Does anyone feel that the the BTD stopped you from binge/emotional eating?

It helped, but the Warrior diet has done so much more for me along that line! As long as I eat five or six small meals a day, I'm good all day long!!

From what I've seen in a family member who has this tendency, it has been the genotype diet that has really had a positive impact on the problem.

I would have to agree with the other posters.  BTD helped.  But with the sweet superfoods in the GTD, I can stave off binges even better.

I still have a problem resisting ice cream, though.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I had some sweets last week and am craving sugar like crazy, but other than a minor 'lapse' I haven't resorted to any emotional eating and it's something I did a lot in the past

I think GTD has made the differnce for me on this one.  Just need rid of the yeast in my system and I'll be fighting fit.

I am working on it with the help of gatherer diet. Diet alone won't solve it, it requires honest self confrontation.

With me it's more a thing if the food I'm eating tastes really good, then I find it hard to stop at a small amount...

I just realized that I have been making it hard for myself to over indulge. I simply serve up what I think is enough of something that is likely to temp me to eat too much, and then I put it away before I even taste it.  All that kind of thing is packaged up so it is a pain to drag back out or in a place that is hard to get to.  My nuts, rye crackers, teas, raw veggies, etc., are very handy. Works for me!

Absolutely.   In hindsight I think the binge eating was due to bacterial imbalance (infection) in the gut, and the emotional eating due to, well, emotional reasons

Thanks Victoria, I'll give it a go.  I'm taking Now's CandidaClear at the moment but it's too early to say if it is working yet and it might be good to rotate remedies until it's sorted.  Much appreciated.

Yes, I "put it away," too -- in my gut!

Seriously, I'm glad it works for you.  But there's no way putting back a half pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food Ice Cream is going to deter me from finishing it off.  What works better for me is not having that first taste and not thinking about it.  But there have been times I will drive to a supermarket just to get some if there's none in the house.

Wow! Now that, man, is a serious addiction!!! Just kidding, but I can't in my wildest imagination think of anything that would tempt me to drive somewhere for it unless it was something very beneficial and I was pretty hungry! Of course, when we were younger that was a different story!

I have not eaten ice cream in nearly twenty years so it is no temptation to me whatsoever because of lactose intolerance. Some "ailments" actually work to our advantage!

I hate to quote myself, but I did it again last night..I ate at Outback, had wine, scallops, linguini and the usual bread, salad, soup (cream of onion) and apple/pecan cinnamon and oat cobbler with ice cream..and a caramel sauce you pour over it...(hey, this weekend was a special occasion) At least I was pretty much on plan..I thought I was going to explode..!
You know how you're supposed to eat only until comfortable and then stop..well...I didn't..

One meal for a special occasion won't kill you  .  

You'll be back on plan tomorrow and with all your amazing exercise you'll be bouncing with health Mayflowers.
