 Slimming Supplements of No Use

Two studies presented at the International Congress on Obesity in Stockholm, Sweden, have said that food supplements to help lose weight are of no use.

Over-the-counter slimming supplements are being used in high numbers these days, but the studies said there was no difference between them and placebos.


Sian Porter, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association said the studies showed that it was important to exercise and eat in a healthy manner instead of taking supplements.

"It's important that those who are overweight learn how to manage food and drink intake and re-educate themselves about healthy eating rather than relying on a short fix substitute," she added.

The supplements tried out in the study included cabbage, fibre and plant extracts
