    Well my bro traded in drinking first for AA meetings and now for skydiving. He has a very addictive personality.

    Yea i may get frustrated with what i perceive as weakness. I will try to judge less and understand more.

      I don't think that everyone would be able to do that, but I do think that some people can. I believe, from personal experience, that full recovery IS possible. If some people need to permenantly think of themselves as addicts--whether food addicts or [insert your favorite substance] addicts--in order to keep from slipping back into old habits, then that's fine. But I tend to feel that holding on to the "addict" label means that you can never truly move on. I think it's self-defeating--or whatever you call it, the opposite of empowering, I guess--to subscribe to the belief that you can never fully recover.

      I was a bulimic for 6 years (from 11 to 17; 11! if you can believe it). I consider myself fully recovered. That doesn't mean that I never binge. I was just saying on another thread that sometimes on a weekend day, I'll consume 3500-4000 calories. That's some serious overeating, but do I ever feel like I'm going to spiral out of control? Nope. Not even close.

        I agree with you - recovery is totally possible! Congrads on your success

        I do think a person needs to accept they have a problem before they can move on.
        "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

        In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

          Yes. I have only binged once in my life. It was while I was fully Primal. And it was on beef, lamb, chicken and pork.

          The first time I went to Fogo de Chao, the greatest place on Earth, I ate AT LEAST 5 lbs of meat. It was awful. I have never eaten so much food in my entire life. I could not stand up straight. I was in so much pain for about 2 hours. But it was sooooo good. And I did it on purpose.

          However, I'd never do it again. It was too painful. Damn meat. It's so addictively delicious.

              Yeah, I've binged and on really stressful days, I find myself doing it again. It's always been a coping mechanism of sorts for me. Back in my pre-primal days, I would binge when things got rough at school -- tests, projects, drama, what have you -- and usually do it after dinner, in the middle of the night. I'd eat till I felt so full I was gonna puke, pass out in bed, wake up the next morning, skip breakfast, and try to survive till lunch.

              It was pretty bad. Got worse in college when I had free reign to buy and eat whatever I wanted (with my limited budget of course). I would procrastinate doing the work and then when the work HAD to be done, I'd go buy a couple of two liters of Dr. Pepper, two boxes of knock off pop tarts, and a box of pizza then stay up all night eating and working. It would take me the next two days to feel "normal" again. Pretty effed up.

              Since I've gone Primal, my binging is pretty much gone too. Usually once a month or two I'll dip back into it, but it's not as bad as it was before ... I can actually stop myself after awhile as opposed to as before when I was just cramming shit down my throat without a thought. I think about it now. So, yeah, I've binged.

              But Primal has helped that a lot and maybe one day it won't happen anymore. We'll see.
