View Full Version : Serotonin Power Diet

Hello All!
I'm 6 weeks totally off of Cymbalta (which was **** to get off of) and I've gained 15 pounds since then. I tried St. John's Wort, but it was too strong (even at only 300 mg per day) and it lowered my blood pressure drastically.
I really need help with losing weight, and I'm at a loss because nothing is working and I'm craving sugars/carbs. Exercise, eating right, and the fight to stay away from sugar are a daily battle with no results.
Does anyone have any advice, success stories, etc. on the Serotonin Power Diet?

I don't know anything about that diet. But in my experience, if I'm getting enough healthy fats and vegetables, my sugar cravings go away. I also need to eat an adequate amount of protein to feed my level of exersion.
