Dear Libbi
Chromium in these forms does assist with weight loss if you take 200 microgram a day (not more or less) and combine it with a low-fat, high-fibre diet. If you click on 'Diet & Food' and 'Weight Loss' and 'Slimming Diet' you will find a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet which will help you to lose weight and you can also start doing regular exercise like brisk walking in the fresh air or join a good gym
