What do?

I wanna puke (I can’t physically). I ate around 800-1000 calories in 45 minutes (I’m scared to actually count how many) It hurts so bad me. I had already eaten 788 calories today. This is an utter nightmare.

And I’m already bloated because of my period. What can I do? This is terrible. I can’t fast (living with parents) and I’m scared this turns into a binge cycle

best thing to do is just move on ! 

 

continue doin what you were normally doing previously. whenever i binged, and then tried to super heavy restrict or fast the next day, it just sent me into another binge which became a vicious cycle. i know it sucks, but try not to worry too much and try to return to your normal flow

it sucks but at that point the only answer rly is trying to find something else that works for you. if you're at like 700cals a day or sum shit rn, definitely try and bump it up closer to your TDEE until you find something that works more comfortably with you, or check out the challenge n competition thread here! for some reason joining a challenge always whips my ass into shape lmao

Yes!!

I so definitely agree with this!

Just pick up where you left off before the binge and keep going.

Trying to undo the binge is major red flag danger zone for getting stuck in a binge cycle.

Yeah I remember what it's like clearly which is why I wanted to also show you that this is the best way out of it. I don't want you to fall into the cycle. I know how awful it is.

Mostly just riding it out - trying to just chill and reminding myself that a reset Monday is coming up and I can start my restriction again with slightly higher calories to hopefully stop further binges 🤞🏻

Alright sounds like your doing the best thing. Remember it's ok to eat even at maintenance while trying to get out of a binge cycle. I find it works best for me than just a slight increase in restricting calories.

Thank you so much, this was like a literal sign for me atm, I can’t stop thinking about food. I’ve eaten 806 calories today and I’m just really feeling like I’m gonna eat and that scares me

What is your TDEE?

For me, sometimes if the binges are really strong, to get out of a binge cycle it's best to eat at maintenance for a coupe weeks. Scary as hell I know but it WORKS.

You may even need to start at just above maintenance I'd your binges are more than maintenance. But aim for maintenance. It gives you a break that you desperately need. Once your system has calmed down, you can slowly, very slowly restrict again.

Really really good advice, thank you 😊 I think I went too hard on my restriction and I need to ease into it more gently.

Yeah I use to do that ALL the time. And if it didn't work, I always thought I needed to lower my calories even more. So it was a constant downward spiral that is absolute hell to get out of.

I promise I wouldn't be saying something like 'eat at maintenance' lightly because I know how hard that is. It really does make a big difference though and is worth the mental struggle of doing it.

But it would be less food than a binge really.

I know it's hard and scary but it does work! It honestly does.

You have to realise that before you can get control back over your eating, you need to get your brain calmed down first. The body reacts to the brain. So no point starting to try and control your body right now. It wont work.

Focus on eating at maintenance. If you are scared about weight gain, then stay off the scale for 2-3 weeks (trust me this makes it much easier!) Just until your body adjusts.

If you eat at maintenance and the scale goes up, it shows ALL of it is food and fluid so it's not even real weight. It's temporary. Which means it will come off before you know it.

It's hard and scary and hell but I promise you, it works and it's so worth it to feel like your not about to rip your head off from all the stressand torment of a binge cycle.

It took me 20 years to realise this and if I get stuck in a binge cycle (which is very rare for me) I do exactly as I've just told you to do.
