Our expert says:
I hear what you say and can imagine that you must be getting desperate. I do not approve of the Slender Wonder diet because I do not think that it is based on sound scientific and dietetic principles. It sounds like a fad starvation diet to me and this can disturb your metabolism even further. For your own sake please consult a 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), so that she/he can assess what is going on and help you with a balanced slimming diet which may be based on the principle of the glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. Then I would like to recommend that you do some form of exercise for at least 30 min a day (brisk walking, skipping, jogging, rowing, cycling (stationary bike), or join a good gym or Walk for Life) because aerobic exercise helps with weightloss and stimulates your metabolism. The combination of a balanced low-fat, low-GI diet and daily exercise should help you to lose those 20 kg. It may take time, but at least you won't need to have all kinds of injections and take all kinds of tablets that may not even be helping you to lose weight.
Hang in there and please see a dietitian
