This sounds great. I have binged horribly the past week while being extremely stressed over taking the PLT exam. I also ate a huge meal from Chili's today along with a few other bad items...3 fried cheese sticks, a full rack of BBQ ribs, a side of fries, a side of cinnamon apples, 3 glasses of sweet tea, a peanut butter cookie with chocolate icing, a yo-plait light blueberry pie yogurt, and a hot fudge sundae with a lot of whip cream. Tomorrow is a new day and the start of a binge-free week

OK ladies, I need a clarification definition please.
In your own words, please give a definition of the following, in terms of food and diet:

Cheating:
Binging:


Is there a difference on the 3FC forums for these 2 things? In your own personal life?
I think “yes”. I am trying to distinguish when I am “cheating” on my plan versus when I am “binging” on my plan.

Thanks all

"Binge" gets thrown around haphazardly here. A lot of people will say "omg I had a burger I binged" but in my opinion a binge warrants some kind of "out of control" feeling and eating a LOT of something.

1.) Someone on Atkins eats a burger on a bun at a picnic and some potatoes. They stop, feel guilty, and go back to plan. --> cheat

2.) After a bad day, someone who counts calories eats an entire bag of chocolates, and then goes to the store to buy a jar of peanut butter and eats the whole thing. The next day they struggle with cravings despite still feeling sick. --> binge

I nearly binged. I did go over my cal limit, making a stirfry to quell the cravings, but its better than if I binged. Its this strange mindset that I get into, where I feel a weird glee about it, like I'm breaking a rule (I love being a glutton ugh) and also I feel kinda robotic.
So strange because I feel like I've been falling off the bandwagon, I've had temptations, stronger temptations before but I never let them get to me. Well, whatever, I am just going to be more firm with myself. I think that its because my scale has not been moving, what a bummer. However, I haven't pooed in 2 days, even after the bran on Saturday, altho I've been drinking SOO much water. Oh well, it will pass.

Cheat: Eating a food that I might usually avoid because of my lifestyle change or eating a certain food that I usually limit because it is high in fat/calories...

Binge-uncontrolled eating usually triggers by intense feelings of guilt, stress, past issues.....I usually consume large quantities of food in a short period of time, done in secret, kinda the eat mindlessly actually more like the gorge on food without appreciating or tasting....

day 14 coming to an end.....I am off to bed, today has been an emotional day and I am done with it....
Hoping to day 15 tmr...goodnight everyone.....

This is exactly how I feel preceding and during a binge. It almost feels freeing to throw caution to the wind and stuff junk food in my face but in fact it strengthens the shackles tying my self-worth to food and weight issues.

Today is Day 247 for me.

I've noticed that my snacking has picked up a bit over the last week. It's not enough for me to be really worried but it's become enough for me to notice and have to post about it.

It's the snacking in the evenings. I have an unusually stressful month last month and as I am trying to come back down to my normal levels, I've noticed JUST how much snacking I've been doing in the evenings. I broke the chain last night and didn't snack on anything at all but WOW could I feel the pull toward the cabinets!

Just wanting to put it out there for the world to see and to be accountable for it. Thanks guys!

Hi, everyone! I have had issues with binge-eating, and thought that it was OVER...

I binged on Saturday night (entire pizza plus two bowls of cereal all while not hungry at all).

I don't know why, especially since I thought that I had conquered this, since I hadn't binged in months.

So, I'm here to own up to it, and to start a new binge-free cycle.

Today is day 4. Trying a new approach which is to NOT diet. Eating 3 meals a day --no more than that because otherwise i'm always thinking about food. I'll eat as much i need in order to be full...PHYSICALLY not mentally. Food is to fill a physical need not a mental. I think i binge because of the way food makes my brain feel. Well i have FINALLY realized it's not supposed to make my brain feel anything at all. It's supposed to just satisfy my stomach. If my stomach feels hungry i can eat more.

It's kind of liberating to not be on a diet...so much that it really has taken away any urge to binge (so far). I don't have this stress that i'm going over my calories...i know i can eat what i need, and then stop there.
