"Qsymia Weight Loss Plan Top Dog in Weight Loss"

November 23, 2005
While Qsymia is the new top dog in weight loss medication there is so much more to it. Anyone who takes any kind of supplement for the purpose of losing weight will maximize their potential weight loss and health gain by simply understanding the full dynamics of the ‘drug’. In the case of Qsymia, there’s no better source to give you all the information you need than Dr. Lipman’s book the Qsymia Weight Loss Plan. It is all in this book. Naturally he is going to give you the information you need to determine if this drug is right for you in the first place, but he’s also going to tell you the how’s and why’s of individualizing your plan of action, in other words how to take Qsymia in a way that actually works for you because, quite simply, we don’t all have the same metabolism. This book provides a total food plan to go with it, including color glossy pictures. No, he doesn’t plan your menu but rather he gives you the information you need to plan your own menu, one that works for you. He talks a lot about portion control, again with very helpful color glossies for easy reference. While science is taking the extreme agony of dieting out of the picture with wonder drugs such as Qysmia, a common sense approach is still necessary to gain the most bang for your buck. I love that this drug is all about reducing cravings and taming hunger but we are also creatures of habitual-type eating and Dr. Lipman addresses this with beautiful insight into human realities. If you are considering taking Qysmia for weight loss secondary to Metabolic Syndrome (fat around the middle), take this book with you and you will have the best offense and defense one could have on your own private team. Good luck, and thank you Dr. Lipman! Book Review

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are on Qsymia or are thinking about taking it - read this book first, it will really help you to make correct choices, November 29, 2012

This review is from: Qsymia Plan for Weight Loss: A Practical Guide To Using the New Diet Medication (Kindle Edition) 

One thing I would like to mention first - the exact mechanism of appetite regulation is not yet fully known. However, and that is one of the reasons I like reading books written by professionals in their fields, Dr. Lipman does manage to put together a pretty nice list of things that regulate the feeling of hunger. The explanations are simple, designed for a layman, but not simplistic. To be honest, if you just stick to the first part of the book, you can probably have a good weight control plan without taking any medications.

That said, if you are reading this, you most likely have tried many ways to lose weight and haven't succeeded in keeping it off. I am not advocating you getting a prescription for Qsymia (more on that later). What I am saying is that if you are seriously overweight, perhaps fifty or even a hundred pounds over, do yourself a favor and start losing the excess fat right now! Otherwise, you might not live for too long. If drugs is what it takes, so be it. But only with precautions!

I, myself, is almost thirty pounds over. If I lose that, I could perhaps, see my six-pack again one day. Or, I could go on gaining weight and you'll see me rolling around Safeway, loading my cart with ice-cream :P. A frightening thought. However, I do think I'll settle for losing fifteen or, better yet, twenty pounds or so and try to keep them off. Still, in the last four years I have been unsuccessful in loosing that weight. Maybe I haven't tried hard enough.

Okay, enough about me. I wanted to talk about Qsymia. If you decide to get a prescription for it, do keep in mind that it is a really potent drug with possible dangerous side effects so, you need to tell your physician if you are not responding well to the drug; you cannot keep taking it for the rest of your life to keep the weight off - it's not designed for that; and you will need to make some dietary changes to maximize the effects of the medication.

Qsymia is a combination of Topamax - the antiepilepsy drug, that has shown some promise in keeping the migraines under control and even helps with alcoholism, and Phentermine - a potent short-term appetite suppressant; think - medical-grade speed. Both medications have a long list of side effects; both medications need to be taken under a doctor's supervision. When combined together, they become a potent combination. There's really very little information available on Qsymia, however, the possible adverse effects of Phentermine and Topomax are well documented.

I've gathered together a collection of symptoms you should be on lookout for when taking Qsymia, derived from the info available on its components: Book review: December 5 2012

Losing weight is often described as a battle, when it is actually a war. With the Qsymia Plan for Weight Loss you will be armed and ready with a revolutionary weight loss plan for the rest of your life.I can not review the drug Qsymia, but the food plan is simple and easy to remember.

With this plan you will be able to:

1. Learn the cause of your weight gain.
2. Control your appetite.
3. Begin to make the proper food choices.

and most importantly...lose weight.

As you can see, this is some serious medicine. If you decide to take it, please keep these symptoms in mind.

Dr. Lipman also put together a drug interaction chapter in case you are already taking some other medications - do make sure to read it. He also describes how to get the most out of taking this drug - the understanding of your cravings, the most efficient diet to stay on while you are taking it, etc. If you are on Qsymia or are thinking about taking it - read this book first, it will really help.
