Our expert says:
Thank you for giving me and the other Readers feedback on these diets and injections that are available from pharmacies. I do hope that Jo who asked about them today, will read your contribution. If those injections were vit B12 and not the growth hormone one of my other Readers reported on, then they are basically harmless, but will also not do anything for weightloss. Vit B12 is required for the production of healthy blood and a deficiency can lead to so-called megaloblastic anaemia. But if you don't have a vit B12 deficiency then there is no reason to have the injections! I am so glad to hear that you are now using a low-fat, low-GI diet and plenty of exercise to lose weight. This regimen may be slower, but it is so much healthier and cheaper to boot! Stick to your programme and you will not only lose kg, but cm, and also feel so much better because of the low-GI composition of the diet.
