On the eating fruit all day, that is ridiculous. How can you fuel your body on just fruit. I spent nearly a decade with issues with binging. It was because I'd eat little to nothing. Literally, I'd starve myself to be "thin", plus exercise. Then after some time, I'd binge because my body was starving. I could binge on anything junk, healthy food, didn't matter...Before all my pregnancies, I usually weighed about 160 lbs, still over weight. I'd lose 10-20 pounds then put it all back on super fast from binging.
Its took a lot of healing and time, but I stopped dieting, after my 2nd baby. I eat clean and run and weight lift. I was able to maintain a lower weight than I did with all the dysfunctional dieting. But I also wasn't "thin", I was fit.
I'll have the baby weight to lose, but I'm fitter now than I was when I was just starving and binging in my 20s. I jut stopped running about 2 weeks ago, but I am biking and walking (which is kind of boring to be honest!) and I am still weight lifting.
I eat a balanced, clean diet. I make sure every meal has a protein in it and a veggie. Bit I also each whole grains, some dairy like plain yogurt and fruits. And fats like coconut oil or nuts.
I don't know what kind of plans you all are following. I can only comment on what I used to do. Since I stopped all that "gotta be skinny" bs and started aiming to be fit, I don't binge anymore and (when not pregnant) I can maintain a lower weight, BUT I also don't need to try to get down to a really low weight. Because I am toned now, so while I maintain a higher weight, I am actually in a smaller pants size.
