What is the most extreme eating you used to do?

I am curious as to how nutty (in the bad ol days of SAD) I could be compared to the rest of ya'll. I once won 200$ by eating a 20 " pizza in college. One 20" is actually two 15" pizzas. Can anyone top me? I throw the gauntlet down.

@Ingenol, I'm so sorry you relate. It's so ridiculous to know that I do this...I hope nobody in "real-life" ever finds out. I'd die from shame. It's a horrible secret, but I working to change this. I hope you find peace in the long run as well <3

didn't let myself feel guilty about it, because that perpetuated it and 'allowed' me to further self-medicate with food. I had to forgive myself for being self-destructive, and think about how my choices were affecting me. Because, even thought it was an addiction, it was also a choice, for me, at least. I wish I could help more, but that's just what I had to do, everyone will have to do something different based on what is triggering them to engage in self-destructive behaviors.

Marlla, I'm not *entirely* sure, so I have no idea if this is going to help at all, but here goes... I recognized that bulimia was self-destructive (which should have been obvious, but wasn't to me), and that it was causing a whole host of other problems. When I cut out cabrs I lost the urge to binge, and it was pretty much that simple for me... sometimes I still want to eat more than I need, and I have to be mindful of the fact that I am looking to food for comfort and not for nourishment. It took time, I still binged/purged even when I recognized how very, very bad it was. But I (con't)

sending you hugs. i too was a vegan/anorexic who struggled (struggles?) with the binge mentality. the anorexic and binge mentality are very similar - i need to be good enough, and if i am not, i deserve punishment. learn to treat yourself well for your mental health, the body follows. if you need a buddy, facebook me and i would love to chat - rebekah nelson kasper.

Matthius, good for you! Isn't it liberating, to be able to eat this way, and cultivate a healthy mindset about food? I don't feel guilty, the few times when I have overeaten (no more binges, though!) because I am eating healthy food, and it balances out, unlike before, where any overeating meant a binge and then purge, and a promise to do better the next day... which of course, didn't happen, the cycle repeated. I've finally accepted that my goal of being underweight was detrimental to my well-being, physical and mental, and I just enjoy food, and myself, now.

I wa never a big chip-eater--except when I was stoned, and only crunchy, salty stuff would satisfy my munchies. Ruffles potato chips were my fave, but I'd easily destroy a couple of bags of tortilla chips and a family-size jar of salsa if I was home and stoned alone. Then I'd wake up with salt-burned lips the next day. Good times, man. LOL

I was dieting two years ago, and doing the whole "Saturday as a free day" thing. Throughout the course of an entire week I would plan what I would eat. I remember one Saturday was pretty bad:

  • Woke up at 5:30 am, ate half a quart of mint choc chip ice cream. Ate two handfuls of mint chocolate pieces.
  • 6:00am started on a box of Quaker oatmeal squares, along with a quart of whole milk.
  • 9am or so, had one or two chocolate bars to tie me over until lunch.
  • 11am, pizza place opens, go there and eat two 7" pizzas, go to trader joe's to pick up some cookies, brioche rolls, frozen chocolate dipped bananas, and a package of naan
  • 12:30 or so, eat the rest of the ice cream, half a package of these oatmeal cookies (that weren't very good), one or two brioche rolls, another handful of mint chocolate, one frozen banana.
  • 2:00pm took a nap since I was so full, essentially waiting until my stomach digested what I ate so I could eat again
  • 5:00pm woke up, ate two frozen choc bananas, decided to walk to a middle eastern restaurant, ate there
  • 7:00pm finished the box of bananas (three left), the other four brioche rolls, another handful of mint chocolate
  • 11:00pm decided to eat the naan, since I bought it. Ate it with some of my roommate's garlic butter, and some thick cheese slices.

I pretty much ate the entire day. I am still surprised that I was able to still lose weight, although I was eating 1800 cals throughout the week. After a while I realized that that kind of behavior is entirely not good, so I've decided never to do that again. Looking back at what I ate, I guess my trick was to eat not that much fat, so I could keep eating all the carbs I wanted.

I think the biggest thing with me was that I was totally unaware of what I was stuffing in.

I was a secret eater a lot, so I would order double from somewhere like McDonald's and eat the first helping of a 1/4 pounder with cheese + super size fry on the way home and then eat another sitting down with my husband. Or I would buy 3 milkshakes, one for the car, one for home and one for him. I wouldn't look at it or taste it, it just went down.

