Richard Blais/Alli Luncheon #60DayKickStart

10 Jan

I kindly accepted the invitation to meet Richard Blais at the Andaz when I found out I was going to learn how to eat healthier especially during the holidays when everyone pigs out. (Yes we all do it). I wanted to know how to swap and still have a meal good enough to fill me and my family’s tummies up.

Richard Blais, chef, restaurateur, and winner of Bravo’s “Top Chef All-Stars”, has partnered with alli®, to find high fat ingredients in your holiday favorites and swap them with healthier options that taste just as great.

He has been working with alli® in creating a bevy of menu options that work in tandem with the supplement for better and longer lasting results.

Alli (60 mg orlistat capsules) is the only FDA approved over-the-counter weight loss aid clinically proven to help boost weight loss efforts. alli® is for weight loss in overweight adults,18 years and older when used along with a reduced-calorie and low fat diet.

He prepared a fabulous 3 course meal for all those in attendance. He also talked about his cookbook and his his show “Cook Your Ass Off” that I finally got to see on the HLN network channel 58 on Time Warner Cable. I think if he wasn’t a chef he would make a great comedian because I couldn’t stop laughing. The recipes for the meals he created will be posted below. I can’t wait to try the recipes from the cookbook as well as the Alli cookbook too.

With my diabetes I am really trying to eat more healthy not just for me but for my family as well and this luncheon couldn’t have came at the right time. I also heard about Alli years ago but didn’t know if it was right for me but after speaking to nutritionists and doctors I might give it chance. I have to control my diet and exercise more. Richard lost a lot of weight by taking Alli and eating right.
