A verterinarian told me they give B12 injections to animals to gain weight? Why then are B12 injections given to lose weight in humans?
No wt loss w/B12: I can't speak for veterinary medicine as I am not a veterinarian. However, as a family physician, i can assure you that i don't give B12 injections to cause weight loss in humans as there is no such link between the two. In other words, taking B12 whether as a shot or pill will not lead to weight loss. If you're low in b12, you may need B12 pills or shots, but that won't cause weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. ...Read more
