There are numerous pills and solutions available in the market today for weight loss (medicines included).

Some of them are good at reducing appetite, helping people feel full so they reduce their calorie intake.
Some help in reducing the absorption of fats which helps users drastically cut down their calorie intake and some raise the amount of fat burned.
Based on positive scientific reviews, let us now have a look at some of the best men’s weight loss pills and supplements today.
1. Orlistat (Alli)
Orlistat is a pharmaceutical drug and is often sold as an over the counter (OTC) under the name Alli. In prescriptions, it is sold as Xenical.
This works by inhibiting the breakdown of fat in the digestive system. This makes users take a lower number of calories from fat.
According to reliable scientific studies, orlistat can increase weight loss by 6 pounds in comparison to others.
However, this drug has digestive side effects.
Among them are flatulence, loose oily stools, frequent bowel movements that are uncontrollable and others.
It also contributes to a deficiency in fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamins A, D, E & K.
It is often recommended by dieticians for users to follow a low-fat diet when consuming orlistat so its side effects can be minimized.
Also, a low carb diet (without the use of drugs) has been known to be as effective as the combination of a low-fat diet and orlistat.
