Hi Loka! The advice I'm going to give you is not what teh general forum would suggest... but it works. I suffered from BED for 13 years. What cured it for me was changing my diet to high fruit, low fat, and allowing myself ot eat sugar when I needed it. By "sugar" I mean pure, white, refined sugar: if I get a sugar craving I have a few spoons in my tea and I dont crave it any more.
HIgh fat did not satiate me either, and eating low carb actually triggered the worst case of BED I've ever had and caused me to gain 20 lbs. I really believe that some people need a lot more carbs than others, and if you are craving sugar there's a chance that your body simply needs the carbs.
Not going to write too much more but I hope this is of some help. THere are many people like me who overcame BED simply by allowing themselves to eat sugar and fruit.
"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."
