Returning to LC after long time EDNOS;bulimia relapse
I was on LC at one point, and ended up relapsing in long time EDNOS (which is a blurry mix of anorexia and bulimia) over a decade ago. A couple years ago I tried treatment and didn't like it. They used the old school "food guide" and included SOME "junk food" but a lot of my trigger foods, including foods I often used as "purge foods", on a daily basis hoping that my lack of purging would get my body used to so-called "normal eating". It didn't work.
I got worse and worse after I was discharged. I have memories of the time when I ate LC for a period of a few months and how good it felt. It was such an easy WOE, as it self-regulated, and I had, for the first time in my life, neither the urge to restrict, binge, or purge. So I have started again, this time building my OWN menu, because I know my body.
I'm starting off pretty high fat to get the satiety to a sane level with a low volume of food. At the moment it seems to be working, I've so far been two meals purge free. And for ME that is a success!!
