First question I have is In american Medifast recipes, how much in weight is meant by a cup ? Looking forward for any answer. My other question... Today, my family and I had to take a small trip. When I go out, I take a bottle of frozen water. As I drive or am out, the ice melts, so I have a nice supply of ice water to drink. Before going out, I eat, so I had some lunch.

I took one bite of the bar and felt like an alien was going to burst out of my stomach.

The whole trip, all I kept hearing is, "You need to eat, you need to eat." When I woke up, I made one soft boiled egg for breakfast. When done, it was, you need to eat a protein bar. Geeze. I think she wants me to be fat again. I did this so I wouldnt die in 2 years.

Then I get, 'youre losing the weight to find someone thinner and younger." Nope, not at all. I want to live past 2013 and die an old man. None of my male relatives lived past 65 years old. My father died at 57. I am now 57.

I solved the protein bar and shake problem by thowing them out the window. As I got home, it was you need to eat something. I like my weight loss and the new me and I dont care what happens, I plan on keep going down. I have learned to just say no! So no to the regular meals and the extra protein bars and shakes on top of my meals...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..

I agree with the other posts. Sounds like your wife need some assurance from you. I'm lucky in that my boyfriend is very supportive of me and the only thing he pushes is that I get my fluids and vitamins in. I probably need that push so I just tell him it is nice to have someone to worry about me. I also encourage him to read this.


Board. It has helped to understand what I'm going through. It might help your wife..

Does anyone know if there is a group for partners/spouses of GBS patients?..

IMHO... It sounds like she's scared of something. MAybe she doesn't even know what it is yet..

A friend of mine suggested this to me and it usually works... sit down with her, take her hands in yours and ask her why she is asking you to eat something all the time. Give her an opportunity to tell you what's up. I find that usually they just need to be heard, and me assuming what the cause may be is, at the very least, not the whole story and, at most, totally wrong..

Then give her the kiss! Good Luck!..
