Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that you had a miscarriage. You don't mention your weight in kg and height in metres that I can assess how overweight you are, but you may not have gained too much weight if I read how you eat and exercise. I am personally not in favour of the use of any slimming pills or products because they cost a lot of money, contain ingredients that may be harmful and very often don't do the job (it is generally the starvation diets that accompany diet pills that cause the weightloss, not the actual pills). I would, therefore, like to encourage you to lose weight without taking any pills. Rather use a balanced, energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by going back to doing regular exercise at the gym to lose weight in a healthy fashion. Don't stress your body and psychological makeup at this time by using all kinds of products that can have side-effects - you are under enough stress as it is. If you should be depressed because of what has happened do get some professional assistance from a clinical psychologist to help you handle this loss - depression can also cause pronounced weight gain and needs to be treated.
