    Low carb is not an issue assuming you are eating plenty of veg. The body needs some glucose but the body functions fins on ketones.
    Keep in mind high carb/high grain = high sugar.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Ayla, seriously: you don't eat enough. Below your BMR is generally a bad idea. You'll just screw your metabolism up in the long term.
    So you suggest I make myself eat even when not hungry?
    This is not something I want to do as a former binger

    Low carb is not an issue assuming you are eating plenty of veg and getting plenty of calories. The body needs some glucose but the body functions fine on ketones AND can easily create all the glucose it needs.
    Keep in mind high carb/high grain = high sugar.

    Sorry about the double post.
    But as others have said best to ignore zach

    Its funny that all of you need to remind her that im the troll just because i am giving her an answer she doesnt want to hear but she knows is right.

    Dont worry, im well aware you wont listen to me, Ayla. Just remember this in a few months when your health is much worse and you are in a binge. PM me if you ever want some help.

    Absolutely. You do realise you need the calories to keep your body running, right? There's no point in eating below your BMR, in fact, odds are that will hinder your process. You may lose weight, sure, but you will inevitably gain it back when you start eating more or - hell, even the same - due to the loss of LBM. So you'll lose weight consisting of both fat and muscle, then gain more weight of mostly fat. I don't think you want that.
    I don't see what the problem here, is. According to your sig, your current weight is 105 KG. Well, I'm 54-55KG and would LOSE weight sitting on my arse all day doing nothing at 17-1800kcal. What exactly have you got against eating more? Eating is fun.

    There's a big difference between eating more food and binge eating - which is classified as an eating disorder. Similarly, there's a difference between losing weight at a reasonable caloric deficit and losing weight via anorexic tendencies, ie, starvation.

    Do I suggest eating a bit more ver jumping from one disorder to the opposite extreme? Hell freaking yes.
