Does everyone take their phen on an EMPTY stomach? I just heard yesterday that you're supposed to. I've been taking mine with my cereal in the mornings. Maybe that's why I have NOT been feeling much from them. I took it this morning right before my workout. (I'm doing the Biggest Loser DVDs with Jillian Michaels- she kicks my butt!) I'm curious to see how different I feel today after taking it on an empty stomach.

Hey, Yeah you are supposed to I think it makes most people lose more. What you do is take the pill and drink a big glass of water ( you will have a lot of side effects if you don't do that) then wait to eat for 30 min. to and hour. Most people get better results with this method. Hope this helps!!

When I started my phen 3 months ago, dr told me to take mine at 7am and not to eat for 2 hours after taking.

I was also told to take it on an empty stomach but only about 1/2 before I eat. It usually ends up being more like an hour because I take it at home before I commute to work and than eat in the office.

I was told to take mine 2 hours after my first meal. I normally end up taking it in the am on my way to work because some days I don't have an appetitie for breakfast and I start my day at 4:30am!

I set my alarm clock for 5:40 every morning, get up and take it with a big glass of water and then I go back to bed until 6:30. Then eat about 6:40.
