For most of my life so far, I've struggled with minor compulsive eating issues... even though I'm eating more and more low fat raw vegan each day, I still have moments where I just lose control and binge on both raw AND cooked food.
For example, right now I'm literally laying on the floor as I write this. I'm super bloated because I had some wild rice (cooked, yes, I know..), and sprouted grain tortillas (also cooked), and some raw tabouli. Did I stop there? Nope. I had about 20 dates and almost two whole apples. Plus, right before this meal I gorged on dried fruit.
Any advice? I feel like such a fatty and I really want to stop having these "binge days" but I just lose control.
(By the way, I'm 5'1, 140 pounds, wishing to be 120 or below.)
That's good to hear. I found I had to address the compulsive eating before I could stick to any diet, didn't matter what it was. But the beautiful thing was that I found once I did address it, my whole life opened up in a beautiful way. I realised that my whole life had revolved around food and weight obsession and that my relationships, career and everything was really suffering. When I addressed it I was then able to follow 801010 (with periods of fully raw and very high raw) and more importantly, get on with my life.
Best of luck on your journey. :)
