Dear Conny
I hope that the other Readers are giving you some feedback on Slender Wonder. I personally am not in favour of the Slender Wonder diet because I do not think that it is based on sound scientific and dietetic principles. It sounds like a fad starvation diet to me. It would be safer and more sensible to spend money on consulting a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), so that she/he can help you with a balanced slimming diet which may be based on the principle of the glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. It is also a good idea to do some form of exercise for at least 30 min a day (brisk walking, skipping, jogging, rowing, cycling (stationary bike), or join a good gym or Walk for Life) because aerobic exercise helps with weightloss and stimulates your metabolism.
The use of HCG or any other hormone injections for slimming purposes in adults is not recommended and can be potentially dangerous. On the other hand the injections may not contribute to weightloss at all.
Take care
