Hi Carol,

If you are trying to lose weight and tone, you should adjust your diet and not look for a supplement to get results. Supplements cannot take the place of a healhty diet. A balanced diet with meals and snacks planned around your training is sufficient to meet your goals. Protein shakes provide excess kilojoules which you may not need if you are trying to lose weight (1g protein provides 17kJ which is the same as 1g of carbohydrate).

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
