i just binged on 4000 calories yesterday. i feel like such garbage this morning. idk how to handle it. im guna think about why i did it and what was going on then and think of another plan but im soo angry with myself
i finally started to feel good again. i was eating well and working out and i was eating to like maintain as of a couple days ago or wtvr b.c i was finally like at my goal weight. i was soo happy. finally started getting commpliments that my face looks thin and not puffy.
now im prolly soo bloated and gianed a gazillion pounds. idk how to go about today. i just dont want to gain or b bloated and i want all the food out of me. idk how my body works anymore. eew =( im soo sad and angryyy. why did i have to do thiss
Please, relax. How often do you binge? If you'll eat normally you'll be fine again.
i didnt in so long then last week i did it once and got back on track and now i just it again. wth. think i gained weight? 4000 calories. yuck.
Binging is a result of dieting, usually, you need to eat maintenance for a while in order to prevent this from happening more often. What are your stats - age, height, weight, how long have you been dieting, how much do you eat, how much do you exercise?
im 5"5. 21 yrs old and weigh like 138. i was 135 and my goal weight is 130 which is just perfect i think. i know ppl go lower but i dont think its necessary.
i wud eat at maintence for a little once i get back to knowing im for sure 135 or less =/
i try and stick to anywhere btwn 1400 and 1700 totally depending on the day. i think im guna b sticking to 1400 the rest of the week to loose this binge weight =(
i try to b active and walk when i can. i also try to hit the gym at least 3 times a week and do 40 minuets cardio and some weights and stuff if can. ugh
Believe it or not, it's going to be easier to lose this "binge weight" if you go with 1700 rather than 1400. After a binge, your metabolism increases, so your body will perceive 1400 as too big a restriction, whereas, it may feel quite pampered with 1700 and it won't trigger another one. Trust me, I know how binging in a row feels like...
well im scared 1700 is to high to begin with lol. its already 9 ocklcok at night by me so i dont want to eat anymore. =(
i wish i knew how much i shud b eating. guess ill just stick to protiens again tom and c what happens. yuck
I was not suggesting to eat 1700 today if you haven't already; you may want to, at least, alternate 1400/day with 1700/day for a while. Otherwise you might trigger anther binge by the end of next week or even earlier...
i know! thats what im so scared for! but im scared 1700 is way too much and il gain on that. idk. yuck. im so bloated and have so much carbs in me still. i with nothing was in me and i could start over
1st - all this weight from a binge is water weight; limit sodium and carbs the next days and eat 1700. If you eat 1400/day 6 days and then have a huuge binge, you wind up with way more than 1700/day for the whole week, plus the disgrace, depression and all the bad feelings (emotional and physical) that follows. IF you go by 1700, you'll maintain a deficit and you'll prevent a binge... and why do you feel the need to rush over and lose the "binge weight" immediately? As I told you, it's 70% water weight and 20% the weight of the food you ingested. It's hardly going to count if you continue to eat properly.
so maybe the next four days, monday tues, wed, and thurs. ill make suree i excersize so im working off the carbs and ill just feel so much better.
and ill eat low carbs and like 1500 calories but if i feel already later in the day that im hungry and dont have that full full feeling, that im guna make sure to eat another 200 calorie snack or s.t.
but do u think my matabolism will b fast from all this and continue to b fast all week especially with me continueing to eat the right foods and excersize?
what can i eat thats filling and low carbs.
all i know of is my plain greek yogurt and i add cinnimon
tuna with veggies
plain baked chicken with veggies
then il have like a grapefruit and thats all only like 900 calories!
i dont want to restrict or mess anything up =( i understand i made a mistake and i just want to loose the weight, feel great again and prevent the binge. nourish my body, keep my matabolism up etc.. =( ugh i feel soo gross now.
thanks so much for responding btw. i really appreciate it. i have no where else to turn to.
Hey, sounds like a good plan, however, you need to remember that if somehow you mess up with a few more calories (let's say 2000 instead of 1700, you don't need to go 4000 just because you slipped; each calorie less matters ;)
Let me know how you're doing and, btw, can I call you something else than "determined00"?
heyy. yeh my name is kayla lol. whats urs? =)
so wait, u think if i eat 1500 (emergency up till 2000) ill b ok with excersize? and itll even out and ill go back to my weight and maybe even loos?
im freaking out cuz i think im about to get my period so the scale is still saying 3 pounds more but im hoping its a combination of all this together and i f i stick with this plan, itll go back by next week when period is done (if i rly have it now)
im so nervous to eat so much but i think itl b good. il maybe feel fuler and my body will maybe b happy and even loose some weight cuz im giving it food
Yes, I say you'll be at least maintaining your pre-binge weight, while also keeping your body nourished and binge-free. After this 1700cal/day week, you can go ahead with alternating 1700-1400 if you still need to lose. Once you're set at the weight you like, you can easily go ahead with 1700/2000 if you get to stand or walk a few hours a day, even with no other exercise.
The thing is, with binges, that they are triggered by calorie restriction and if you don't act at time and continue to restrict or to threaten your body with restriction, binges become like a chain reaction and it'll be extremely tough to stop.
So, be wise, don't be like I was. Now it's so hard to stop, it keeps me for months (I mean it, literally).
I go by Tamisa ;) Very nice to meet you. I enjoy your friendship!
hey, thanks hun. =)
i know what u mean, and unless on occasion when the binge is purely from being bored and just wanting to eat, its alwayss b.c i was deep down hungry and being too strict =(
the truth is, for a while the way i got down to basically my goal weight which i think is 130 and b4 binge i was 135, was cuz i started doing excersize whenever i could and eating btwn 1200 and 1400 and for some reason it worked but i guess once my body started being close to what it should weight, it just got ticked off
im really trying to learn from this and u taught me alot as well as other ppl on here about how to deal post binge and what really happened to my body and the best ways to continue so i dont do it again.
i guess it is true, by raising my calories, ill feel less hungry and ill b giving my body the food it needs and then by excersizing on top of that, ill b creating a deficiency just with that so that will burn off the extra calories i ate and get me to where i need to be.
i think i dont think shud go below 1500, i think thats what triggers binges but ive never eaten more really cuz i always thought it would b too much ya know?
thanks so much for all ur advice =)
