Does anyone know of a good appetite supressant?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a good over the counter appetite supressant?

 

I swear - I could eat all day! I dont' know what is wrong with me. I am hungry all the time! I don't know if it is my nerves, PMS or what!

 

But I need some serious help before I have my jaw wired shut!!

Celina- I actually just had an appointment with my doctor and went through a ton of blood work. One of the meds he put me on was Bontril (or phendimentrazine). It's a short term appetite suppressant- which I really needed to help kick start my lifestyle change. I've been on it a week and I have noticed it had really helped to control my hunger. You may want to see your doctor and go through some of the same stuff I did.

 

Apparently, I'm "insulin resistant" as well as hypoglycemic. I'm trying not to eat ANY flour products as well as potatoes. He told me to eat only 15mg of protein per meal. Essentially, a lot of fruits and veggies. :) I've been pretty successful all week and I hope to continue down the right path.

oh man, WAY before i ever needed it i used to take dexatrim. it worked ok, but not fantastic. i've always been an eater, but its just the last 6 years it's started, uh, sticking to my ribs? hahaha sad.gif

 

but also drinking lemon water has helped me the last week, i just keep some with me all the time, and when i'm hungry i have a sip instead.

 

btw, i keep meaning to ask you what you do at DEN? my mom was just there and i told her to look for you, but i felt bad i couldnt tell her where to find you :)

A good one which is healthy and safe for you is PGX daily. It helps to reduce cravings and also makes you feel more full so you eat less. It is also really good for diabatics b/c it lowers the glycemic index of foods, which also helps with weight loss, especially in the mid section

My doctor just told me some diet pills that work in a healthy way. I of course can't remember the names of them. I will ask my mom to remember for me. :)

hmmmm, i wonder if this would work for me too. i always want to eat. everything always sounds good and i've always got cravings. i was so proud of myself last night when doug offered "i'll buy/you fly" ice cream sundaes, and i said NO!

uggggh, that is so hard, but i know you can do it! my aunt is hypoglycemic too, and she always has to eat lots of small meals, and she keep little packs of peanuts in her purse in case she needs to fuel up in between.

Thanks Abbie. I bawled my eyes out for about half a day though. God how pathetic is that. It's dooms day when a dr tells you no more bread, sugar, potatoes. LOL

 

Steve looked at me like I was psycho but I think the gets it now becuase he's been eating like me for the past week. LOL He just gets to have more chicken than I do.

I don't know any healthy pills but i'm interested if anyone else knew any.

 

Do you drink a lot of water? I know if you don't drink a lot of water your body will think your hungry when your really just thirsty. I saw that somewhere on here.

Yeah - we went through this already. She said I was fine. (Isn't that bad when you find out your fine, but at the same time are disappointed that nothing is wrong with you)?? I have been pretty good about cutting the carbs. You can do it Rachel - you are right it is a lifestyle change!

Yes - I am a water chugger! I've been doing that lately too. I work for the Fire Department at DEN. I am the Executive Assistant to the Airports Fire Chief. If you are ever in town let me know. Just dial my extension on a white courtesy phone and I can go meet you!!

Where do you get PGX daily? I think I need to read more about glycemic indexes. Rachel mentioned it too. I definitely could do some reducing in the midsection for sure!!!
