This "one" last binge will get it out of my system and I'll start fresh tomorrow. Yeah right!!

Or almost immediately after the food has gone down the regrets sets in and the realization that the food wasn't really all that great after all. The nights tossing and turning with heartburn and reflux fun!

My worst ever was when Papa Johns were doing two pizzas for the price of one on a Tuesday night. Of course I told myself I would eat some, save the rest to reheat. Yeah right! Two pizzas in one evening. I was nothing short of a disgrace.

I always hit up multiple drive thrus. Or had delivery from several places. I do not think I ever opened a box of waffles and did not eat the whole box.
I will admit, I often would yell "foods here guys" to no one, so the delivery guy would not think it was all for me. Like he really cared about anything besides his tip, lol

I agree with you FF. A food addict is just as bad as a smoker, drug addict or any other addict.

I have had so many binges. Mine are always sugar. Cans of frosting with coookies and then chocolate bars to wash it down with. Yuck!

Spicy nacho doritos. I could eat a whole bag in one sitting with or without dip. For the love of god, I swear when I got down to 115lbs last year it was only so I could binge on doritos every once in a while! I could polish off a footlong from subway, and then 1/2 a bag of doritos before I felt I would puke. I don't know why I did this, but I know if I stick to my WOE I don't feel like I have to.
My husband has been told there are to never be ANY doritos in this house. EVER. He jokes with me about going to the gas station to get some sometimes.. I wish he wouldn't because that makes me think of them.. but I still laugh and threaten to beat him up.

To hide this I would make more of this dessert and eat the the same amount that we had eaten the night before. So that at dinner he could not tell what had happened.
What shame I felt.
Definitely an addiction.
When I was at my heaviest non-pregnant weight (175) and with my last husband, I would do this. I remember one time making a cake that wasn't even that special because I didn't have a lot of ingredients. It was a peanut butter cake made in a 9x13" pan with choc/pb glaze on top. I figured I'd have a piece. That turned into four, then six, before I knew it I had eaten half of it. I wrapped it in foil, put it in a cupboard and washed all the dishes and put them away so he wouldn't know then I finished it off the next day when he was gone. Oh, how I hated myself.
I would do that a lot. Eat a whole bag of sun chips plus a wrap(low carb wrap!), eat some cereal, eat some animal crackers dipped in peanut butter, a peanut butter sandwich, wash all the dishes, then make dinner for us all. I was so depressed back then!! I'm so glad I don't have to feel like that anymore. I still have no idea what was wrong with me.
The doritos thing though... I don't think I'll ever be able to smell them again. They are such a major trigger food. I think it's the MSG. I am easily addicted to anything with MSG, especially stuff that's crunchy and spicy.

BTW, thank you all for sharing as I see myself in all of your stories. It takes a lot sometimes to admit things like this, and I'm happy we can all do it in a safe place. I think it's good to talk about even though it's not easy. You all have my support!

I did the multiple drive thru thing a lot too. I use to spend 10 bucks on ten things off of the dollar menu at mcds and eat it all in one sitting. I would go to my local grocery store and buy of tub of cookies, donuts, chips,a sub and some soda and eat it all in one sitting. I would lock myself in my room and binge. I was so ashamed.

Oreo Cookies with double cream filling! I used to love those! I never binged as in just stuffing myself into a food coma type thing, but I used to drink 2 big cups of coffee a day with cream and about 2 and a half table spoons of real sugar in each cup! Just thinking about that now makes me Plus I used to eat ice cream with every meal every day. I was a sweet-holic.

Ice cream and oreo cookies were my two favorite things. I haven't had either of those things in over a year. Not since starting low carb. Once I detoxed from the sweets, the cravings went away.

I have done every single one of these things time and time again. I was especially queen of having one last hurrah the weekend before I would start low-carbing again on the following Monday. By Wednesday I fell off the wagon and then went grocery shopping where I would buy all my favorite foods (um, chocolate covered pretzels, cream-filled devil's food cake, and, of course, ice cream to name just a few) so I could eat them until I would begin again the next Monday. I did this SO many times... I bet I gained 5 pounds every week I did this, if not more.

