The so-called “antipsychotic drugs”…
Yes, it looks like it’s written for lay people.
It is but its at least twice as difficult which makes it near impossible for most people considering that losing weight is hard enough on its own.

The whole thing is not to loose weight but to stabilize.
I used top be 6 feet tall, but I’ve lost an inch somewhere.
Currently, I’ve got a viral infection, and I’m off my feed. I’m down from 188 pounds to 172 pounds.
I gave the study a fast glance, didn’t read it all, but I don’t know how they say it’s possible to lose weight on it. I, as an example, am a person who exercised for years and kept a low level body fat and ate properly to a point that my family said it was too much. I kept eating well after I started risperidone, but I got fatter in no time. I couldn’t exercise because my body was in pain and I tired too fast and felt too sedated.
Now, my dose is lower so the weight gain stopped but even eating well I can’t lose the weight I gained (5-10kg, I’m not fat, but I had abs before so the difference is still big).
Perhaps it varies from person to person but, for me, weight loss on antipsychotics is not possible.
It’s impossible without a stimulant and metformin
I lost 8kg when I was just on aripiprazole (I’m just on aripiprazole again), so I think it’s possible, but it depends on which med you’re taking.
When I was just on olanzapine, I lost around 1kg, but I wasn’t able to stick with the diet. The hungriness was immense.
My BMI is 20.
The problem is ever since being on abilify my motivation has been low and exercise is like trying to move my feet that have become magnetic to the ground!
