Can Phentermine Replace Diet and Exercise?

Questions continue to pour in from both new and existing patients at transformyou about Phentermine and how it helps with weight loss. The Phentermine treatment we offer has become one of our most popular services and many people have seen great results when they use it consistently and correctly.

Why does Phentermine work so well? It contains an organic compound called Apidex, which actually decreases your appetite by stimulating the central nervous system. Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and certain neurotransmitters to suppress the feelings of hunger. It can also provide a boost to energy levels.

When patients first start taking Phentermine, they will probably notice an immediate difference. As their appetite decreases, they crave less food, which makes it easier to avoid unhealthy snacks and in-between meal eating. They also notice that bump in their energy levels. While these benefits of taking Phentermine are important in the weight loss process, they should never take the place of a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise. Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning. 

If anything, the energy boost that you might receive from taking Phentermine should be put to good use by exercising. Many people who are trying to lose weight know how difficult it can be to stay motivated to exercise. Now you have that extra push and drive to get up and stay active. You don’t have to go out and run a marathon, but use your new-found energy to help you create a new exercise habit. That might be a 20 minute walk or bike ride around the neighborhood.

As you get started with Phentermine, be sure to incorporate a healthy and low-calorie diet into your routine to see the best possible results. You don’t have to go too extreme with your diet. Start simple with smaller portions. You’ll find that the hunger suppression in Phentermine will make a difference. You won’t crave unhealthy snacks and junk food like you used to. You’ll also find that it is easier to fight off the urges to snack between meals.

Remember that Phentermine is there to help you as you work to create more healthy and nutritious habits and routines. It is not meant to take the place of a good diet and regular exercise.
