If I'm not mistaken, phentermine is not only prescribed, but your doctor should be closely monitoring you as well while you're on it. Personally, I'd ask for a referral to a registered dietician, who could guide you toward meeting your nutritional needs while on this drug.
Since you don't track, it's hard to say really what is wearing you out. Not enough calories? Not enough protein? It sounds from what you said that you're not getting very much protein. But without more information, it's really impossible to just guess.
I routinely plan a month's meals at a time-- so even though the closest good grocery store is an hour away, could you plan things out a bit better and make a trip there every couple weeks or something, instead of relying on the closer store that doesn't have what you need?
