I love this site and I am going to continue to use the tools here, but I think until I get a healthier body image I should lay off the food tracker. I see the calories and for most people that would be a great thing. For an emotional binge eater it just helps me turn it into a real eating disorder. I will go days only eating a 1000 calories and than go and binge on things with not a lot of calories or some with a lot if I had a lot of really low calorie days. Do not get me wrong for about 95% of people tracking what you eat is great. There is the 5% though that instead it starts us obsessing over how much we have eaten when we can eat again what we can eat how much we can eat. When it turns food into your obsession than it is no longer helpful. I am just going to have to work out track that and just try to make healthy food choices with out the calorie counting.
