Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight, or to prevent and treat diseases, such as diabetes. A restricted diet is often used by those who are overweight or obese, sometimes in combination with physical exercise, to reduce body weight. Some people follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight and improve health. Diets to promote weight loss...

Contrave - restarting and side effects

I've been taking Contrave for about 2 1/2 months. During week 6 or so I was hospitalized with a severe UTI and kidney infection (4 days). The hospital wouldn't give me Contrave during my stay but I resumed when I got home by taking 1 pill a day for a week, then back to the normal doesage of 4/day. I am not noticing any benefits from the Contrave now. 1. I'm wondering if the UTI was a side effect of the Contrave (it's listed as a possible side effect) and 2. Why am I not having any of the benefits? How do I get back to losing? ## Hello Kim, Sorry to hear about your severe UTI but I'm glad to hear that you're doing better now. I have been browsing the Contrave official website for a few minutes and I noticed that I don't see UTI listed as a potential side effec...

light and dark green capsule SA imprint

My friend received some capsules that are a light green on one side and dark green on the other side. SA is printed on both sides. There is a powder inside it. She was told they are phentermine but we cannot identify it anywhere. Has anyone seen these pills, and know what they really are? ## Hi Abbi, Did your friend acquire these pills from a licensed pharmacy (through a valid prescription) or were these obtained through some other means? I only ask because phentermine is something that may be increasingly counterfeited due to high demand for effective weight loss medications. But if it was filled at a real pharmacy and the pharmacist told her it was phentermine (she should also have a prescription bottle with a label on it saying what it is) then there's really no reason to questio...

Fruta Bio

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...

Is it worth it to continue?

I have been taking this pill now for 2 weeks. I lost the 3 lbs the 1st week. Since then I have gained like 6lbs. However, I can tell that it's curbing my appetite, but no more weight loss. I'm trying to decide if I continue. I'm totally sleep deprived and constipated to the max degree...Is it worth it to continue? ## Hello Meme, I would like to help you but I need some information to go off of. What medication are you taking and was it prescribed to you? Just some information that may help you. Eating less food does not necessarily mean that you will lose weight. The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you are consuming in a day, so no matter how low your intake is you could theoretically still gain weight if you were to burn less energy. If you don't f...

Plateau after losing 38 lbs

I've been on it since last July and have lost 38 lbs, but I hit a plateau about a month ago. I am trying to limit calories and walking 3 miles a day. I just seem to be getting very hungry in the evening again. Am I immune to the contrave now? It is costing me $60 dollars a month now. My insurance doesn't pay for it. ## Hello, Cheryl! How are you? Has there been any change? You're not likely resistant to it, already, most people taking it have reported hitting a plateau period for anywhere from a few weeks to a month, before it started working for them, again. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The same thing is happening to me it's coming up on a ye...

I found a small square bright blue pill

It has OP or DP printed on both sides. It was found in an addicts belongings. I cannot find it in any searches. I would appreciate help. ## Dragon Pharma Clenbuterol HCL 40mcg, this is powerful weight loss, has anti asthma effect, FDA prohibits its prescription to humans (made in China) ## Hello Sally, From what I found it seems ERdoc is correct. This pill seems to not be legal in the United States and as such I was not able to find any websites that I would consider "trustworth" or "credible". All of the websites that I found were most likely willing to sell illegal substances and as such I will not be linking them in my post. These websites do claim that these pills are a powerful weight loss supplement. This pill is reportedly manufactured in China and does not disclo...

Contrave, appetite control

I want to know about whether or not people experience appetite control? Everyone just keeps saying they lost a couple of pounds or they didn't. But I want to know did you have a decreased appetite? Did you see that piece of cake sitting there and able to say no thanks or just grab it and dig in... Did it help you feel less cravings or not? ## According to, "Naltrexone works by decreasing the craving for alcohol and blocking the effects of opiate medications and opioid street drugs" - "Bupropion works by increasing certain types of activity in the brain"... These are the two active ingredients present in Contrave. The drug monographs do not give any consideration to the idea of appetite control. However, my opinion is, one's own unique level of wil...
