  1. Low Carb Diets
    Hi! Previously restricting anorexic here, currently suffering from yo-yo c/s and purging cycle which I’m motivated to break. I’m hoping to start off with a clean plate and try to have some kind of structure. I want to have ”water”/very low calorie liquids fast at beginning and when reached a...

    How do people feel about ingesting pure glucose (so not even table sugar just pure glucose) even if it fits into their calorie intake? What about when it is IV glucose? I never used to care about it if it fit my calories when I was younger but now that I'm 30 I've found it really is starting...
  3. Anorexia Discussions
    So I've heard conflicting opinions on this and was wondering what the majority say. Some say any food or drinks at all other than water break a fast while I have also been told that as long as its under 50 cals you remain in ketosis and are still in fasting mode. Please tell me your take on...

    No one wants to talk about it but I know loads of us go through this. Atm I do 24hr fasts and mono a small amount of liquid nutrition once a day, and I don't drink water at all except to take my pills cause the way water makes the scale fluctuate makes me super anxious. I know that's not good...

  7. Fasting and Cleansing
    Okay so I relapsed last summer (primarily high restriction) and lost approx 30 lbs (135-105) but since the beginning of this summer I've been struggling with binging/purging. I am 100% not interested in recovery's "normal eating" and "weight restoration," but the binging had really made me...
  8. Fasting and Cleansing
    Hello! I was wondering. I want to specifically lose body fat % during my fasts. I know that fasting eventually leads to ketosis. But is there a point where you get kicked out of ketosis during a fast? Any information or sources are appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Low Carb Diets
    I was starting a water fast. What is the difference between a fat fast and water fast? I know you consume 90% fat on one, but in terms of fat loss and entering ketosis, which of them is preferable? I have tried fat fast with success before. But how does it compare to water fast in terms of...
  10. Low Carb Diets
    I've been doing keto for a few weeks now and the hardest thing about it for me is that I haven't had unhealthy, carb-loaded food that I love so much and used to b/p. I thought maybe I can reward myself with a huge carb meal and then purge by throwing up and maybe exercising right after. I'm just...
  11. Fasting and Cleansing
    Hey Everyone, I have been doing intermittent fasting for the last 25 days and hadn't gotten the metallic taste that everyone mentions once you enter autophagy. I was starting to get disappointed despite losing five pounds, but today it happened! I started a 48 hour fast to test my willpower and...

    Hey, so anyone know what I'm talking about? It happens when your body is eating your fat stores (and muscle stores too?) and it makes your mouth have an awful taste in it and your breath smell bad. I've been chewing gum but that only does so much. Yo I'm not even a low weight! Has this...
  13. Low Carb Diets
    So I've been eating very low carb because I'm treating my SIBO and I've also just naturally craved protein, fats and vegetables I ate carbs today (carb sources: rice cakes, whole wheat flour, berries and artificial sweeteners) I feel SO SICK (fatigue, tired, excessive thirst, bloated...
  14. Low Carb Diets
    I'm torn between Keto Chow and Super Body Fuel's Keto Fuel. Both are nutritionally complete with vitamins and electrolytes. It makes counting calories and staying in ketosis stupidly easy. I'm also currently on a liquid diet so the transition won't be too hard. Has anyone else used them and...
  15. Low Carb Diets
    Hi everyone! I want to start documenting my recent journey regarding Intermittent Fasting and zerocarb/keto. I started this way of eating in an attempt to stop my binging and purging habit, I've been bulimic for 5 years or so and my weight has been up and down but pretty stable around 110-115...
