It wasn’t a cream cake, it wasn’t chocolate, I came in from work and ate a large amount of shredded, yes tasteless shreddies, yet when I can in the could have been like a drug. They tasted amazing and I wanted quantity.
I have no idea why. I realised at the time I would regret it. Yet I was thinking sod it they’re great. What’s wrong with me?! Thought I would share my scariness.
I had had lunch but I was really hungry prior but not because I hadn’t had breakfast - I had but that was at 6 am! So by two pm when I had lunch I was starving. Then had quite a lot of work to do but came home and raided the cereal.
I’m feeling quite anxious as of late wondering if that’s effecting things too.
Halfwit think that was too much. I would have thought shreddies wouldn’t be too bad but I know myself and carbs are my downfall, I’m not saying carbsa are bad per se but I’m very good at overeating them!
Your CNS is fuelled by carbs, so it makes sense that you crave them when you're anxious. Don't ask for the science behind that as I can't bloody remember now, but it was explained to me by my psychiatrist (I think) years ago. It might be worth looking into if you're interested in getting "answers".
I'm a very good over-eater of carbs myself, so I understand the feeling.
Bramrang have you managed to overcome the carb cravings? I am presuming you are empathising with the anxiety and Possibly associated carb cravings? In that moment nothing could stop me. Shameful I can hold down a decent job, manage children, a family but yet can devour cereal like a bulldozer truck and think why on earth did I do that!
I haven't, but I'm doing well at avoiding binges by actually eating enough carbs throughout the day. Some people have had success going low-carb high fat to counteract the cravings but that just didn't work for me. Potatoes, sweet potatoes and fruit (mainly bananas) have been my saviour so far. It still happens sometimes, but usually when I let myself get too hungry.
Yes bramrang always alone and find I actually enjoy food less when with others (There’s a difference between enjoying food and bingeing which I know you will relate to). Hmm interesting I don’t know which way to go. The not getting too hungry will be helpful yet I have found that snack regularly advice y helpful as can spend the whole day snacking, I’m quite a habit forming person. Thanks again for your support
