Slender C
I am 30 + kg's over weight, have tried to diet, and eat healthier, but i have cravings and am constantly hungry. definitely can't do this on my own. i am a emotional eater, sad, happy, depressed, etc. i'm always eating.

i saw this ad on tv for slender c, a fat absorber and metabolism accelerator, a pharmacist created this product.

I want to know if you think it would work?

Dear Blue
No I don't think this type of product would work for you. If your prime stumbling block to dieting is emotional then I would advise the following: a) join a diet club like Weight Watchers or Weighless because you will get moral support and not feel alone while eating a balanced, low-fat diet b) join Walk for Life to get some exercise plus plenty of moral support c) consult a clinical psychologist to find out why food means so much in your life and how you can learn to cope with less.
Take care
