Last week, I mentioned that my treatment center provided a foundation on which I based my transformation. Basically, the eating strategy in treatment consisted of eating what I wanted in normal portions when I wanted, eating balanced meals and no bingeing. Diets were not a welcome strategy but exercise was encouraged in moderation and only doing something you liked. I followed an “exchange” program to help normalize my eating and to ensure balanced meals…it felt like a diet. Remember Weight Watchers when they had the exchanges? It felt like that.
During day treatment, I had no binges and followed the eating plan pretty well (I was in perfection mode!) Once I stepped down to the evening program and went back to work, it all pretty much flew out the window although the binges weren’t as frequent or intense. Once I quit my job and moved home, I felt like I was starting over once again.
I’d like to find out more? I’d like to find out some additional information.
I’m happy to provide additional information. What would you like more information on?
