WHAT THE EX­PERT SAYS

Woman's Own - - BEHIND THE HEADLINES -

Marie Spreck­ley, nu­tri­tion­ist and owner of London Weight Loss Clinic*, says, ‘In the quest to lose weight quickly, di­eters are in­creas­ingly re­sort­ing to buy­ing diet pills online. These “mir­a­cle” pills prom­ise to boost your me­tab­o­lism, turn your body into a fat-burn­ing ma­chine, melt your fat off and shed pounds as fast as pos­si­ble. Online diet pills do not need to pass reg­u­lar safety reg­u­la­tions and can have an ar­ray of side-ef­fects, rang­ing from di­ar­rhoea, un­stop­pable bleed­ing, blurred vi­sion to heart prob­lems. In the end it is im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that a magic pill sim­ply does not ex­ist and weight loss can only be achieved by con­sum­ing less calo­ries than you burn. Re­mem­ber, your life is more im­por­tant – you could end up se­verely dis­abled, wish­ing a few pounds were all you had to worry about.’
