Not Quite Yummy, Not Quite Gross

A few weeks ago, I acquired almost a month of Med­i­fast dia­bet­ic foods via Freecy­cle. I’d been con­sid­er­ing giv­ing Med­i­fast a try, but the price is a bit much for a “try.” The post seemed meant for me, so I’m try­ing it.

One prob­lem with diet­ing is that I just hate deal­ing with food, peri­od. That’s why I had so much trou­ble get­ting enough “points” when doing Weight Watch­ers. My metab­o­lism is real­ly, real­ly slow as a result. Not real­ly hav­ing to think about the food, or mess with it much, works for me. That’s what Slim­Fast worked back when I was unhealth­ily skinny. 

So any­way, there’s a fair amount of food in this bag that I won’t be try­ing if any­one wants it. I’m still too picky, no mat­ter how easy the food is to make, to eat chili and some oth­er things. But I’ve had a chance to read the box­es and ver­i­fy that there’s no aspar­tame in the foods (some­thing I wor­ried about), and so far I’m not get­ting a migraine after hav­ing the first shake. It’s no worse than Slim­Fast was, and did­n’t involve milk. 

I’ll need to get a blender or shak­er thing or some­thing of that sort because I did­n’t real­ly get it mixed prop­er­ly. But it ain’t bad, and accord­ing to the labels, between the shakes and the “snack bars” I’d be get­ting a far more bal­anced diet than I do now. As long as I remem­ber to con­sume them, which is always the rub with me. 

Yes, I’ll talk to my doc­tor. No, I’m not try­ing to get skin­ny, just to lose a lit­tle weight, as I’ve been doing grad­u­al­ly anyway—I just hit a plateau. I’m not wor­ried about look­ing like Katie, but I do intend to live a good, long time. And I do need to show the doc­tors that I’m seri­ous about tak­ing care of myself. They’re weight-obsessed. I know that weight loss isn’t a mag­ic cure-all, but they don’t. We’ll see.

Does any­body want some Med­i­fast food­stuffs? One box each of Cream of Broc­coli Soup, Mine­strone, and Home­style Chili is available.
