The Federal Association of German Nutritional Medicines, the Association of Dieticians and the Mobilis Association share this view in a joint statement.

Pills and diet shakes are unsuitable for long-term weight loss
The experts point out that the effectiveness of the chosen diet should be proven by scientific studies. In addition, the sale of weight loss products such as shakes or tablets in connection with a diet is dubious. Just last year, the State Examination Office (LUA) in Rhineland-Palatinate warned of dangerous diet pills from China. In the worst case, they could be harmful to health, the LUA explained. The diet miracle drug "Xi You Su" contains the drug sibutramine, which is not approved in the EU, in high concentrations. The Trier-Ehrang customs office therefore secured 645 capsules.

Obesity and obesity promote the development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and fat metabolism disorders. (ag)
