You know not everyone gains wieght from the drug and if you do you can keep it to a minimal if you eat healthy and exercise. Its the ones that give into the hunger temptations,cravings, and eat poorly that put on some pounds. It does get your appetite going, but remember everytime you feel hungry you dont have to gorge yourself with cakes and pies and wash it down with a 2 liter of cola. Small healthy things can curb a hunger attack, even a glass of water can for a bit.
