CREWKERNE Pharmacy is offering a weight-loss programme to customers who want to lose the festive season bulge.

Pharmacists can give people the Lipotrim programme and manager Andy McKee said: “This has proved to be an extremely effective way to lose weight for many years and we’re delighted that we can now offer this in the pharmacy.

“It’s certainly not an easy diet but it really works. Our job is to help our customers achieve their target weight and, most importantly, maintain it.”

Andy says the strict programme enables women to lose about a stone a month and men one-a-half-stone.