I won a pie eating contest in third grade. My favorite stoner snack in college was a big bag of Frito's scoops with a jar of tostitos nacho sauce warmed in the microwave. I could seriously eat it all in one sitting. It was disgusting, though I was bulimic back then so it never stayed down.

Probably the buffet at Cici's pizza.I wasn't keeping count, because I was too busy stuffing my face with cheap ass pizza, but it was at least 7 big plates worth. These days, when I absolutely need a buffet, I go to Souper Salad or The Saltlick for all you can eat Texas BBQ!

The two days following the completion of one of my bodybuilding competition I ate the following in 36 hours:

1/2 of Outback Cheese Fry Appetizer

1 rack of rib with 1 fully loaded potato

Thunder from down under

3 bowls of fruity pepples with whole milk

4 Krispy Creme Doughnuts with whole milk

Double Whopper with cheese and Super Sized Fries and loads of ketcup

IHOP Steak Omelete with stack of pancakes, hashbrowns, sausage and bacon

1 Bag of Gourmet Lay's BBQ potato chips

1 Bag of Gourmet Lay's Sour Cream and Onion potato Chips

One whole extra large Pepporoni Pizza

1lb of baklava (not at one sitting)

I gained 5lbs in 2 days. And to think I was puzzled why I developed digestive problems over the years.

I haven't binged since college, and it was rare even then. I do remember once eating about half a can of frosting with a spoon, in one sitting, and being tempted to finish the whole thing, but that's when I was vegan. I am not really a binge eater by nature; I usually comforted myself with cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs... not something to be proud of. But I quit smoking six months ago, barely ever have the urge to drink any more (maybe 2 or 3 fluid oz of wine a week), and after working so hard on my diet, I have no interest in drugs either.

The alcohol thing is really amazing to me. I never imagined that I could go for a month without a drink and not feel the tiniest bit of stress over it. Also cigarettes -- I never could have believed that I would not miss them at all.

On Thanksgiving many years back I ate a whole bag of tortilla chips, jar of cheese, and refried beans. I pretty much inhaled them and would regret my lack of chewing later...

About an hour later I loaded up on thanksgiving dinner, mounds of potatoes, gravy, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pickles, cheesy celery, rolls, pumpkin pie, and ice cream. Oh boy. In the middle of the night my stomach decided to send it all back, nachos included...yeowch.

After a massive dose of steroids from a bad chemo reaction I was starving. I had a full Italian dinner, salad, appetizer, main course, then went to the mall, saw the frozen yogurt and had the largest size with all the toppings. Walking back to the car passed a pretzel place where I has one large cheese and two large cinnamon pretzels. Got home, saw there were four cupcakes in the fridge, ate those. Decided I needed a large hot tea so I drove to dunkin donuts where I got two donuts and a large hot tea. Drank that and ate the donuts, got home and threw it all up in th driveway.

Oh boy. First: AAAAALLL day, nothing but fruit and diet tea, when I was vegan/anorexic. Some days all I'd consume was a gallon of diet Arizona tea. Others it was only 300-500 calories worth of fruit. Maybe a "treat" of air-popped popcorn. Ha. I would sometimes eat close to 1200 calories (biiig deal right? ha), but I came to the point where I considered that a binge, I was so obsessed.

Now: Oh, my. Don't get me started. Last summer, a typical day for me was like this: Wake up- Cook up 7 or 8 MASSIVE pancakes using white flour, vegetable oil, all that other terrible stuff :p Eat with maple syrup and peanut butter. Drink a couple glasses of milk. PURGE. Immediately after- Make a big thing of noodles, smother in some sort of cheese sauce, eat. Purge. After that- Drink a bunch of juice and purge. After- Drag self out of pajamas, make self look decent enough to face society, buy junk food... Something like honeybuns, dark chocolate(okay, not actually junk, but I prefer it to milk chocolate), lots of frosting, a lot of drinks, maybe something from Starbucks, lots of "nutrition" bars. Eat it all in the family bathroom. Purge.

And then have dinner with my mom, and purge that after she went to bed.

YEP. It was pretty bad.

