Two pills twice daily aid weight loss, or one twice daily will help weight maintenance – it’s the fibre in Formoline that’s clinically proven to bind to dietary fats (which are then excreted) and increase a feeling of fullness, thus reducing the calories that your body absorbs.Formoline, £29.95 for 48 tablets, at Healthstuff.co.uk
How about lying down on a treatment couch and getting up again an hour later (after a thorough massage) an inch slimmer around the tummy and thighs? Tatiana, massage therapist at the Neville salon in London, can make this a reality. The combination of lymphatic drainage-based massage - which should force your body to let go of waste and leave you lighter - and deep tissue kneading, including suction with a cup-shaped tool to break down fat deposits and leave your body reshaped, sees best results over a course of treatments, but just one session should leave you slimmer. Hurrah!
