Does anyone know of a good appetite supressant?

Recommended Posts

Have you done the insulin testing? I don't know what the test is called but you fast then drink some sugary stuff every two hours while they draw blood and wait for you to "crash." I did that last year but apparently I didn't listen to the doctor much to cut out flour and sugar and subsequently gained 10 lbs in a year.

I don;t have any good advice. I am generally leary of appetite suppressants. Coffee usually works for me if I am trying to stave off hunger...Have you increased your exercise lately? That can make you hungry and you should def eat!!!

 

I feel your pain on the no-carbs thing Rachel. I try (and fail). Sometimes I have the mental will to do it. Other times I simply can't. Good luck!!

I've taken some pills before that suppressed my appetite and made me really thirsty (in turn peeing my brains out and losing 3 lbs in a day). I wish I knew the name bc they were given to me

The only time I did was when I was pregnant. I did some bloodwork in February and my doctor said I was fine. She had me on a prescription weight loss drug - Meridia - but the prescription was SO expensive. ($130 a month) I have also taken phentramine, which works but after a while your body gets immune to it. Actually, I think that is what happens with most stuff anyway.

I know it's not an "on the market" kind of pills.. KWIM? I've been trying to find more myself so once I do, I'll let you know.

Another suggestion that I know works is acupuncture. I know two women that did it for cravings and they lost A LOT of weight.

and thank you! That was taken when I was blonde. My hair changes with the seasons..I have pink in my hair now lol

Yes I know what you mean :) Hmmm...I'll have to see on the accupuncture. I have gotten it in the past for a back injury, but it made the pain worse. I never thought of it for anything else. How cute that you have pink hair! Is it sort of like Jess on Rock of Love?

All I've ever used is water - it works for me

 

Its the boredum at work that makes you hungry,even if you are really busy, I think its your body's way of saying you need to retire and have a life of leisure lol

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
