The moment you start on a diet, you want to see results. The results come in various forms – on the scale, within your measurements, and even how your clothes fit. It’s important to see results in one way or another to ensure that you stay motivated to continue on your weight loss journey.

Orlistat has been a popular weight loss drug for years because of its ability to block the absorption of fat. Is orlistat effective for weight loss? Absolutely – though it’s important to know more about when you can see the results.

Types Of Results To Be Looking For

There are all sorts of results that you should be measuring when you start a diet. Don’t focus solely on what the scale says. Often, your body will be working internally to adjust to everything. That doesn’t mean things aren’t working – it may just take a few days or weeks to see the number on the scale change to anything meaningful.

Of course, you do want to pay attention to the scale. Weigh yourself before you start and, then, weigh yourself at least weekly. The number on the scale is important as it impacts your BMI. However, it’s not the only number to look at.

You should also take measurements of your body. In inches, measure your bust, waist, hips, thighs, calves, and arms. Take these measurements every week and keep track. You may find that you’re losing quite a bit of inches overall – and inches are good as it means that your body is shrinking.

Particularly when you’re working out while also improving what you eat, you may see the difference in inches over pounds. Why? You may hear “muscle weighs more than fat.” One pound of anything weighs one pound. However, muscle composition is critical – muscle is denser, so it will take up less space. Make your hand into a fist. One fist is equivalent to one pound of muscle. Three fists is equivalent to one pound of fat. So, clearly, you want to exchange fat for muscle.

Even beyond the scale and the measurements, look for some of the other victories. What size clothing did you start out in? When you find that your jeans are looser or you can button up a blouse without feeling as though it’s going to burst open, those are victories – and they are worth being celebrated.

So, how long will it take to see any kinds of results? The reality is that it will vary.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Some people see results faster than others. It all depends on what you used to eat versus what you’re eating now, how much weight you have to lose, and whether you’re working out or simply modifying your diet.

When you have a lower BMI, it will take longer to see results because you’re not working with as much to lose. Similarly, when you’re in a larger size, it may take a while before you notice anything happening with your clothes simply because you have quite a bit of ground to cover.

3500 calories equal a pound. Depending on how many calories you are cutting from what you normally eat/burn, you may be burning anywhere from 1 to 5 pounds of calories a week.

You’ll notice the results before anyone else because you’re used to looking at yourself and examining yourself. This could take four to six weeks – faster depending on how much help you’re getting with your diet.

Now, if you want others to see your results, you’re likely going to have to drop a size or two, first. Once you’re down at least 20 pounds, people will notice. This could easily be 10 weeks, though, since 2 pounds a week is the average amount of weight loss. However, some people may notice little things – your face looks thinner, you seem happier, or even that you have some new clothes in your repertoire.

The only sure way to see the results is to keep it up week after week until you reach your goal. Weight loss isn’t a sprint – it’s a journey – and your journey may take a year before you get to where you are ready to focus on maintenance. That’s okay. Just focus on results in any form that they’re happening.

How Orlistat Can Achieve Faster Results

Often, you need a bit of help getting results from a diet. Diet and exercise alone aren’t enough. This is when it can be helpful to turn to orlistat. Is orlistat effective for weight loss? Definitely, and it can help produce faster results in order to show you that you’re headed in the right direction.

So, what is Orlistat and how can it help you achieve results?

Orlistat is the generic of Xenical. It’s a lipase inhibitor, which means that some of the fats in the foods you eat will not be absorbed into the intestines. Essentially, as you eat fatty foods, many of those fats will be excreted directly instead of being absorbed by your body. The result is that your body will burn the fat in your body instead of in your diet – and you won’t absorb as many calories as you consume.

When you combine Orlistat with a low-calorie diet and exercise program, it helps you to lose weight faster. It ensures that you see the results that you’re looking for – and that will keep you moving forward to reach your goals.

What The Wayt-Less Diet Can Offer

While it is true that orlistat is effective for weight loss, you could be getting even more help. What if you could lose weight faster while still enjoying some of your favorite foods from time to time? At Nu Image Medical, we offer the Wayt-less diet. We combine three of the leading weight loss medications – Orlistat, low dose naltrexone, and acarbose. The result is that you get the help with weight loss that you need – and results are faster.

You’ll get the help in all of the areas you need it:

  • Blocking the absorption of fat
  • Blocking the absorption of carbs
  • Control of cravings
  • Suppression of appetite
  • A boost in your energy

When you have all of these things working for you, it’s easier to move forward on your diet – and see more results.

Now, some doctors will argue that it’s difficult to maintain weight loss when it comes off fast. This is not always true, especially when you have medical support. The Wayt-less pills help you to keep the weight off by blocking some of the unhealthy components in the foods that you eat. If you decide to have a cheat meal, the fats, sugar, and carbs will be blocked for the most part. It limits the calories you’ll intake from the meal, ensuring that it doesn’t counteract all of the hard work you’ve been doing.

Additionally, you’ll find that being on Wayt-less over time boosts your energy and helps you to lower the inflammation in your body. It will be easier to work out – and that gives you the opportunity to not only burn more calories throughout the day but also to build lean muscle mass. When you have more muscle mass, it drives your metabolism up. This means that you’ll burn more calories even in a resting state.

When you want to be on a diet where you can start to see results faster than a typical diet, Wayt-less is worth exploring. The combination of orlistat with low dose naltrexone and acarbose will deliver the help where you need it the most. Plus, we have certified nutritionists to help you and a full e-book to provide you with recipes and lists of foods that you should be eating.
