A safe appetite suppressant
I would like to know if there is anyone that knows of a safe appetite suppressant. My husband doesn't allow me to take pills like Thinz and Eetless because of an addiction i had with them previously.
If there is anyone who can advise me on a safe appetite suppressant that will allow me to lose a few kilo's (+- 4kg)
Thank you!

Dear Tazz
I presume that the Readers are providing all kinds of suggestions, BUT none of the appetite suppressants on the market are safe and all of these products can lead to addiction. You don't want to go that route again, so if you only need to lose 4 kg, then try doing it the healthy way - reduce your fat intake (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet) and increase your energy expenditure by doing regular exercise - join a good gym (a better way of spending your money than on pills and potions that all have negative side-effects) or Walk for Life.
You can do this on your own without needing a chemical crutch!
