heycan you tell me the names of the supplements and appetite suppresants you take?i work out every day but i struggle with food. it's also not in my financial possibility to see a nutritionist right now.thank you

The first appetite suppressant that I took was tenuate which i had for month. The second month they switched me to bontril. Both of those are prescriptions so you must see a doctor to get them, do you have insurance? the medicine itself isn only 40 dollars for a 1 month supply.

As for the supplements, different makers use different names for them but I'm taking:
a)'body boost' which is an enegry pill (stearic acid, cellulose)
b)'B-factor'; a water pill
c) 'sweet ender' craving control pill (niacin bound chromium supplement)
d) 'probese'; this is pretty much a fiber pill (carboxymethulcellulose)
I take them all in the morning with breakfast except for the probese which I'm supposed to take 15 min before meals and if I get hungry or cravings at night then I take one then also.

You should be able to find them all at a local drug store they just might be under different names. I buy the 4 from the center for $80 for a 1 month supply-they might be cheaper at other places. I would say the probese is probably the important and probably the B-factor because I have a lot of water weight.

First off, im just a well wisher and wish you best in your weight loss program. I have frequented your blog multiple number of times to see your progress! I myself am trying to burn a little extra fat myself. I do taekwondo and a lot of stretching excercises, run, and play a few sports. And frankly, it is making my muscles stronger and burning fat faster than i can realise. I also eat all sorts of food stuff when im hungry, no calorie counting...just weighing in the feel good factor of the foods.

do you think a fiber pill like benefiber or metamucil would have the same effect as the probese that you are taking?

rosey, I think metamucil is a good substitute for the fiber pill! I'm not actually familiar with benefiber; however, in my opinion having to make the drink and then drink it all is more of a hassle than just popping a pill!
