Phentermine And Weight Loss Goals

Whether you take phentermine or not, you need to establish weight loss goals. No matter what weight loss system you use, you need a game plan to accomplish your goals.



Make sure you don’t set your goals to high or too low. Be realistic about how much weight you need to lose and in what increments work best for you.

You might want to do some research on the internet to find out what is an appropriate weight range for your gender, height and age group.

This can help you get started. If you are uncertain, talk with your health care provider and see what he or she has to say. While you’re at it, see if they can suggest a reasonable, healthy diet that will assist in your weight loss.​ Although you don’t need to exercise with Phentermine, it is a good idea if you do because it can double your weight loss. It is possible to lose 8 to 10 pounds a month if you take the 37.5 mg dose of Phentermine and have a restricted caloric intake (1,000 to 1,500 calories per day) along with light exercise like walking. Make sure you walk 3 times a week at least 30 minutes each time and if you can try to walk for an hour. Say you lose 10 pounds the first month and your goal is to lose 30 pounds in total. Well, you’re looking at around 3 months time to achieve your weight goal. Not Bad, Simply Not Bad!

​Using this as a weight loss goal, you’ll need to establish your own, set up a daily diary. Each day should list when you took your Phentermine and how much, the meals you will have for the day along with your weight. Plan for a week in advance. Having this information written down is very important. It helps you to stay on track and can tell you were you went wrong so you can make adjustments immediately. Just do it! If you’re not losing as much weight as you want, change you diet by looking at amounts and calories. Make adjustments there and if need be, increase your walking distance or how fast you walk. I mean you can go all the way up to a power walk. Start out with you basic plan and alter it when you need to but keep going. Three months is a relatively short time to lose 30 pounds.

​Once you achieve your goal, you’ll need to think about maintaining your weight. Losing is one thing and maintaining is another but that’s for another time when you get there. Small steps, one step at a time. Don’t lose sight of the bigger picture but concentrate on what you do daily and you will get there. If you have a spouse and children, make sure that they fully support you in your endeavor. See if they will share in your diet and exercise routine.

What To Eat When Taking Phentermine

As an appetite suppressant, Phentermine can help you lose weight. Nevertheless, you should have a diet set up to go with this weight loss supplement.



Combing a sensible diet with this appetite suppressant will help you achieve your goals even faster. The menu is wide open so long as you take in healthy fats, lean protein and low sugar.

I don’t know about you, but breakfast is the most important meal for me. This is what gets me going for the day and sets my pace. You need to get the right nutrients not only to lose weight while you are on Phentermine but be able to maintain your weight when you stop taking it. Remember, breakfast gets you on your way and sets the pace for the rest of the day including metabolism. This will keep you from snacking between breakfast and lunch by stopping the cravings for food when you eat improperly.

Healthy breakfast

There’s a reason why they call breakfast “breakfast”. Your body has been without food for at least 8 hours and usually more unless you eat before you go to bed. So, you see breakfast is breaking the over night fast. Your body and brain are low in sugar and your system is pulling out stores of fats, sugars and protein. It’s now time to replenish the system and get it up to speed so you can do all those things you want to do. Just because you are on phentermine, doesn’t mean you should skip breakfast. Oh No! A healthy breakfast will actually help you to lose more weight.

Have 1 boiled egg per day and every now and then perhaps have two. Cook once and eat for two weeks. Not Bad! To go with, I have a high protein and high fiber whole wheat bread that I toast (1 slice). I put some real organic butter on that. In stead of toast, try some oatmeal. That’s always a good choice. And, to complete the meal, I have a Greek yogurt. Make sure you get the one that has only 7 grams of sugar not 32 grams (Ugh). If you like, you can add some fresh fruit to that. Just buy what is in season. Also, make some green tea.

Green tea helps you to lose some weight as well. If you’re into green smoothies and have the right blender, go for that.

Breakfast Foods to help you Lose Weight With Phentermine

  • Whole fruits
  • Low sugar and high protein yogurt, like Greek yogurt Oatmeal or equivalent cereal
  • Whole wheat bread that is high in protein and fiber but low in sugar
  • Cage-free eggs, they are higher in omega-3s, vitamin E and other vitamins and minerals and they are much lower in cholesterol.
  • Green tea or perhaps whatever tea you prefer ​

Make sure to eat breakfast, remember you are breaking your over-night fast and your body and brain need food to get going. Make sure you have a high-fiber, high-protein breakfast and your phentermine should serve you well.

