Slimming treatment only make water from your body so when you step on the scale and see that you're lighter by 3kg, it's all water and not fats :) slimming pills will give you liver/kidney problems in the long run so I suggest you change your diet n do a little bit of walking as cardio for the start of your weight loss journey.

I've read about newer treatments that target the subdermal adipose tissues via either localized cryogenics or infra-red/lasers, those treatments do not result in water loss. However i hesitate to call them fat loss, but rather more like fat reorganizing, AFAIK they rely on damaging the adipose tissues which leaks the fat they hold into the blood stream. The medical world is out on this because they don't really know where the liberated adipose contents end up and what those lipids floating around in the blood will do to you.

Don't think its worth a possible stroke/heart attack risk.

The odds are that the poster is a local and therefore has a typical local entitlement complex. They except something for doing nothing. :roll:

Just sharing some of the articles I've read regarding said topic. No arguments there for sure, proper diet and exercise does more for the body and mind than just weight management.

Yes i understand where you are coming from. anyway i was not talking about the pills. I was referring to slimming treatments.. I in fact are not in favour of slimming pills because i have a relative who took them once and gave up halfway because there were no visible results. Slimming treatments use high technology machines which are able to break down stubborn fats. and while maintaining a healthier lifestyle accompanied with these treatments, we will see great results.


BULL CRAP. Fools and their money are soon parted! The only thing that is stubborn is the fat person who still thinks there is an easy way out. There isn't. The sooner you learn that, the more chances of actually losing the weight AND keeping it off.



Yes I do agree to a certain extent that some might turn to slimming centre as an easy way out. But there are cases where we really couldn't lose those stubborn fats despite all the effort we've put in - cutting down on food intake, increase the time spent on exercises. So I guess that is why some turn to slimming centres hoping the high tech equipment is able to help us "zap" the fats away!

Could be, but it depends on what the content is. I've heard that fat burner pills like Garcinia, CLA and the like are really effective, but the need to exercise and to have a healthy diet are strongly emphasized to make it work.

Yes I am sure we'll need to make some sacrifices - eating less, allocate more time for exercise, and not solely depend on the pills/slimming procedures to work wonders.

Slimming pills are a no-go for me. simply because i have tried some and my friends have as well. Not effective. the best remedy is the natural way - exercise and right diet.

I havent tried slimming tablets before cos i scared to swallow any pills. But a few years back, i went for slimming treatment at a popular slimming centre that endorses celebrities. After months of hot and cold slim wraps, machines that "electrocute" you with mild waves.. i only lost 1cm.

The slimming therapist blame it on me not disciplined, did not follow their recommended diet.. which consists of tofu, fishball soup etc..

Truth is after following the diet for one week, i dont have energy, got low attention span and keep getting agitated. I load on the carbs after each session and always felt miserable.

Anyway i dont go for such treatments anymore (only facial and massage). It was an emotional rollercoaster for me. It is more important to be happy, dont overeat, and do some exercise to lose weight. I am not sporty so instead of taking bus for short distances, i will walk and climb stairs :)

Yikes, i doubt this is even safe?

I'd stick to exercise and eating clean and regular sauna/ massage. All these fast miracle pills aren't the way to go in my opinion.
