I have no desire to eat between meals, which was my big problem. I would eat from dinner until I went to bed. If I do have anything to snack on, I have a piece of friut. Basically I eat a small breakfast of cereal, or a piece of toast and and egg, have a salad and cottage cheese for lunch and eat a normal dinner of whatever I want, but have cut back on my portion of starches. I am just not hungry ...

I've gone from 235lbs to 179 in less than 6 months with Bontril. I absolutely love this medication. I told my doctor I needed something that would work with insulin. I went from 60 units down to 16. My A1C went from 8.5 to 6.8.

Hard to rate effectiveness and ease of use because I stopped after two pills. My vision became blurry and even about a month after stopping my vision hasn't seemed to fully recover.
