If anyone reads my blog they know i've been struggling with day long binges/cheats/re-feeds, whatever you want to call it. I got really lean for a contest and so far even though i feel like crap the first few days after i binge, my weight gets back to normal and many times even less than the previous week (of course im on a calorie deficit and doing a lot of cardio and liftin) ive basically remained at my one week out weight for 6 weeks (by mid/end of week after cheating)...but still feel guilty and like i am doing harm. ive been trying to google this phenomenon and i've come across a lot of different answers, a lot of broscience etc....can i get some input from this community on this? and yes i know there are psychological issues involved and yes i know i probably have an eating disorder..i really want feedback on the physiological effects
and my cheat days include a lot of vegan junk foods like diaya and desserts and chocolate and nuts...some fruits tho. and im easily putting away 4k calories once a week. 1700-1900 on regular days. thanks!
