First off, Would you loose weight if you combined Medifast with healthy food? Thanks in advance for any comment. Another question on my mind: After being totally OP for two weeks for some reason out of compulsive habit I guess, I put 6 cheezits in my mouth yesterday when I was packing my son's lunch. When I went to add them into my food log I was astounded at just how many carbs is in 6 little cheezits! And for a whole serving? Ridiculous! Really, no one needs to be eating that many carbs, overweight or not. Though I rarely buy them, they were a treat for my son but I think I'm going to come up with a better alternative..

Anyone else had a food wake up call like that?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Indeed! And amazing too that all of a sudden one Tbsp of regular salad dressing (or my own recipe) is more than enough when before I'd pour it on, thinking I wasn't having much. Yeah, when you actually measure, and pay attention to labels and serving sizes it's extremely eyeopening. I think it's probably going to be the most important thing I learn from MF...

My wake-up call came when I gained 11 pounds in 3 days of off-plan eating, something I am not proud of. I have been 100% ever since. There is just no other way for me to be..

I have learned coping mechanisms. I can't stop the temptations from coming, especially if they are out of left field. But I AM responsible for how I respond to them. The "desire" may be there, but just because I "want" something doesn't mean I've failed myself or the program. If I ACT on that desire, THAT is a choice which can be devastating for me, so I no longer ACT out my desires in that area. I have to abstain completely.

Have a great day!..

It's crazy, isn't it? I really believe controlling carbs is the key to my long-term success so far with Medifast vs. WW (where I could eat whatever as long as I tracked it, and yes, generally I'd eat healthily.) Carbs make me crave more carbs... and I had a terrible time even staying within their very generous caloric/point parameters (1500 calories seems like so much food right now!).

My mother is extremely super-obese has severely uncontrolled diabetes (despite four insulin shots daily), but won't give up her white bread, orange juice, and other beloved carbs. I beg her to cut back on them (as does her medical team), but she won't. I also believe she is addicted to carbs I wish she would listen to me and try Medifast!.

And that's the crazy thing, as soon as I ate them I wanted more carby things when hadn't been having cravings for that stuff for 2 weeks!! I'm a firm believer in carb addiction and I know that I am going to have to watch carbs FOREVER. It's just my new reality..

Kb1968 I completely agree, I can't taste, lick, bite, nothing...

I know for a fact that I am addicted to carbs and sugar. My body after eat sugar will completely scream for more. It doesn't matter if it was just a peppermint within the carb guidelines. It is still making me want more..

I have had to explain to so many of my *close* friends that I can not just have one piece of chocolate, or one things that is sweet. I will obsess and plan in my head to get more. When my sane brain comes back I rationalize that it is to sweet and I will not enjoy it. Today I had a Medifast chocolate chip Pancake and was happy with that...
