Hey well done! That's brilliant! Yes your body is probably fatigued from the gym, rest day is good and also necessary! But wow, 3.7kg! good on you!
ive been taking it for 2 months now, did stop for a week due to having surgery, and must admit that my exercise is not what it used to be, i would do over 12 km a day, but im nearly 56, and getting 10000steps in is enough now.April said:@Julie, how is it going? Feeling better? Any progress?
@disgruntled , I am so sorry that you don’t see the immediate effect… how long are you on Duromine already? How much did you put on?
VLCD works well for veeeery obese people, at the very beginning of their journey. I am not sure about your current weight and weight loss goals. Did you count the amount of calories that you were consuming while putting on weight on Duromine? Any exercising?
thank you i might limit the vlcd to the 2 days and see how it goes my health wont let me plank walking is about all i can do now, but i am hoping to work back up to a jog so i at least feel like im doing something that exerts some energyApril said:Yep… you seem to keep to your range of calories… to lose 1 kg per week. Did you try increasing this through healthy foods? You are really active. 10 thousand steps a day is pretty high activity. What if 1000-1100 is not enough for you. Do you walk this amount of steps every day? If not, then try to increase the caloric value of your menu only on days when you walk that much, and better do it through adding proteins.
You see.. like I mentioned earlier VLCD is for people with extreme obesity, and I am not sure that your body will thank you for such serious restrictions… You can try.. and you will surely see a loss, since it’s extreme dieting. What if you consider the idea of having just two VLCD days per week and continuing to your normal caloric value for the rest of days?
I would also advise you to take a good vitamin+mineral complex. Lack of any essential vitamin or mineral is capable of hindering weight loss, as well.
OR, if your health condition allows, consider adding plank exercises to your daily routine. These don’t take more than 4 minutes, yet are effective for toning and ‘turning on’ your muscles.
Fingers crossed for your success. Indeed, wasting so much money for the pills with no result is too disappointing… but don’t give up!
