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.
