Our expert says:
The diet you were using while you took the Duromine and Amiloretic was very minimalistic, and it is possible that the 3 kg in weight you have gained actually represent water that is no longer being removed by Amiloretic (which is a diuretic or water pill). I can only suggest that you do the following: Change over to a balanced energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ 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 or more minutes a day, while stopping the Duromine. But continue with the Amiloretic for a week or so, to see if the weight you have gained is water or not. It is also important to discuss stopping such medications with the dr who prescribed them before you discontinue them.
Wishing you a happy Festive Season
