I am suffering the physical emotional effects of a lifetime of compulsive overeating and have recently added amino acids to my daily regime including tryptophen at night.  i'm discovering that the tryptophen seems to be helping the most.  

I purchased a book entitled Mood Cure and that really blew my mind because it talks about the brain chemistry in great detail and all the addictions in the world from folks reaching for something to make their brains feel better; plus deficiencies that many are born with which is the very reason I began to reach for sugar at such a young age and could not stop.

I had one period in my journey on the GTD where I was about 99.9% compliant and all my cravings stopped.... however, I still have a low level/blah depression.  Eventually I found myself back into the sugar to drive that away and to feel excited about life again.  

I personally have always felt that there was a brain chemistry connection to what drives cravings in our world for whatever your drug of choice is, and certain types of food can most definitely be drugs.  I have experienced what it's like to be out of my mind with cravings... intense or just irritating agnst going on and when I fulfill the need with sugar, the cravings go away immediately.

I have tried reaching for meat or other healthy suggestions in the midst of a craving crisis and it does not work for me.  

However with that said.. I have found that those things do work over time.  Over time when one focuses daily on getting the necessary foods for ones particular health and sanity, the cravings go away for good.  Like deposits in a bank, the health grows and the brain chemistry stabilizes, etc., etc. BUT one cannot let up on a good regime.  Over time after a good strong period of steady healthy eating, I'm sure one could venture off to a meal here and there, that was not compliant.. however in my experience one must immediately get back on track.  

It's been a long long journey to find my way... and recently I have not been compliant (see my post on IBS), but thanks to the IBS, I'm being forced to be compliant and work toward stability and I have found that stability and a life of no cravings is like gold.

In my world of compulsive overeating, nothing is more horrific than having to deal with cravings...and so to have a life free of those is something that I have made a high priority now.  And with God's help, I will continue to have physical and emotional recovery from a life of bingeing and dieting, shame and guilt about my disease.

blessings to all on the journey... isolation is death... sharing our stories and supporting one another is life.

Also.. Amino's have been helping me a lot lately which I learned about from the Mood Cure book.  Here's a good article:

Thanks for your contributions, BluesSinger; I had been away for a few days and trying to clear up Admin's splicing of my threads that have made absolutely no sense; still trying to clear the last batch up - I wish I had gotten to you sooner.

It's great that you've talked about moods. I wish science had a way to look at brains BEFORE autopsy to find differences in neural pathways some people probably have that make life more difficult for them. Perhaps your brain chemistry book is the next best thing that we have at this point.

As of this week I find an added dimension: I'm intensely interested in the roles hormones play during the cleansing crisis as we wean ourselves away from both foods that are on the avoids list, and even foods we know we are eating too much of to begin with, but may not know why. And right now, PROGESTERONE is the hormone I wish I could absolutely SILENCE in our body's "Town Hall Meeting" this week...so badly I wish I could tie it to the chair and gag it!

For example, today around 2pm, before a significant hormonal shift (which I regularly expect, on said day, one day of the month, which lasts about 6 hours total, and is part of a massive cleanse).....of all things being released amidst the hormones were my last bulimic binge foods.....suddenly for about an hour (and a miserable one, at that) I could taste pastries I had eaten at least 7 days in the past coming up in my mouth, on my tongue.....and I was literally FREAKING OUT. It was like I was eating them all over again, although I wasn't eating a thing. "Ghost food."

In my perplexity I am split between 2 hypothesis: were the hormones in the cleanse loosening old, undigested food particles in the body, OR, was this an awful throwback to "autophage" (cells of the body consuming old cells built in the past from avoids we had been eating frequently?)

As the old Tootsie Roll Pop commercial used to say: "The world may never know!"

Get him to read The Mood Cure.  Or maybe if you have.. get him going on Amino Acids.  I'm sure his brain chemistry is WACK which causes his awful cravings and inability to say no or stay on the right track.

I would try even 5HTP as well as it strengthened my 'back bone'..

add minerals and remember we can only do what is inside of us.. if we are empty there is no strength..  

