That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
I did the same thing yesterday. I just ate and ate and ate...all the wrong foods. So, I recommited to a 30 day challenge starting today. I'm going to do this because the last time, lasted 6 straight months raw. If I am to stick with it...I have to run this race with endurance. I can do this and so can you!.
It's not all about eating what we feel like, but rather eating what is best for our bodies...and sticking with it long enough to see the results that push us higher!.
God Bless you and all those on this forum struggling this week. You are in my prayers! (((HUGS)))..
Have a look at my post above, am dealing with the same thing right now. I have a history of eating disorders as well. I saw on your blog you are reading bondage breakers, I am reading breaking free. Would love to chat with you and see how you are doing with it!.
One day at a time, you can do it...
Sure we can chat. you can leave me messages on my blog in the forums area and I will respond there...
Jafragirl, I empathize with you. Have you considered fasting or have tried it in the past? It may help you burst through the door of whatever it is which is holding you back. Try either the master cleanse for 10 days minimum or a green juice or green smoothie fast for 7 days mimimum. Definately squeeze in a liver cleanse at some point also. Your colon and liver are toxic which is contributing to you feeling depressed and discouraged. You more than likely would benefit greatly from a really good cleanse as I believe you're already aware.
Change your thoughts..
Change your life..
Wishing you much success. I see you getting there..
It is a thought HOWEVER being a recovered bulimic fasting tends to set me up for a binge. I try not to do things that will set me up. maybe when I am a little further down the road.....
I do understand what you've shared about your reluctance to fast..
Focus on being a present day raw foodist.
Rather than a recovered bulimic and you'll find that everything will begin to shift for you. As long as you're focused on bulimia, you will stay stuck in that energy, even as a survivor. If you start to focus your thoughts on what you do want and that you want to make good Medifast food choices, you will. As long as your thoughts remain focused on binging, even when you're not binging, you will binge when Medifast food is in front of you. Does this makes sense? The things that bring the greatest fears are usually the same remedies to what will help us. Like fasting for example.
That's all I will share as I do respect your need to get to a place of understanding this on your own. But since you posted on a public board I thought I'd chime in and share my own thoughts with you, but I sense that you've got it covered and are just sharing. I truly wish you the best and I hope whatever you plan to do works for you. Take care...

This is such a good quote. This made me realize that I am not thinking of myself as a compulsive overeater anymore, but an aspiring raw foodist!.
Thanks for this...
