    When I go see my bf every other weekend I like to look as skinny as possible. Besides calorie restrictions, I like a little help to look as thin as possible, as I can imagiine if you only ate 1000 cals in fast food, youd not look as good as if it were eggs. Which tends to bloat you faster...

    Okay so can someone like really explain the effects that refined carbs have on the body? Because lately, I've become really averse to refined carbs, artificial sweeteners and sugar in general. I'm really trying to be as healthy as possible and all those foods I'm suddenly really not a fan of...

    So I know fruit is healthy and keeps me full but I think what's freaking me out is how sweet fruit is + how much volume it has. I feel that since I'm eating something super sweet like oranges, plus I'm really full after 2 oranges which is only like 180 calories if you're getting the big ones...

    So basically I want to look like these girls (I'll add pics at the bottom) but I can never stick to exercise and 80% of my diet is poptarts and chocolate (NOT an exaggeration). I did a lot of exercise for 4 months during the summer and during this time I was more obsessed with clean eating and I...
  8. Orthorexia
    So I've been trying to cut out/cut down on refined sugar and carbs (e.g. sweets, cakes, cookies, wheat/grain products), but still eat 'whole' carbs like lentils and occasionally potatoes. My problem is I still live with my parents (just graduated, not enough money to move out yet), so I have to...

    Basically the title. I guess it also depends on what you binge on. I typically binge (or overeat) on starchy food, with a bit of fat. I feel hyper and my heart speeds, but then I feel sleepy and need to take a nap. What about you?

  11. Anorexia Discussions
    Can anyone else relate? The carbs I let myself have are from healthy sources (whole wheat mini bread, fruit (namely apples and bananas), sweet potato) and sometimes i fantasize about the oatmeal I have in my cupboard but I cant bring myself to have these things without feeling guilty. It sucks...

    hi everyone . I had to do a fasted insulin blood test. My result was below normal. I dont understand what this means? Does it mean I am sensitive to carbs? Or the result is just because I have low blood pressure sometimes? I also got a few other things tested that all came out normal. But if...
