30 Bananas a Day!

HCV lifestyle really helps overcoming bulimia!

I started my vegan journey four weeks ago. It made a lot of sense to me, since I had never enjoyed eating meet. I thought giving up dairy would be a liitle bit hard, but it was not.

After a couple of days I have already noticed a huge difference in my mood. For the first time in the last 4,5 years, I felt CALM and JOYFULL. I came from a past of calorie restriction and daily binge/purge behaviours.

At the begining, I was sure eating like this would occupy a lot of time, but I actually noticed the opposite. Before HCV every single one of my thoughts was about food: what could/should/would /couldn't/shouldn't/wouldn't eat. My brain was screaming ”I need carbs!”, but I diddn't listen because I was afraid of gaining weight. Now I actually can and have the energy to think about other things.

I guess I was  really lucky for not gaining any weight since I started HCV (58 kg at 169 cm), even if I have twice as much calories (I used to restrict to under 1000, now I eat 2000+, I'm still increasing the numbers until I will reach 3000). I didn't lose weight eighter, but I'm sure my body-fat percentage decreased and my metabolism was accelerated.

To sum up, 4 weeks of healthy diet, no binge/purge behaviour, feeling stronger, happier.

4 Weeks of being ALIVE again!

I wrote this post hoping that someone having an ED sees it and feels encouraged to replace it with this awesome lifestyle.

I would also like to thank every single person in this comunity for being part of my recovery environment, which supports me and answers all my questions when in doubt. :) THANK YOU!

Hi, Jeanne! Congradulations for not giving up and for choosing a vegan lifestyle! I am sure happy- no purge months and years are soon to come for you. One of the most important things I've learned in the past 4 years is "Always be kind to yourself." We are still learning our lessons, but I am sure there is no way back to the frustrating and sad life we had before HCV, for neither one of us. Big hugs!

It helped me to read your post arinna, I am also fighting with eating and purge and after finding raw food and veganism I still purge sometimes but not everyday, but I know that I am in the right direction. Thanks.
