Contrave is a diet pill. It supposed help with compulsive eating disorders like binge eating.I think you might have meant C and, yes, that's what I do. I do it because it's the only thing that quiets the insane cravings I have for food. I do it because I can make it a routine that supports me.
I had a particularly hard time getting started this time. It took me about 3 years. But, previously I did if for 3 years and lost 50 pounds and had a much more calm and focused life.
Once I get my body balanced and my food urges under control it's simplicity itself.
Can't say I know what Contrave is. Can you tell us more about it? Beyond Contrave (which I take to be a med of some kind), what kind of plan do you follow? What kind of food choices?
Carbs are horrible, insidious, delicious things! I'm glad you put them behind you and had such great results. I have to eliminate them too to be free of cravings and able to make better food choices.
Congrats!!! How did you do that? How did you identify the GMOs in foods? Were GMOs the only thing you eliminated?
I've been fat since I started kindergarten so it's tough for me to relate but Dr. Michael Mosley who pioneered intermittent fasting did it not because he was fat but because he developed diabetes. He talks a lot about thin "fat" people whose body fat is internal and just as damaging to health even if it's not apparent.
But, of course, you'll have to decide what's right for you. And I would imagine just beating the sugar demon would make a big change for you. Sugar is one of the very worst foods on absolutely every authority's list. So good luck tackling the sugar demon!!
Good for you! That sounds like what I call white knuckling it and it's HARD so if you can do it my hat's off to you!
I eat healthy and well because being in a Asian family from Okinawa we typically eat healthy. It's when I go on a binge and loose control I can seriously eat anything I get my hands on and then some more. Menopause and fibromyalgia has not helped. I used to be athletic in my my younger days and never, even after having many children had a weight problem so it's been hard for me mentally. I weigh more now than when i was 9 months pregnant with any of my children. I won't even mention what I weigh now; To be sure more than I should,
But I'm going to get my butt in gear and get it under control before it effects my blood pressure or gives me diabetes. I think the intermittent fast you talked about might be something I can handle. I'ma look more into it. Thanks!
