I'm taking medication, will I lose weight with Slimming World?

Last Updated: Jun 03, 2016 06:28PM BST
Slimming World have many members who are losing weight very successfully whilst taking all sorts of different medication, including anti-depressants, HRT, Thyroxin, Tamoxifen and the contraceptive pill.

However, we are aware that some anti-depressants are reported to improve the appetite, and some members on Tamoxifen may see a weight gain.

The great news is that with Slimming World's Food Optimising system, there is always plenty of food to eat to satisfy the appetite – you never need run out food – and still lose weight. We do have many members who find they can easily satisfy their increased appetite while taking medication and still lose weight successfully over time.

We always remind members that the worst thing they can do is think that there is no point in continuing to follow Food Optimising 100% while on a medication – as this is when they will gain weight.
