i have gained about 15 pounds since my dx 1 year ago. i'm guessing it is related to the fatigue from tasigna and also the birth control i had to begin taking once diagnosed. anyway, enough is enough and i've recently began working out regularly (which by the way, has helped greatly reduce the fatigue), counting calories along with healthier eating, more raw fruits and veggies and more water and green tea- no soda or juice. also using cinnamon and ginger to help increase my metabolism. i really have ALOT more energy, haven't felt this good since i've had cml. anyway, weight loss seems to be a little slower or harder than it used to be before CML. so i'd really like to add a little boost into my weight loss plan like a natural supplement, such as one popular one known as African Mango. Was wondering if anyone has tried it or anything else to naturally boost their fat burning ability while using TKI's? i don't know if its safe, but i don't see why not since it comes from a plant but i thought i'd just stop by here and see if any of u have tried it or what any of you might be doing to help lose weight? any info on natural weight loss supplements (not interested in any more chemicals ) or tips for effective weight loss for CML'ers would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you!
p.s. i feel silly posting this question when there are so many more important ones to be answered, but i don't see my onc for two more mos. to ask about the african mango. so just thought it couldn't hurt to stop by here and see if anyone may have a tip or two. thx.
