A half hour of Tori Kelly singing on the Today Show is about 29.5 too many minutes. This is like listening to a 3 year old whining.

I also want to add that I am only about 25 pounds overweight, so not huge. But that's only because I eat Keto about 90% of the time. And the only non-Keto things I really eat are fruit, which is only day a week or so. Otherwise, I would be obese, which I have been before. So I don't eat sugar, grains, dairy, soy, etc. I know that sugar addiction is a real thing, and can be a trigger, but I don't eat sugar, aside from the occasional fruit. I don't even eat Keto "treats." Basically nothing that's processed. But even eliminating all sugar doesn't curb the binges. I will eat 4 steaks or an entire chicken or 8 avocados.

In response to a confession. I think it's a biological issue because I think my brain has a chemical reaction to food that isn't typical. Just like your brain sends signals that it's hungry, mine does that too, but times 10 and when it's not hungry at all. It's different than just a craving for something. It is almost primal.

In response to a confession. The seizure medication makes a lot of sense. Many people with bipolar disorder take anti-seizure drugs because, to put it very simply, their brainwaves follow the same patterns as someone with a seizure disorder. It's absolutely a "physical" condition, that can't be primarily treated with cbt. Of course, cbt is helpful, but without the correct meds, it's pointless. I wonder if there are any clinical studies for someone with your condition.

In response to a confession. I ask this out of pure curiosity, not snarkiness..how is it a biological issue and not an emotional one? You physically don't have to keep eating, I would think the desire to binge is mostly in your head, not a physical symptom? I apologize if it sounds bitchy or like I'm judging, because I'm not. I'm just curious.

In response to a confession. Therapy didn't work because I think it's more of a biological problem than an emotional one. That's why some medications work for a while, but your body becomes tolerant to them and they don't work anymore. But since most people can just stop eating at a certain point, they think everyone else can too, so I think there is this attitude that I can stop if I just wanted to. So I think new treatments are not researched or developed. In fact, two of the medications I've been on weren't even covered by insurance because it's wasn't considered a true medical issue. One was but only because it is actually an anti-seizure medication that happens to work for binge eating disorder as a side effect.

I just saw a photo of myself ten pounds ago. At the time I thought I looked alright, and I guess I didn't look terrible, but the difference was kind of shocking. It made me see how far I've come.

I did some research into the whole intermittent fasting thing. So, it's basically just skipping meals. Am I missing something?

In response to a confession. I have been to dozens of therapists and did 3 inpatient stints. Nothing's worked.
