What are the B12 shots for loosing weight?

I understand your concerns,

B12 shots are not recommended for losing weight.

The best method is still calorie intake control and increase intake of vegetables and exercise.

Wish you best of luck!

Warm regards.

But why doctors are approved then to do them?
Expert:  Moe Zafarani replied 1 month ago.

be assured, there's no FDA indication for weight loss, here's some info from Mayo clinic verifying what I have told you:
