Hi, pre-paleo I was in CEA-HOW for a while and abstinent but I noticed my food cravings only got stronger. I couldn't stay abstinent for longer than 32, 33 days or so. And then I binged on carbs. For me the zero-diet calorie soda's where extremely dangerous, because the sweetener made me so ravenous. I didn't know back then that they could have this effect. Now I do a lot of IF and I managed to overcome my binge eating disorder and I dropped a lot of weight. My BMI is 18,something. It used to be 24.
I also was in OA-HOW. I tried a lot of things to overcome my eating disorder. Or better, to learn to live with my eating disorder. I actually have several eating disorders. I also suffer from night eating disorder. I think I found the answer in IF: I'm relatively happy with with it. I can eat whatever I want, not always when I want it, but with a little planning, I usually manage to get by pretty good. Hope you too!
Have a good 24!

New to me, sounds kind of strict. The zero-calorie soda seemed out of place.
calls for abstinence from any food that contains more than 10 percent carbohydrates. Three meals per day are fine, so long as the portions are carefully measured. The only between-meal allowances are black coffee, tea or zero-calorie soda.
