My 1st question is: How can I find out about getting a patent for my food Medifast recipes? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Another quick question... First of all, I am one of the lucky ones who dumps pretty easily so I cant cheat without paying dearly..

A month ago I made some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and they smelled soooooooo good I couldnt take itso I took a bite, chewed, and spit it into the garbage can. At a buffet in Vegas, I had my husband get a piece of cherry pie so I could take a bite and spit it out. At Halloween I did the same thing with a Butterfinger candy bar..

Now Thanksgiving is coming. Id love to taste a bite of pie, but I know I cant swallow (Lu, insert joke here). So, is it horrible to occasionally take a bite and spit it out or am I headed for an eating disorder? Does anyone else do this?.

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

You could try to replace those fattening sugar laden desserts with healthier lower sugar desserts or if chocolate is your thing try dark chocolate. I thought I would hate it but I love it. I think the saying if you worry about having the problem you probably don't have the problem is true here but just keep a watch on it and when you stop worrying about it it is time to worry...

If you have a sweet tooth, check out the site.

They have great sugar free recipes for desserts along with other great recipes for meals. I made the sugarfree apple pie and it was really good. Making it for thanksgiving so my husband and I have some kind of dessert :)..

This is actually a real disorder. They even did a disgusting show about it on tv, like on Discovery Health Channel, and it was nasty. The lady chewed everthing, not just unhealthy stuff, and spit it out into a cup. It was utterly disgusting. I definately understand the desire, but I don't want to put myself in the position of having a real eating disorder, considering I bet a lot of us have had a disorder in our past. I abused laxatives for a time during college.

Be careful dears and don't hurt yourself. Hugs..

I look at the sugar content of things.. if I can read the label and know exactly what is in each item. I may have a small bite and not spit it out. I will not eat anything that will make me sick, nor do I go crazy with it. I'm not sure if the chewing and spitting thing is healthy for the mind at all. I will not put anything in my mouth that I don't know the nutritional content of.

Depriving yourself of things isn't healthy either, find a way to satisfy your sweet tooth without making you sick or regretful. I'm sure Michelle has tons of recipes for a sweet tooth...

I think it all depends on the person and the frequency..... I have not had my.

Surgery.

Yet, but it is my understanding I will not tolerate steak well..... that is ok...... however,I LOVE RARE JUICY STEAK, I already plan to suck the juice out of a nice tender peice of grilled meat, and spit out the stuff I can not digest..... I do not consider that a disorder.....It to me just makes sense....i am not going to binge on steak, I am going to enjoy it occasionally just like everyone else..

I am not a sweet eater, already if pop something in my mouth that I think I will like, find that it is dreadful I spit it out......

I don't think you should beat yourself up over an occasional piece of candy , it's good stuff. Worry if you start doing it all the time, and you become obsessed with it...... Eggface has some great sugarfree alternatives you can swallow.....find something you really like.

Just my opinion....liz..
