    Hi everyone,

    So since i have had my kids and due to some health issues my weight has been creeping up and up and up, despite eating healthy i just cant seem to shift the weight. Finally bit the bullet and thankfully the Doctor was only too happy to prescribe Duromine 30mg. I am excited with a little bit of nervousness hopefully no nasty side effects.

    I am 37, 164cm and currently weigh 91kg, my goal weight is 65kg bring on tomorrow morning :)

    CarlyH,

    Glad to hear you've decided to be proactive about fighting the good fight with weight and beginning your journey. The first couple of days the effects of Duromine will be very obvious but it eases off a bit after a few more days so no stress. If it hits you a little too hard at first, it does get easier as you go! If the effects are ok enough, there are things you can do to make it easier and still take it. #1 tip: WATER IS YOUR FRIEND! You'll never get enough of it. Talk with your Doctor if any of the effects are too harsh and they'll help you with them so rest assured that you CAN achieve your goal.

    Good luck ;)

    Hello HappyMummy! How are your first days on Duromine? What about the side effects? Fingers crossed, these are minimal…

    Hi Rachelle. Did you mange to sleep rest at night? Hot and cold flushes are one of common side effects of Duromine. Hope that these will subside soon.

    UNDER 1000 CALORIES? Are you planning to alternate days? I mean 1000 and the rest 1200? Or the plan is to stick to 1000 all the time? If give a positive answer to the second question, my advice is to think twice… you will most probably not be able to stick to this daily caloric value when you finish the course. Besides, your body might switch to starvation mode quite soon and your weight loss stops. Better stick to 1200-1400 and exercise regularly. Make your body work faster, instead of imprisoning it into constant stress due to malnutrition. Hope your day goes well. Cheers!

    Can agree with April's comment on under 1000 calories. That low of an caloric intake does provide a level of risk and it's unhealthy. I've known people who have fainted and had other health concerns as a result when they've followed extremely low-calorie diets. Next time you speak with your doctor, mention to them your intent to follow such as diet as them may need to factor that into your healthcare plan. Some people do get so focused on the fact that as long as they run at a deficient they'll lose weight what they don't realise is that for too long or too much of a deficient, they'll also lose more than the weight and end up losing the good things your body needs. It is possible to be malnourished while having a good diet at the same time and vice-versa. Your caloric intake should match your body's needs so being more active helps to lose the weight faster but needs more calories without adverse health effects.

    Balancing the two is key
