Me too ... I have never had a weight problem like I am having now. It is absolutely depressing! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one having this problem. I was diagnosed about 4 months ago, and almost immediately after starting the diet I started gaining weight. I have gained about 30 lbs so far. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat or how much I work out ... I just keep gaining weight. It is very frustrating. I started taking Alli when it came out a few weeks ago -- but haven't noticed any results yet. At this point I would do almost anything to get the extra weight off.
Hi. I am taking Alli - started the first day it came out. I have been diagnosed w/celiac and haven't had any trouble with it. I have been gaining weight like crazy since going gluten-free and at this point I am willing to try anything to make the madness stop. My BMI is 27 (which categorizes me as overweight) - according the weight/height chart at my doctor's office I need to lose about 35 lbs. About the side effects ... the literature in the package does say to keep fat grams to 15 in each meal to avoid the side effects. I've done that and not experienced any of the negative side effects. Good luck!
