Quick question... Does the Medifast packaged food taste good?like? Thanks for any response. 2nd question I got is.. Has anyone been watching that new reality TV show on OWN called Addicted to Food? It has been very helpful to me to watch how food addiction works and how these folks are trying to overcome it. As I have been posting in my blog, being on Medifast has really opened my eyes to my relationship to food and how I use it as an emotional crutch, so this show has hit home with me..

On the show the counselors describe the first 5 days of being on a controlled diet is like going through 'de-tox', just like with any other addiction. And that is exactly how I felt the first 5 days on Medifast, headaches, sweats, dizziness, etc. It was withdrawal symptoms from the carbs. I guess I never thought of it like that before..

Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has been following the show and what you think of it...

Yep, but... you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm it as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Medifast guys because they can help better...

Post the configure.php file for your live iPage site and also for the development site, without the db info, etc..

For safety sake, you should never use a live db for your development..

Well the woman who almost dropped out because she was so sick for her first few days was someone that I really identified with. Also, what they have uncovered isthat most of the people have a deep self-loathing of their bodies that I can also relate toI hate to have my picture taken for instance because I hate what I look like. One woman said she thinks of herself as a thin person, so when she finally had to really look at herself naked in the mirror she was shocked. I think I am like that too, I don't really grasp that I am that fat so when I see what I really look like, I am disgusted with the vision!.

So I have been learning a lot about myself and understanding what is behind my problem with food, by watching this show..

I watched the first show and found it interesting, especially the group therapy session. Seems like there will be insights shared that can be helpful to many people, even those not as extreme as those on the show. I missed the second episode, but hopefully can catch a rerun. I believe that's the one that described the detox you speak of and would like to learn more. Don't yet know who I may identify with, but will stay tuned...

Comment #5

I have also set the session directory in the development database to /home/devuser/tmp.

Then chmod 77 /home/devuser/tmp.

The sessions for the development environment are writting to the new tmp directory, but I still get the same problem..

I try to login, and it doesn't go anywhere. I also verified that the administrators table had identical data to the production environment, which it does. again, I am able to login to the production admin...

Comment #6

I love watching these kinds of shows, I find it helps me stay on track and keeps me motivated!..

Comment #7

Is the HTTP_SERVER supposed to be the path? or just the iPage domain name? even if that instance of osc is not on the http document root?..

Comment #8

I don't think there's a weight control related reality show that I haven't seen! LOL! yes, I do watch Addicted to Food and yes I can so relate to what these people are going thru. I have often thought I was addicted to food myself since I know I have an addictive personality to start with. I really could relate when the man said "face it, we're not addicted to BROCCOLI"... personally my issue is sugar! I think Tennie is so wonderful..

Comment #9

I haven't seen the show but this is me exactly. I have always been told that I have a pretty face, so I just focus on the neck up and think I look WAY better than I do. Pictures and video of myself just destroy me. I have a sister who is a recovered bulemic who weighs 117 pounds and she id the opposite...sees herself as bigger than she is. It is really strange how our minds work...

Comment #10

It is on now if you have not gotten to see them all.....There are only 2... 10:00am central time..

Comment #11

Glad I just saw this,I am watching right now!..

Comment #12

Love that show... also what I like about it is that they have people who are bulamic on there too, and thin who have body/food issues, really, it's the same thing... my 27 yr old daughter has a major eating disorder, and as a child she always hated getting her picture taken, I know she has this body dismorphic problem where she thinks she is fat.... she is 5 ft 6 in tall and weighs 115lbs and trying to get to 110.... she will go for days not eating and then will eat like a kid in a candy store and or bakery...... makes me ill and makes me feel sooooo sad for her...

She had to grow up with a morbidly obese mom who was always fighter her weight...... ME... anyway.....

Great show !!!!..
