I ate 12 donuts in one sitting!!! And I'm still alive


Quote  |  Reply

Yea. I ate 12 250cal/piece donuts. Entennman devils food crumb donuts to be exact. It was delicious. 3000 cals of sugar and fat. And you know what? that is less than a lb of fat I put on (Seeing as how I already met my RDA for calories today). I will easily burn it off next week with only a 500cal deficit a day. I feel so much better knowing that I can survive eating it, and I feel like never having a donut again.

Oh my gosh Smile I could easily do that myself. Cannot have that kind of thing in the house or I am dangerous!! Stupid good food.Yell I love those Pepperidge Farm Cake 3-Layer cakes and I could eat a whole one easily. Or brownies, chocolate chip cookies, strawberry shortcake donuts from Dunkin or rice crispy treats.

... it's going to work out fine. That's one of the healthiest attitudes towards food I've seen on this site.

To the OP: good for you! haha. It's nice to know that going over isn't the end of the world & can be easily reversed, isn't it? haha

Last I checked a binge and then excusing is is not a healthy attitude towards food. It's a problem. Anytime you stuff your face and then think it's ok you have an issue with food and you are trying to justify it. Honestly I doubt you will be able to keep up with a healthy lifestyle or routine with binging, and in addition an attitude like that can lead to poor eating habits through justifying (well if I work out this hard or run a deficit this much I can stuff my face with crap 2-3 times a week). Right.

in my eyes, binging & beating yourself up over it & thus restricting later isn't healthy behavior. Sometimes people get carried away & eat more than they should, it happens. But to be able to move on from it & say "that's okay, I can make up for this & get right back on track".. I think that's a good thing. I dunno, my two cents, obviously.

They do not necessarily think it was good to eat 12 doughnuts, I think they were just saying that they did it, they cannot change what they have done, so they may as well not stress about gaining weight.!

No one ever said they advocate binge eating

There is a huge difference between “binge eating” and “ overeating”

Binging is HOW you eat, not HOW MUCH.

This person did not state weather it was a binge, or they just felt like eating too much.

You can “binge” on 3 banana’s if you do it in the context of a binge ( binge eating disorder is when you shove food in have no control and feel horrible afterwards and etc )

I had to point this because too many people assume that eating over a certain amount of calories makes it a binge!

How do we know this person shoved the doughnuts in their mouth with a binge mentality?

Binge eating is a serious eating disorder that is very different to eating a few extra doughnuts or cookies.

Why are you putting down someone else....people go on this forum for support, not to be subjected to sarcasm. This forum isn't called "High School". Support or help people or quit posting. You are not helping anyone, and she certainly didn't asking for an opinion on "healthy" eating Ms. Nutrition expert. You are the exact reason I use this site daily, but avoid posting in the forums like a plague.

 

****.

 

This was a reply to "Littlemalynda"....I should probably specify.

Wow FASCINATING data, 12 donuts, I wonder how fast you ate it... And what's the purpose, I'm sure there are ppl who can eat 24 donuts, why start competing in the game you cannot win... try against Phelps... you're still 9.000 calories away....

I hope you enjoyed the twelfth donut as much as the first and you didn't just eat them because they were there...

Just remember that our bodies are not Bunsen burners and will not respond by gaining exactly 1 lb for every 3500 calories over. For example, you could gain 2-3 lbs but some of it would be water. Ditto for cutting out 500 cals/day for a week. Some lose more, some lose less, but you can't count on losing exactly a pound, there are simply too many variables besides the calories you eat.

That said, I'm not trying to be a downer, and I hope you enjoyed the donuts. :)

I definitely agree that we need to be supportive of each other on this website, BUT it is not supportive to tell someone who consumed over 3000 calories in one setting that it's okay. We have all cheated and eaten things that are not that healthy, but part of starting a newer, healthier life means incorporating those types of foods into a diet of healthy foods... Instead of eating 12 donuts (just beause the box was open), try seperating them out into ziploc bags and allowing yourself to only eat one portion at a time. If you are worried about them going bad, freeze half of them. This is a much healthier way to view food. I read on a blog somewhere that the key to changing your life is in the way you view your food. Food needs to be seen as a necessary key to fueling your life. So, now when I eat I think about how the foods will give me energy, keep my immune system up, etc... sure, I still eat junk sometimes, but I know that I have successfully counterbalanced that donut, mug of beer, slice of pizza with a full day's worth of veggies, fruits, etc. Something that has also helped me when it comes to the urge to stuff my face... eat a salad or a piece of fruit or a serving of veggies BEFORE I hit the pizza box... I tend to feel less like binging when I do this. One more thing, we have all sat down with a box of donuts before, I know my problem is those giant plates of nachos from Applebees... just learn from that experience. I think the great thing about this website is that we all come to the forums with a range of experiences... let's support each other by pointing out glaring problems AND making constructive suggestions, not finger pointing... that's my two cents, anyway. Smile

Those Entenman doughnuts are tasty! It makes me long for those powdered doughnutty morsels of deliciousness! Put me on the "I think it's awesome that you aren't judging yourself in the Health and Support forum" boat!

 OH geez spare us the dad lecture. I want to give an award to someone who can eat 12 donuts.

The point was the OP slipped up (in a major way) and they are not letting it set them back.

12 is a bit excessive....lol I could probably eat three before I would throw up..I guess im pretty amazed.

I think the lesson of this post is that we have very strong feelings about food and eating!  My first reaction was YUMMYYYYYYYYYY.  My second was "Please deliver me from doing that"  because for me that kind of action is what got me here in the first place.  Kind of like an addiction that I can't play around with at that level.  I eat everything but if I ate 2 donuts i fear I would find myself on to the next and the next.  I think the most important thing for me is to do what is right for me and give others the same space.  Deep down we usually know what is good for our health and where some things take us.  A place........ today,,,,,,,,, I choose not to go! I have hope for my actions tomorrow!

You ladies are awesome and I value your comments!

blech.  i couldn't choke down two donuts, let alone twelve.  sorry if that's not supportive.

Yea so just wanted to clearify...I've starving forever cuz of wrestling, and I freaking love donuts. Yesterday I was done with wrestling due to an injury and decided to enjoy what I love the most until i was satisfied....which was donuts! I always do something like this at the end of every wrestling season, so whatever, I mean it's one day a year.

still blech.  but the fact that you can talk about "starving" and eating a dozen donuts in the same conversation revealsyou to be an adolescent in more than one way, so - whatever.  congratulations, i guess.

Really?

From your profile:

"i found myself, at 37, on the cusp of clinically overweight.  for awhile i was in the dark as to how this happened...it was a combination of general discontent/ dissatisfaction and a number of challenges in my personal and family life, along with a disposable income, bad habits, inactivity, etc. 

i never thought i was an emotional eater, because i don't overeat with others - only by myself ... when my dog was missing and i found myself staring into the cupboards and fridge looking for something--anything--to put in my mouth)."

Do you really think you gained weight from discontent or from the quantity of food you were eating? Maybe you didn't eat 12 doughnuts, but you certainly overate something! Or a lot of things!

Have you heard of "projection?" It's when we critisize others for traits we don't like about ourselves. Think about it.
