Hi Everyone

I am from Jhb, South Africa. I am starting Duromine 15mg tomorrow.

My doctor did not put me on a eating plan/Diet, he just gave me some guidelines. I am 1.62m and weigh 114kg. I need a plan to follow on order to succeed with this. Can anyone share with me their eating plan/Diet that worked for them.

This time I will succeed. Anyone with similar weight to loose?

Hello again!
Here's one of my old replies to one of the girls. I give it to you now, later I can find some of my oldest recepies maybe... hope so:rolleyes:

Here goes:
1. Brunch / Lunch (optional) : 1 banana; 1 apple; water (or green tea).
2. Snack: yogurt 1.5% fat.
3. Dinner: oatmeal (milk, raisins, berries, nuts; choose whatever you like).
4. Brunch / Lunch: 1 orange (banana, apple, mango, any fruit, your choice) and yogurt 1.5% fat.
5. Snack: cottage cheese mixed with fruit and some nuts.
6. Dinner: boiled chicken (breast).

My plan was not to fry anything. Just eating fresh, boiled or stewed food. And counting calories is helpful too. I know it's annoying and uncomfortable at first, but I made a note on my fridge so I shouldn't remember this.) ) (These recipes are only that I remembered of, I should check my other notes, maybe I'll find something else) .
P.S. Since this kind of diet was way to different from what I used to eat before, I needed some "stimulants" for my mood and state. So I was making "energy cocktails": water with lemon and ginger; green tea+lemon (lime) and tsp of honey; hot chocolate is good; green tea+cane sugar+lemon or fresh mint+ vitamin C. Here you go! But if you feel bouncy with the pills, then you probably don't need these drinks. I used to sleep badly, so I needed them) ). Okay, I guess that's it, I wish you a beautiful day and looking forward your posts!

p. p.s. You may find it useful or not. Your choice.
