    What were your reasons for restricting your food intake?

    Evidence shows that those dealing with ED issues have various reasons for restricting what they eat. What are / were yours? (please remember Forum Guidelines) Thanks, amathus.

    ED - side effects

    For three weeks I've had reduced sensation in my left foot coupled with a weakness to flex my foot, this is probably the result of restricting right? If so, should I tell my GP when she next sees me or will I only get the third degree?

Apparently, the binging type is more dangerous than the restrictive cos of the effect on the heart, etc. Despite having had...

    Kind of want to restrict again

    I'm coming to the conclusion that I just can't eat properly. Since I started increasing my calorie intake & allowing myself to eat sugary food, that's all i want to pick at. I'm a sugar addict :( I felt healthier when I was restricting, I just feel stodgy & full, with these sugar cravings that...
