Question: Is aminosol
good for weight control or is it included in the lipolitic aminoacids
forbidden by the health department norms? I am being injected with 0.1 ml in
my arm, not in any other zones. Am I putting my health in risk?
My diet is planned by a

and nutriologist. They prescribe exercise.
Am I doing the right thing?
Thank you. Armando

Question: I was under
treatment for weight loss with a bariatric doctor for approximately 6 months
and lost 13 Kg. I regained 3 and I lost them again. The diet I was following
was the low carbohydrate. About a month and a half ago I realized that it was
not working because I did not lose weight the Dr. changed the medicine (norex,
proloid 15/60) but I did not lose weight. I became desperate and I drop the
diet and the medication two weeks ago and...
Surprise! I have just
weighed myself and find that I have gone up 5 Kg. I am thoroughly frustrated.
All the efforts I have put into 2 weeks of dieting have been to no avail. I am
ashamed to go to see the doctor. I had an appointment today and did not go. He
had told me that even if I did not lose I would stabilize at the same weight,
but I did not want to because I still had to lose 8 kg. and now it turns out
to be 13 Kg. How frustrating !!, what can I do? Lourdes
Answer: The first thing
that you must do is ask the Dr. what explanation he can give you as far as the
use of these forbidden medications to try to lose weight. What you have is the
logical rebound of these types of medications and diet.