It's subsided a little since then.. I definitely still binge/purge... It's this compulsory thing I'm having a hard time getting a hold on. But I don't do it that bad anymore, and I really would like to get on board with paleo 100 percent. It's a struggle /:

Costco sells a gigantic chocolate layer cake--a real monstrosity. I believe it's called the All-American Chocolate Cake. On one of the last binges I can recall (maybe two years ago?) I ate one, along with a half-gallon of vanilla ice cream. It took me about three hours.

Fast food--especially Wendy's (if sober) and Taco Bell (if drunk). At my worst, I was buying enough food for 3-4 really hungry people at least two nights a week and eating it all. Usually, I'd sit in my car, listening to Art Bell on the radio as I devoured everything. I was so ashamed, I couldn't even bring it in the house.

I would inhale a box of pasta, a whole jar of sauce, a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter, a pound of cheese, a 'family size' bag of chips, a half-gallon of ice cream, a dozen cookies, a can of peas, a can of corn, and bowls of white sugar, mixed with syrup. I would tell myself, this is the last time I binge, after this I will never, ever eat, again. No matter how full my stomach felt, it did nothing against the emptiness I was trying to get rid of. And I would feel so ashamed, so guilty, and get so afraid of gaining weight, that I would throw up.

It was so horribly frightening, to lose control like that, and to be fully aware of everything I was putting into my mouth, my stomach, but to not be able to stop it, or to comfort myself with the thought that, at least I was getting it out. I would promise myself I would stop, at midnight, that tomorrow was another day, and that I wouldn't eat more than 400 calories a day for the next month. I would make it two weeks to two months like that, then binge for a week, or two, throwing up every time my stomach was too full.

I still had that mentality, for a few months after ditching sugar and grains, but I don't now, and haven't binged/purged for about 4 months. I know it can still creep back in, if I'm not careful, though. So I have to watch myself.

Matthius, good for you! Isn't it liberating, to be able to eat this way, and cultivate a healthy mindset about food? I don't feel guilty, the few times when I have overeaten (no more binges, though!) because I am eating healthy food, and it balances out, unlike before, where any overeating meant a binge and then purge, and a promise to do better the next day... which of course, didn't happen, the cycle repeated. I've finally accepted that my goal of being underweight was detrimental to my well-being, physical and mental, and I just enjoy food, and myself, now.

didn't let myself feel guilty about it, because that perpetuated it and 'allowed' me to further self-medicate with food. I had to forgive myself for being self-destructive, and think about how my choices were affecting me. Because, even thought it was an addiction, it was also a choice, for me, at least. I wish I could help more, but that's just what I had to do, everyone will have to do something different based on what is triggering them to engage in self-destructive behaviors.

I recognized that bulimia was self-destructive (which should have been obvious, but wasn't to me), and that it was causing a whole host of other problems. When I cut out cabrs I lost the urge to binge, and it was pretty much that simple for me... sometimes I still want to eat more than I need, and I have to be mindful of the fact that I am looking to food for comfort and not for nourishment. It took time, I still binged/purged even when I recognized how very, very bad it was. But I (con't)

I used to have this sick joke with myself that my personal four food groups were:
1. chocolate bars
2. gummy/fruity candy
3. snack cakes
4. chips
I would go weeks or months eating basically these four groups, with the occasional fast food/burrito/whatever thrown in. The local convenience stores were my supermarkets. I felt a personal loss when Hostess stopped making their blueberry pies. A bag of Doritos was a hearty dinner for me, because they filled me up more than the other stuff.

Suffice it to say, I was smoking a lot of marijuana at this time which completely destroyed all judgment and self control that I had. I used to wonder whether I ate so much crap because I was smoking, or if I was smoking to give myself an excuse to eat a bunch of crap. I'm surprised I didn't end up fatter than I did (about 50 lbs overweight).

I wa never a big chip-eater--except when I was stoned, and only crunchy, salty stuff would satisfy my munchies. Ruffles potato chips were my fave, but I'd easily destroy a couple of bags of tortilla chips and a family-size jar of salsa if I was home and stoned alone. Then I'd wake up with salt-burned lips the next day. Good times, man. LOL

Last fall I did "6 hour cheats" every two weeks. Basically for six hours on sunday, I stuffed myself with everything and and lots of it. I was only starting paleo, so I wasn't too concenrned. I was also doing low carb during the weeks, so I still lost some weight. One sunday I found myself lying on the bathroom floor in a food coma, and haven't done cheats like that ever since (not been cheating at all for 3-4 months now).

