Phentermine after VSG your thoughts



Recommended Posts

Also, maybe a little less Protein, a little more fat? Excess protein will be converted to glucose (carbs) and can slow you down. Give your body more of its preferred energy source in the way of healthy fats...coconut oil, MCT oil, etc...even if it means adding a couple hundred more calories a day. Can't hurt to try it for a couple weeks and wee what happens! :)

More importantly what are your stats, exercise routine, macros, and how are you measuring tracking your macros?

These are all the first things you should be looking at (except stats which just gives the rest of us perspective)

Exercise 5-7 days a week stay under 50 carbs a day track thru MyFitnessPal. Don’t track macros have tried but it’s confusing

shake it up! Eat some complex carbohydrates, sweet potatoes, quinoa, Brown rice for a few days. It’ll shock your body and you’ll start seeing a boost. Could also be you’re just not eating enough. Check to see how many calories you should be consuming. Here’s a general idea:

Show me 4 days of your current diet. :)

Phentermine can cause primary pulmonary hypertension among other dreaded cardiac related diseases. My dad died of it. It's heartbreaking disease with a one-way outcome. Just sayin'.

Crack is whack.

(OK, just read above)

1. Dump all the Protein drinks/protein bars.

2. Eat REAL food. Protein first 2-3oz meal, veg next with lots of leafy veg, healthy fats a little bit, nuts/seeds (a little bit, obsessively weigh/count these out), low glycemic berries and fruit a little bit.

How many cals do you eat each day? What kind of activity do you do? Damn! That sounds like a fuc*ing lot of exercise for that amount of food! See @jenn1 and @BigViffer and others about this!! They're phenomenal athletes! And should you want to discuss the finer points of channel surfing and couch potatoing, look me up! :D

haha! I was guilty of not reading all the posts. So I said, well I just read above and here are my suggestions:

1. Dump all the Protein drinks/protein bars.

2. Eat REAL food. Protein first 2-3oz meal, veg next with lots of leafy veg, healthy fats a little bit, nuts/seeds (a little bit, obsessively weigh/count these out), low glycemic berries and fruit a little bit.

How many cals do you eat each day?

What kind of activity do you do? Damn! (answered my own question--you said 5-7days/week) That sounds like a fuc*ing lot of exercise for that amount of food! See @jenn1 and @BigViffer and others about this!! They're phenomenal athletes!

I am only 6 weeks post VSG, but prior about a year prior to my surgery I was on a combo of Belviq and Phentermine and I successfully lost 38 pounds in 6 months, however at the 6 month point the combo stopped working and it was at that time that I sought a surgical approach. Truthfully, the Phentermine never really bothered me the way it does other folks. Ultimately it’s your body and your health.

I dont understand how you stay under 50 carbs a day but dont track macros.

Protein x4 + Carbohydrates x4 + Fat x9 = total calories

Im not saying become a nutrition freak by any means, but learning about macros is basically nutrition 101, and imo is more important than everything else in nutrition combined (although having a balanced diet and micro nutrients are important too, I think the macros is far more important)

I’ve tried the whole macros but honestly don’t understand it. It’s confusing to me. I wish I understood it better but it’s Easier for me to just count carbs

Insomnia on Phentermine is real, and lack of sleep (good restful sleep), is bad for weight loss. Change your diet or your exercise routine, and just say NO to drugs.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