Here is a dieting way that might work for everyone.. BTD specific if done right..

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Although I haven't purchased anything like Traumeel recently, I am going to toss up these 2 sites I found THIS MORNING since I was struggling with the "nutrients I need in nuts, oils, and carbs" for the BILLIONTH time, and wanted to sort out the unruly "Town Hall Meeting" that was in chaos this morning. I'm liking these 2 websites very much!:

http://www.nutritiondata.self.com

http://www.naturopathyworks.com/pages/cravings.php

I'm hoping that these and the aforementioned book about Mood are as close to what a person can use short of a mineral tissue analysis.....

I'm thinking if we can give patients "tools" like these to take home with them, it will help alleviate the practitioner's (sometimes) defeated feelings as well.....

After all, one can only hope to benefit from how often they notice themselves getting depleted of substances, instead of having to swallow almost an eighth of a cup of vitamins/minerals along with a meal...if one happens to skip a day of vitamins......UGH!!!!!!......these need to be pulverized into liquid form.....

What it says about calcium associated with fats is amazing.
I've switched to one of those 3 horsepills a day doses of cal-mag-zinc and missed several days of them.....

The fat cravings could also tell the body if some other disease is causing calcium loss, yes? Wow.

Nope. Not for A's after 8pm. It mimics the BTD, though. We'll have to keep writing our own books....in an era when virtually EVERYONE thinks they're author-potential (it can be a depressing thought.)

I wonder if anyone has found books along the line of......
"Your body's many cries for exercise."

I know there's an article out there that Lola posted called "Your body's many cries for water"......I'd love to see a book along the same lines.

I am DETERMINED to get through my own mental encumbrances, and quit the useless thinking that I am "old". I'm supposed to be getting younger, doing my SWAMI and all

HOW THIS RELATES TO EATING DISORDERS: spreading the nutrients we eat to our tissues, helping to keep cortisol in check, and decreasing insulin resistance related to compulsive overeating issues

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.

Seraffa..The above link to the diet plan is not so much for the time, nor the foods.. just the ideas.. like eating the same foods for several days.. like eating certain (swami list trumps all always) combinations, at certain times ..  certainly not late night eating unless one is a night time worker..

You have come along way Seraffa from a year ago.. You will get better as long as you keep it all together... hahaha

But yes!!!!! going through the issues of aging is for the proverbial birds.. we all have to face it at different stages in our life.. (Passages / books by Sheean)

At 39  it frees us from responsibility for others=we say:  NO more - been there- done that.  
At 42 we recognize that it is to late for the making babies, but still the best years for sex and loving.  
At 50 or onset of meno PAUSE we better decide to sit and read Suzanne Somers books on hormones.. her early ones..
At 60 well.. the question of.. is it too much trouble to go out and be social? NEVER.
At 65, at least you get Social Security to help pay for supplements haha ...
at 67 - heck might as well accept it, I will be on old lady some day.. like when I do not wish to carry heavy bags.. haha
down size my hand bag to 4 inches, leave all the rest of the stuff in a different bag in the car trunk for the twice a year when I may need it.. why carry it?    

....So you see you have a way to go.. Laugh when someone holds the door open for you, or gives you the Tuesday discount for old people ...haha

The antidote and cure for all is- less sugar in your food and more walking- by parking far away from your destination.. and take the steps as often as there is a choice.. 5 flights are just right..

And dare anyone to be more then you are.. make sure they lose.! .! after all you are a BTD person.. knowing so much more......

hmmm I nearly tried all orthomolecula modalities with this man.. but it seems he's that toughy mentally and resists all about his own agreements... he knows that he should change but he isn't willing coz he doesn't sees nor accepts the need for changes..... .... often people only can learn the *hard way*.... it must really hurt...and hurt...and hurt again that remembering for changes might be allowed and happen....

Must be honest... those therapist killers aren't that seldom......

THE STRUGGLE COMMENCES AGAIN; this time, the battlefield is much smaller, and with definite perameters to finally "kill" this thing, because now I know from my mother's genetic history HOW I have inheirited bulimia, and under what circumstances.

