I wanted to write about my (unexpected) weightloss whilst using 5HTP for non-weightloss reasons.
Please be aware that obviously it varies between person and it is recommended you DO NOT take them if you're on any other medication (I am not).
I fell off the weightloss bandwagon about November due to RL issues and comfort ate... a lot and gained a fair bit of weight (Unsure how much as I don't weigh myself atm)
I originally started to take them because I have sleep issues and read that they help a lot.
Which they worked straight away for, I can now fall asleep quickly and it so nice. :')
I started to use them at Christmas actually so its been about a month. My appetite was normal up until about a week ago and now I'm barely ever hungry.
I eat small because ya know, body needs energy to run and I work full time so need some energy.
This week have eaten like.. 2 sandwiches, a banana and a chocolate bar.
Not because I;m ignoring being hungry...I'm just not hungry.
And I can see I've already lost a fair bit of weight, albeit itll be water weight.
I dont know how long itll last and its probably not doing my body any good.
But these appetite suppressant side affects for a supplement I take for sleeping...aint gonna complain.
Fingers crossed it works for a while.
If anyone has any questions feel free to fire away.
