Hi, jon! Sorry to disappoint you, but Zyprexa is consider the worst AP for weight gain and the development of diabetes. I gained over 40lbs while on Zyprexa, even though I eat a very healthy, minimum sugar/fat/carb diet and exercise 4x a week. For the sake of my health I felt I had to switch to a different medication. I promptly lost the weight and a little more and I feel better than I have in over a year.
Over 25% of users have reported weight gains of 20 - 50lbs, of course that means 75% don't.
If you're concerned about it, you should probably consult with your doctor about using one of the newer APs - Abilify, Saphris, Latuda, etc.
Good Luck and Best Wishes, WCV
