> Well, maybe you did gain your weight from overeating and lack of exercise. That's just not true for everyone though. I worked out regularly and eate right before I went on Prozac and have continued to do that while taking prozac. In the last 6 weeks I've eaten much less (1200 cals per day) without any significant weight loss. The formula is to expend more calories than you you take in. I know how it works-- been using it successfully for many, many years. Since I have been on prozac it no longer works. I still have good muscle tone but it is now cover by fat (settle down, harry, i know how you like that kind of talk :)) so explain what i'm doing wrong, pleeease.

I'm like laura. I have been a fanatic about exercise -- an OCD. There's something about ssri's. Maybe its that we're now all alpha males and females, per "Listening to Prozac", so nature requires us to be big and strong... Any darwinians care to comment?
