For the past four years of my life Iâve been obsessing over food. It started with purging, then went to anorexia, then to binging, then to restricting, and then back to binging and purging. I count calories religiously and Iâm so sick of this taking over my life.
I think about food all the time. I dream about it. I eat and eat and I can no longer feel full. Itâs sick and it makes me hate myself. Even if the scale number goes down I look at myself and donât feel satisfied. I know all this is destroying my body and itâs scary.
Hereâs my question: how much harm would it do to my body if I went on the cabbage diet? I read about it online and it seems like a good start for me to conquer this addiction. Iâm not doing this to lose weight. I just want to get over food and stop counting my calories. It seems like a good idea to me because I already donât eat a variety of foods and I will be eating this only when Iâm hungry. Itâll also help me clean out all the nasties (I believe) and Iâll drop drinking soda completely. I know I can do this and follow through with it, and I know it will be hard.
But Iâm worried. How much damage might this do to my body metabolism and growth wise? I know Iâve already messed those up, but thereâs no reason to do anymore harm. Iâm also EXTREMELY worried about the mood effects. After the binging/purging period my mood has plunged so far to the point I couldnât see a future. Iâve finally pulled up considerably and Iâve been getting happy about things, but Iâm not fully there yet (I think the whole addiction thing is straining my mood now). Iâm afraid Iâll go back to that and lose all my energy.
If this diet doesnât seem like a good one, please give me more ideas. Suggestions like âdonât do anything else while your eatingâ, âsitting down at the tableâ, and âconcentrating on what youâre eatingâ wonât work since I already do those. Iâm not mindlessly eating.
