  • Are We Supposed to Binge?

    I've read many threads here about people who just can't stop binge-eating.
    In my new work I fast through my shifts, come back home, work-out a bit and stuff myself with food
    I'm wondering, are we wired to do so? I'm positive that we're not supposed to snack all day. When I'm busy, I'm just not that hungry.

    Everything is bad for something - How do you feel today?

    Yes. From what I understand people who have done the "Warrior Diet" have thought a lot about this. Might be something you'd be interested in.

      Of course we're wired to binge. The reason that Grok didn't binge himself into Jabba the Hutt is because he usually didn't have anything to binge on. Which is why he binged in the first place. He never knew when he'd find the next honeycomb or apple tree.

      Put Grok in a Safeway and he'd be obese within a year.

        +1 and a chuckle.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          I don't even give him a year. 6 months, easy. Don't let him out of the junk food aisle, lol.

            "Binging" appears to be a survival instinct and storage of fat in our bodies is meant to help us to survive in difficult times, so it is normal, yes. But it is also possible to avoid it and overrule what is "natural"...

              Yes, but only rarely. It's not too often that there existed the opportunity. It was only recently that food, and specifically, very high energy-dense food, became so easy and cheap to get.
