Alli and Orlistat can have transformative effects on the body unlocking a pathway to reaching a healthy weight quickly and safely as long as a specific diet plan is followed.

To help create the ideal Alli and Orlistat diet plan, our experts have put together this definitive guide, citing the latest available medical research to help you get the most out of weight loss treatment.

The fundamental aspects of an effective Alli and Orlistat diet plan

The ideal Alli and Orlistat diet plan is slightly hypocaloric, which means you will need to eat fewer calories than you burn. Taking Alli or Orlistat means the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins is reduced, which is why it is advisable to take multivitamins alongside these treatments to ensure the body receives optimal micronutrient support. Multivitamins such as Centrum Advance can prove to be highly beneficial in this regard.

Another key aspect of Alli and Orlistat diet plans is reducing overall fat intake. This does not mean fat should be completely eliminated from the diet; it is still vital to eat foods containing fat (as dietary fats are essential for cell growth and the protection of organs) but with a watchful eye on how much fat you consume.

Some of the ways you can reduce fat intake include:

  • Choosing lean cuts of meat such as chicken breast over fattier cuts such as chicken thighs or legs
  • Eating more fruits and vegetables as they contain zero fat and are a great source of fibre, which can help with feeling full and preventing snacking
  • Baking, boiling or grilling food instead of frying it in oil, which increases fat intake through the use of the oil (note: be mindful of the amount of oil you douse the food in before baking or grilling)
  • Opting for low-fat or fat-free dairy products, such as fat-free yoghurt or milk

Creating a healthy Alli and Orlistat diet plan

A well-balanced, low-fat diet, combined with weight loss treatments, can help with losing 5% of initial body weight after just 3 months of treatment.

We’ve come up with a few ideas to help you plan delicious and nutritious meals to aid your weight loss journey.


There are a plethora of delicious recipes to consider that combine protein, fibre and carbohydrates to create fantastic breakfast options for those on an Alli or Orlistat diet plan. Consider these quick and simple ideas:

  • Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts – Combining fruit such as raspberries or strawberries with oatmeal results in a nutritious meal packed full of fibre, keeping you full for longer.
  • Spinach and Egg Sweet Potato Toast – A great alternative to eggs benedict, this meal is packed with vitamin C, iron and fibre. Be mindful of the amount of butter or oil utilised to prepare this dish; we recommend using a non-stick pan with minimal oil to prepare the eggs.
  • Toast with a healthy topping – You could top the bread with a berry compote made with berries or strawberries for a delicious sweet breakfast option. Alternatively, top the toast with soft-boiled eggs for a savoury option.
  • Muesli with Pears, Maple Syrup and Cinnamon – Muesli with these toppings makes for a fibre-rich breakfast. You can swap out these fruits with your preferred ones.

Lunch raises your blood sugar levels in the middle of the day, so you can focus for the rest of the afternoon. Without lunch, you may end up gaining more weight as it may result in overeating later in the day.

Eating dinner is just as important as breakfast, especially one that is well-balanced with protein, vegetables and carbohydrates. The key is to eat healthy carbohydrates as carbs are starchy and portion control.

Important food groups to include in an Orlistat diet plan

Whilst taking Alli or Orlistat, it’s important to be aware of the different food groups and what nutrients they contain, so you can formulate a meal plan that incorporates all the nutrients you need.


Carbohydrates can be found in foods such as rice, pasta, bread, potatoes and beans. They are the body’s main source of energy and are needed for the regulation of blood glucose.

Carbohydrates also prevent the breakdown of protein for energy and the degradation of skeletal muscles. It is recommended to get carbohydrates from natural sources, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Refined carbohydrates (such as from sugar, soft drinks or fruit juices) should be avoided because they can cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels, triggering the release of hunger hormones like Ghrelin when the blood sugar level drops again.


Protein can be found in meats, fish, cheese, eggs, tofu and beans. Protein plays as crucial role in building muscle, bone tissue, and cells. It also helps boost metabolism and increases fat burning as well as lowering blood pressure. The combination of these effects can help with maintaining weight loss progress.


Fat is found in various animal and plant products, such as oily fish, nuts and seeds, egg yolks, and avocados. It is used as a source of energy when carbohydrates run out and is needed for the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, and K. Moreover, essential fatty acids are needed for growth development and cell functions.

With that said, a diet rich in fat will increase blood cholesterol levels and can cause you to become overweight. When using Alli or Orlistat, the consumption of fat should be limited.

Fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium and folate. They also contain plenty of dietary fibre, which can help maintain a healthy gut and prevent digestive issues.

Milk and dairy products

Milk and dairy products are some of the most common sources of calcium, which is crucial to maintaining strong bones. Calcium also helps with proper muscle movement and contraction.
