Dear dr
Do you have a view on Slender Wonder as a product/programme?

I have been gaining weight since I started on hormone replacement threrapy - according to my GP hrt has no effect.

I am desperately searching for a solution - don't actually want to take tablets and realisze that it would take time, effort dedication to lose the weight but feel diheartened because nothing seem to help.

Dear Desperate
Some women do gain weight when they use hormones (HRT or the pill), while others don't. I am personally not in favour of complicated programmes that cost a lot of money and involve taking tablets or eating unbalanced diets. 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' , ‘The right approach' 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).
Good luck
