This seems to be a great idea! Te one day at a time theme if binge free days.

I made it through the last month binge free (hubby in hospital 20 days out of 30) and had a food dream last night that felt so real that I thought that I had had a binge. It wasn't until I woke up this morning that I realized it was a dream. Whew!

Today will be challenging...eating out tonight. Binge free for me means watching portions...no mindless eating. One day at a time!!!

Not happy to report, Day 7 was a binge. The dumb part is that when I watch myself, I really enjoy my food, whereas when I eat mindlessly, I not only don't enjoy the food, I many times make myself sick. I felt awful last night.

Yes why do we do this to ourselves?

I am starting to get that feeling the one where no low carb food satisfies me and thoughts of carbs. I have worked out and cleaned just trying to stay on plan, feeling really anxious and feel like I have been punched in the stomach.

Jeanie- I don't know if it helps, but try to remind yourself how awful you fell after you eat carbs (you only feel good for 5 minutes) and how difficult is to get back on track. I hope the feeling passes. Stay strong my friend

Still staying on plan but yesterday and today have been hard! Have you ever eaten low carb foods past full and found it helpful in getting rid of the binge feelings? I just took 750mg. of gaba to see if I can get rid of this anxiety that has really been getting to me lately.

Hope you are doing well.

Jeanie- I hope gaba helps you. Sometimes eating LC food past full helped me other times did not make any difference. Are you drinking lots of water? I have been very thirsty for the past few days (because of lock of veggies and fruits, I guess). I really have to drink more water otherwise I am thinking of reaching for yogurt. I crave something juicy because all I eat is meat and eggs, so today I had some cucumber with dinner and it helped a little. I was still thinking of having some yogurt but I know where this leads me, so I am just drinking more water.

I drink tons of water iced with lemon, constantly running to the bathroom. So far the gaba has only made me feel a little sleepy and slightly less anxious. No binges so that is good!
