Medifast Helped Me Cure My Addiction to Whites

One of the easiest ways to lose weight is to give up white foods, and by that I don't mean cauliflower. The two "bad" whites are sugar and refined flour. Along with corn syrup, these ingredients -- used in most processed foods -- made me fat.

If you are addicted to empty calorie carbs like I was, giving up the whites is hard to do. It took me following a rigid plan like Medifast to finally say "sayonara" to those wily whites.

Here's how I found out I am cured:
I used to be addicted to foods that
contained sugar and white flour

Last night a box of goodies arrived from my husband's daughter loaded with chocolate peanut butter balls and to-die-for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I pondered the idea of ignoring them altogether but decided to have just a taste of each to honor the sender.

Mmmm... chocolate peanut butter balls
from my daughter-in-law. The insides
have that delicious malt-bally crunch.
Last year I ate more than  a dozen.
Interestingly, instead of wanting more or going into a feeding frenzy, I felt that old familiar jittery feeling coursing through my blood that I used to get from eating too much sugar. It was surprisingly easy to resist the temptation to keep eating these delicious confections since I knew I would feel increasingly worse if I continued.

Instead, I drank some water to cleanse my palate, then mixed up some Medifast brownie batter. I thoroughly enjoyed my substitute chocolatey nightcap that left me feeling satisfied without jangling  my nerves.

Even after I lose my last few pounds I plan to continue to keep Medifast brownie mix and a few other no-sugar sweets on hand to satisfy my sweet tooth without making me feel shaky.
