That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
I also eat at night. I have not gained but am not losing the way I should. It is hard to break the habit but I am trying. Last night was good because I did not eat. One day at a time. Good lucdk!!..
No, I'm not at my goal weight, I would like to get 40 or 50 more off. I just don't want to gain weight at all. I know I may go up and down slightly, but I feel like if I gain weight it will equal a waste of time in getting the.
...does that make sense?..
I am not a.
Eater myself but know someone who is. It is NOT an eating disorder. It is a brain disorder usually associated with trauma and linked with your history of sleepwalking. Your therapist should be able to help you find effective treatment for it. If he/she can't, FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN. As someone who lives with a brain disorder every day, I can assure you getting this under control is infinately more important to your long-term health and happiness than hitting your goal weight after WLS.
This is something beyond your control and has nothing to do with who you are as a person...
Well.. from my experience.. (having lost more that I ever truly imagined).. the minor set backs and plateaus were a breeze.. In time the weight will come off we have to be patient.. we didnt gain it all over night..
Focus on getting in the protein and enjoy the ride of your life... soon you will be in my shoes and wondering how you can possiblly get in more calories to maintain!!!!!..
Yeah, I feel ya. I have similar issue at night time. But I remember why I had the.
(cure diabetes) and refocus myself. I eat on a routine, so I know what my calories are..
And breathe. You can do it. Do ya thing girl. lol...
My daughter, who was always thin, didn't sleepwalk but woould wake up ravenously hungry in the middle of the night and would eat every leftover, everything in the fridge. she would stuff herself until she was sick and swore she had no control over it. Finally CBS did one of those news specials on "night time eating syndrome" every symptom they described was what my daughter was experiencing. It is a brain disorder, according to them. ask your doctor if he or some doctor he knows has experience in treating this disorder. good luck..
Wow a brain disorder! I am gonna have to do some.
