Our expert says:
Seeing that vegies are such excellent foods (low GI, rich in dietary fibre, low in energy and rich in protective nutrients), it is really a problem that you don't eat any! Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet - use fruit instead of vegetables where possible. Combine the diet with regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) to control weight. While you are on the ‘Weight loss' site, read about every aspect of slimming (Diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects, etc) by surfing on this site.
Diet products that contain a variety of compounds such as synephrine can cause many different problems (dependency, palpitations, insomnia, tremors) and those that have a high protein content can damage the kidneys. So it is better not to use these products.
You don't mention if you have an under- or an overactive thyroid? If your thyroid is underactive the dr will prescribe thyroid hormone replacement therapy such as Eltroxin for you.
