Our expert says:
I understand your concern. I think you are thinking of something like Orlistat or Reductil - which binds with fat in the gut and excretes it without you absorbing it. However, I don't think you eat a high fat diet, so it will probably not be worth the money. Have you considered doing water aerobics? This will take the stress of your legs and help you to use energy with your upper body. You can also use a upper body cycle that you work with your arms while sitting down - a biokineticist will probably be the best person to contact for alternative exercise programs. Just also check your thyroid function and your fasting insulin levels to exclude an underactive thyroid or insulin resistance.
