Darryl’s story comes all the way from New York. He’s spent over a year working on his health after a mass of blood clots in his lungs led him to a spend over a week at the hospital and realize that this was not the life he wanted. He did not want to continue existing in a ‘nearly 500-pounds body’, so he accomplished a staggering 150-pound weight loss, achieved through permanent lifestyle changes and phentermine.
He also decided he could help others reach their weight loss goals too, and embarked on an inspirational chronicling of his ongoing weight loss journey through his Youtube channel.
Darryl started taking Phen Caps during his transition out of his phentermine treatment. He is still working hard on losing weight, becoming an inspiration to those surrounding him---in the gym, or in the online support communities where he participates. Darryl shows us that with discipline, determination and support from Phen Caps, you can also achieve your weight loss goals!
MY FIRST MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS - AUGUST
Starting Weight: 317 pounds - Current Weight: 313 pounds
"Phen Caps are very good appetite suppressants. They give you a good energy boost to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Healthy food can be awesome, after we break our carb addiction!"
Avocados really do deserve the title of ‘superfood’ as they’re jam-packed with vitamins, healthy fats, and fiber. If you’re a fan of avocados then you probably include them in everything, but in case you’re new to this versatile fruit, then they work especially well in salads to add a contrast of creaminess, can be mashed with condiments for a dip, or even eaten on toast.
Lean cuts of beef are a low-fat source of protein and iron, and without enough iron, your body can’t get oxygen to your cells, which in turn slows down your metabolism. Asparagus, like broccoli, and spinach can be steamed quickly, and provide a great, nutritious side dish!
PRO-TIP: Shake up your choice of greens, as there’s more than just iceberg lettuce out there: try some romaine, kale, arugula, spinach, escarole, or butter lettuce! Remember, the darker the leaf, the more nutrients it has, which are crucial to ensure successful weight loss.
"I am in a muscle-building phase, so my main goal is fat loss!"
Many people think that building muscle is only for body-builders, and women often dismiss lifting weights as just for men, however that’s really not the case. Weight training will tone your body - meaning less belly fat and leaner limbs. Building muscle will also increase your calorie burn for the future, meaning a more efficient body that’s able to burn calories even when you’re not working out.
PRO-TIP: When combined with a healthy diet, building muscle will increase your metabolic rate and enable your body to burn fat at a much faster rate, helping to counteract the natural decrease in metabolism as you get older.
MY SECOND MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS - SEPTEMBER
Starting Weight: 317 pounds - Current Weight: 310 pounds
When making the decision to lose those pounds for good, it can sometimes be confusing to know what you should be eating. While taking Phen Caps will suppress your hunger and make it easier for you to eat less, there is still the added pressure of trying to hit all your guideline daily allowances (GDAs) for vitamins and nutrients.
Chicken and turkey breast is packed full of protein, with 17 grams for an average-sized 58g breast, and a 3oz fillet of tuna or salmon contains 22 grams of protein, and half a tin of tuna contains around 17 grams.
PRO-TIP: Darryl finds that making simple, healthy meals at home is a great way to save on calories and is much cheaper than take-outs and ready meals. Check out these great meal recipes!
"I could feel the energy without the jitters or crash, an easy sustained energy. I started a job at my fave gym! Phen Caps get me through a shift without hunger!"

MY THIRD MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS - OCTOBER
Starting weight: 317 pounds - Current weight: 310 pounds
The omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish, such as salmon and sardines, make up a large percentage of our brain tissue. Eating a diet high in omega 3 will also keep your brain healthy and improve mood by keeping brain cells flexible, so the brain's messengers – neurotransmitters – can work more effectively. The omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil can also help weight loss efforts as these good fats assist your body to metabolize fat better and act as anti-inflammatory agents helping you to achieve greater weight loss around your waist.
“I maintained my weight loss while increasing my caloric intake during a muscle building phase.”
PRO-TIP: Phen Caps suppress appetite with powerful, high quality ingredients like caralluma and phenylethylamine. They also boost energy with caffeine, theobromine and red raspberry ketones. So, Phen Caps help you eat less and exercise more. Meanwhile, 5 Star CLA triggers your body to burn more calories and convert fat into muscle.
MY FOURTH MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS - NOVEMBER
Starting Weight: 317 pounds - Current Weight: 308 pounds
“I would say that the duration of the suppression of appetite has improved over time (…) I was able to lose weight while increasing my caloric intake because I’m trying to build muscle. Now I can continue to focus on my overall health.”
PRO-TIP: At Phen.com, we recognize that the most successful diets are ones that you can stick with in the long-term. Diets that make you feel good and give you the energy boost you need to exercise and lead a healthy life. If you eat lean meats, your weight loss sail will move smoothly through the waters. In fact, you need to be eating lean meats. Grill or bake lean chicken, fish and meat for dinner with steamed veggies, add them to salads, soups or eat a small portion for a snack.
“I am seeing a consistency in how my body responds to the Phen Caps and the 5 Star CLA (…) I like to take a pre-workout drink before weightlifting days.”
PRO-TIP: You may find that adding protein powder to a shake or smoothie is a good option. Often it’s a great way to add protein without as many calories to maximize your weight loss. Whey powder is one of the most common protein powders available and contains 135 calories and 17g of protein per 30g scoop. Add frozen berries and a splash of nonfat milk and you’ve got a tasty smoothie packed with protein and fiber. This could serve as a meal-replacement or snack and is perfect to help muscles recover after exercise. And, if you don’t eat dairy, there are many dairy-free protein powders made from hemp, brown rice and pea protein.
MY FIFTH MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS – DECEMBER
Starting Weight: 317 pounds - Current Weight: 308 pounds
“Phen Caps did wonders on helping me not over-indulge on holiday sweets. A little extra effort was required to stay focused on all the work I have put in and not let the holidays change that (…) I like to eat eggs with Portobello mushrooms for breakfast.”
PRO-TIP: Research has shown that eating two eggs in the morning can lead to more effective weight loss. One of the reasons is the high amount of protein – about 5.5 grams in one medium egg – which keeps you feeling full and focused. They also contain a nutrient called choline, which not only improves nervous system function and cardiovascular health, but also help to break down fat.
“(This month) Phen Caps helped me maintain my energy for workouts and to have the motivation to get the exercise done.”
PRO-TIP: A study by Penn State University found that those who exercise regularly are more likely to report feeling happier, more excited and with more enthusiasm than those who don’t exercise. So, instead of just focusing on what exercise can give you in the long term, you should also appreciate the day to day positive vibes it can inspire in you!
MY SIXTH MONTH WITH PHEN CAPS – JANUARY
Starting Weight: 317 pounds - Current Weight: 305 pounds
“Phen Caps continue to provide a consistent appetite suppression. I love having simple meals like roasted chicken with avocado.”
PRO-TIP: Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and the fiber and fat content of this delicious food will keep you full and help curb hunger pangs.
“I’ve maintained my energy for workouts and the desire to 'get moving" after taking a dose (…) Now I’ve started taking the 5 Star Fat Burner to help me achieve my weight loss goals faster.”
PRO-TIP: Our brand new 5 Star Fat Burner is formulated to help break down and burn body fat throughout the day and night. It contains clinically proven doses of Capsimax® and GreenSelect® Phytosome® to help you lose weight and cut inches faster than with diet and exercise alone. Enhanced with chromium, 5 Star Fat Burner also supports healthy glucose metabolism.
