Last year I went on a low carbohydrate diet and had a very successful weight loss -- 38 pounds in 6 months, or an average of 1-1/2 lbs per week. My cholesterol dropped dramatically because of the weightloss but before long it began to creep up again, likely because I am no where near my ideal weight. So I began taking Pravachol.
I gave myself a break from dieting for several months and now I am back on my low carbohydrate diet. However, I am getting absolutely NO results, no weight loss at all. I am trying to determine if this has anything to do with the diet itself or the introduction of Pravachol to my system.
Has anyone else out there experienced difficulty losing weight, despite a serious dieting effort, while taking any of the statin drugs? If so, do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks, Lynne
