Hey, I understand your view point, and I'm sorry it didn't work for you. For me, I'm now up to around Day 22 of using Duromine, and still have had no problems, when bed time rocks up, I'm out like a light. I've never had an addictive type personality, and I personally, don't find myself feeling any different to my normal self.
The Duromine is being used to help me during my VLCD diet, and I find myself still consuming all elements of my VLCD diet, and very rarely missing any part, because when I do forget to eat a part, I feel hungry. On the occasional day I have forgotten to take my Duromine, I find myself more hungry than usual.
As for following a healthy eating plan, I have done that, and it did not work. The only reason I put on weight was because I was basically flat on my back for 2 years, undergoing knee operations, where it was a struggle and huge effort to get from my bed to the lounge, therefore, not burning any calories, but consuming food as normal.
I will eat healthily, as I always have done, once I finish my Duromine and VLCD program. I don't envision putting any weight back on once I have finished, due to that combination of healthy eating and being able to exercise fully again. I guess this is why different things work for different people. I'm not trying to change my lifestyle to become more healthy, I'm trying to get back to what my lifestyle is... And maybe that's why this works for me.
Victims; Aren't we all...
