What are fat and calorie targets?

Alli Weight Loss Pills should be taken with a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. This is because you only need the amount of calories that relate to your energy expenditure. If you consume more calories than you need, because you live quite a sedentary lifestyle, then those calories that were not used for energy are stored in the body as fat.

When you hear the term ‘calorie target’ this indicates the maximum number of calories you should consume per day. There is no set calorie target that can be suggested to everyone looking to lose weight. Instead, calorie targets are individual and are calculated by your weight, gender and activity levels. No matter what your calorie target, it is not recommended to consume less than 1,200 calories every day.

Many people also believe that while losing weight, they should cut fat completely out of their diets; however you should not stop incorporating fat when taking Alli. Fat is an essential part of a balanced diet and the right amount of fat helps the body to absorb vitamins and perform other essential functions. To successfully lose weight with Alli you should limit your fat intake and create an individual fat target that is determined by your daily calorie target. Your fat target is the maximum number of grams you should eat in each meal or snack. For example, you may target yourself to 15g of fat per meal with a daily calorie target of 1,400.

Why are fat and calorie targets important?

Monitoring the amount of fat you eat within each meal is essential when losing weight with Alli, not just because fat is high in calories, but also because of the way the capsules work within the body. Taking the Alli capsules means that some fat isn’t absorbed, so by staying within your recommended fat target, you can reduce the chances of experiencing diet-related treatment effects as this will reduce the amount of undigested fat being eliminated from the body.