Another thing I would do? Go to Dunkin Donuts and get a dozen, asking for specific ones and then saying things like "Well, maybe this other kind would be okay..." when they would say they were out of something. In other words, acting like I was buying the dozen for work or different people, when all along I was only buying them for myself. I don't think they ever lasted 24 hours.

Ugh. Glad that is in the past.

My former favorite binge would only occur when my husband was out of town for the night. I'd make an entire box of mac and cheese with extra swiss melted into it, eaten with a couple slices of white bread, followed by an entire pint of moose tracks ice cream, and all washed down with a giant liter of McD's sweet tea. I knew it would tear my stomach up most of the next day but that never deterred me in the slightest.

Thankfully, HFLC has quelled that habit completely.

My binge foods usually included chocolate....mostly brownies or cookies. One particular day sticks in my mind. I made a chocolate Hershey pie and started in on it in the afternoon. I soon realized that a lot of it would be gone by the time my DH would get home, so I ate the rest of the pie and hid all the ingredient wrappers in the trash. I never told him I'd made it. I would've died of embarrassment.

I also used to bake a pan of brownies and eat them all in one day, plus other junk.

I'm able to eat sugar now without binging, thanks to JUDDD. I'm at my goal weight and quite happy.

good for you, REDHEAD.

That is all that one could wish for. As I am DMII, sugar ought not to be part of my plan, or anything that will convert rapidly to sugar inside of me. I never say NEVER, though. I just say "not now", or "not today", or "some other time, perhaps". That works just fine for me. Again, I am overawed by your accomplishments. FF

You know, anyone who says that food is not a true addiction (and I've heard that a lot) need only read this thread. The amount of lying and subterfuge we've all done is worthy of any hardcore drug addiction.

I wish I had known you all back then. I wouldn't have felt so alone.

I would go through the drive thru to get dinner and was so ashamed that I would order more than my hubby so I would eat some of it in the car on the way home so it looked like I order the same or less than him.



I work in a restaurant and would sometimes eat a meal there and then pretend I never ate anything so that when I got home we would get something to eat.

All through this summer I binged daily on ice cream. I had 2 pints a day every day. No wonder I gained 9 pounds.

Here is my confession. I can eat all of the below during 1 day. My binges can go on for a week (always during PMS):

Bag of TJ's roasted mac nuts (about 2000 cal)
7 bananas (fried in butter or made into smoothie with yogurt)
2 -32 oz containers of yogurt with honey mixed-in
Jar of almond butter with honey (about 2000 cal)
5 apples

Can easily add to to 5000 cal

Addict here, too. Cookies or snack cakes are my weakness, really any type. I could easily put away a bag, or two, during a one hour TV show...right after a big meal. I know that my addictive behavior is still right there, lurking and waiting to come back. Even now the craving for something sweet hits me after a meal.

This reminds me of my favorite quote, by the late, great George Carlin:

Just 'cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town.

I may have to add that to my signature to remind myself LOL.

What I found was that after a while the amount of food consumed during a binge increased. Looking back ,I see that one pint of ice cream became two along with choc. pretzels, chocolate peanuts, peanut m&m's all washed down with a diet pepsi of course! Typically all eaten at one sitting, rarely was not able to finish it all, never mind that I knew I would feel sick and have reflux for days. After a few days of this I will always get a sinus infection as well. rarely get those when I don't binge.

I always convince myself that this will be my last binge and I already blew it so what the h**l. It takes a lot to pull out of this cycle and I fully intend not to binge again, but by evening I am repeating the cycle.

I have a long history of binges. Little Debbie anything gets me into trouble. My husband bought three boxes a few days ago and only ate 2 cakes. The next day I ended up eating all but 3 cakes. I might have done better if I'd been prepared and stocked up with low carb foods or even had any real food in the house lol. It wasn't even a binge I just couldn't resist going back and snacking on them all day. Of course what was really humiliating was hearing my husband tell my brother and sister in law about it yesterday.

wow....I am so glad I checked this thread out....I see myself in so many posts. Back in the day I would "make an afternoon of it"....that means -

starting at 1 fast food place and just getting 1 favorite sandwich.
eating it while driving to the next fast food place and getting "another favorite sandwich"
There was always at least 3 drive ups involved and then stopping at the conveniance store for "dessert"


Glad them days are done.
Praying for strength every day contiinues.
