    Binge! Help!?

    Primal Fuel
    (Primal for a long long time with not primal binges)
    BLAAAAAAAH!
    I successfully completed one week of a leptin reset! WOOHOO! Then I decided to eat some chocolate, and pretty soon I could not stop. An extra large hershey (Dark). This started my first primal binge.
    TONS of Brussel Sprouts, Tons of eggs, Fruit, Chicken, Lots of carbs.... I feel so disappointed in myself. I look about 15 pounds heavier too. In my thighs?!!?!?

    I'm mostly venting. But I hate when this crap happens. It was so uncontrollable! Trust me I tried. I went on a small sprint. I feel like I've gained a million pounds. BAH! Well.... While the night is young any tips? Hints, advice, comfort?

    You are not alone. I do the same thing sometimes. Seems less and less often lately, though. With me it's ovulation and pms hormones driven.
    You are probably going to feel less hungry tomorrow and subsequently going to eat less. Don't sweat it. Just move on. Believe tomorrow's gonna be a better day.

    Either forgive yourself and start over, or invest in some duct tape......

    Is my leptin reset compromised...? Am I holding onto my carbs?

    Stop buying the trigger foods. Don't use it as a gateway to start eating badly again. Do a lot of cardio to get rid of the glycogen and water bloat. Stop hating yourself.

    Yeah, duct tape. It's the cure all for any type of house repair, bike repair..shed repair.....anything that needs holding together could use some duct tape. If you can't control your binging, get some duct tape and tape the pie hole :-)

    Yes. Tape your hands together or your mouth shut. Then you can't put food into it. That said, I think Louisa was joking. These things happen. As Louisa also said, forgive yourself and start over.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    I most certainly am not hating myself.
    And the occasional chocolate is fine. I hadn't expected it to trigger me.
