Our expert says:
I don't recommend any of the over-the-counter slimming remedies, and some can cause problems when combined with other genine medications.
Depression itself in some people causes increased appetite and weight gain, just as in other people it can cause loss of appetite and weight loss. Thus, remedying the depression can cause regain of lost weight. And some antidepressants could also spark an inceased appetite, too. Winter as such doesn't automatically lead to weight gain, though some may indulge more in warm and fattening foods in cold weather.
I suggest you post a slightly more detailed version of this question to our resident dietician, Dietdoc, for advice on the best way to slim, which should of course also include increased exercise.
