The Telegraph article is about taranabant, another so-called weight-loss drug.
But drugs are not necessary to lose weight when you are overweight or obese. - Nor is dieting, calorie-counting or vigorous exercise. - You will lose weight fast and safely by eating less salt and salty food. - This is because obesity is caused not by overeating but by fluid retention, and fluid retention is made worse by eating salt/sodium.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!vulnerable groups
