    I have been on Phentermine for 4 days now. I have absolutely NO appetite. I had taken a sample of it from my doctor before he prescribed it to me and it was like the part of the brain that says "you need to eat" disappeared...it was like i had never known what food was...I didnt crave it or think about it and no stomach growling either for 3 days....if I wasnt such a water person I would have probably forgotten to drink as well...I went to the Doctor a few days later and shared with him. He told me to go ahead and take advantage of it and use the time as a fast/cleansing....just drinking lots of clear liquids the first few days if I don't desire food...he said that it wouldnt hurt me not eating for a few days because there is enough fat stored in my body to compensate...( i didnt know if I should laugh or be insulted..i laughed) Sooo tomorrow will be day 5 and I think I will try to eat something....He told me to try an all protein diet of salmon and egg whites and a few green veggies here and there to mix it up and said that it will help the weight come off faster...So tomorrow is fish day...

    Has anyone else lost their appetite like that?
    Also, Does the dry mouth EVER go away? im constantly chewing gum!

    Wow, I am currently having the same issue. I have absolutely no appetite. Looking at food or trying to eat literally makes me feel sick. However, I do drink tons of water and mints (to help with the breathe).

    I would love to hear someone else's take on this.

    I didnt know if it was common or not...if i didnt eat tomorrow i would have a total of about 300 calories since the day i started....i took a few bites of my sons pinapple and a handful of microwave popcorn...but i didnt crave any of it i ate it so that i would not feel sick or anything....but thats all ive eaten so far....i just dont even think of food...Ive spent the last few days cleaning my fathers garage climbing up and down a ladder all day and carrying around heavy power tools and I feel like i have the energy i had when i was 16. I worked in the yard today pulling weeds and mulching for about 5 hours...i did the same yesterday and when i stopped it was only because my hands were sore from pulling so many weeds and i itched from all the thorns that stuck me...i would have kept going and the sun had already went down but i didnt care....i hope the high doesnt end...i feel great and my husband sees a Huge difference in my personality...im nice he says...just like when we were dating hehe

    Funny you should say that there is a there is a part of your brain that tells you that you aren't hungry because that is exactly what phen does. It sends a signal to your brain to tell you that you are not hungry. However it will gradually lighten up and you will start getting growls. We all need to eat to survive and even though your doctor suggested fasting, I wouldn't do it too long because once phen wears off or you go off it, your hunger will be back and so will the weight. You should use this time as an opportunity to teach yourself to eat small amounts every few hours and continue with drinking the water.

    I will eat tomorrow...but yes I know that portions are VERY important....i have small dessert plates that I have been using...less room for food...I am only buying foods that are healthy...that way there is no temptation at home...I just buy a bunch of salmon and put it in the freezer and boil eggs and remove the yolk...i dont care for it much...i drink 4 24oz bottles of water a day...i know that things will slow down soon as I become a bit immune to phen but I wont fall off the wagon...I cant...I'm having a tummy tuck as soon as I reach my goal....So the more skin around my tummy the more excited I get..hubby calls it my trophy...

    You must have been typing the message about your energy and such the same time I was typing. I didn't see your pics in the original message. Your eyes are pretty in the first one, contacts? They look more blue in that one and green in the current? Have you lost that much in four days? Wow, nonetheless, great job!

    HA HA Its almost 4am and I woke up to change my sons diaper and well...I am WIDE awake....so the energy is still going strong from yesterdays pill....

    I started dieting May 19th. I took one pill and then another about 4-5 days later and the effects felt like they lasted for at least 3 days each time. I started on the 37.5 against the docs better judgement but i have had panic attacks in the past and I am used to extreem anxiety ...I only had a problem the first two times taking it...The first time was really bad...I think it was about a 7.5 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 highest) of panic attacks I've ever had in my life. Unfortunately I was driving....Someone was with me...Very noticable when it hit my bloodstream....i laughed i cried and freaked out all at the same time and i knew it was the pill .... about 2.5 hours later the feeling went away but the energy I had was enough to make me crave the stuff! So I took the 2nd pill I had been given (the white tabs with blue specks) and the anxiety was less this time...It was really funny because it was a Sunday morning and I am the worship leader of my church and we finished rehearsal in about 15 min. which normally takes an hour because everyone has to talk and tell of their past week....I hushed it and rushed it...They asked me what in the world did I do before I came to church because I was on Turbo speed...I told them just something from the dr....and smiled....

