9 Ways to Burn Extra Fat on Phentermine

As we get older our metabolic rate naturally slows, which translates into an average weight gain of at least 1-2 pounds each year – even if nothing else changes. Thankfully, weight loss medications like phentermine can help reverse that trend, but these pills undoubtedly work best when combined with diet and exercise that naturally boost metabolic rate.

Here, are nine easy ways to burn extra fat on phentermine:

1. Get Moving

Do 5 minutes of quick, whole-body exercise first thing in the morning.

After several hours of much-needed sleep, your metabolic thermostat is waiting for signals to start up. Try a few squats, lunges, crunches or jumping jacks to get your heart pumping and help burn extra fat.

2. Eat Breakfast

Eat a healthy breakfast within 1-2 hours of waking up.

Just as exercise cues your metabolism to get going, so does eating breakfast. It gives your body a much needed boost of energy, which establishes the base rate for the day. Plus, research repeatedly shows that people who eat breakfast are leaner than “breakfast skippers”.

3. Pump It Up

Do 2-3 strength training workouts each week to help build and maintain muscle mass. This includes exercises like lifting weights, using resistance bands, climbing stairs or body weight exercises (push-ups, planks, crunches, etc).

Lean muscle burns more calories than fat, so decreased muscle mass is one of the main reasons for a drop in metabolic rate. In fact, women can lose as much as 10 pounds of muscle between the ages of 30 and 50, and rapid weight loss can further accelerate catabolism of lean muscle tissue. More muscle means faster metabolism, which means more fat burning, so it’s crucial for you and your phentermine doctor to monitor both lean muscle mass and weight throughout your weight loss journey.

4. Eat Your Iron

In addition pumping iron, it’s important that you eat it too. The recommended intake for menstruating adult women is 18 milligrams/day.

Without enough iron your body can’t get oxygen to your cells, which in turn slows down your metabolism. So make sure to include adequate amounts of iron-rich foods like lean red meat, chicken, fortified cereal and soy nuts, or take a daily multivitamin/multi-mineral supplement with iron.

5. Add a Supplement

Adding a supplement can help some people burn more fat with phentermine.

Common supplements to take alongside phentermine include: melatonin, capsicum (cayenne pepper), pre-workout, vitamin B12, CLA and 5-HTP. Other users add a natural weight loss supplement, like Phen Caps or 5 Star Fat Burner, to help boost weight loss and fat burning. Still, ALWAYS ask your prescribing doctor before taking any new medication or supplement with phentermine weight loss pills.

6. Take a Walk

Do 5-10 minutes of light activity after eating.

About 15-30 minutes after your healthy snack or meal, take a few minutes to take the dog out for a walk, do some light housework or water your plants. Your body’s metabolic rate increases by 10% after eating in order to process the food you’ve just consumed, and just a few minutes of activity following a meal could double that boost for up to three hours.

7. Include Daily Dairy

Aim for three servings per day of low-fat/nonfat dairy each day.

Recent studies have shown that women who ate three daily servings of dairy lost 60-100% more fat than women who ate less than that. This is because the calcium found in low-fat dairy produces enzymes, which burns extra fat. Taking calcium supplements did not show the same effects, so make sure you get your quota from food sources like milk, yogurt and hard cheeses.

8. Up The Intensity

If your workouts aren’t challenging you, up the intensity.

To burn extra fat, you need to step-up the intensity and/or duration of your workouts – especially if you’ve hit a plateau. Elevating your workouts, as able, will both kick-start your metabolism and speed-up weight loss. Keep workouts challenging and fun by mixing-up the activity (try a new class at the gym!), walking on different terrains or upping the intensity/duration of your normal workout.

9. Embrace Protein Power

Have a little protein at every meal to fire-up your metabolism.

Your digestive system uses more energy breaking down protein, so you burn more calories when you eat protein-rich foods like meat, fish, nuts, eggs or dairy. However, eating too much of it can cause strain kidneys, and actually prompt your body to store more fat. So, keep daily protein intake to no more than 20-35% of total calories.

  1. I tried phermine years ago and lost nothing in 2 months well recently I have reached the weight over 200lbs and I am 5’1. Really thinking about giving it another try but worried about spending all that money again on a product that does not work for me. Any suggestions or free trial period would be helpful. I have got to do something and dieting and drinking water is not helping.

    Thanks,
    Rachael

    1. Hey there Rachael, Thanks for the comment 🙂

      Losing weight can definitely be frustrating, especially when what you’re paying for isn’t working for you. The truth is, phentermine is a great weight loss solution, but doesn’t work for everyone. There is a product that is an alternative to phentermine called Phen Caps, we have it listed on our website. It doesn’t actually contain phentermine, however it contains 9 unique ingredients that help to increase energy, suppress appetite and cravings. So far we have had great feedback. Unfortunately there is no free trial, since weight loss supplements need time to work, you can’t depend on 1 month to make a huge difference. Phen Caps may be a good option for you, you can order it online and you don’t need a prescription. You can check out their website here: https://www.phen.com/

      I hope this suggestion helps, if I can do anything else for you, just let me know!

    2. Phentermine prescribed by a doctor & purchased at a drug store is the real product, beware of fake & counterfeit products on line as they do not work.

      I have been taking the “real thing” for 5 days & have lost 5lbs. Don’t give up. See your doctor & give it another try. Also ask your doctor for a prescription discount card which can help with the cost of the drug.

      1. I wish I could say that phentermine is helping me. My doctor prescribed, been on it 3 weeks with no weight loss at all. My appetite is suppressed I do eat some things for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have an awful dry mouth and drink lots of water. I’ve been getting headaches the last 4 days. I was really hoping this would give me a boost. A friend of mine has been on it less than 10 days and lost 7 pounds already. My weight loss and healing of my body has been a 17 year journey without much success.

  2. I tried phentermine several years ago and it worked great. I lost 40lbs over a 6 month time frame. It really worked. Of course I was exercising with it. Fast forward and I am trying it again due to a recent weight gain. My goal is to lose 50-80 lbs being that my current weight is 280 and BMI is 40. I know I can do it and I’m more determined than ever before.

  3. I TOOK PHENTERMINE FOR A MONTH I LOST 13 POUNDS NOW I AM ON MY SECOND MONTH , I EXERCISE FOR ONE HOUR AND A HALF I EAT VERY HEALTHY AND HAVENT LOST NOT 1 POUND DOING THIS SECOND MONTH. DOES THAT MEAN IT STOP WORKING?

  4. While I’m taken phentermine diet pills I only eat once or twice a day now because I don’t have an appetite now really and after the last meal I eat around 5 or 6pm I’ll wait until 7 and I’ll get me a work out in. I’ll do some housework, dance, walk up and down the stairs because I be so dizzy during the day time I don’t exercise.

  5. Everyone body is different, we may have the same thing but some of us phentermine can work with us or against us, I wouldn’t suggest anyone to try it again if it isn’t working for them, ask your phyisican would they be able to introduce you to any other techniques that would help make a difference in your weight lost. People, you have to be consistent and also move around and do something with yourself