(GYN's haven't lifted a finger over the years to test me for my hirsuitism........this is more sad than I ever realised, considering so MANY women out there are GYN's; they must be too full of themselves to care anymore. TRUTH.)

http://www.independent.co.uk/l.....osterone-431106.html

I have had a slip for 2 days now.....thread got yanked and placed over on my "Seraffa" thread - what happened is there's a hormone fluctuation going on 5 days before my mense.....so the dreaded "ghost food" effect started coming back up into my mouth......(this is the call for help over on the "Seraffa" thread)...I was so desperate for answers last night...praying, praying, praying hard....liquorice seemed to blunt only 1 craving (milk products), and I took all my supplements today, but my 24 hour liver processing cycle as an Explorer is what kicks in at the end of the small intestine and junction with the large intestine....and that's why the addictive cravings show up the second day: the black dot/addictive food  has not yet gotten all the way through the digestive system after 12 hours, and puts me in danger of a repeat binge each and every time.

I've read over on LIVESTRONG about how people are trying to reduce the effect of POS and/or overly abundant testosterone. It seems for me, a critical part of this is to give the liver emergency help when there is an upswing or surge of androgens/progesterone building before the mense actually happens.

A lot of androgens were expelled via the toilet last night, and I felt tons better, but the celiac allergy to wheat was still in my system, and I've gone through the 2nd binge today.....unwillingly, and with resentment.

I"M SO CLOSE to eradicating this thing.......
It's like shaking your fist at DEATH and MORTALITY, and cursing at them.....

My comment is: would anyone like to testify or back me up on usage of the Explorer Liver Cleanse twice a month - during the fluctuations of the progesterone/estrogen, to make sure my system can "flush out" the afflicting hormone that triggers my bulimia, within a reasonable amount of time?

I'm greedy, Goldie. I LIKE using my mother's grocery Senior Discount Card, and people let me do it. In another 7 years I qualify for AARP and also "Senior Citizen Housing" when age 55. You could say I'm heading up the walkway towards the doorstep

I saw your post about the mammogram. I'm sending you best wishes and hugs about your biopsy ((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))

Quoted from SquarePeg


That's cool, SquarePeg; the only more revealing thing we should have now in every American home is a flat screen "electronic map" of the body -- the circulatory system turning different colors for different nutrients we ingest, and the system going a "cautionary" color when we have sat in front of our other "flat screens" for too long being a couch potato after the avoids and the stupid fast-food meals everyone seems to live on not to mention cigarettes.....

Imagine if you could follow disease developing in your body, minute by minute......we would have a more sober world than what we've got now.

I also read it, but being a man, without the experience of menses and very little experience with liver cleanse, didn't have anything to offer - except knowing that there is little chance of the cleanse in the book hurting you.  I just have no knowledge of whether it will benefit this issue...

Sounds like I might need some of these herabl remedies, I have never tried any of these.

I am mentally exhausted by thinking about what to eat.

Good luck Seraffa, I am sure you will be fine.

Sounds like I might need some of these herabl remedies, I have never tried any of these.

I am mentally exhausted by thinking about what to eat.

Good luck Seraffa, I am sure you will be fine.


I don'T FEEL fine tonight. I feel like I need opioids and a hormone cleanse and a vacation and servants working at my house. THATS how I feel. It's a horrible feeling. I have a headache. I ate too much poultry this afternoon. I don't feel like I can manage my body at all tonight because I'm not sure where to start. It's terrifying trying to be an expert at dodging this genetic condition. It's a burden of responsibility I wish I didn't have. I wouldn't wish it on anyone!

Seraffa, I love the chart on food cravings from the naturopathyworks site.  I've been doing better but till reaching for the chocolate. Do better some days then others,  so perhaps I need to up my magnesium. I need to explore this site more later. Have you gotten the free book?  If so what did you think of it? I don't like getting put of lists (by these sites) I'm always worried I'll keep getting sales pitches from them.
