What To Eat While Taking Duromine

​Before determining what to eat while taking Duromine with Phentermine HCL, let’s look at what we need to do before we establish a menu. You need to begin thinking about planning your meals.



​For instance, do you want to cook or buy at least some foods already prepared. If you’re working or going to school, cooking can put a crimp in your style. This is time consuming and you have clean up as well. You could cook everything you’ll need for a week in one day (say Sunday) and portion foods out and put some of them in the freezer. This certainly works and also determines what foods you can do this way. Perhaps the next week you get mostly prepared foods from the grocery store such as salads and/or rotisserie chicken which for one person can last all week. Keep in mind that cooking at home can save a fair amount of money so if your food budget is a little on the slim side, stick with cooking at home. Another thing to consider is buying frozen veggies. Many of them come in steam bags. You just put the whole bag in the microwave for 5 minutes and you’re done. These are really good veggies and there is no cleanup and you can have them when ever you want. Whether you decide to cook or buy pre-made, you’ll need to sit down at the beginning of the week and decide what you’re going to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next 7 days. Write this down on a food planner. Food diary planners can be printed out from the internet.

Example Of First Day Meal When On Duromine

  • Morning meal – take Duromine two hours before you have breakfast, or two hours after you have breakfast. Make sure to take a big glass of water with the capsule. If you plan to work out before breakfast, try eating a handful of nuts and half a piece of fruit (banana or apple). For breakfast, consider a boiled or poached egg, one slice whole wheat toast (pat of butter) and a low sugar yogurt. You can have a whole grain cereal instead of toast.
  • Mid-morning snack – even though Duromine is an appetite suppressor, you still might feel like you want a snack in the morning. Eat something that has a lot of fiber and protein that is around 100 Calories. There are a number of health bars that meet this requirement. Make sure you keep some of these on the pantry shelf to take with.
  • Lunch – again make sure you have plenty of fiber and protein. Salads are good for this. A mixture of greens with other veggies and some protein source such as lean chicken or eggs is a good choice. You can have a few whole wheat crackers with this. Don’t forget to keep drinking water. Duromine is known to create dry mouth.
  • Afternoon snack – just a little something to keep your metabolism going. Remember, it is important to eat while on Duromine in order to lose weight. A low cal protein smoothie is a good idea. Go easy on the fruit. Fruit has a lot of sugar in it. You could have a yogurt or cottage cheese or another health bar.
  • Evening meal – Now might be the time to cook and of course it should be low cal. Think about 4 to 6 ounces of salmon, tuna, skinless chicken or lean beef along with steamed veggies is perfect. You can have a small amount of brown/wild rice which you can mix into your steamed veggies if you like.

​For the rest of the week, all you need to do is variation on the above theme. Change your protein source, steam a different veggie and have a small portion of pasta instead of brown or wild rice. If you decide to have a pork chop, then add some sweet potato to that. For breakfast, try your eggs cooked differently. Scramble them, cook them sunny side up or do soft boiled.

What To Eat While On Adipex

Given that there are so many diets available, it is difficult to know where to start when you’re taking Adipex. Even though your appetite will be suppressed, you still need to plan out what you’re going to eat for the week. Make sure to write this down in your food diary.



This should not be used as a casual weight loss solution and you need to be under the supervision of a doctor. Adipex is an appetite suppressant which affects the nervous system that is similar to amphetamines. If you have a BMI of 27 or greater and risk factors for diabetes type-2, high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol, you health care provider may prescribe Adipex to assist in weight loss.

Always remember that you need to eat enough to lose weight. Not eating like skipping meals puts your body/brain in starvation mode. In response to this, your body holds on to its weight for survival. So you must eat! You should bring in about 1,200 calories a day to stay away from starvation mode which will allow you to lose weight at the same time. This varies from individual to individual depending on sex, age, starting weight and height but 1,200 calories is a good place to start. If in doubt, ask your healthcare provider where you need to start.

