    Are We Supposed to Binge?

    Primal Fuel
    I've read many threads here about people who just can't stop binge-eating.
    In my new work I fast through my shifts, come back home, work-out a bit and stuff myself with food
    I'm wondering, are we wired to do so? I'm positive that we're not supposed to snack all day. When I'm busy, I'm just not that hungry.

    Yes. From what I understand people who have done the "Warrior Diet" have thought a lot about this. Might be something you'd be interested in.

    Of course we're wired to binge. The reason that Grok didn't binge himself into Jabba the Hutt is because he usually didn't have anything to binge on. Which is why he binged in the first place. He never knew when he'd find the next honeycomb or apple tree.

    Put Grok in a Safeway and he'd be obese within a year.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    I don't even give him a year. 6 months, easy. Don't let him out of the junk food aisle, lol.

    "Binging" appears to be a survival instinct and storage of fat in our bodies is meant to help us to survive in difficult times, so it is normal, yes. But it is also possible to avoid it and overrule what is "natural"...

    Yes, but only rarely. It's not too often that there existed the opportunity. It was only recently that food, and specifically, very high energy-dense food, became so easy and cheap to get.
