I’m about 280 lbs. I have a fatty liver. My doctor suggested a surgery where they give me a new stomach, so I would lose weight. It’s the last thing in the world I want to do. I hate exercising because of the medications. My strategy is to use appetite suppressants. I’ve lost 13 lbs the last couple of months. I’ve lost 80 lbs before because I went off meds. I gained it all back because I had to get back on meds. Does anyone else here take appetite suppressants? I’m trying to find the best one.
Tryptophan- Makes me hungry then the next day I have less of an appetite
Carraluma- Works instantly and has mild strength
Saffron- Works instantly and has mild strength. It does have serotonin in it though.
Hoodia Gordonii- Just tried it for the first time. Still pending.
I suggest any dopamine agonist. Since anti psychotics decrease your dopamine and make you eat more, my logic is anything that increases dopamine, suppresses your appetite. Nicotine being the prime example. Try something that increases your dopamine. But again, everyone is different.
