Am currently working on a Binge-Free Streak. I want to complete one month of being Binge Free!

I am a painting major (a painter) in my sophomore year of college and I've developed an issue with Emotional Eating that started in my first year of college. I've come a long way and I am in great physical shape. I go to the gym every morning and I eat only whole fruits, vegetables, natural sources of protein such as nuts and beans with the exception of not being natural: soymilk, tofu, and occasional vegan substitutes such as vegan meatballs and veggie burgers. And no bread, sugar, salt, vegan substitutes for butter and other similar substitutes, candy, and all processed foods besides the few vegan/healthier choices.
I take pride in the way that I choose to eat. It is not a diet and I do not feel deprived. I eat in response to how I know it will make me feel and what I need.

Also, I do eat foods like quinoa or whole wheat pasta on rare occasions. These rare occasions are when I really simply just want to have quinoa with my meal one night. And it happens occasionally because it is satisfying for me to have those types of foods once in a while. And I always feel good about it and I only ever need very small quantities of them. And when I go out with friends or my parents to dinner, I eat what I want from the menu but I always just naturally want healthier and smaller portions and I usually get something that I know doesn't involve a lot of processed foods/oils/or bad carbs. And what's better is if it's a really special occasion or if I actually go out to a nice vegan restaurant (which is rare!) and they have a banging pumpkin pie cheese cake: I'm going to have a slice of that cheesecake! And feel good about it.

However, when I binge all of that is discarded. I've eaten boxes of cookies and chips and so much else that on a normal day, I find repulsive. But when I binge I am almost a completely different person.

My Goals:
1. To get out of the habit of impulsively snacking and over-snacking.

2. To maintain a healthy and balanced diet.

3. Keep the carbs low



My Program:
SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker is my own personal Nutrition Supervisor.
I know that if I eat a bag of chips impulsively I will have to report it to my tracker.
I also know that I will not like what I see when the numbers add up.

The Nutrition Tracker provides me with a solid system and way of thinking rationally when I want to eat oh so irrationally.

I'm so glad to hear! How do you like the 10-minute Spark videos so far? I'm *attempting* to complete the Spring Into Shape Bootcamp Challenge, but I keep getting behind.
