Hello everybody :
I am making this post in the high hopes that somebody will read it and it will help/inspire them.
This is my story in a nutshell. I am 47 and have had binge eating disorder since late 1982 when I was a college student. I have done everything and I mean everything to conquer including a stint at a very well known eating disorder center to the tune of $ 37,000 for my insurance company to fork out.
I am now diabetic and have sleep apnea.
I decided to go gluten free after reading about Oprah's 21 day fast and read Kathy Freston's book ' Quantum Healing', it has truly changed my entire life.
I have been gluten free since last Sunday, so today is day number 10 for me. Not only have I lost 7 pounds which is of course brilliant, more importantly I no longer crave carbs and I no longer binge at all. I have an extremely limited diet even by the standards of the average vegetarian or vegan, as I eat no animal products at all, nor do I eat soy or sugar in addition to cutting out gluten.
My diet is primarily what Dr Neal Barnard recommends which is beans, veggies, fruit and I do include flaxseeds and I use a limited amount of extra virgin olive oil and I do have a small amount of pistachios daily as well.
I would not even begin to try to push anybody to such a limited way of eating unless you were heavily inclined to do so, but I will say this, limited or not, in 26 years this is the only approach that has worked for me. Not only am I reducing my excess weight, but at last ...........binge and craving free !!
If any of this helps you, please use it.
It does not matter what people think of me, it matters what I think of them.........Queen Victoria.
