How many calories are you eating a day? My doctor put me on Phentermine a couple of weeks ago and I'm just not hungry. I'm usually averaging between 800 and 1200 calories a day, depending on what I eat for supper. I burn between 2800 and 3100 calories a day, at least at the moment when I'm this heavy. I've lost about 20 pounds in the last few weeks. Is this okay? Has anyone had luck losing weight like this? My doctor doesn't want me to eat more than one serving of carbs a day and one serving of fruit a day. The rest he wants to be lean protein and vegetables. Between the restrictions and the Phentermine, I just can't physically eat any more than I already am. I lift weights, and do cardio every day. I'm trying to lose weight and get in shape fairly quickly because I'm 30 and I've had 3 miscarriages in the past year and a half, and gone through 3 failed fertility treatments. The fertility doctor I'm seeing won't do any more treatments until I get to at least 200lbs. Right now I'm about 234. Any advice would be awesome!

I use calculator.net and find it better than most. Yes, FS is on the high side.

Nope don't eat them-- too many additives not much real food.
