    Eating is out of control

    I am bipolar, and newly diagnosed. When I am manic, I can not stop eating. Yesterday, I ate a box of cereal, a whole bag of pretzels, a bag of rice cakes, and 2 bananas. Is this part of manic episode? I've gained about 20 pounds in the last couple months.

    Are you taking meds? I have found different meds cause various levels of eating. I also went through the 20 lb gain on remeron. The things I found that helped were to try a different med, but in the same class. I also changed what I eat. The sugars and light carbs cause spikes in insulin levels. Therefore I stay away from sugars/process foods and eat more whole grain products. This does not stop the cravings, but does help.

    I have gained weight but I really don't care. I think I am in a destructive mood in which being fat makes me feel more sorry for myself. I am depressed. Even if it is the meds that are making me so hungry I think I could control this urge if I was happy, but as I am extremelly sad I don't care.
