As some of you may know, I started taking Duromine yesterday.
The dr that prescribed it to me, also referred me to see a dietician. But I cant get into see her for another two weeks. In the meantime, the dr told me to eat like a king at breakfast, a queen at lunch, and a pauper at dinner. He also said to include lots of protein in my breakfast.
My fiance done some research on the internet last night to find out how much protein our bodies need and the results he found said 1g for every kg you weigh. I am 90kg, so he has written up a food plan for me including 90g protein each day. For breakfast this morning he made me a high protein muesli, with lsa, yogurt and milk. Then he bought me in a protein shake. AND THEN.. he brings me a steak with scrambled eggs. I was so stuffed I just could not eat it. It seems rediculous to me that I have to eat so much!! I just physically cannot do it!? I still feel like I am going to barf now (sorry if TMI). And he still has a lunch and dinner planned for me. I feel like I have eaten enough to last me a whole week.
Does this seem excessive to everyone else!? I appreciate any input as I do not know how I am going to continue this for 2 more weeks
