Top Phentermine Tips: 20 Ways Feel Better & Lose More

Phentermine helps you lose weight by suppressing appetite and boosting energy, but day-to-day choices and changes are left up to you!

Phentermine success stories emerge from users who view the pills as a tool to achieve their goals while committing to a sustainable, healthy lifestyle.

So, here are 20 phentermine tips and tricks to help you feel your best and lose more weight with phentermine.

(1) Drink water

Did you know that your body is made up of over 60% water and that even small changes in water intake make a big difference in how you feel?

Hydration is critical to weight loss, and it’s even more important when you’re taking phentermine.

This medication causes dry mouth, and not drinking enough water exacerbates the uncomfortable “cotton mouth” feeling.

Since our bodies often confuse hunger and thirst, dehydration makes you more likely to snack unnecessarily, increasing overall calorie consumption and slowing weight loss.

To stay hydrated, aim for at least 8-12 glasses of water per day. Increasing fluid intake to compensate if you sweat a lot from working out or being outside in hot weather.

You may also need more water if you’re bigger (taller or heavier) than average or take diuretics.

How do you know if you’re staying adequately hydrated?

Despite all of the scientific advances, the best indicator of proper hydration is still simple: regular production of light yellow pee.

(2) Take it first thing in the morning

Take phentermine first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

This medication reaches its maximum effect about 3-4 hours after ingestion and then tapers off. Take your phentermine first thing in the morning to give yourself the best chance to feel the effects of the pill during the day and still be able to sleep at night.

If you take multiple pills daily, aim to take the last dose at least 8 hours before bedtime to minimize the risk of insomnia.

It’s best to take phentermine on an empty stomach so that it is better absorbed and more effective.

To get the most out of your phentermine, take it either 30-60 minutes before breakfast or 1-2 hours after.

All of that being said, always take phentermine precisely as prescribed. Your doctor knows your case best, so you should ALWAYS follow his or her dosage and care instructions carefully.

(3) Don’t skip meals

Phentermine is a potent appetite suppressant, so skipping meals can be tempting (and even easy).

Skipping meals is damaging because it makes it harder to get enough of the proper nourishment and increases the likelihood that you’ll grow overly hungry and overeat later in the day.

On the flip side, eating regular, substantial meals and snacks keeps your metabolism high, fuels your body to perform, and helps modulate your blood sugar.

These benefits make it easier to achieve sustainable weight loss and resist cravings. So, even while you’re working hard to lose weight, eat at least 1200 calories per day if you’re female or 1500 calories per day if you’re male.

Depending on your body and schedule, try to spread these calories across 3-6 meals per day.

(4) Get phentermine from a doctor

Phentermine hydrochloride, the active ingredient in phentermine weight loss pills, is a schedule IV controlled substance in the US and abroad.

As a result, the sale and distribution of this medicine are monitored by authorities, and it is ILLEGAL to buy or sell phentermine online.

Real phentermine is only available with a verifiable doctor’s prescription and must be purchased from a DEA-registered pharmacy.

Most major chains (e.g., Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc.) sell phentermine weight loss pills.

Don’t buy phentermine online, don’t take someone else’s pills, and never share your medication. All three actions are illegal and potentially dangerous.

(5) Make exercise a daily routine

Exercise is a crucial part of your weight loss journey and long-term healthy lifestyle.

In fact, research shows that physical fitness may be an even better predictor of future health than weight status.

Whether it’s a walk down the block or belly dancing class at the gym, moving a part of your day makes weight loss easier and faster.

While taking phentermine, make sure to clear any new exercise routine with your doctor.

Once you have the all-clear from your physician, gradually build up to meet current physical activity recommendations: 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity (e.g., running) or 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (e.g., walking) per week.

(6) More home-cooked meals, less take-out

phentermine tips: cook at home

The average American adult eats out 4.5 times per week.

If you love grabbing lunch with your coworkers or picking up take out on the way home, you’re in good company. Unfortunately, eating out doesn’t do any favors for your wallet or your waistline.

When you cook at home, you’re much more able to control what goes into your body, make more nutritious choices, and better control portions.

That makes home-cooked meals ideal for losing weight, reducing sodium intake, minimizing added sugars, and accommodating other dietary restrictions.


(7) Keep your doctor in the loop

Your doctor is your ally in this weight loss journey. Be open and honest with him or her at each stage of the process.

At the initial appointment, be prepared to discuss your full medical history and come with a complete list of all current/recent medications and supplements (and their doses).

To keep you safe and ensure phentermine is appropriate for you, your doctor needs a complete picture of your health.

After you start treatment, don’t be shy to contact your doctor about persistent or worsening side effects. It’s also worth a phone call or appointment if you feel that the phentermine isn’t working.

In general, don’t be afraid to ask your prescribing doctor if you have any questions or concerns.

(8) Prioritize sleep

Easier said than done… I know. With the hectic pace of modern life, the average American adult only gets 6.8 hours of sleep per night, and 40% sleep less than the recommended minimum of six hours per night.

Still, if your goal is weight loss, sleep matters, like eating right and staying active.

Sleep deprivation causes a cascade of hormonal changes that:

  • Dysregulate hunger and satiety cues
  • Intensify cravings for high-fat, high-sugar foods (“junk food”)
  • Slow metabolism and makes it harder to lose fat

None of these deviations promotes weight loss, which is why shut-eye is so important during your weight loss journey and beyond. According to most recommendations, the optimal amount of sleep for adults is 6-8 hours per night.

(9) Seek support

Research shows that people who lose weight with friends or family are more likely to achieve and maintain their goal weight.

Whether it’s in-person or online, steadfast support provides unmatchable benefits on your weight loss journey.

(10) Plan your meals and snacks

“Failing to plan is planning to fail.” Did a parent, teacher, or coach ever tell you this as a child? Turns out it holds true for weight loss, much like most other endeavors in life.

Plan ahead to pack healthy meals and snacks so that you’re not caught in a situation where you’re ravenous, and the only options are a vending machine or fast food.

Meal replacement shakes, protein bars, or even durable fruits (like oranges or apples) are great things to throw in a bag or the car if your schedule is unpredictable.

Planning ahead also helps you account for big events where you know you’ll probably eat more than usual.

If you know you have a party coming up this weekend, plan to build a little bit more of a calorie deficit during the week.

This is a good strategy that lets you let loose a little and celebrate with your loved ones while still staying true to your overall calorie & weight loss goals.
