. You retain the carbohydrates and proteins while the fats are passed through your system unused. In other words, you do not gain calories from fat.  

How Do You Take Orlistat?

Orlistat is in the form of a capsule and is taken orally after every meal. If you have 3 meals in a day, that means you take Orlistat three times a day. If you have two meals, then you take it twice a day, after each meal. The reason for this is the fact that Orlistat works when you take it after consuming food. The typical dosage is one 120mg capsule up to an hour after a meal.

Orlistat: How Much Weight You Can Lose

With a recommended diet plan, taking Orlistat can help you lose weight of about 1 to 2 pounds every week. If you are losing 2 pounds when you go on diet, taking Alli® – Orlistat’s over-the-counter version, will help you lose an extra pound. Clinical studies have shown that for the first 6 months of using Orlistat, many people had lost an estimated 5 to 10 pounds.

Orlistat works by limiting your body from absorbing fat that is in your meal. This weight-loss medicine is also used as extra help in lowering the risk of getting back the weight you have already lost. What’s important to note is that this medicine will work effectively with a low-calorie diet. Also, Orlistat is only for the use of adults.

Orlistat and Xenical

Orlistat is a generic name and Xenical is the brand name for this weight loss drug. Unlike Alli®, Xenical cannot be purchased over the counter. Xenical is a prescription drug but with the same effects as the over-the-counter version. Both Xenical and Orlistat will help you lose weight by blocking the fat you have in your food from being absorbed in your digestive tract.

If you have become overweight because of hypothyroidism, Orlistat and Xenical will not be of any help to lose weight.

Xenical will be most effective when you take it after having a reduced-calorie diet that contains fats. These fats will not be absorbed in the body because Xenical will block them.

Is Orlistat Effective?

Some clinical studies have shown that when used correctly, Orlistat can help people achieve 50% more weight loss than just by dieting. In these studies, the results were evident quite quickly. Within 24 to 48 hours of taking Orlistat, people observed fat being excreted from their bodies.

Orlistat is recommended for those whose Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or higher. If you have risk factors like diabetes, cholesterol, and high blood pressure, a 28 kg/m2 BMI is recommended.

Orlistat and What it Does to Your Body

Your body will lose 50% more body fat if you take Orlistat along with a low-calorie diet. In general, Orlistat will reduce about 30% of the consumed fat in your meal. Hence, recommended diet plans should include vegetables and fruits. It will also help if your protein and carbohydrate intake is equally distributed over three meals in a day.
