lwfreed Posted February 17, 2013 Share Posted February 17, 2013 Hi! This is my second attempt at completing a Whole30. I surprised myself by reaching day 9 without a slip but had a glass of wine (which led to a sugary & grain-FULL dessert) on Valentine's Day, so I'm restarting. I've dealt with binge eating disorder and bulimia since the end of high school and am now in my last year of college. I've been trying to practice a Paleo lifestyle for the last 6 months, and notice huge improvements in my mood, digestion and skin when I eliminate sugar, grains and dairy. However, I find myself periodically binging on bad foods when I get stressed or in a situation where I am alone & bored (a time when I habitually would turn to food). I then feel terrible, both mentally and physically, and turn to methods of purging & extreme exercise to compensate. I've been able to rid my home of all foods that I do not want to tempt me, but being in college & having a job nannying where processed snack foods are always around makes eating only whole foods much more challenging - especially when I'm sleep-deprived! I'm really hoping I can use this forum to find support to follow the program for 30 days straight - and maybe even more after! I need to slay my sugar dragon and I want to reach a point where I don't feel as if thoughts about food consume my life. I want to eat to live, not live to eat. Any advice is much appreciated!
