Anyone got any weight loss drugs that worked? I'm already dieting and exercising and it's doing nothing.

You aren't dieting right if it's doing nothing. Calories in minus calories out should be negative. There is no way that will not work.


Pop an Adderall a day, and you're not only losing weight, but kicking ass.


Cigarettes and cocaine both work but o would not recommend.

I do use preworkout powder to make sure I have energy in the gym even after a long day or very early in the morning


Track, track, track, and track


@OP, I'm sorry but either you are not tracking correctly or that BMR estimate is wrong. Your body can't filter feed calories out of thin air. If you use more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. It's a fact.


This isn't debatable; if you are gaining weight you are ingesting more calories that you are burning. No mystery to it.


Check out PCOS - messes w blood sugar, weight gain, etc. Had same symptoms and with the right diagnosis and meds quickly resolves.




Black Coffee Green Tea and Apple

Tried some prescription ones a few years ago. Gave me tons of energy (would ride my bike 50 miles and still have WAY too much energy). But I felt like my heart would explode any minute. Then quit them and gained the weight back. Would not recommend. No substitute for the old fashioned way unfortunately.

Phentermine is the main prescription drug. It's the watered down version of Phen Phen that was killing people a few years ago. Takes the weight right iff thi


Thank me later bruh

HIIT! Dieting and life style changes take 31 days or so.

It's been 3 months. I've been on 1500 calories a day with a BMR of 2100. Gained 5 pounds

How many meals a day? Also, protein to fat to carb ratio. Do either LISS or HIIT cardio as well.

Oh and water intake is crucial. Detox teas work too but also lemon juice with Himalayan sea salt in 1/4 water in the AM.

Nope. Nutritionist couldn't explain it neither could doctor. Hence why I'm asking for what prescription drugs work since my docs giving me a bunch of options and I want to know what worked

Male or female? Could be a thyroid issue. Physical lately?

Agree. Could be thyroid. Would say if you're really that regimented it may be hormonal. You should seek out a good doc who can assess hormonal issues. Try doing a Whole30 and start to meditate would be other recos

Moms any advice? My husband will take a paternity leave mid this year to help me out but his company’s (big 4) year end promotion happens when he’s on leave.

Or, asking this question makes him look bad? Con’t


How do you meet new people in the city? Friends are starting to move away, and for the first time I find myself spending a lot of time alone.


In the past month, I have gone through 7 interviews at a start up company, including the CEO, who wanted to talk “as soon as possible”.
Kept mentioning my “impressive resume” & “great accomplishments”, & I got the feeling he felt I was overqualified. The kicker was when he said “you realize this is an individual contributor” after I said I knew this job was to build out a function not currently anywhere in the company. Radio silence since.

I don’t feel like I’m getting much attention on the project . Hard to get internal people in meetings, don’t feel like my role is as respected. Can I roll myself off the project and join next one ?