The first thing you need to do is drink a lot of water at least eight 8 ounce glasses a day to maintain hydration while on Adipex. You can have green tea (cold or hot) if you like but no sugar added. Stay away from sugar.

Foods to Eat While on Adipex

  • Protein – take in lean proteins. Protein takes more energy to digest and use which means you’ll use more calories in processing this food source. Protein takes longer to leave your stomach so you will feel full longer helping you to stop eating because you are full. If you are exercising, you need more protein to help build lean muscle so you need more protein for that. Good sources of protein include lean beef and chicken, fish, low-fat dairy, eggs and nuts. Oily fishes such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and anchovies are not only good sources of protein but omega-3s as well. Omega-3s are important for brain and heart function in particular.
  • Fiber – high fiber foods are very important to maintain intestinal health by cleaning out the gut of debris. Fiber also makes you feel full and this helps you to eat less because you feel satisfied. Although Adipex will suppress your appetite, fiber does one up on this drug helping you eat even less. Sources of fiber include beans, whole grains, brown and wild rice, and veggies.
  • Fruits and veggies – these food sources contain a lot of water, fiber and powerful antioxidants. When starting a diet on Adipex, minimize the fruit you eat because of the sugar content. Just have a couple slices of apple or banana. Take a handful of berries such as blueberries, strawberries or raspberries. Try to concentrate on veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower and squash (zucchini and yellow crook neck). All these veggies can be steamed to keep their nutrients intact.
  • Alkalizing Agents – Alkalizing agents include veggies in particular. They help to keep urinary pH somewhere between 7.5 and 8.0. This helps Adipex stay in your body longer and maintain high appetite suppressant levels as well as high energy states. Beyond veggies other alkalizing foods include ginger, chili pepper, tofu and almonds.

Phentermine Daily Routine

​First off, you should know that you need to take Phentermine at the same time each day. You might want to make a food diary calendar that lists the foods you are eating and at what time.



Include the time you should take Phentermine and leave a box beside it so you can check it off every day. Keep your diary handy where you can see it at all times so you don’t forget to make entries in it throughout the day. Also, importantly, you need to take Phentermine on any empty stomach. You’ll have to figure out when that time occurs for you.

​Now, some people have problems with taking Phentermine on an empty stomach, so they opt to have breakfast first. Usually, they have a light breakfast such as cereal with milk and a decaf coffee. Then they wait 2 hours to take Phentermine. So, if you have a light breakfast at around 9 am, then you can take Phentermine around 10:30 to 11:00 am. This particularly works well for people who have a late dinner, say somewhere around 8 to 9 pm.

Healthy Salad

​It has been suggested that you don’t take Phentermine after 5 pm or so because of its natural stimulating ability, it will keep you awake at night.

​Your meals can vary on a daily basis, but you should take in few calories. Each meal should be around 300 to 400 calories. Make sure to take in lean protein sources, high quality fats and low sugar foods. For example, lean protein sources can come from fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines and anchovies. Not only are these lean protein sources but they are also high in healthy fats such as omega-3s. Salads are good to go with lean protein sources but keep them simple. Some Romaine lettuce is always nice with a couple of cherry tomatoes.

You can have some carbs but limit your choices to brown/wild rice and whole grain bread. Sweet potatoes are excellent if kept in small portions. Plan your meals out for a week at a time and write them in your food diary.

Perhaps a few green or black olives. Keep the dressing simple by using organic olive oil and balsamic vinegar. These are good for you as well.  Remember to make changes to the meals you’ve planned if you altered the content in any way. Taking Phentermine and sticking to your daily menus should help you to achieve your weight loss goals.

Phentermine And Eating Habits

Believe it or not there are over 2 billion people who are overweight and more than half a million people are actually obese. It is known that being overweight and particularly obese is linked to a number of health issues such as heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes type-2, cancer and shorter lifespan.



​It can be quite difficult to lose those extra pounds with diet and exercise alone. An appetite suppressant such Phentermine may be just what you need to get rid of those pounds you don’t want. Along with some exercise and low calorie diet, phentermine can make the difference and bring you to the road of success.

