...because I cheated. Not as bad as it would have been before Medifast or maybe even the first couple of weeks on MF, but still cheatin' is cheatin'..

I had some sugar free candy for diabetics. This might have been ok (ish) had I not had about 12 or so. They were really quite yummy. Anyone ever had these things before? Then you know what comes next. Apparently there is some fine print on the back of the package that I missed when I skimmed over the numbers for calories, sodium, sugars and carbs..

I went to bed at 10 pm and woke at 2 am with mind numbing cramping in my abdomen followed by gas followed by a trip to the potty then repeated that over and over right up until the alarm clock went off at 4.

I can laugh about it now, but at the time I thought I had the flu, it felt like there was an alien in my gut trying his best to claw his way out! I even went to the doctors! Thank goodness for google. I went home from the doctors (who were not helpful btw, just gave me some meds and sent me on my way) and reflected on what could possibly have made me so sick. DING! I googled it then looked at the back of the bag. 'Taking more than the recommended serving may have the same result as a laxative.' Turns out 1 serving is 3 pieces of candy, so yeah, eat 4 times that and you will have an alien in your gut too!.

A feel a little better now that I've reported myself. If it's been said once on these boards, it's been said a thousand times, please learn from my mistake and don't do this to yourself, it's soooooo not worth it..

Cheers ~ Carrie..

Good thing you got right back in the saddle. Just a good reminder...we all need to take it "one day at a time"!..

I did that years ago. Bought and ate almost a whole bag of sugar free candy. Well, it was so nasty I couldn't even stand to be in the same room with myself. That was the last time I ever ate sugar free candy. It is simple not worth it...

Comment #2

Oh yeah! That candy can give some wicked stomach aches and bad bouts of diarrhea. YIKES!!!!..

Comment #3

LOL! my husband did the same thing awhile back!..

Comment #4

LOLOLOL!! been there , done that! even the cat shot me looks of disgust!..

Comment #5

I had to laugh not at you but come on how many people are going to stop at three peices of candy. This has to happen a lot if there is a warning on the candy and to me it would make me never want to buy it again.

I wonder if a lot of sugar free chocolate has this problem?..

Comment #6

Carrie - so sorry... thanks for taking one for the team in order to provide a "learning moment".

I hope you feel better today...

Comment #7

Oh poor least after that experience you will be much less likely to splurge with sugar free candy again....

Today is a new day...get back on the OP horse and get to galloping!!..

Carrie! I am laughing now! I know just how horrible it is! Once I ate 1and one half a pkg. of sugar free coffee candies on my way to a meeting. I was wearing a skirt which felt loose. Within one hour, my stomach and gut had bloated so much that it was many inches too big for the skirt, even unzipped! The ensuing gas was unbelievable. It was so embarrassing to constantly have to get up and excuse myself to use the restroom during the meeting. I will never eat a sugar free candy again, EVER!!..
