🍁For those who had been asking me if I had a keto thanksgiving, yes I did and it was beyond easy to do (if you were following my stories, you’d know this!). FYI- I filmed this when I woke up this morning, hence the raspy voice + puffy face 😂
👉🏼Anyways, you guys know eating a HFLC diet completely changed my relationship with food and disordered eating habits.
Well for the first time in 6 month (post-starting HFLC diet 9 months ago), ⚠️ I had a binge eating episode… from Black Friday to Sunday. *GASP* 🚨
🤷🏼♀️Now, it wasn’t that bad at all.. it was actually the best binge eating episode I’ve had (I owe that to my diet + better equipped emotional, mental habits) ! I ate completely keto-friendly foods while doing so and tried different methods and strategies during the few days to help. SO, I will be sharing with you the top strategies that worked for me in a Youtube video! For now, here is my first tip for working with a binge eating episode. TBH, there’s no miracle strategy but I was shocked (especially in retrospective) how pleasant the episode was. •
😰I was really really really disappointed at first. I couldn’t believe what was happening (or maybe I could, idk).. I remember thinking like WHAT THE HELL!! 🤷🏼♀️ Ive worked so hard to get to where I am, why is this happening. Feeling anxious and yucky, and sad. I get this feeling like bugs are crawling under my skin and I just feel dirty. 🐛🐜🕷🐌ANWAYS. On that note lol No, but looking back now. Im so proud of myself!!! It was pretty hard at first to accept what happened, to want to be nice to myself and be kind post-binge, and to move forward. I felt like such a failure and it’s easy to get in a self-absorbed and self-loathing mindset. I think the most powerful thing I did was just try my hardest to be kind and loving to myself post everything. Why is being nice to yourself sometimes so hard to do?!?! I totally feel anyone who struggled this thanksgiving with eating.. 🚨Holiday season can be a real pain in the ass and a total test for those of us who struggle with it. 🤶🏼I will be posting throughout the holiday season a ton of content on binging, disordered eating habits, etc 💛🤶🏼💛
