Dear FatNat
According to my copy of MIMS, Cobalatec injections contain vit B12 and should be perfectly safe. They are used to treat vit B12 deficiencies and I have never heard that taking additional vit B12 will promote weight loss. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
