: Ok, tell me how weird this is. I seem to have a binge eating/anorexic eating disorder! I work out everyday for 2 hours... I am 17, 5'9", and 125 lbs, which is fine. I used to be fat, but I lost the weight. I eat healthy all week, and during a normal day, I only consume around 800-900 calories, followed by the workouts... then, each Friday, i eat until I am about to EXPLODE! I can't stop eating! It started when I decided to reward myself for a healthy week by eating my fav foods on Friday, but now, since I crave them so much by Friday, I want to fit as much as I can in my body. I make myself absolutely SICK! Then all week, I work to lose the weight I gain from my binge- so on Saturdays, I weigh about 128, and on Friday mornings, I weigh about 121- EVERY week is the same. I just want to be able to control myself on Fridays-- i can on all the other days, why must I binge to a painful point? If anyone can help me, or has this problem- E mail me please- email@example.com
: Thanks, Katie
Your body is trying to reach a balnce...you create dthis pendulum effect.
Instead of trying to live on so few calories all week, which is dangerous, by the way,
instead eat more vegetables! They are not going to make you fat, They will just supply
needed nutrients and fiber!
Eat all the vegs you want, just avoid corn as it is a simple carb.
You will meet your needs and not feel like binging on the weekend so much.
Reward yourself by very small portions of dessert occasionally two or three times a
week, but not at the same time. Don't make it a specific habit.
On the weekends, if craving, only eat vegetables, and be sure to eat a lot.
Yhey are not fattening at all.
