Discussions that mention paxil

Weight Loss board


I do not have an eating disorder but I am 12kg overweight and nothing, i mean nothing will shift it, i took paxil for a year and is has wrecked my metabolism, i have no appetite but still eat, try to eat fruit and veg mostly and nothing happens, before this drug I would have lost a lot of weight, so i understand why people ask about starvation mode, i wondered if i was in it because my body will not shed weight but i probably eat too much for that.Sample diet for the day

breakfast tea and 1 piece of toast with butter and marmalade
lunch half a rockmelon cup tea
dinner salad
evening tea 2 shortbread biccies

This surely should make a person lose weight???

Stop crapping your metabolism and eat. :)

Eating more, more frequently, balanced (protein/fat/carbs) small meals and exercising may help you get out of starvation mode. But you have to eat more.
