One sim I'm playing seemed to suddenly be experiencing weight gain every time I loaded the household.  I had her drink the Insta-Lean potion and noticed after ending the play session that the attached LE file was generated.

@dolldrms1 what aspiration does your Sim have ? Does the same happen if you try another Sim ?

@crinrict She is in the Style Influencer career, stylist branch.

I haven't tried the potion with another sim yet. So far in this save, she is the only sim who has been experiencing what I considered sudden, weird weight gain. Since using the potion seems to take a sim from one extreme, suddenly too heavy, to another extreme, way too thin, I'm a little hesitant to use it again, lol. Will do so, though, to see if LE generates again with different aspiration so I can answer your question.

@dolldrms1 Does she by chance have the fitness aspiration or what is her goal in live ? Has changing it helped any ?

I'm asking cause there seem a few LE's with aspirations around so that could be the issue and not the potion.

My apologies for a delayed response @crinrict   The sim's aspiration is Friend of the Animals but you may be correct in that either the aspiration or career might play a part and it not be the potion itself.

 

I changed saves to where I knew I didn't mind adding another family to play.  I put a heavy Dustin Broke in an apartment so I could also check an apt. to apt. move for inventory transfer but will go post the result in that thread.  When I gave him the Insta-Lean potion no LE was generated.  The game had him in the business career with the Fabulously Wealthy aspiration and I left those as they were.

 

I also realize now that perhaps I should have selected a female sim to retest, rather than a male, since the sim that originally generated the LE was a female.  Sigh, hindsight is always 20-20, lol.  I'll redo as the occasion arises but for now, all I can say for sure is that no LE generated giving that male sim the Insta-Lean potion.  Something caused the LE to generate but exactly what that something is remains a mystery to me at this time.  Guess I should edit the OP to indicate 50% of the time Standard smile  That percentage is hard to guesstimate on a first report unless replicated consistently.

@dolldrms1 There's currently lots of aspirations LEs going round so try if you can trigger it if you give another sim the same aspiration.