Vegetables Healthy Food

​Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that decreases your cravings for food which causes you to eat less. This lowers your caloric intake on a daily basis which helps you lose weight.

It’s important that you establish a healthy diet to go along with your Phentermine from the very beginning. You should take in somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 calories a day of healthy fats, high fiber foods and lean protein. You should plan your meals for the week and write them down in a food/exercise diary. You should have a line for Phentermine entry in terms of what time you took it and how much. Make sure you enter this everyday because you will forget a few days down the road what you did. As you eat each meal, cross it off of the menu. If you altered the meal in any way, write down what you changed. Oh, your daily diary should have a place where you can record your weight. If you don’t know how to set up a diary, go online and search for food dairy. You can print these out and they are free. You’ll have to modify your meals from time to time as you see you are on schedule with weight loss or you are not. You’re diary will tell you this and makes it easy to make changes.

Atkins Diet

​Now, for some individuals taking phentermine, their appetite is really suppressed and they find it difficult to eat much at all. For these individuals, they might need to cut back on their Phentermine dosage.

You see, it is extremely important that you eat regularly when taking Phentermine. Why? If you go without food for a day or more, you’re body/brain thinks it is in starvation. This is a survival mechanism handed down through evolution. Your system will try to hold on to all of its energy stores and essentially your metabolism comes to a crawl trying to maintain existence. At this point, you will be fatigued, confused and won’t be losing weight. On the average, you need to take in round 1,200 calories each day (a little more or less depending on your metabolism). This is very important.

​So, for Phentermine to work, you need to take in food everyday. The amount at first will be trial and error because everyone is different. Some of you will be good with 1,000 calories per day and others may need 1,600 calories. Start with 1,200 calories and see how that goes.

Phentermine And Atkins Diet

​There are so many diets out there. Some new and some very old. But without a doubt a relatively new diet, Atkins Diet, has become very popular, not only among athletes but the average person as well.



Atkins Diet is a known fast weight loss program that gets results. It is a low carbohydrate, high protein diet. Some complex carbs are allowed here but sugar isn’t. The basic diet cuts your sugar down to no more than 13 grams a day. What this does is puts you into ketosis. Since you take in very little sugar, you body burns what sugar it has available. When it runs out of that, it burns fat. Great, and it does (I’ve done it).

Using fat as an energy source generates ketones which get filtered out in the kidney and pass out by way of urine. You can measure this process with ketone strips. You can buy those at the pharmacy.

When urinating, you place the ketone strip in the urine flow and if you are producing ketones, it will turn color (not unlike Litmus paper and pH). That tells you that your diet is working. If you follow this diet correctly (stay under 13 grams of sugar per day), you can lose 7 pounds in one week. By the second week, you will have lost in total, 14 to 15 pounds. For real! Now imagine coupling Atkins Diet with Phentermine. Seriously! Well, that’s what a number of Atkins Dieters wanted to do. Keep in mind, you can eat all you want on Atkins diet so long as it doesn’t have sugar in it. This sounds great, but like any diet there are set backs. ​​There are few foods that don’t contain sugar and some contain a lot so the diet can get boring with a limited food repertoire. Consuming a lot of meat can be hard on the kidneys but after a while your taste for meat may wane simply because you’ve had too much and you begin craving foods that are high in sugar/carbohydrates. So, what to do?

Why ketone strips are useless

Stay on Atkins Diet and take phentermine. Phentermine will reduce your cravings for all foods including carbs and keep you on track with Atkins. A number of people use this combination and have reported success. They were able to stick with Atkins longer and continue losing a lot of weight in a short piece of time.

So, if you want to lose weight fast and do it safely without starving yourself and experiencing hunger pains, take phentermine (an appetite suppressor) and bring in Atkins diet (low carbohydrate diet) and mix it up. Atkins diet works well but has the problem of a limited food repertoire which can make it difficult to stay away from some high sugar foods. As soon as you take in the sugars, the diet is done. Phentermine may help you stay with Atkins longer.
