Stay ‘with it’:
Losing weight and keeping it off will take commitment and perseverance. For best results, use Herbex daily for at least 3 months. To achieve and maintain your goal weight, you must adjust your lifestyle. A kilojoule controlled diet and healthy exercise programme are essential.
The 20-40 year old woman requires a metabolic kick-start. Losing weight at any age is a lifestyle challenge, but research has shown that in the pre-menopausal woman, a slow metabolism is one of the primary causes of weight gain. The 20-40 year old woman also has to face the acute stresses of balancing family and career. She needs to have energy and drive while maintaining her weight and figure. Fertile women in this age group tend to have high oestrogen levels resulting in water retention. Poor nutrition and irregular eating patterns lead to periods of over- and undereating, resulting in a feast and famine syndrome which negatively affects weight maintenance.
It is not recommended that pregnant women take any form of slimming product. Breastfeeding women should consult their health professional. Do not use in conjunction with any blood thinning medication. Keep out of reach of children.
