Gained 50 lbs on this drug and lost 30 lbs so far (over past 5 months) with restricted, healthy 1,200 cal/day diet and lots of walking. I also intermittently did 800 cal/day for 2 weeks. Ate lots of fresh vegetables, tofu and low amount of simple carbs.
I'm not sure that's why I'm asking
Depends on what steps you take to lose it. Waiting it could take many many months, if at all. Taking actin with nutrition, hydration and moderate exercise, a few months.
