I would like to lose at least 50lbs.. How good is this pill?? Will this pill halp me with craving sweet stuff.. How fast will I drop the weight?? Any Advice is great!! Thank you
Tenuate may help your cravings. It may make you feel jittery though. 50lbs is probably more than you need to lose however. Losing 20lbs will put you in the normal weight range. Once you are older and having been a mother, very few women maintain the weight they were as a teen. It may be an unrealistic hope and set you up for failure. 20lbs is much more realistic than 50lbs. Once you lose the 20lbs, if you feel you should lose more, then so be it but dont go by a weight on the scale, go by how you feel and how you look in your clothes. Losing 50lbs may make you look too gaunt and not leave you with enough energy to get through your busy day. Remember that medications are meant to be used only short term, it takes changing your lifestyle and permanent eating habits to maintain weight loss. If you dont change your lifestyle, you will end up gaining the weight back and could turn to a viscious cycle of thinking you need diet pills to maintain your weight. You dont want to get hooked on diet pills.
Hi : ) on Thursday 02/09/2012 i went to my Doctors who prescribed me75mg Diethylpropion. My eating habits up until then would be Breakfast:Sausage sandwich Lunch:Sandwich or Pasta Pot. Dinner: Either a take away or some stodgy meal as well as snacking in between. This was all due the shift that I work as well as the 75 minute that I have to commute to take get me to the office.
I started taking these tablet on the Friday was, Breakfast: 1x Banana, Mid Morning Snack: 1x Tangerine. Lunch: 2x Plums. Afternoon Snack: 1x Tangerine . We also had a family occasion that evening, were we were eating out and I had really force myself to have lamb and a dressing over it. That is without a starter and any carb side order.
I am so impressed with this drug already,even in my third day of taking it, I am less consumed about wanting food constantly.
My stats are: 5ft 6inchs/BMI 30/Weight: 186lbs (That was my weight 3 days ago). I now weigh: 183lbs. Good Luck in your weightloss jounery xxx
