Hi Callison, I saw your original post on binging and I really feel your pain. If you've read any of my journal you'll probably see that I agree with Grumpycakes and Zach. Personally restriction did not work for me, and going low carb was an absolute disaster in terms of binging and subsequent weight gain But - if you feel this is what you need to do then I support your decision to try it. I know some people here have overcome binging with HFLC.
Just one suggestion I would make is to really look at the potential reasons that you are driven to binge. Is it emotional? Are you addicted to junk food? Is it due to deprivation and restriction?
If you believe it's an addiction to junk food then you may consider just cutting sweets and replacing them with a balanced diet (including carbs) - no restriction "types" of food until you've gotten the sweets out of your system (takes a few weeks). I would seriously advise not trying to lose weight until you deal with the binging problem - it will just take you further down the rabbit hole.
Lots of people will have different views on this, and maybe different things work for different people. Keep an open mind and try one thing at a time Good luck!
"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."
