Long story short… it’s cured my bulimia, at least that’s the way it looks. I don’t see food as the fix when I’ve got a problem, it’s caused me to really consider my thinking when it comes to food.
Instead of just buying ice cream, chocolate, cookies, etc and justifying it and bingeing then feeling shit and throwing up I just don’t binge anymore. That trigger to try and feel better through food is still there a little but it’s FAR less prevalent and when the thoughts do hit my head I ccatch them and deal with them. I think through this method eventually the thoughts will be so few and far between that it won’t be worth thinking about.
Anyway the V-Diet has given me damn good eating habits and a real desire for veges and lean meats and that sort of thing and made me really sit back and look at what role food plays in my life.
I’m by far the leanest I’ve ever been, my bulimia is behind me, my use of food as a cover for other mental issues looks to be well on the way to being behind me and I feel great. It all started with my first V-Diet run in Feb and was set in stone by my second fun in June.
Just thought I’d share and demo that the stuff about the V-Diet having other effects besides the physical are definitely true.
