Dear Anneke
I checked on this product and reckon that while Zalestra may alleviate some of the unpleasant symptoms associated with the menopause (e.g. hot flashes, night sweats, etc) because of its black cohosh and soy extract components, I doubt if it will help you to lose weight. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). Do at least 30 min of exercise a day this will not only help your weightloss, but also prevent osteoporosis.
