Our expert says:
I am personally not in favour of the use of any slimming pills or products because you will be able to achieve similar results with a balanced slimming diet and daily aerobic exercise. I have not yet read any scientific publications that support the use of fat burners for weightloss. The energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), on this Website can be used as a basic guidelines, but if you suffer from additional problems such as insulin resistance, hypertension, etc, then it is important to consul a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area).
Regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life), is an important component of your slimming regimen so select a form of exercise that you like and try to do 30 min a day. While you are on the ‘Diet & Nutrition’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by also checking out the ‘Weight Loss’ section and exploring the site.
