I just wanted to share my success so far with regards to night time binging.
Since I changed my eating to picking low/medium glycemic foods, the DEMON urge to keep eating at night has stopped. I'm not kidding!!!
Some of the things we are told to eat as a low fat, low calorie treat, like pretzels, rice cakes, etc. only spike your blood glucose, to fall to a crash, hence why we want more. Eating potato chips in moderation, even cheerios can cause this increase and drop in blood glucose.
I was trying so many things to defer from night time binging, not having a snack at night as it would only make me want more, but then feeling totally deprived, going to bed early, eating things I really didn't want to, trying to stay busy, all of it did not work. After a few days of fighting I would binge. Even tried to be good during the week, but my weekends were a train wreck. So I would eat chips for lunch only to want more and more food....into the next day, etc. etc. we all know the story.
I know I'm passionate about the whole glycemic thing and want to share it a lot, normally I don't get excited about something to this extreme, so that tells me it is working. I'm so passionate about it I even started a spark team. Don't want to check out the team? no offense taken, cause there are plenty of sites out there related to the topic to help you. You would be pleasantly surprised.
I still track my food to stay under 1500 which hopefully someday I won't have to..
Plus not having the urge to binge, has resulted in 12lbs lost since the beginning of December.
Okay, I'll shut up now
