In Part I of this article, I reviewed the contribution made by drugs, both thermogenic and anorectic, to the business of weight reduction. All these have one thing in common — they can only be obtained on a doctor's prescription. So the slimmer knows that a medically qualified person has already made an assessment of the drug's ability to help weight reduction and has therefore got some sort of safeguard when using the product. Part II of my article is going to deal with those products available on the open market which claim to help the slimmer in his fight against fatness.
