It does help! In a way, I can use this to hold myself accountable and everyone is so encouraging. Having people to confess to, that understand helps to lift the burden. I'm so thankful for everyone here!
B vitamins help with stress too... Do you take a b supplement?
The tri-chromium helps your body use insulin and it also has cinnamon in it which does the same. I forgot what niacinamide does... Lol! Derp can answer that question. Those are the supps I take at lunch so it was just habit. It also helped me feel as if I was cutting of the binge by doing something healthy.
No-Salt is another bad habit I need to nix. Yeah, it's the pink Himalayan sea salt. Is that the right kind? Or the grey?
I use the celtic gray stuff, it has more flavor and the pink color is from oxidized iron which some say isnt good.
Anyway, I totally agree that some binges are caused by low blood sugar. Sometimes this can be triggered by stress, or sometimes poor quality foods. Sometimes too many carbs can do it for me. I'm glad that you drank some water and managed to separate yourself.
I also recommend trying sparkling water, coconut water and taking a magnesium supp. One time I really wanted to binge on cashew nuts, took a mg supp, and the urge was gone. It's a complicated thing, and it's not always psychological.
Hugs to you <3
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

I've read a few posts on MDA about rt3. I think it's a possibility I may have an issue. I was on T4 only meds up until Oct. 2012. My rt3 ratio result is 8.9, (that's from back in Oct). I have no idea what that means.
If I do have a rt3 issue, I'm pretty sure can be cleared up with T3 only... I'm on NDT, a combination of all the T's but it's mainly T3. I haven't had my rt3 checked since Oct and I didn't know that I needed to. If this is what's going on, it would explain so much! I'm tempted to just go ahead and order the Cynomel.
All this thyroid stuff!! Just when I think I've got it figured out... I realize I don't. But at least I keep pressing on.
Everyday, I leave the gym drenched in sweat. Last summer I could hardly break a sweat even after sprints.... I had very, very low T3 then. I can remember having chills alot last summer. I feel really warm all the time and I'm not that sensitive to cold and heat... so that's good too. I wonder if it has a little to do with the warm weather...
I've noticed that when I eat 4oz of goat cheese for a meal that my pulse rate goes up more than other meals.
My nails are growing like crazy. I have anywhere from 1 TBS to 4 TBS of gelatin a day. Maybe it's a combo of improved thyroid hormone levels, the gelatin and the Metanx.
Definitely order cynomel. Doctors carelessly prescribe synthroid(t4), especially to women, who already have a more difficult time converting t4 into t3 because of hormones.
