You should have an appetite of some sort while on it- your dose may be too high to start. If you find that you aren't eating your minimum amount of calories (1200-1500) a day then you may need to go to a lower dose to start or you are being counter productive as when you go into starvation mode you don't lose anything either. If in the first week you don't get to eating your minimum calories talk to your doctor about decreasing your dose for a while until you feel like your appetite "comes back" and then she can increase it back again. Better to start smaller and go bigger than go big and not have an increase to go to later. If you are already on the lowest dose, then you need to basically optimize your calories and pick higher calorie foods such as eggs and even higher fat/cal dressings (but in small portions)sometimes to get food in without stuffing yourself so when you do get an appetite back going lower cal but not smaller portion is covered. Just tricks I used and still use on days I dont want to eat but need to hit my minimums.
