I have read that you shouldn't take Contrave with a high fat meal but I cannot find where there is any explanation as to their idea of "high fat." Is it total fat? Trans fat? Saturated fat? What number constitutes "high?"
Hello tripletb i googled your question and this is the answer I found, I hope this helps.
high-fat diet one which provides more than 30% of energy as fat. Research into effects on performance indicates that 3-5 days on a high-fat diet leads to deterioration of endurance performance when compared to a carbohydrate (CHO)-rich diet. However, when adaptation to the diets is combined with training for a period of 1-4 weeks, a high-fat diet does not attenuate endurance performance compared to a high-CHO diet. When such regimes are continued and compared for longer than 4 weeks, endurance performance is markedly better on the CHO-rich diet. There is no performance benefit in switching to high-CHO after long-term adaptation to high-fat, compared to having a high-CHO diet all along.
I had the same question too. No one seems to have a "magic number". I was told that that med works better when you apply "balance" to your diet, as you are trying to learn healthy habits. Many people (not me) are crazy for keto or other low carb diets. i was told these diets probably wouldn't be the best while on the med. Hope this helps. I have been trying to keep myself at no more that 25-30 grams of fat at day, and a moderate carb level of 50 to 100.
