Try reading The Carbohydrate Addicts Book. It changed my son's life and is much more flexible and liveable than Atkins'. Same principal though.

Good luck to you! Be good to yourself.

: I haven't been able to find help for my problem because people either don't believe me or don't take me seriously. They think I am lying about it because they don't think I look fat at all.

: I am 5'9" tall and weigh 135lbs. I work out with a personal trainer (my boyfriend, actually) three times per week and I also run in races when the weather is nicer.

: In some ways, I take good care of myself. I do my hair and makeup everyday. I try to look nice, smell nice, etc...but I also do something really destructive. I binge.

: If I buy a box of crackers, chances are good I will eat the whole box in one sitting. Same thing with chips (so I rarely buy them). I eat loads of pasta, rice, popcorn. I just have this need to eat until I am stuffed. I hate it! I have never been able to make myself throw up and wouldn't want to.

: I don't look REALLY fat, but I have a bit of a stomach that makes me really uncomfortable. I have always had body image problems (or at least since I got hips at 13!) and they seem to get worse every time I binge.

: Sorry this is so long. I am really looking for input from anyone who knows how I feel or anyone who has had success in stopping this behaviour.

: I have been in counselling and I have been on antidepressants. I have read pretty much every book on the subject and even though I understand the theories put out, I can't seem to put the behaviour into practice.

: Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks:)
