    I hope it's possible for you, too!

    I've done several things over time that have helped, but as it turned out, all of them are part of what's called "the leptin reset,," and that particular protocol takes them one step further, and it's that step that really sealed it for me.

    Those things are dramatically increasing fat (I had bought hook, line, and sinker into the low fat lie), having at least 4oz of protein with every meal (including breakfast, and for me, it needed to be real protein, not a powder, and not plant sources), removing grains (they kept me craving for sugar, oddly enough), reducing even "good" carbs pretty dramatically for the time being, moving all sweets to meals (and the ends of them - no more random having them during the day), the usual behavioral tricks (drinking water or tea if I feel the desire to eat between meals, etc.), and finally, the one that put the nail in the coffin...

    The BIG A$$ed Breakfast. At least 50g protein (this is essentially 7 units of protein, where a unit is an ounce of meat or cheese, or an egg). That did amazing enough things for the cravings (and completely eliminated my battle against snacking), but I personally felt, even though I was bingeing only once a month instead of several times a day, that I needed to go even further, to 65g, for a while. (Even then, I felt like I could eat breakfast all over again as soon as I was done; my appetite was huge at the time - that said, when I started adding little amounts of protein to breakfast, I was not at all used to eating more than a handful of "light" cereal and skim milk.)

    After a month at that level, not only had I started feeling full after breakfast, but I no longer felt hungry for lunch, either. By that time, I realized I hadn't binged in a few weeks (since the day *before* Halloween!), and since then, my caloric intake has naturally dropped, I've reached countless weight milestones, I've made it through ALL the problem holidays without a binge, and also been able to get to the bottom of some niggling health problems (some minor, some bigger, like debilitating chronic fatigue).

    I still feel *some* desire for certain things (like a mixture of dried fruits & nuts), but revulsed by others (like a certain kind of mint candy I used to love). The things that call me no longer hound me with the incessant demand to eat them, but just kind of whisper to me, and I hear them and say, "Not now. I'm not totally healed just yet," and go about my day, and they shut up.

    It's a miracle for me.

    This journal lays it all out. It starts at the point I had 100% welcomed fat into my diet, totally rejected processed foods, rarely ate grains, ate 25g protein every morning (& lunch & dinner, too), and was down to bingeing maybe once or twice a week, or sometimes went stretches of a couple of weeks, but could not stop it altogether, could not stop snacking AT ALL (was having huge amounts of completely unsweetened yogurt & nuts even though it wasn't really enough to call a 'binge'), and was still gaining weight, even at two months postpartum.

    Aila, I missed your post! Your progress is so awesome! Think of where we both were this time last year, how difficult the whole 40s were, how we both went off track afterwards ... the cravings are getting in control, PBTG!

    It just never made sense to me that that was how I was supposed to live ... obsessed with food.

    Okay, last night I went ahead and had a sweet potato. Last time I had one, I had bloating and bad stuff for a week. AFter recent experiences with non-CO coconut products, I think it's safe to say I have a problem with coconut flesh. And sure enough, checked in my journal and last time I had that sweet potato, I had a TON of shredded coconut that day, too.

    Experiment went well - no gastro after-effects!

    Every time I'm faced with eating something that's not a daily staple, I have to go through this long list - is it a grain, dairy, legume, starchy veg, FODMAP, nut, nightshade, egg, sweetener? If no, yay, I can have it! I rarely do this successfully - the list is too long, and I forget something.

    I went through the list last night and forgot that sweet potatoes aren't on GAPS, but also forgot about total carb count. So the only reaction I seem to have had was a minor carb-woozy-head. Not bad. Lesson learned, and I do think I can have occasional sweet potatoes - say, once/month a small one.

    ETA Dang, just checked ... sweet potato is a "be careful" on the FODMAP list. Gar! Well, I didn't swell up after eating it ...

    Results
    - energy 6/10; mood 5/10.
    - bloating - bad after dinner, not surprisingly. I know there was sugar, obviously soy (unfermented), and soy sauce (= wheat, likely). Oddly, the Chinese brand sunflower seeds had artificial sweeteners & "spices" in them. It was delicious and great company, and really not appropriate to question all the ingredients or not eat (which would have been the only solution to avoid the bad stuff). I expect it will take a week to lose the bloat, weight, water, & inflamed nose
    - skin = smoother than ever
    - slept 11-8:45, interrupted by non-productive strong abdominal cramps mid-night, couldn't sleep for half hour
    - pulse ...

    - inline skated on the Greenway for 2mi each way witha swim break in between. Skated faster than the kids and lasted the whole way, so that's great! Physical exercise 2 days in a row! And tonight DH said, "If you feel the energy for it, and can get quotes for ..." He's never taken that into account before (not b/c he's callous, but bc I think neither of us really knew what was going on until lately), so that's a great sign that he's getting what's going on with me,and also celebrating the huge strides made in the last couple of weeks in energy & mood increase.
