If you are..: ...Eating a healthy well balanced diet, and if you are not losing weight, then stop worrying about how slim you are. As a general rule, slim people live longer and have fewer health problems than over weight people. As for the pill you ask about: i've looked at it and i very much doubt the claims they make. You can't "make women curvier and increase men's mass" with the same product. It's nonsense.

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, i would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding.
