nar you can do it! It's all mental!! Yeah you can feel fucked from not having certain things after you've always had them but just know that the shit feeling won\'t last forever. And it'll be worth it in the long run!
So very true..

@Tracey2 Your metabolism slows when you don't eat. So eat small meals. And consistently snack but make it healthier options. Make fruit the snack between meals and add some more in there.

What would you recomend? Is what im currently eating ok ? Wouldn't eating more mean I would have to burn off more ?

You don't have to eat a lot just more regularly. Maybe a piece of toast, or some egg whites, a smoothie, fruit, dry crackers, some nuts etc. Eating regularly helps to keep your metabolism working all day so it will burn fat on its own. When I had gestational diabetes, they also told us that eating carbs is necessary. Without it your body over compensates. So small amounts, around 20g per serve, can help great too.

Would having extra peice of fruit with breakfast and lunch help?

You still need some form of balanced diet. So some veggie snacks maybe rather than all fruit at least. You don't want to lose the nutrients you need by not eating balanced.

I've been on Duromine for 5 days now with 0 weight loss :( I have been having an apple for breakfast an apple for lunch and a piece of meet with Salad and veg for dinner and drinking lots of water and doing a 30 min power walk..... Why haven't I lost anything? I'm seeing so many success exciting stories of people losing big numbers. I am getting disappointed :confounded:
You are definitely not eating enough to lose weight, Im eating between 1000 to 1200 calories a day and have lost 8kgs in 19 days without doing any excercise. Bump up your food intake (good foods of course) and you should see results :)

maybe download MyFitnessPal! I swear by it. And it will tell you how many calories you have to eat to lose weight. Free app and very easy to use. That's the app I use and it's amazing, you put in your weight and goal weight and it will tell you how many calories to eat in order for you to lose weight :)

Plus once off duromine that diet is definitely not sustainanble and the weight will be all back plus more. Duromine is to really train you to choose the right foods and have smaller portions :)

Is this not enough ? This is what i have been eating for the week every day. 1600 is a bit to much in my opinion. You could even still have a little more.. nothing over 1200-1300 a day

Yes thats a good amount, but not sure why they say 1600?? I put that I wanted to lose 20kgs in 5 months so it gave me 1200 cal to eat. I think it went up because i am more active. Im a chef at a daycare centre and cook for 120 kids each day im constantly never still :)

Reduce your carbs to under 30grams a day and up your fat intake
