I've been on duramine 30mg for a week today....and I've lost diddly squat! I have been slogging my backside off all week gym 3 days, ride my bike 15km to work all week and extra cardio when I get home.

Diet has been healthy and throwing in protein shakes after intense workouts etc and urinating like a thoroughbred lol.

Just been reading everyone elses experiences of losing 5kg on first week etc and I know im only human and yes it took me 18 months to pile on my 10kg that I need to lose and it is a pantene outook (won't happen overnight. ..but it will happen lol). Working in health I should know better.

Most stubborn 10kg ever! Wouldn't mind 15 though to get me to a solid 60kg :)

The people that lose alot are the ones that have more to lose, thats just the way it works.
Im replying to you because im going through the same thing. And i know how it feels. I only had about 10 to lose. My dr started me on 15mg and i lost only 1kg in my first month. Up to 30mg now and its been over a week and its still the same. I eat great and excercise 5 to 6 days a week. I think it works better if you have more weight to lose. Its expensive and im not sure what my dr is going to do if the 30mg dont work, but there isnt much more i can do. My dr did tell me the 30mg will take a week to kick in. So maybe try to stay positive and dont weigh yourself til the end of the 2nd or 3rd week so that you dont lose motivation. Best of luck.

In my opinion, don't weigh yourself, it will do your head in. Take a full body image (photo) and then in 2 weeks time take another one. You will see slight changes, don't depend on the drug to do all the work for you. By what you are saying, you are exercising, you are going to the gym, remember muscle weighs alot more than fat, so even though you are losing fat you are gaining muscle which means by weighing yourself the scales are now weighing in with more muscle.

The good old way of telling changes is through your clothes, this is what will give you the real deal tell tale sign. Eat 4-6 small meals a day, if you don't feel hungry, please try and eat because the body metabolises better if it is given food on a consistent basis. Healthy food of course :) Also remember at the gym you will need to change your routine around both weights and cardio, the body has an amazing ability to get used to what we do so we need to always suprise it with domething different (it called muscle memory, it knows what to do and just does it without trying) so shock your body every two weeks.

I may just mean to up the intensity of your cardio or even try lighter weights with higher reps or heavier weights with fewer reps. Oh, but the most important thing is, you want to do this, if there is no motivation you're lost the battle, it needs to be a lifestyle not a quikfix. If you have that attitude (and I'm not saying you do, because your here) you will go back to the habits and weight that made you come here in the first place. Rock on say fab, and healthy living. Oh, it is also okay to have a cheat day, what this does it shocks the body and makes it work to process the food which also can be of great benefit.
