    Hi all... So I'm not sure if I'm doing this properly lol this is my 3rd day on 30mg. I'm hoping to lose with duromine together with eating properly and some exercise. Question... is it normal not to want to eat anything at all? It's like overnight I'm looking at food and I have no interest in it. I know I must eat but I have no appetite. I know this is the purpose of taking duromine but complete loss of appetite? I had a futurelife shake and half a slice of pizza the evening only cz my son didn't eat it lol the dry mouth is a blessing as I'm drinking almost 3 litres of water a day... today I only had 2 eggs and spinach. Can someone please explain the total loss of appetite? TIA

    Hi there @Nas ,
    Firstly welcome!. I have similar stats to you and am on the 30mg also, if you want to check mine out I am in my weekly updates I think it's In a thread called my experiences??.. ummm not sure.

    And yes for the first 2 weeks or so I had no appetite at all and had to make myself eat, and when I did it was so much less than usual and i felt fuller quicker.

    It was explained to me that our bodies us like a fire, if there is no fuel then the fire goes out.. which is bad cause the fire is our metabolism and we need to keep burning our fat off, so to stoke the fire and keep it going we need to eat. While we are on the duro and not feeling like food, it's the perfect opportunity to start putting the right sort of food into us and teach us what we really need and not what we just want, or because it tastes good and then we gorge ourselves on it.

    So yes I had to start to teach myself, to have small portions at least 5x a day. Just little bits , I knew it was meal time so I made myself have something light.
    I must warn you that at about the 5 day mark you may get constipated..so beware, the dry mouth settles down and I very rarely get it now. I was like you and drank heaps because of it and now I have to make myself drink again..lol

    So good luck, keep us posted, I weigh myself every friday and post my weekly stats, just so I keep accountable. I like scrolling through the forums also, it's very encouraging.
    All the best,
    Teedee67.

    Hello Nas! Very nice to see one more person, who is willing to change her life! It’s great that water helps you cope with the headaches, so you won’t forget to drink enough water. I am sure that you will be able to review your menu and will find the eating plan that suits you the most.

    Did you begin any exercising?

    Hi thank you for the reply... I really hope that I can get more food (healthy of cz) in as I basically have to force myself to eat. I did some light exercises for 2 days. I will do a bit more today :)

    I appreciate the motivation :)
