Does anyone suffer from binge eating? I need a friend!
My body has been telling me for a long time that this woe is right for me. I used to diet and do chronic cardio and starved myself quite thin. One day, I found myself in a stressed out situation, and decided to have a piece of pie. It led me to eat the entire thing. Ever since then, this has become a pretty regular occurrence for me. I LOVE eating clean and healthy foods, but it seems that I can never go more than 3-4 days without a sugar binge. I am talking large quantities.

The weight I have gained and the loss of self control has taken a huge psychological toll on me. I don't even like to go in public because none of my clothes fit anymore.

I just really need an accountability partner to help me. If I could make it past the initial 1-2 weeks, I think I would be OK. If anyone has any advice on how to de-tox I could really use the help!
Thanks a lot!
