Fats

Fats are essential to good nutrition but eating too much of it, and especially, eating the wrong type, is bad for our health.

Trans fat, for example, are considered the most harmful type of fats. These are found in food like french fries, cookies, chips and microwaved popcorn. Saturated fats, found in meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, cheese, ice cream, and trans fats increase the risk of developing heart diseases. We also know that overloading on carbohydrates and fats, coupled with lack of physical activity is a leading factor for obesity.

Alli is an FDA-approved over-the-counter version of orlistat, popularly known as Xenical. It is designed to help reduce the body's amount of fat absorption, thereby reducing also the amount of calorie intake. It is effective when taken along with fat-containing meals as it helps block the fatty food from being absorbed directly into the body. Combined with regular and proper diet and exercise, Alli is designed to aid in weight loss.
