Back to the nature for solutions!

more then $1200 later and weight gain I am back to where I started. Medifast is a wonderful program, however after so many tries I officially call it quits! I just couldnt stick to it. It might be a combination of things, but then again in the end it all came out to inability to sustain hunger. I am going through a lot emotionally but if I earned a dollar for every time I used it as excuse I am pretty sure money would be no problem in my life at all. I have been so rediculously irresponsible with my food selection it is not even worth mentioning it. Worst binges of my life, basically I just caved in to feeding my inner devils with pure junk. I would consume upwards of 5 ice creams daily along with nightly MCdonalds and other crap. So I am back at 260 pounds. Its a lot of weight to be carrying around! I still have lots of medifast boxes left over so I am still debating if I should sell it on ebay or just use it along with paleo style diet that works for me. I am going back to low carb as it is the only feasible way for me to at least stay where I am. My goal for the foreseebla future to relearn feeding my body with good , natural food to be satisfied. Thats the plan!

It's good to have you back, Vadim. :-)

I hope you'll find this anecdote inspiring: My 80ish mother-in-law has just adopted a low carb diet after seeing the success that Mad and I have both found with it. If she can start now, it's never too late! There's no time limit on self improvement.

The past is just what's gone before. It's not what you have to be now or in the future.

Stay strong and be good to yourself. You deserve it.

So true! Thanks!

Vadim, I'm still looking forward to seeing you make progress towards your goals. This is not about Medifast at all. It's perhaps the most effective of the plans out there and totally doable, but your other issues keeping getting in the way.

Everything in life doesn't have to be all or nothing. I say, give Medifast another chance. You could do Medifast every other day. Or, perhaps you could do Medifast certain meals of the day. When you are ready, consider the myriad ways you can incorporate this plan into your WOE. I say this to say that I don't think any particular strict WOE - be it LC or Paleo or whatever else - will be to your liking. You are not going to stick to ANY plan that completely eliminates your favorite foods. I know it's cliche, but it's all about moderation.

Good luck and don't give up.
