Dear Sunshine
Did you also stop your diet when you stopped your Berocca? If so, this could be the cause of your re-gained weight. It is possible that the vitamins and minerals in the Berocca formulation made you more active and that this was responsible in part for your weight loss. Did you take a formulation that contained chromium (check on the label)? Taking chromium can assist with weight loss in individuals who have problems with their glucose metabolism. I would suggest that you stick to the diet (if it is well balanced and not a starvation diet) and do plenty of exercise to lose those 6 kg again.
