These are some of my favorite foods: ice cream, pizza, Doritos, butter chicken, peanut butter, chocolate, East Asian food, wine, fish, KFC, sushi, blueberries, coffee, mushrooms
These are the foods that I really don't like: asparagus, cauliflower, red and green peppers, potatoes, rice
This is how I feel about breakfast: Delicious! but sometimes not filling enough.
I have a hard time controlling my eating when I'm feeling: when I hit my “low” weight and feel like binging it back because why not?, when I’m bored at work or when I’m bored at night and feel like eating to entertain myself.
I do really well eating in these situations: when I’m in the middle of my weight range and have incentive to hit the “low” weight, when I’m on vacation, when I’m busy.
I have a hard time limiting my portions when I eat: anything during a binge
This is how I feel about eating out in restaurants: it’s a little scary, I have to try hard to not mindlessly overeat.
I would describe my food philosophy like this: moderately restrict for a few days, then when I hit my “low” weight, do a planned binge. This gets at my desire to let loose and not worry about food for at least a day.
I feel strong and healthy when I eat: just enough to be full – not overeat or undereat. Doesn’t matter what food it is. I have to be working out too to feel this way.
Am I a grazer or a binger? Right now my food personality tends to be: always and currently, a binger.
I'm really good at: yoga, running, being good for a few days at a time, beating myself up if I’m not good for a few days at a time.
I'm afraid of these foods: icecream, chocolate, chips
I would like to change these things about my eating: not have to be so careful all the time, focus more on how I feel instead of behaving according to the number on the scale.
I believe I'm Naturally Thin because: I don’t like feeling overfull and I don’t like to eat too much of the same thing. I think if I had been left alone when I was younger and not had all the pressures from family to be thin, I would have been a naturally thin person. Currently I am slim but it seems like an effort when it shouldn’t be.
