Once you get into the groove, Medifast is pretty damn easy. You just follow the instructions and don’t put anything in your mouth that’s not on the program.
Everybody will have cravings for their favorite foods, but you know there are certain things that you will be giving up if you want to lose weight quickly. French fries and doughnuts are not on the menu.
However, it’s also important to keep track of the tiny things. I recently realized that my Altoids addiction could be negatively impacting my weight loss. I know it sounds insignificant and ridiculous. But when looking at the nutrition information on the Altoids box, I realized that 3 mints contain 2 carbs and 10 calories.
This wouldn’t seem like a big deal, but like I said, I am pretty addicted. My Altoids addiction started when I quit smoking. I started popping the mints as a distraction from nicotine cravings – and I pop quite a few of them. They really did help me to quit smoking so the overall health impact has been positive.
But until now, I never really thought about the caloric aspect. Now I realize that those tiny bursts of calories and carbs are adding up throughout the day and could be affecting the overall effectiveness of my weight loss. As I mentally prepare to get back on program next week, I’m taking a look at everything I consume. I’ll definitely be on the market for a sugar-free mint.
If you’re looking to make the most of the quick weight loss that Medifast offers, take a look at everything that you put in your mouth throughout the day. Are there any hidden weight loss hijackers that could be hindering your weight loss success.