Can't exactly remeber what I had on the most extreme cheats, but something like this

  • McDonalds (at least 2 burgers, fries, soda & milkshake)
  • Packet of Pepperidge Farm Cookies
  • Pint of Ben and Jerry's
  • A large pizza
  • There' was something else, possibly a panini and maybe some candy.

whoa. in six hours.

When I was much younger, I had the ability to eat an entire box of Kellog's Frosted Flakes in one sitting (dry, straight from the box). When I got older, 4 cups of steamed white rice, swimming in butter, sugar and cinnamon was my secret binge food. I stay far, far away from white rice these days - for some reason I love the stuff, gawd knows why.

I've always been a big eater. If it weren't for the stares, I could easily demolish an entire cake.

One time, I was at the movies by myself (I know, I know...no one wanted to come, and I needed to see Midnight In Paris!) so I thought, no one knows me, I'll eat what I like!

3 200g bars of chocolate, 1 large popcorn, a large coke, a pint of Ben and Jerry's caramel chew-chew and a bag of haribos. In a 2 hour sitting.

What makes it worse is, I could've ate more. But the movie ended and I had to face reality. :P

That said, my most extreme dietary experience has been the Master Cleanse, which I've done three times over the last two years. Brutal, yet self-deprivationally satisfying.

I binge at buffets/student dining halls (which is sad because I'm a university employee...and not a student).

It goes something like this in a dining hall:

I'll start off with some chicken and vegetables and other sorts of protein. I'd probably eat about two plates of that. Lots and lots of sauce. If there is pizza, I'll grab a few slices and just eat the cheese and toppings.

Then I go for the starchy dishes...rice/pasta casseroles and more protein and vegetables. I do a nice full plate of this.

Then I move onto plate three, which is sandwiches and fries. Two hamburgers or chicken patty and then lots of fries and homemade chips, with lots of ketchup and ranch. If it is taco day, then a few tacos with cheese and sour cream.

Then I move onto plate four, which is one of those self-made large waffles, with nutella, butter and syrup. I follow it up with a bowl of either cinnamon toast cereal or granola with milk.

I end the dining hall binge with taking a sandwich with a wheat bun, turkey and cheese with pesto mayo.

I stuff cookies in my purse while praying I don't run into a student I know...and walk out with a takeaway cup with about 4 scoops of ice-cream.

I finally conclude with driving to a fast food place to get a value meal with lots of diet soda.

And no, I'm not trying to be funny.

It's so ridiculous to know that I do this...I hope nobody in "real-life" ever finds out. I'd die from shame. It's a horrible secret, but I working to change this.

@Ingenol, I'm so sorry you relate. It's so ridiculous to know that I do this...I hope nobody in "real-life" ever finds out. I'd die from shame. It's a horrible secret, but I working to change this. I hope you find peace in the long run as well <3

I won 50 bucks just this past year by being the first to complete a taco eating contest (eat a 12 taco box from Taco Bell all drizzled with hot sauce and no being able to use my hands). Proud would describe the way I felt that night...followed by misery!

Pre-paleo, I would subsist for a whole week on nothing but food you can acquire at a convenience store. Just thinking about that now makes me feel ill. I can't believe the things I used to eat, and I would definitely say living entirely on microwaveable burritos, frozen pizza, Hostess and Frito-Lay products and Coke Zero (because, yeah, make sure it's a DIET soda, FFS) as extreme. Extremely gross.

I never ate a SAD diet but the most shameful thing I've ever eaten was a bowl of dog food (Blue Mountain brand, so the better of the options). I did this 2x. That's the grossest/weirdest. The most "extreme" was probably a large shot of cobra blood.

I would buy hot French bread from the grocery store, one for the car ride home and one to serve with dinner. Most of the time I would also buy a chunk of brie or Camembert and shove it in the middle of one of the hot loaves of bread before I loaded the groceries into the car. This loaf was often gone before I ever left the parking lot.

In high school, I would eat breakfast before I left at 7, eat something from the snack bar (pizza or other crap) at 9:30, crappy hot lunch at 11:30, then usually a grilled cheese and hot dog sandwich at 3, followed by whatever SAD dinner my mom would make. It's no wonder I wound up at 300+ pounds in my 30s.

