This is precisely the point, what does it matter what method each person follows as long as they can follow it happily and with good results? Why is it so important to start threads claiming XYZ methods don't work only for the purpose of criticizing? Someone is not "right" just because they talk the most and the loudest.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
