I've just started reading this book and it seems amazing. It's very much on the same line as Brain Over Binge - i.e. training yourself to view urges to binge as a greedy Pig.

 

You can read it for free here:

Fancy starting a reading club on this thread?

You're welcome.

 

I'm on page 10 so far. I'm savoring every page, making notes, because this seems to be a very useful book.

So i skimmed some of it but have now finished and i REALLY liked a lot of what he had to say. for instance the whole thought of “loving yourself thin” and how that’s actually one of the most counterproductive things you can do when it comes to fighting/ignoring cravings.

i am giving it a go, you? i’ve done my plan and i’ve thought things over and I WILL NEVER BINGE AGAIN. fucking serious. we’ll see how serious i am tonight during “danger time” but right now i’m feeling pretty positive and relaxed about it.

I'm now on page 35. You read fast!

 

My plan:

 

1. Atkins (max 20g carbs per day)

2. Alternative day fasting (fast day = 0-500 cals. feed day = 1000-1500 cals).

3. Do not eat until > 6pm on fast day. Do not eat until > 2pm on feed day.

4. No exceptions.

 

NEVER: Never put together a binge list of foods to buy; Never continue eating when you are fit to burst (stomach hard and painful); Never eat a whole bag of nuts in one day.

 

UNRESTRICTED: green salad, broccoli, water, green tea, black coffee.

my nevers are: i will never eat in secret. i will never eat late at night (meaning past 7pm) and never give in to my Junkie and use food to get a fix. 

 

my equivalent to the Pig is my inner Junkie. the addict that talks to me like it's my friend, but all it wants is a fix, at any cost. 

 

i solemnly swear to never get high on food again. 

he makes a lot of good points. i know most of us have already heard these things, but it's good to hear them reiterated and from new perspectives. if i say to myself, "no, i don't do that anymore." as if it's fact. it makes it somehow feel ...solid... like idk how to describe it.... it can be the same as saying "i don't steal, i don't mouth off to cops, i don't wear orange lipstick..." 

 

and i don't, i don't do any of those things. so it can be like that. i don't binge. i don't eat shit (Pig Slop) and i don't use food to get high. that's not my fix anymore. 

 

my actual food plan isn't very restrictive. having too many restrictions will get me in trouble with my family if i try to follow them. so my food plan is

- no grains except on very special occasions and NEVER grains alone

- limited dairy 

- high sugar veggies/beans and fruit only up to 3 servings per week

- everything else is unrestricted. 

 

when i am able to go back to work i can start doing OMAD again. then it will be OMAD monday through friday.

I have sustained OMAD for a long time in the past. Tempted to switch to that way of eating now that you mention it :) Does family life prevent you from doing that now?

I LOVE this book! I love it so much that I have it in both ebook and audiobook format. I just love the direct, no-nonsense approach he has to killing binges. None of that "just love yourself thin, be grateful to the universe" new age nonsense. Just 100% straight talk. If anyone can recommend any other books that have this tone, please share the titles!
