This video is so timely for me. I decided to lower the fat on my plate and ended up getting hungry quite fast after a meal which had me binge eating and craving carbs. Now within this weekend alone the scale went up about 5 pounds. I will continue to eat the required far so that I am satisfied. I was trying to lower it to try to burn some of my own fat but clearly that's a no no for me.
My question for those who struggle with this is…where does choice come in? And why do eating disorders get talked about as if there is a lack of personal agency and choice? Are binges something where a person blanks out and doesn't consciously realize what they're doing? My sister struggles with various forms of disordered eating, and for years I've been just confused by this. Because it seems to me that there is choice involved. It may not FEEL like a choice, but…unless something subconscious takes over and a person loses a degree of choice, I just don't understand why this happens. When I fall off my wagon, it's always a choice. Of course it is. Even if my hormones are raging, and my emotions are blaring…it's a choice. Is there something about an eating disorder then that removes or inhibits personal choice? Any insights would be helpful.
So brave! Thank you sisters ♡ I hope everyone takes time for self care every single day this week. You're all worth it! Leanne, October will be 3 years on Keto for me when i found you. Thank you for being a brave soldier and sharing your story and what you've learned with us. I have gotten many women on Keto at the gym I've run for 9 years. ♡
I am curious, though, how you would respond to someone who says that all diets (including keto) fail, and often lead to eating disorders? I feel like keto is the one diet that helps people break free from eating disorders, but a lot of people would disagree with me.
Raw, painful, real. Thank you for sharing. I found this motivating and helpful. Reminds me of two of my favorite Keto Savage Podcast Episodes… Danny Vega and Teresa Dodd. Also, so SO SOOO glad you were on Robert's podcast. I adore him and you're both heavy hitters in your respective ketospheres so it was magical to have you two together.
