I have been on Phen 30 mg for almost 2 weeks now and I am not hungry at all. I have to totally make myself eat something during the day. When I think about food, I gag. Seriously, I do. LOL! I have my herbalife shake and herbalife tea in the morning and then I take my Phen and I am totally full. I haven't even taken a lunch at work because I am not hungry. I will often make myself have a yogurt just so I keep my energy going. Anyone else having these issues?

No, that's not enough food at all. I know you will not eat as much as you used too, but you still HAVE to eat. that's why they say to make healthy choices, which you are, but you need more. Add some brown rice in there as well. The complex carbs will help with your energy. And eat more veggies. Also, take a multi vitamin!

It is what it is....

That doesn't sound like much in the way of calories and nutrients. Are you tracking your food to see how much you are actually eating?

Yes I am eating and drinking a ton of water. I eat mostly fruits, snack on cheese, and greek yogurt during the day and last night I had a piece of chicken breast and the night before a subway sandwich, but the nights before I would get home and be too tired to make anything. I guess I should work on eating more maybe?

Are you eating? One thing I found while taking Phentermine is that I had to FORCE myself to eat for the first couple of weeks because I was not hungry and that made my energy levels zap. Make sure you are eating more protein than processed carbs and get in your fiber and water.

After about 3 weeks things balanced out and I was eating better and feeling much better.

It is what it is....

It would be a good idea to discuss this with your doctor. But you may also want to look at your habits - are you eating enough? Have you changed your fitness activities? I don't have experience with Phentermine, but since you are experiencing the energy loss after taking it, it would be best to tell your doctor about this and they can be able to offer better advice on what might be happening and how to move forward.

Hi all, so I have reached a plateau in my weight loss and no matter what I did I was not going anywhere with my weight. I went to a doctor who prescribed me 30mg of Phentermine and gave me a B-12 shot as well. I did not start taking the Phentermine until about 2 weeks after I was given the shot. I was told by a lot of people who take Phentermine that they have an incredible amount of energy from taking it, but I feel like I have less energy than before I was taking it. What could be the reason? I have also been going through some stressful stuff in my life, could stress be causing my lethargy? Is there something I can do to get my energy back? I don't even want to work out anymore it has gotten so bad. :(
