Does anybody else restrict calories for a while and then binge and regret it to the point that they cant sleep or smile for the next week??June 27, 2014 5:01 am at 5:01 am #1021635ihearMember
Bh no but its sounds like ur going through alot of pain I would suggest two things 1) continue to seek advice from ppl who have gone through something like this 2)a therapist could really help u identify the underlying issue at play here and give u tools to fix it seeing one for even only one or two sessions can help a tremendous amount.

Thanks ihear for your reply. I actually do see a therapist and the reason im asking this question here is to see if there’s anyone else in the same boat.June 27, 2014 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1021637golferParticipant
Business, in addition to seeing your therapist, it might be a good idea for you to get a recommendation for a good endocrinologist. It’s popular in our culture to look at people who are overweight as weak and having no self control. The problem is not always that they spend their days and nights stuffing their faces with burgers, fries, and chocolate chip cookies. You may have a physiological issue in addition to, or absent, a psychological issue. It’s possible that your body doesn’t regulate properly, or balance, the hormones that make you feel hungry or satisfied. When you restrict calories you get so terribly hungry that you end by bingeing.June 27, 2014 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #1021638ihearMember
Would u consider it a eating addiction/disorder cause if u know what it is a whole new group of people may be able to relate to you (eg;addicts even in other areas)bec u may not find somebody with this exact issue but still these ppl can give great supportJune 27, 2014 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm #1021639
Yes, I would consider it an eating disorder.June 27, 2014 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #1021640rationalfrummieMember

Starving and bingeing obviously are not part of a good diet plan. OCCASIONALLY holding off on eating a meal because you want to have, say, an ice cream sundae, so you decide to conserve your calories at THAT time in favor of the “good stuff,” does not mean you habitually starve yourself and then binge on fattening foods. And I hope you are not bingeing and purging (by vomiting or using laxatives), as that can damage your esophagus, your tooth enamel, and your heart.
If you have a problem of this nature, PLEASE speak to a professional about it, one who specializes in eating disorders, and not rely on the advice of well-meaning strangers (even mine)on a blog. This is serious stuff, and not to be treated lightly. I would go so far as to say it is pikuach nefesh. If you know someone in this matzav, pelase encourage that person to seek help.
