    Some of you are familiar with my meteoric rises and falls in weight and fitness level. This time I'm just doing cardio and trying to eat right... affecting a lifestyle change instead of a year long no holds barred fitness obsession.

    But, I was at the doctor and asked about the fat blocking pill. He instead prescribed me this. You inject it using a pen devide across your belly, 15 minutes before eating. It has the effect of making your stomach contents not empty. So you feel full sooner.

    In combination with exercise, you lose weight like you had a gastric bypass.

    Anyone played with this shit?

    This is more effective than stimulants.

    Not really
    Patients who completed two years of exenatide treatment also had an average weight reduction from baseline of 5.2 kg (2.2 kg at 30 weeks). Nausea was generally mild to moderate and most frequent at initiation of treatment. Dr. Ratner pointed out that patients taking exenatide describe a feeling of satiety in the middle of a meal, and if they continue eating then they may experience nausea.

    sounds like a apetite suppressant ? do you have diabetes ? why don't you just stick to a decent diet and workout routine ? carb cycling works pretty well.

    Because that would require him to make a change in his life.

    Like I said I've done that before. Three times. I've lost more weight and have undergone more complete transformations than just about anyone on OT.

    This stuff is nice because it MAKES you do just what you said. Nice, eh? And you won't be hungry.

    Do you really think that you've gone under more transformations than anyone on this site. THere are a lot of things lots of us don't talk about. Just so you know the amount of muscle you carry is far more effective at burning calories than your wasted cardio sessions.

    Yes, I really think I've had one of the most dramatic transformations on this site. Three Times.