What To Eat While On Qsymia

When starting a weight loss diet while taking Qsymia, it can be difficult to know where to start. Your health care provider can help you get started with a general outline.



There are many diets out there and there are some you need to stay away from. The first two weeks are crucial so you need to follow a diet very carefully.

The general idea is to maximize foods that are good for weight loss and minimize foods that cause weight gain. This is good because this makes meal planning easy. Basically you’re looking at something similar to an Atkins diet which means high protein, high fiber and low carbohydrate foods. Couldn’t get simpler than that. It’s all about the right food choices.

​Foods that contain a lot of sugar actually increase your appetite, so you want to eliminate those. Just think about a glaze doughnut. It is high in fat and sugar. You eat one and you want another one. Eating a lot of sugar makes you want more sugar. So you need to stay away from high sugar foods. Foods that make you feel full and are satisfying include various protein sources and veggies. Veggies are very important as they are high in fiber and antioxidants and low in sugar. The fiber tends to fill you up and slows down digestion keeping you feeling full longer. You can have some bread but only if it is whole wheat and contains 2 grams of sugar or less per slice. Ideally, you need to stay below 13 grams of sugar per day for the first two weeks. After that point, you can gradually add in complex carb foods slowly. You’ll need to check your weight daily and see where you begin to gain weight. Once you have established that, you’ll know how many carbs you need to cut back to maintain constant weight. It’s a little bit of trial and error and it is different for everyone.

​It’s also important to know that you need to eat to lose weight on Phentermine. Don’t skip meals. Skipping a meal(s) puts your body in starvation mode which causes your body to hold on to weight for survival. Your brain sets you average weight and tries to maintain that at all times. At this point, you’re trying to lose weight so you’re trying to reset your average weight in the brain (hypothalamus) to a lower weight. Skipping meals creates a yo-yo effect which is confusing to your body and brain and no weight loss will occur. Basically, you’re looking at a 500 to 800 Calorie reduction daily. So, you need to take in at least 1200 Calories to 1500 Calories each day to lose weight. And, remember stay away from sugary foods.

General Diet When Taking Qsymia

  • Drink lots of water – this drug tends to create dry mouth so you need to keep yourself well hydrated. This is important for metabolic processes and elimination of waste material as well. Some people experience constipation with Qsymia. Drinking a lot of water helps to avoid this issue. It is recommended that you drink 8 – 8 ounce glasses a day.
  • Protein – very important for every cell in the body and particularly the brain and skeletal muscle. Low protein consumption slows down brain function. Moreover, high protein foods take more to digest, metabolize and use. That means you burn more calories processing protein. If you are exercising and building lean muscle, you need to take in more protein. If you don’t, you’ll start burning protein in your own muscle. You have a wide range of protein sources to mix and match such as fish, lean skinless chicken and turkey, lean beef (8 percent fat or less), eggs (range-free), nuts and low-fat dairy. Try some yogurt and cottage cheese. Make sure the yogurt is low sugar. Some of them have 33 gm of sugar per serving. Look for unflavored yogurt or fruit yogurts with 6-7 gm of sugar. For breakfast you could have a hard boiled egg, 1 slice of whole wheat toast (pat of butter) and one yogurt.
  • Veggies and fiber – veggies contain high concentrations of water, fiber and antioxidants. This is a way of adding volume to your meals without all those calories. You need to stay away from fruits your first two weeks. Fruits contain a lot of sugar some of which is in the form of fructose. Too much fructose runs your metabolism amok. After the two week period you can gradually add fruit. For really powerful antioxidants, choose berries. All kinds of berries such as raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, pineapple (it’s a berry), goose berries, acai, strawberries, cranberries and the list goes on. Their bright colors tell you they are full of antioxidants. Eat the whole fruit and stay away from juice.

If you feel like Qsymia is too much for you, try Obilean supplement and lose the weight just as well as on prescription medicine.

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.
