Our expert says:
I am personally not in favour of diet pills and drops because most of them either contain harsh laxatives or derivatives of epinephrine which has a whole list of negative side-effects, including addiction. Exercise is still the best metabolic stimulant available, but make sure that you are doing aerobic exercises (skipping, running or jogging, cycling or spinning, swimming, aerobic dancing, or brisk walking), not just exercises with weights. The latter are also important and help to firm you up, but you need to do exercises that burn energy to lose weight. In addition it will help to reduce your energy intake by using 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).
