    is it just a case of asking for them and he will give you them,or do you have to have any tests or anything done

    prob will check you dont have any medical issues that would make taking them dangerous but thats about it oh and make sure your bmi qualifies....

    just mention you seen a lot of people doing well with them and want to try them...

    I was very lucky as I have a great GP, she knows I have struggled with weight issues for a while now and was happy to give it a go, the only stipulation is that I go once a month to be weighed and prescribed more and that I continue to lose weight on them. I've got my next weight in next Monday morning and fingers crossed I shall have done ok, although I have been under calculating muller rice pots as I didn't notice they were 200g and I was calculating for 100g so I have been having 100cal extra a day without realising, so I hope it won't make too much of a difference.Grrrr!
