I agree that this is a great way to get control and perspective. I seem to do really good with rules, but I have a hard time enforcing them on my own, so having a set time and specific rules is easy. I have a huge problem with binging too, so I'm really excited to hear it's helped you in that respect. But I always know which foods will trigger them and still was torturing myself by buying those foods in the first place, ugh! Lately I have really learned to love cooking, but that was a huge trial-and-error process to begin with. If all else fails, I throw some avocado on it
and yeah, I am not doing nuts either, but I sure think about them anyway...in the not-so-distant past I've gone through entire jars of almond butter in a very short window of time, oops. Feeling lighter and so much more satisfied on good hearty food and no binges, it feels so great to say that too.