    On my way, if you don't eat when you start eating again your body will store everything you eat, which means you will gain. Take this time to learn to eat healthy, also you might want to start with half a pill a day. I did that for a month, that way when you build up a resisitence you can go to a whole one. Eat even if you don't feel like it, when I was feeling this way I ate yogurt or fruit, trust me it go away in time.

    I'm going on my 4th week. The phen is still working for me.. it doesnt make me wired but it does take away my desire to graze/snack/overeat.
    I'm doing WW and I've been on points or under the entire time I've been on Phen and sometimes it is hard to hit my points at all.
    Thanks and congrats on your loss

    well, day 4 for me & still no appetite at all. i do agree with everyone that posted that i am surprised your MD said "not to eat, it's ok". you do have to eat something (your blood sugar is going to plummet) you may not feel it, but your internal mechanisms are going to wonder "where's the nutrients"? i force feed myself--salad (with EVOO & vinager), frozen veggies, fresh pears/apples, yogurt, almonds.
    i was super excited too when i 1st took this pill knowing that i had no appetite-i didn't think that was possible! but, it will wear off soon...i'm dreading that day, but you have to prepared & start eating the right foods now.

    Hiya. The first week - I really didn't eat much while I was taking phen and I was WIRED. It was awesome. Nothing really sounded good. I wasnt hungry. The thought of food was nausating. If I did eat something I wanted to eat healthy. This week is a bit different. I am on day 2 this week of the phen and the "wired" feelings are there like last week. I really like that feeling. Plus my stomach is growling and saying "HIYA I am HUNGRY". So I am eating a bit more and very cautious about what I eat.

    Today I made wholewheat pasta with spaghetti sauce with cheese mixed in. This will probably be the only thing that I eat today. Plus a drink at the bar tonight.

    I just starting month two...hardly a appetite, and dry mouth LIKE NO OTHER! I enjoy not eating, it's something that is totally foreign to me..But I do eat, a yogurt w/granola or Slimfast in the AM, a Leasn Cuisine for lunch and a regular dinner (on a dessert plate)...snacks: fruit, nuts or a 100 cal.pack. Great job.

    Onmyway2beauty,

    13lbs in 5 days, when you have already been dieting is a lot of weight. You are starving yourself, which is very bad. Your organs, need fuel to run, continuing to push yourself physically the way you have described and not eating any food, is going to land you in a hospital if you are not careful...

    We all want to get our weight off quickly, but don't risk your health in the process.
    Many have said, this is a lifestyle change. We have to learn to eat healthy and correct portions.

    Just be careful, with the continued not eating....
    You may loose more than what you bargained for!

    Laurie

    i agree with MOMMY2CODY i had NO APPITITE AT ALL ... AND I FOUND MYSELF BUSY AND NOT EVEN REMEMBERING TO EAT ... BUT I KNOW THAT ITS LIGHTEND UP A LITTLE SINCE IM IN MY 6TH WEEK OR SO OF TAKING PHEN

    YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOUR SELF EAT EVEN IF YOU DONT WANT TO AND THINK YOUR NOT HUNGRY ... I ALWAYS CARRIED AN APPLE OR ORANGE IN MY PURSE AND WHEN I AM CONSTANTLY ON THE GO OR GETTING INTO MY PURSE FOR SOMETHING I SEE IT AND JUST REMEMBER THAT I HAVE IT IN THERE AND TRY TO EAT IT WHEN I HAVE THE TIME ... IT HELPS KEEP SOMETHING IN MY STOMACH AND KEEPS ME FROM NOT EATING AT ALL... WHICH I KNOW THAT IT ISNT SAFE

    TRY THE FRUIT OR THE YOGURT IDEA IF YOU WANT ... IT REALLY DOES HELP AND BE SIRE TO KEEP DRINKING LOTS OF WATER
