Day 5 of a planned 5 days of ‘no solid food’ fasting

Because I’ve been sick, I haven’t had a chance to 🏃🏾‍♂️ run this week, but, I had the best week of weight loss in months (8 pounds in 5 days!). This was really puzzling me until I looked at my over the counter cough medicine as I was about to take it.

I Googled the ingredients and as I suspected it has pseudoephedrine. Basically it affects the body like speed. It is not enough to make you high (when taken as directed), but, the effect on the metabolism is the same; Take speed and you-will-lose-weight.

Anyway, I am fully recovered so no more cough medicine. I will try to run today…

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!
167.0 lb Lost so far: 40.0 lb.    Still to go: 3.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

The drug also goes after the “cold” and suggests rest. Glad you’re feeling better, now go RUN!!!😎😎😎😂😂

Excellent recovery! (I once mistakenly took pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) and chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton) at the same time while I was at work! It wasn't "fen-phen" (fenfluramine/phentermine - the dangerous diet combo found to cause heart issues in the 1990s), but it made me feel really loopy. Never having taken any "street drugs," I have no idea if it was a similar feeling, but it was scary. I'm glad you're okay, Adef!

Take speed and you will wish you were dead— and soon might be.

As long as you have normal blood pressure, pseudoephedrine should affect your metabolism only. I have high blood pressure and I cannot take any over-the-counter medication that contains this. Same for epinephrine.
