HI I am desperate for advice i keep crashing and buring :( on 80 10 10.
hi, i come from a past of anorexia,binge eating,bulimia and compulsive exercising. i first started the 80 10 10 diet a month ago to loses more wight and to not gain any wight i'm being truthful. And it worked i only eat fruit and juiced alot alot and exercised i lost wight, but was still unhappy with the results i still had a gut,and loses skin? and had terrible skin break outs on my face and hands and a emotional roller coaster happy - sad, mostly sad and zero energy and by the end of my first month i crashed and binged. felt horrible next day a new started back on the raw. i though maybe the problem was i wasn't eating enough so i trued my focus on eating more a stopped juicing and i had no energy and stopped working out then i gained wight which made me depressed. so i started juicing again and working out again got sum result but by the end of a few weeks in month two i binged again on cooked food. i feel horrible and just don't know what to do.
i cant go back to cooked food because it makes me feel horrible and it a cycle of anorexia,binge eating,bulimia and compulsive exercising.
and i feel like if i dont workout on 80 10 10 im going to just gain wight and not lose any wight because it happen.
if you want to know a normal workout for me is mon-Saturday, Sunday-rest day every morning before i eat breakfast, breakfast is usually a juice.
two hours on the treadmill thirty mints jump-rope then an hour of aerobics i tried to do less than that, but i just get anxiety about not doing the full work-out. with no energy always have to force it.
but now i just want to stop all the cycles and get health and happy like i see other who thrive on the 80 10 10 lifestyle but i just don't know what problem to fix or what i am doing wrong????
Tavia, I can so relate to your binge-purge cycle, and agree with all other comments. Totally agree with greenmama - get rid of your scale. If you can't bring yourself to throw it out - then 'lend' it to a friend or family member who really loves you and cares about you and tell them not to let you near it for at least a year until your head is in a better place...
You are a beautiful being and have so much to offer the world! Keep shifting your focus outward. Every day ask, what can I do for someone else. This will help you out of that self-obsession.
Lots of love
sounds like your screwed until you change your mindset champ.
