Meal plan for Duromine

Obese people are hard to change eating habits and limit calorie intake. For many people, the fight against overweight and obesity becomes the reason of psychological disorders. These people may develop low self-esteem and even depression.

For a quick weight loss, doctors often prescribe Duromine (Phentermine) weight loss drug. This drug suppresses appetite and helps keeping a low-calorie diet.

Prior to start using Duromine, one should make up a meal plan. This plan has to be based on person’s age, severity of obesity, presence or absence of comorbidities.

Weight Loss Meal Plan For Women On Duromine

Taking Duromine, a patient should refuse or reduce the consumption of fast food, which:

  • Contains lots of fat, glucose and toxins, contributing to weight gain
  • Has insufficient amount of vitamins and microelements that are important for health

The main goal of a low-calorie diet is to make the body destroy fatty cells. Because it is impossible to quickly reduce the body fat percentage for those people, who eat fatty pork, sugary foods, cream, chocolate and other high-calorie products.

Foods that contain the largest amount of calories are: vegetable oil and butter, bacon, sausages, cheese and white flour products. However, during anti-obesity therapy, patients must consume sufficient amount of carbs and proteins.

 

One should necessarily eat many fruit and vegetables (fresh, frozen, dried or canned). Fruit and vegetables contain fiber and almost zero calories. In addition, they are full of vitamins and nutrients that help people to feel healthy and fresh.

If a patient finds it difficult to make up his individual diet plan or any questions appear even after reading these recommendations, he can seek help from a nutritionist.

Hi, been on Duromine for 2 days. Don’t feel hungry at all, just thirsty. I think I will lose weight a lot faster if I don’t eat anything. It’s my main goal – to lose weight, and I don’t want to wait several months to achieve it. How long can a person starve?

This is possibly the stupidest thing I have ever read. You need food to survive. Eat lean meats and vegetables, also nuts and fruit. You will lose weight in a more healthy way and be less prone to putting it back on.

Hey again, Angela. Remember me? I am off Duromine now. Been three months on it and I should admit it was a successful experience! I managed to lose a total of 17 kilos. I lost 7 kilo sin the first month, then 5.5 in the second, and 4.5 in the third month. I was exercising, and the eating habits change did a great job for me. Had to struggle with dry mouth for the first two weeks or so. Then, it got better, or, may be, it happened simply because I got used to drinking enough water. I made myself a drinking schedule. I read that it’s better if you drink often in very small portions instead of having a couple glasses of water in 2 seconds. Now, I don’t even need the reminder, and drink as I should. I also changed the way I eat during the day. I never though I will find enough time during the day to eat 6 times. Yet, it turned out that it’s a lot easier when you actually start doing it the right way. By the way, I love cooking now. It was hard to get off the ready-made meals or semi-cooked foods, but I knew what my aim was. What else… Thank you very much for giving me that first push. Sometimes, a right word at the right moment can save a life. Best wishes, Andy – the healthy, fit and sexy one =)).

Day 5 on Duromine. Felt quite bad the first four days. Tonight was the first night I actually managed to sleep 5 hours without waking up and tossing in bed. Don’t feel nauseous and no headache so far. A good start of the day, I should say (touch wood). Been having a really dry mouth. Drink lots of water and the first two days it wasn’t really helping. Hopefully, gets better today.

You won’t, if you keep eating HUGE meals 5-6 times a day instead of 1. Divide you huge meal into 5-6 portions, and eat it like this. Give your body at least a possibility to digest it all properly.

Hi Clair, I didn’t eat breakfast for over 25 years and as soon as I started eating 5 – 6 small intakes per day the weight feel off me. I went from 118kg to 65kgs. Of course included in that was an exercise program that I built up over time as I lost the weight. I have maintained my loss for nearly 2 years and I am now also a personal trainer. All the best with your weight loss journey ?

Hi Angela. Thanks for a prompt reply. I made a more thorough research over the internet, gave it a good thinking, and I might abandon the idea of vegetarianism. It does require a lot of time and commitment. And I know myself. I won’t be able to do it. Do you have any suggestions or know any tricks to boost the weight loss?

The main trick is to comply with the plan every day, not every other day or every third day. If you start exercising and eating less, do it every day. Best of luck with your weight loss, dude.

Thank you guys for your tips. End of week 2 on Duromine. No hunger at all. Still eat, a toast with an egg or ham, or cheese with vegies on top for breakfast, a steak with boiled or baked potatoes or rice for lunch, and usually stir fry vegies with chicken for dinner. Lost 5 kilos by now. Very happy!

hi. I need an advice. I need to lose just 11 kilos and I am on Duromine for 4 days already. I managed to lose 1.7 kilos. I though, there will be a greater weight loss. However, I am not sure if I am eating properly. I need an advice on what I am doing wrong, because I really don’t want to be on Duromine for more than 1 month. I usually have a cup of decaf coffee in the morning (can have a boiled egg or a toast with it). Lunch – usually some meat/fish with rice and/or salad. Dinner mostly like the lunch.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Angela, hope you can help me. I am planning on starting duromine and working out my eating plan. This is what I have made so far : breakfast:1 cup oats + milk
snack-1 apple
lunch-spinach+ chicken
snack-yoghurt
dinner-chicken +pumpkin
Please also advise on the amounts(measurements) of each serving. I have managed to cut bread out so I am not really keen on having toast for breakfast. Do i really need to eat carbs, if so, can I get them from another source besides breads, pastas or rice etc? Thanks

Thanks for your advice, Angela. I feel a lot better now and I think the weight loss progress actually accelerated a bit. I also increased the water intake. Figured it was insufficient. And the headaches disappeared. I thought I have to endure them till the end of the course. The weight loss for the week is 3.8 kg. I think, it’s a good result. What do you say? Not too little?

