I was only 95 lbs/43 kg before meds. After 6 months on saphris I was up to 200 lbs/91 kg. Even after switching and trying to lose weight I couldn’t. Went on haldol and gained more. Finally switched to perphenazine and with much difficulty I’ve started losing some weight.
Well if I lose weight, the Chubby Chaser I’m having sex with will go away. But at my age it wouldn’t bother me. I tried to fix him up with a skinny guy closer to his own age, but he said he wasn’t his type.
Cut the bacon and fries/chips as these have the most bad calories. I don’t eat bacon at all but I do very rarely eat fries/chips. My problem is eating too much carbs like bread. I did a low fat low carb diet for 1 month and lost 20lb but then stopped, gained 10lb back. Its hard bcz of my severe negative symptoms and bcz of the meds. I have been replacing breakfast with a 180 calories 21g protein, protein bar since 6 months ago.
