Once a week binges and dairy

Answered on August 19, 2014

Alright here is my question(s) is it a good idea to binge once a week as some sources suggest or not? I usually do a binge meal once or twice a week while eating within appropriate Cal during the week the binges usually go above 1500 calories plus meal calories during the day totaling maybe nearly 5000 Cal,that day.

For example my last binge consisted of 2 cans of tuna 200g of,leftover beef (mostly the fat nobody wanted) 2 hard boiled eggs onion 1/2cup butter and 300g of cheese I never eat cheese usually

Felt ok, just a little overstuffed and had too much salt as well. Plus I experienced instant diarrhoea 45 min later. Why? What could cause the diarrhoea. Thanks

Honestly, I don't think binges are okay. If I were you, I would look into seeing a good recommended naturopath. Binging on food means your body is telling you something. Either you are not eating enough, or it does not get enough nutrients. How is your gut flora? Have you tried eating fermented foods every day? If you are okay with cheese, eat raw goat/sheep cheese with no preservatives/additives, check the label that it is grass-fed and RAW. You want to maximize your nutritional intake and keep your gut flora happy.

Also another thought, if you depend on binges etc every once in a while can that lead to eating disorders? I've had ED in the past and in no way want to go back or start a new one. I'm not stressing about it, just had a couple of questions concerning the choice of cheese and the aftereffects could it be the butter cheese combo lubricating my system? Or allergic reaction to the cheese, the cheese was fresh like mozzarella. That could be the cause, or the combo of so many different types of meat and foods all at once? Or Too much protein as my count went over 300 from the usual 150g.

I've always binged growing up, just because I can. But in event of this binge nothing tasted good except the butter so Im guessing I was not eating enough fat. Lately I had been doing high protein mod fat low carb, maybe I need to switch it around to high fat high or mod protein and low carb. The days you crave something refreshing/sweet/cold what does that signify? I admit I am very heavy on salt consumption, more than the average American. Perhaps that causes some of my binges and cravings? I'm not panicking or worried about the binge, just wondering if there are any obvious negative to it

Find something to keep you busy then? If you are okay with the binges then sure go on. But what are your goals? And i have no idea why the diarrhea, maybe too much food? HAHA.

I don't force binges they only occur on Saturday when im home doing nothing all day. The rest of the week I keep myself busy but Saturday there is absolutely nothing to do. Thus bordem and cravings set in while I watch my family eat the "forbidden" food such as baklava, pastries etc. Saturday is the only day I feel my lifestyle restricts me. The rest of the week I have no problem eating Paleo. Beef liver scrambled eggs with homemade ketchup tastes great! As well as 2 quarters of chicken (the legs skin meat and bone) is awesome for lunch with a shared supper (I only eat the meat and fat portion

No I wasn't forcing myself, I was craving something and reached for the cheese last eventhough I never eat dairy (usually) only my family who is not Paleo do. I cut a block 100g of cheese tasted it, it tasted like garbage, used some salt and it still tasted like garbage but somewhere in my body said I was close to what I wanted so I cut another block of 100g saw the butter said to myself what the heck I've binged already might as well try the butter too so heaped 1/4 cup of butter on the block of cheese covered on all sides and but into it and it tasted like Heaven couldn't resist another

In most cases binge eating is triggered by: 1. Severe caloric restriction (maybe you need to consume more calories on a daily basis) 2. Eating foods that are not nutritionally dense.

Try to eat more kale, broccoli, leafy greans, onions, mushrooms, colored vegetables, bone broth, nutritional yeast daily and liver weekly. Have some cod liver oil, fish, organ meats, eat some fermented foods. Minimize the amount of foods that are lower in nutrients (like fruit). Do a nutritional analysis of what you are eating daily by using FitDay or Nutritiondata.self.com

When you feel you are having a binge, just give in and try to eat nutritionally dense foods during the binge.

Your binge foods are all good protein sources except for cheese. I would stay away from cheese and eat something else instead (if you can). However, the most important thing is to increase your caloric amount by eating nutritionally dense foods on a daily basis.

When did you start having those binges? When you started to diet or was there anything else that triggered them?