Hello Meg. Congratulations on such a great weight loss! It can happen so that your weight will be stable for a couple of days, or even a week, and you will continue losing it further. Many people have to deal with such a phase in weight loss.
Don’t be desperate and simply continue with your weight loss program, or up the exercises a bit. Your body might have gotten used to the load. Best of luck!

After reading all the info and the comments below, I’ve come to the conclusion that while on Duromine, it is best to keep the diet simple and go back to basics. Fruit, veg, lean meats etc. I was following lchf but have determined that this type of eating will not necessarily work with the Duromine. I am 3 days in and also have a cold so I am struggling. I think I may pause the duromine until I feel better.

When I was thinking of a meal while on Duromine, I decided I will simply cut out fast food, alcoholic drinks, coffee, deep-friend and fried food, red meat and foods rich in carbs. I was mostly eating tons of fresh leafy greens, steamed or grilled chicken/fish, steamed and fresh vegetables. So now it’s the end of my first week on Duromine and I lost already 4 kilos, and that’s without much exercising. Though, of course, I know it’s more of a water weight, so will be hitting the gym next week to enhance the results. Hope this helps to anyone who tries to lose weight.

I have been taking this for two weeks 15mg. Have lost 2kgs. I am eating healthy 3 meals a day, about 1000 calories, 2 liters of water and exercising 25-30 minutes brisk walking every day. I did have more energy, however this has slowly diminished. I am not hungry enough to snack anymore but understand the need to eat healthy. I’m 50, 85kgs so about 20kg to loose, all my health checks are fine. Why would I be losing the weight so slowly?

Hi Angela, I have been on Dreaming for 4 weeks now the first week I lost 1.5 kg the second week 3kg and the third 2kg this week I am not sure yet.
I have been eating a healthy plain my dietitian gave me a few years back and I have been on and off it since.
My question is in the first week I only when to the toilet (number 2) once and have struggled with constipation since starting Duromine, never had a problem before, I drink about 1-2,L of water per day. Is this a normal side affect? Apart from that and the dry mouth which I get from another medication as well I am happy with how it is going. I can see the loss but can’t really fell much of a difference in clothes yet or people have not noticed my loss either. The scales say I have lost and can notice a small difference around my back and face but not much. I also feel as tho it may have stopped and as I was unable to get my next box until today I have missed the last to days. Hoping it will kick start again. I do 20 mins of exercise each day as well. Any advice would be great. Thank-you. Em

Hi there
I have just started taking this as per instruction from my doctor. I do not have too much weight to loose however have been struggling with weight loss despite my efforts
My general diet consists of rice oats with a fruit for breakfast, roast veg/salad with a protien for lunch and dinner.
For snacks I have nuts, fruits and veg – maybe a little too many nuts sometimes
I am on day one of this and had no hunger at all and so much energy so I did feel great however only managed to eat 800 calories.
Is it going to have a negative effect on me eating so low while taking this? I am quite tall aswell so guessing I may need more.
However on a 1600 calorie diet without Duromine I was seeing no results !

Hi there, I am on Day 4 of 30mg.
I haven’t yet weighed myself as I wanted to give it a full week before seeing results, but already I feel better. I am starting a structured meal plan tomorrow but for the last 4 days I have wanted to transition my body so I have been fasting 16:8 and eating two meals a day. This has mainly consisted of raw vegetables and a tablespoon of hummus for lunch and maybe a small handful of nuts late afternoon. Dinner has been a protein and vege. I have been drinking absolutely loads of water as I am thirsty. I am normally a 2-3 litre a day person and I am close to 4 – 4.5 litres now. My eyes are super clear from all the water. For the first 2 days I had one decaf coffee each day, but the last 2 days I have had a half strength coffee around 7-8am. The caffeine didn’t seem to effect me. I have been in quite a calorie deficit on these 4 days as I have had so much energy, I have doubled my workouts. My sleep hasn’t been fantastic but I did sleep better last night. I took this morning’s dose at 5am so hopefully that makes even more of a difference. I have no other side effects other than the dry mouth (but that makes drinking extra water easier) and the poor sleep. I am hopeful as my body adjusts the sleep will improve.
My weight is (was) currently at 73 kilos. My goal weight is to return to where my body seems most comfortable around 60-62 kilos. We’ll see how that feels when I get there. I had put the weight on for a range of reasons and had tried my usual approach previously when the weight has crept on, which was a low carb lifestyle combined with fasting. The scales (or clothes) didn’t budge. So, then I tried keto and the scales didn’t budge then either. Previously these diets have worked for me. For some reason my body seems to want to store fat! Maybe too much calorie deficit.. ? Anyway, I usually work out first thing fasted – 3 x 1 hour cardio sessions a week, and 3 x 1 hour strength/weights sessions a week plus walk the dog every day and a hike with hubby most weekends. Over the past 4 days I have added another workout late afternoon or after dinner. I feel really energised. Cross your fingers the scales are kind to me with this help!
