I have never used diet pills, however I can see your Dr's concern.

They should only be used in the short-term anyway, (and with supervision from a suitably tertiary qualified health professional) while you learn to adjust your diet to a healthy balanced one with the calories at a range that is recommended for you. Has your Dr referred you to a Registered Dietitian?

If not, I would be asking for a referral. In the meantime, weigh all of your food for increased accuracy and enter it all into the Nutrition Tracker. When you go to your appointment take some printouts from the Nutrition Tracker with you. It saves a heap of time and will mean that the Dietitian gets an honest overview of what and how much you eat. They also can see your preferences so they will be able to help you to tweak your nutrition so that you don't feel deprived.

Personally, I have not used diet pills. I know making healthy nutrition and exercising work the best for me. I actually had a doctor who tried to push pills on me and even had the clinic pharmacist call me, which I told him I didn't want. The pills are expensive, not generally covered by insurance, and full of potential side effects.

I am glad your doctor got you off the pills. You can do it without.

Although effective for three months, my doctor took me off the diet pill for fear of addiction. I understand I could easily gain some or all of my weight back. Has anyone else here in this group been thru this also.
