I've been on Medifast for 3 weeks and doing ok. I had to eat out today due to a fund raising event after work. I went to a new restaurant and I selected my food within plan. The problem was the bread basket. I thought that I could just take a taste of the half slice of banana bread. Didn't happen and I ate the entire piece.

At least that was good..

I don't have a problem getting back on plan, but I'm not sure if I need to do anything special/different because of this slip. I looked up nutrition info on banana bread and it pushed my carbs to 108 instead of the 85 where I'm normally at..

Any ideas would be appreciated...

Just keep on working the Medifast plan as is. Don't try and cut out an Medifast meal to make up for the bread. You need the nutrients that are in those little packets..

But good for you for stopping at one piece and getting back on plan. And obviously banish the I'll-just-have-a-little-taste thinking for now...

Yep, just get back on the wagon. You can do it...

No worries Lynnie. I think everyone slips up from time to time. The good part about slip-ups, I've found, is that they show me how over my old life I am. If I ever cheat, even just a tiny bit, I feel guilty the WHOLE rest of the day, and possibly the week. That guilt is enough to give me the motivation I need to stay OP..

Don't cut out any Medifast meals to make up for the calorie intake - you need the nutrients. I wouldn't worry over one piece of bread, but if it'll make you feel better a nice brisk walk around the block might do the trick. And just remember ... the next time you go "Hmm, maybe just a taste..." remember this feeling. It's just not worth it! Being good to yourself and getting where you need to be ... THAT is what's worth it!.

P.S. Great numbers for your first three weeks! Keep it up!..

Actually everybody doesn't slip up from time to time. Lots of people handle these situations by never taking that first bite so they never have to worry about whether to take the second one..

That's the best thing you can do to help yourself. Simply say no thank you. Sometimes it's harder than others but I've never had a single occasion when I wasn't glad I did it..

You can't make up for a slip. Have your 5 Medifast meals and just keep moving and consider it a lesson learned...

I agree with GGRobin, for some of us, never taking the first bite is the answer. I would be one of those people, and I find that really thinking about every bite I take, and not justifying eating foods I shouldn't (one chip won't hurt me, what harm can one slice of cheesecake do?) helps keep me from cheating. I've found the problem with justifying even one bite isn't the one chip or the slice of cheesecake, it's the danger of justifying at every meal and in between too.

I see your predicament as an opportunity to learn how to stay on track. Even after we are finished losing weight we can never go back to eating the whole breadbasket, so learning to eat one slice and go back to healthier eating (in this case, eating one slice then going back OP) is a skill we all need to learn. Hopefully you're not beating yourself into a pulp, but instead are thinking about it logically and how to avoid it again in the future..

Personally, I think you did a good job in stopping at one slice (God knows what I would have eaten...) and your weight loss so far is outstanding! You have a lot to be proud of...

Thanks for your input! I agree that it's a lesson learned...

Just get back on the wagon, which it sounds like you have, and keep moving forward. You can do it...
