Our expert says:
I am totally opposed to the use of over-the-counter slimming pills and so-called 'fat burning' tablets, including herbal ones that are advertised as "safe and natural", because they usually contain harmful compounds that can cause negative side-effects, addiction, diarrhoea, dehydration, etc and in other cases do not help you lose any weight!
Rather use a sensible, balanced diet and exercise to lose weight safely. The best metabolic stimulant available is still daily aerobic exercise, so start being active and try to do 30 min of aerobic exercise every day (e.g. brisk walking, skipping, swimming, cycling, etc).
