When I finally realised this simple concept,
it blew my mind.
I had spent my whole life being on a diet thinking that this would solve all my problems, but it only made the binge eating worse.
The more food I restricted the crazier I felt around food and the more often I would have binge eating episodes.
When I finally allowed myself to eat all the foods, I was scared and worried that I wouldn’t be able to stop eating.
But the opposite was true.
When no food is off limits, I found that I could eat too much ice cream, chocolate, and cake and that your body will tell you when it has had enough.
I discovered that I would crave vegetables and grilled chicken instead of desserts.
When going to restaurants some days I would want to eat the creamy pastas and lasagnas, but other days I would feel like a soup or a salad.
