Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. Dieting is often used in combination with physical exercise to lose weight, commonly in those who are overweight or obese. Some people, however, follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight. Diets to promote weight loss are generally divided into four categories: low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-calo...

Fruta Bio
110 Replies RSS
It seems that the new replacement is fruta bio. Anyone tried it yet? ## I'm seeing this all over China import sites as well. One product listing states "The capsules and the effect are totally the same as Fruta Planta. The box, instructions, and the inner packages are different." It also states "No record by the FDA" (LOL) Some ingredients listed are: fruit lemon, pectin, balsam pear, radish, fruit, spirulina powder. What I am really curious about is whether or not the Fruta Bio contains Sibutramine, which is what got the Fruta Planta banned by the FDA in the first place. I have not tried it myself, but I am wondering the same thing, if anybody else has tried or compared it to its predecessor? My hunch at this point is S-C-A-M. ## I have been using it for about a mon...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine
167 Replies RSS
the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...

Like to hear from anyone that has taken this med.Thanks :) ## hi jen! I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, then 30.7 (...

Contrave vs Belviq
16 Replies RSS
I was on free 2 weeks of Belviq followed by 1 mo out of pocket Belviq. Lost and felt good with NO side effects at all. Then my doctor said she thought Contrave would be a better choice because it is just as effective, if not more, and cheaper...just 70 dollars a month. But, I have heart racing and feel agitated. I did not experience either with Belviq. I feel like calling my Dr. Back and asking to switch back and suck up the 200 mo. For Belviq. ## Hello, Jewels! How are you? Are you certain that Contrave is the correct name of the medication? Because it is listed by the FDA as containing Naltrexone and Buprenorphine, which is used to treat drug addiction, it is not used for weight loss. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects,...

Contrave and depression
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Contrave for 2 weeks and have lost 11 pounds. I don't want to get out of bed. I feel like blah. I don't even want to do the things I used to enjoy. It takes all I have to do what I have to so I can take care of my kids. I don't want to stop taking it because I'm losing so much weight. Will this feeling go away?? ## Hello, Jennifer! How are you? Yes, it can cause depression in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, nervousness and insomnia. You should inform your doctor, there are other medications that you can take for weight loss and you may need to stop this one. Are you on any other medications?

continued treatment
1 Reply RSS
I've just started taking Contrave (on day 3). Before I continue very far down this road I'm wondering about what happens once I've reached my goal weight with respect to staying on or getting off of contrive? I've not discussed this with my physician. I'm mostly concerned about effects on mental health. Should one expect to stay on this drug for the rest of their life? About 3 years ago I was treated for rather mild depression that was treated with Celexa. I'm presently on 20 mg of Celexa. For the 3 days I've taken it I've felt a bit groggy and have periods of feeling very very sleepy when I don't think I should be. ## Hello, Les! How are you? The feeling groggy and sleepy can be normal side effects of this medication, in some people that take it. As ...

Lannett 0597 Not Working Like Others
2 Replies RSS
I just started taking the 30 mg phentermine, (Lannett 0597) pills and they are not working at all like the phentermine I took on and off from 1999 to 2006. These are making me feel awful, jittery, nervous, upset stomach, not much energy at all and not curbing my appetite like the phentermine pills I used to take. I am not sure what to think. I used to take the white pills with little blue speckles in them and they worked great without any of the above side effects. If anyone can offer an explanation for why these are so different from the others and making me feel this way without the benefits, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, do you think changing to another form might help? thanks ## Our bodies do change with time, so it could be that this medication just doesn't work for you,...
