I never weigh myself and because of my body structure, I had no idea I was over 300 lbs. Imagine how surprised I was when I found out I was 318 lbs smh! I immediately took action and because I am in good health (other than being overweight), my doctor prescribed me the highest dosage of Phen. I started taking Phen on 7/6/16.
The first week I took the medication was amazing. I had energy unlike I've never had. I had absolutely no appetite, which gave me the ability to make smarter food choices because I wasn't hungry. The only side effect was extreme dry mouth (which isn't a bad thing because I craved water). I also began working out 3 days a week up to 2 hours per day. In just the first week I lost 6 lbs! As of today I have lost 26 lbs. I haven't lost as much as I expected in comparison to other reviews , but I'm still very happy with the results.
After the first month of taking phen, I began to lose the initial effects of the medicine (energy and loss of appetite). So I started only taking it during the week and skipping the weekend. This method worked for me. When I take the medication on Monday, I have that boost of energy again. It's still no where near how effective it was in the beginning but I can still feel the difference.
Since I've been on this medication I have been eating around 1600-1700 calories a day and drinking a gallon of water daily. I have not worked out in 2 weeks, but I plan to restart on Monday.
I found out a few days ago that I am Vitamin D deficient and was prescribed Vitamin D2 supplements. Based on my research Vitamin D can aid in weight loss, so hopefully it will enhance the effects of the phen! I will write another review on that combo in a few weeks.
