Re: Overcoming Binge Eating????


I know exactly what you mean when you talk about "I allow myself one indulgence- I feel like something is triggered and I have to eat anything I can get my hands on and I eat until I can't move and my stomache is so full that it hurts." And then you purge... (or not, and then feel like crap for not doing it too) That is exactly what happens to me too. It's like... if I eat a cookie or something "bad" (or even what I consider "too much" at a meal) I just start to eat everything because I failed so I might as well eat a lot because I'm going to overeat and most likely (in my case) purge anyway...

You wrote that your body might stop craving things to the extent it does now... I think that's entirely possible. I no longer have the cravings I used to... but, honestly, right after my last fast I got the flu pretty bad and was very sick and puking... and I think that has helped contribute to my loss of appitite. But obviously if you don't eat for 10 days your stomach will shrink and you'll want to eat less anyway. I have a huge addiction to Sugar and the fast helped that a lot.

So, I stick by what I wrote about the fast helping me with the cycle of binging and purging. It didn't "cure" me since it's only a fast and it can't fix all of the mental aspects of this, but it did help me a little - but again, I have to warn you about restricting after the fast... just don't let that get out of hand.

By the way... during the first couple of days of the fast I had the "idea" that I could eat, but vomit... so it wouldn't count. It was actually hard to not do that, but I didn't do it and I think that getting past that was very helpful to me. And do your best to come off the fast SLOWLY. If you don't you might freak out about the weight coming back. Allow your metabolism to catch up.

If you have anymore questions, I check the board daily so feel free to post. Good luck, I know how hard it is... I really hope that you will have some benifit in that area of your life from the fast. It's definitely not fun to be on the binge answer...
