Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear about your disappointing experiences with the Skin Body Renewal Clinic, and the Liposculpture package. The use of HCG injections in otherwise healthy adults can be potentially dangerous as such treatments are only intended for male patients with fertility problems or children who are not growing normally. Our leading medical specialists such as Prof Tessa van der Merwe have warned that HCG treatment is dangerous and will not promote weightloss. That you had to pay R10,220.00 is also most distressing. The irony is that any weightloss you may experience would be caused by the low- or zero-carbohydrate diet they have put your on. These high-protein, high-fat diets do lead to weightloss, but most users tend to regain all the weight they have lost the moment they revert to normal eating. At the end of the day, it is less expensive and dangerous to use a well balanced diet and daily exercise to achieve your goals. For your own sake, I would recommend that you consult a registered 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), to assess your situation and help you with a balanced slimming diet. In addition it is a good idea to join Walk for Life who will help you to gradually become fit and to do regular exercise. Yes, it entails a bit more money, but you are not achieving anything with your present setup and it is potentially harmful to your health.
