Duromine which is an appetite suppressant can lose its effect over time. There is no harm in enjoying the food we eat - that is in fact one of the prime features of eating. If you are, however, overeating and this is making you gain weight then you need to use an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 min or more a day. While you are on the ‘Diet & Nutrition’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by also checking out the ‘Weight Loss’ section and exploring the site. You may find if you read about the psychological aspects of weight gain that you are using food as a 'comfort' or an indulgence. If this is the case and you cannot stop eating because of a psychological problem, then please consult a clinical psychologist to help you work out why you are trying to use food as a comfort or an indulgence. The psychologist will also help you learn coping mechanisms to stop this behaviour.
