I had Anorexia for two years before I ever binged for the first time. I think honestly, I think it is guaranteed to happen at some point for anyone who restricts their intake. You might be able to last year's but it will eventually happen imo.


Yeah I was the same. Never binged and then suddenly was bulimic.

High restricting is the way for me because slow and steady wins the race. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you end the day on a calorie deficit, you have won.

Yes I had some big binges before, but never purged. Sometines during weekends I lose control and have big meals and binge, specially when I'm having lunch whith my family.
Feeling guilty kills my mind but when I do I just can't stop that moment. Despite that I've been diagnosed with AN manybyrs ago and guess I'm still AN. Maybe not because of my body but because of my attitude and some characteristics I show.

Technically a binge isn't based on what you eat or how much. A binge is when you feel you lost control over eating.

It can be 300 cals or 30,000 cals.

Ah. I’ve never personally totally lost control. Once or twice, but not recently. Recently I’ve been able to say “oh ok, you went over your cal limit”, feel kinda guilty about that, but I don’t really feel like my hands are out of my control.

I think what you’re talking about would be the difference between a subjective and objective binge. An objective binge would be eating a shockingly large amount of food, a subjective one is like the 300 calories thing you said.

Ohh. When you put it that way, it makes a lot of sense. Yes it can be seen a few ways cant it.

Yes, binging is a biological response to food restriction, your body is doing all it can to get you to eat and sometimes it the urge is too strong. If you purge following the binge, it's anorexia b/p. I don't really purge following a binge, although sometimes I do fast if it fits my plans. Hope it's all going OK, try not to feel less valid as other people have said, there is nothing in the criteria for AN that forbids binging.

technically yes, but most of the time what we consider a "binge" doesn't even come close to what a binge looks like for people with bulimia/BED

binging is a completely normal and natural side effect of eating under your tdee for a long time. binging doesn’t make you a fake anorexic. it’s your starving body’s way of making up for all those lost nutrients. it’s nothing to be ashamed of. we all do it.
