Phentermine and Reduced Calorie Diet= Fast Weight Loss
Fast weight loss with phentermine may be more desirable than slow weight loss. Most new studies confirm this. It’s a myth that losing weight slowly results in either more weight loss in the long term, or even more permanent weight loss. Most people who drag the weight loss over months and months simply never finish their plan. They get bored and frustrated. From a 2014 study from Australia about fast vs. slow weight loss:
“…among the volunteers who made it to the end of the weight-loss portion of the study, 81% of those on the rapid plan lost at least 12.5% of their body weight. For volunteers on the gradual diet, only 62% achieved the same goal.
The FDA has approved 8 medications for weight loss including: phentermine, diethylproprion, phendimetrazine, Contrave, Belviq, Qsymia, Saxenda and Orilstat. All of these increase weight loss beyond the placebo effect. You should avoid all OTC medications that claim weightloss or use words such as “support” weight loss. Several FDA drugs increase weight loss such as topamax and metformin when added to the phentermine.
Phentermine, Qsymia(contains phentermine and Topamax) and phendimetrazine result in the fastest weight loss. You can review the other weight loss medications.
Fast Weight Loss with Phentermine and Dietary Changes:
There are many techniques for fast weight loss. The newer ones emphasize diets high in protein and low in sugar and rapidly absorbable carbs such as potatoes, rice and pasta. Adding phentermine to your weight loss plan increases weight loss and the ability to maintain it over time.
10 Secrets to Fast Weight Loss

- Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. These are the worst things you can put into your body. They rapidly turn to fat and more importantly, they make you more hungry
- Drink water a half hour before meals. One study showed that drinking water a half hour before meals increased weight loss by 44% over 3 months because of fullness factors.
- Choose weight loss-friendly foods. Certain foods are very useful for losing fat including high protein, low fat foods such as eggs, tuna, and salmon, leafy vegetables, and low glycemic index fruits.
- Eat soluble fiber. Studies show that soluble fibers may reduce fat, especially in the belly area. Fiber supplements like glucomannan can also help
- Drink coffee or tea. If you’re a coffee or a tea drinker, then drink as much as you want as the caffeine in them can boost your metabolism by 3-11%
- Eat your food slowly. Fast eaters gain more weight over time. Eating slowly makes you feel more full and boosts weight-reducing hormones
- Use smaller plates. Studies show that people automatically eat less when they use smaller plates.
- Get a good night’s sleep, every night. Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain, so taking care of your sleep is important ).Phentermine: added in slowly increasing doses helps weight loss.
Weight Loss Medication Increases Speed of Weight Loss
Fast weight loss with phentermine can be healthy and much easier to achieve than attempting to lose weight without any help.. Medications can decrease appetite and cravings as well as increase metabolism. For many people who have more than 50 lbs. to lose, weight loss is very difficult without some help controlling appetite and cravings. Without a way to control their hunger, most dieters ultimately abandon their weight loss programs.
