Weight loss pill or shock treatment?

So it's no secret that everyone tries to get the quick fix when it comes to losing weight.
One aid that people always turn to is supplements!
Now there is always suspicion in regards to the effectiveness of supplements because so many of them lack that safety blanket of FDA approval.
Many of the pills and powders that lack such approval have been pulled from shelves because they are dangerous or just plain ineffective.

Alli is the ONLY FDA approved supplement and it is taking the health world by storm.
The starter pack comes with 90 weight loss capsules, a carrier for the pills, an online plan, and reference booklets for healthy eating.

The website claims that with Alli, people can expect to lose up to 50% more weight than with diet alone. the science behind it is that the pill supposedly blocks up to 25% of the fat you consume. The first step is committing to a low fat diet because if you don't the side effects can be awful.

If you don't commit to a low fat, low calorie diet you WILL experience:
-Loose bowels
-Anal leakage
-Oily discharges in your urine and feces. The storefront says that "you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza."

when I read that I was absolutely disgusted and could only relate it to shock therapy.
The testimonies, however, are moving but if you wish to venture and use a supplement...RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH!
