Sorry, I don't have a lot of time, but I wanted to address you first paragraph veggie: If you were at one time, cutting calories for the purpose of losing weight, and eating below what your body needed to maintain it's processes, even if that was only a few hundred calories/day, and you experienced reactive eating as a result (bingeing and strong cravings for food), then, I beg to differ, and your body does too, that you were "starving."
Starving does not have to mean emaciated or weighing 90lbs. If you were 200lbs and dieted unnaturally down to 150lbs through restriction, that is still starving the body. The body still catabolized on itself.
