I just started taking phentermine 30mg. My average calorie intake on it is 800 a day. Im not trying to be that drastic but it kills my appetite(which I guess is the point) Im going to the gym 3-5 times a week. Running, eliptical, and twice a week the bodypump weight class. Weight is coming off but I dont want to loose muscle I want to loose fat. How do i know which im loosing. Do I need to force myself to a higher calorie diet. 1000 or 1200? Or will be ok as long as Im working out? Any Advice.
Protein helps build muscle as well as strength training and if your going to the gym you should be doing the strength training as well. Also, you need to make sure your eating every 2 to 3 hours snack on fruit protein shakes after your workout, yogurt, nuts, salads as long as your putting something in your stomach. I'm not always hungry either but just recently my Gym took my weight and of course I lost three pounds but i also lost three pounds of muscle??? so where did it go well It was suggested to me to consume consume consume more protein so that I don't loose muscle which I don't want to do so this is very important especially when your off the pill you want to try to adapt a new way of eating the healthier way. I don't think your gonna eat 800 calories for life? Are you?
I used to work out five days/week and I was told by my trainer to eat some carbs before working out( for energy) and protein shake after, mostly for maintenance. When you are trying to lose weight it is best if you do a protein before and after working out and do more protein, less carbs in general ( to lose weight).
