You'd think fruit was the equivalent of a McDonald's Caramal sundae the way some people treat it. For all that *may* be bad about it, there is so much more good about it!

    Fruit is every bit as good for your body as meat and vegetables.
    That's just it--people forego fruit and eat meat and vegetables only, not necessarily better or worse, but because it's perceived as better because of fructose. That's why I put it in quotations. "healthier."

    No, you won't get scurvy from foregoing fruit.

      Actually, you can go forever without fruit and be just fine.

        After you purge your pantry try intermittent fasting. Eat as primal as possible in a 5 hour window and fast the other 19 hours.

          And I know people who have gone forever without meat or fish and they are fine. I know a woman, she's probably 80 by now....has been a vegetarian since her 20's. Lovely, healthy and with it woman.

              There are some really good advice on here.

              I feel for you. I binged for like 4 months and it really sucked.

              But yeah, maybe you need more carbs? The leptin reset might help too. I'm not following the leptin reset exaclty. But ever since I've been eating 3 times a day with the meals 4 or 5 hours apart, no snacking, no food after 6pm, I've had no binge urges. Thank you GOD! And I even eat fruit. Like 2 to 3 servings everyday.

              Have you read Mindful Eating: The Art of Being Present at the Dinner Table yet?

              I read The Beck Diet Solution. It helped.

              I actually weighed myself everyday. I worked on letting go of the feelings I was feeling when I saw the number. Letting go can be difficult, it takes practice. I'm still weighing myself everyday and it's not messing me up.

              I'm reading Change Anything by Kerry Patterson. It is teaching me how to not fall into the "willpower trap". It's not only about losing weight by the way. Great book.

              Good luck!

                Fill yourself up with appropriate foods. I find if I'm at my parents house, and I'm hungry, its very hard to resist snacking on non ideal foods like peanut butter with hydrogenated fats or milk chocolate. So as long as I'm full of something else, its much easier to ignore.
