Our expert says:
I am not in favour of the use of over-the-counter slimming pills and potions because they usually contain ephedra or synephrine which can have potentially negative and dangerous side-effects (addiction and dependence are among the most serious effects - click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a Search with the term "ephedra" to read more about this slimming pill ingredient). You are already doing the right thing by using a low-fat diet to lose those 4 kg and if you add exercise (30 min a day - for example brisk walking, jogging, skipping, running, cycling or swimming) then you should lose those 4 kg in less than 4 weeks.
