Our expert says:
Although sibutramine the active ingredient in Ciplatrim has 2 types of effects:1) Suppression of appetite and 2) Stimulation of the basic metabolic weight, which should both contribute to weightloss, esp if you are using a 1500 kcal/day slimming diet and doing intensive exercise, it may not work in some individuals. If this is the case then STOP taking this medication and rather just use your diet and the exercise to lose the 4 kg. I hope you are not overdoing your water intake? It is not a good idea to exceed 2.5 litre of LIQUID a day (this includes any beverage you may drink, such as cold drinks, tea, coffee, milk, etc). Drinking too much liquid can lead to electrolyte imbalances because vital nutrients such as potassium, sodium and magnesium are washed out of the body, which can cause water retention which will make you weigh more even if you have lost fat mass.
