Our expert says:
The diuretic and laxative herbs in Simply Slim, namely Alisma orientalis and Cassia seed plus Aloe vera (respectively) will have caused pronounced water losses while you were taking the tablets, as mirrored by your 20% hydration level (this is quite a dangerous level by the way!). The increase in weight your hubby has experienced is very probably due to re-uptake of liquid to hydrate his system again to normal levels. It is impossible to predict what long-term effects may occur with the use of Simply Slim because no scientific studies have been done on the product. As regards your mutual weightloss programme, I can only recommend that you add moderate daily exercise to your regimen, such as going for a brisk walk every day for about 30 min. Exercise can speed up your metabolism and promote weightloss. Also check that you are still eating the same number of kJ as during the first two months, because it is easy to slowly start eating a bit more over time.