Middle school lunch consisted of the following every. single. day:

A bag of hot cheetos + a honeybun.

The Twelve Pack Challenge in college.... last person who finished the 12 pack of canned Busch Lite had to drive (cringe, yes, drive) to the store to buy more. Then, the real drinking began, along with smoking massive amounts of pot and making homemade pizza. What's my homemade pizza recipe, you ask? That would be a 99 cent Totino's pizza sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, frozen spinach, fat free American cheese slices and spices. And I thought I was being healthier than my roommates, who added pepperoni to their homemade pizza.

I actually remember chastising myself at one point for not having the willpower to develop an eating disorder.

When I was 15 I would eat a big plate of fries with a whole batch of bearnaise sauce (not the homemade kind) every day after school for many months. At 16 I would run home from school during lunch break to make pancakes, then I would make another batch when school was over, this continued for several months.

After I had my first child I would make a french chocolate cake every other day and eat half a cake every day, this also went on for a few months. Later I would make a whole batch of oatmeal cookies every day until I got a massive allergic reaction.

I would eat a whole camembert or brie with a bag of potato chips in one sitting, with soda at 11 o´clock at night frequently. For about 6 month´s I don´t think I drank water except when brushing my teeth, only orange soda. I would eat whole bags of garlic bread slices. I would eat chips and drink soda for breakfast.

It was horrible, I had a lot of digestive issues.

I once made a "bread sandwich" that consisted of a slice of bread between toast—and I managed to finish off an entire loaf like that. Honestly, I have no idea where the desire to do that came from, and I felt awful afterwards.

That was outside the norm, but even on paleo, I'll eat a full pound of ground beef or an entire head of lettuce without a thought.

In high school, I'd alternate between sharing a tub of icing with a friend, and eating only lettuce. My afternoon snack with my best friend was a box of Uncle Ben's seasoned rice or Rice a Roni. Yeah, I was on Weight Watchers several times in high school, too, even though in retrospect I wasn't actually overweight.

I can't recall any prodigious feats but do remember a period of sustained lunacy. I ate a large tub of BandJ's Choc Fudge Brownie, every single day, for about 18 months. Half of my calories, for month after month, from BandJ. Super.

At my fattest, back in 2003, a few times a week I'd buy a package of Newman-O cookies (Paul Newman's organic version of Oreos) and eat the entire package as an afternoon snack.

Right, and if you eat a candy bar with a diet soda, the calories cancel out.

I finished the (now defunct) DB Philly's "Broadstreet Bully" challenge: 24" Philly Cheesesteak wit Wiz (loaded with Cheese Whiz) and 3 pounds of fries.

Once or thrice I finished an 18" Everything pizza and a dozen hot wings with a six pack or so of beer in a sitting.

I did a trip to the salad bar and 2 1/2 hours of "don't turn the puck over" at Fogo de Chao (Brazillian steak house) without turning down a portion from anybody but the guy with the chicken legs.

My insulin spikes have normalized now, and I can't imagine pulling any of those stunts now...

I ate Lean Cuisine for breakfast and dinner, and Subway for lunch, pretty much everyday for like 6 months. Lost 20 pounds, then gained it all back and more.

Taco Tuesday at Del Taco, anyone? Mmmm...

Besides that, I tried gaining weight with an infinite meal plan at the dorms. I ate decent, except when I found out that the strawberry shortcake was like, 400 calories a serving. Wasn't good.

Veggie dog eating contest, and we use beer instead of water for dunking and drinking. I am/was runner up the first year, and won the last two years. I have since gone paleo but might break for a day to defend my crown. I think I was able to choke down about a dozen in 5 minutes, with whole grain buns of course.

I always felt like ass afterward, but a bottle of Underberg helped. I'm guessing I will feel 10x worse this year with all the dietary changes I have made. In the past it wasnt the food, but the amounts that hurt.

Well the five pounds of mashed potatoes I once ate at a sitting seemed extreme to a least one poster on this tread :)

I don't really know what the most extreme thing I did was, the point was not paying attention to what I ate :)

as a kid (probably from the ages of 9-12) my grandmother used to make an extra few pounds of mashed potatoes (and put out a couple extra pounds of carrot sticks on the veggie tray) if i was attending family functions since i ate so much of it, so the idea of putting away 5 lbs as an adult didn't even make me blink an eye in the other thread.
