Our expert says:
Your dietitian has studied human nutrition, diseases and diets for many years and has more knowledge about the dietary treatment of potential heart disease and overweight which seems to be triggered by severe cravings in your case, than untrained people selling slimming pills and potions. The use of injections of human growth hormone, or just saline (a dummy treatment) has been denounced repeatedly by leading nutrition experts. You can of course disregard what the dietitian has advised you to do and join the injectors at the slimming clinic, but I do think that I would rather go with a sensible approach. You may not lose 20 kg in a week, but you may also learn healthy eating habits for the rest of your life.
At the end of the day it is up to you.

Also click on ''Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. While you are on the Diet site do a Search with 'Myo-Inositol, Infertility, & Metabolic Syndrome' to read the article I wrote about the discovery that “Inofolic” (a combination of myo-inositol & folic acid) can help to reverse metabolic syndrome and obesity.
