Hello there, so I am not really that new...
I have been trying to eat primal for about six months. The problem is binge eating. I really want to break my carb addiction and I have found that going cold turkey is probably going to be my best bet since I cannot, for the life of me, stop at just one treat (so I have gained a lot of weight recently instead of lost). I have been trying to go the cold turkey route but what happens is I get very hungry no matter how much meat and fat I eat. I can eat 4000 calories of meat (I am a girl) and still feel tired and hungry and my body is just screaming for sugar! I think that this might be hypoglycemia. I bought a glucose meter and I will be trying it out tomorrow to see.
Is this normal carb withdraw? Is is hypoglycemia? How do I bring my sugar up without eating something that triggers bingeing? I will start trying a piece of fruit to see if it makes me feel better without binging but I am worried it won't work either. (I have tried chromium, starting 5-HTP tomorrow... I have seasonal depression too... and of course I have tried eating more meat and fat and nothing is working).
Or we can skip trying to eat fruit or a cracker and you can just tie me to a chair for two weeks to keep me from eating everything in the fridge in attemmpt to take away the miserable withdraw feelings (anybody?).
Anything helps. Thank you.
