One of the few famous quotes that has majorly affected my life is Voltaire's "The perfect is the enemy of the good."
Having to be perfect is a perfect excuse not to do something.
Sometimes good enough is good enough.
Even on a diet like Medifast.
If you go on the Medifast forums there is a lot of conversation about such minutiae as whether you can you have one sliver of avocado in your salad or two.
While rapidly losing 30 pounds in less than four months, I never worried about exact amounts of this or that. Sometimes I even had a few beans in my Chipotle chicken salad and used avocado and salsa as my dressing.
Having to track and measure everything just seems to compulsive for me. If that's what I had wanted to do, I would have joined Weight Watchers and become an obsessive point counter.
Most of Medifast is very prescribed; so a little modification here and there does not mean you will be kicked out of ketosis.
You cannot drink a margarita or mindlessly munch on chips at a Mexican restaurant. Or eat a fluffy bun with your hamburger. But an extra ounce of chicken in your salad or a handful of almonds will not sabotage your weight loss.
At least, that was my experience. Individual results may vary.
You can purchase Medifast replacement meals directly from Medifast Centers, the Medifast website or -- for no extra cost -- through the co-branded website of a Medifast TSFL health coach. Medifast does not recommend purchasing its products from third party vendors, but if you choose to do so, you can find them on both Amazon and eBay.
