Tufts, no offense hon, but you seriously have to think about what you're doing to yourself. Is wasting away just for the sake of a dress size worth your health? Eating healthily and eating limited amounts of certain foods are very different things. Be totally honest on here or to yourself, how much do you eat a day? How many calories do you consume a day? What do you define to be bingeing or over eating and why do you think you do it? Cutting out food isn't the way to go for your body,and just because it works for you or your body doesn't make it the right thing to do.
Everything can be eaten, its just that some things need to be eaten in moderation. Your body needs saturated fats, juast not too much, so as long as you eat something thats relatively high in sat fats occasionally, but also by sticking to the healthy diet and making sure you're getting your RDAs of everything else you should be fine. I'm not on a diet as such, I'm just cutting out the regular naughtiness I used to have and eating naughty foods in moderation. Your body still needs occasional fatty food as you need fat to survive, most of your energy comes from the fat you consume, and your body will rely on its fat reserves at times of low energy or food intake, for example, when you are ill. I eat healthily, but I still treat myself to chips or something every once in a while. Besides, your body will crave such things, and if you cut them out for too long you'll be craving them even more.
Tufts I never said you had an ED nor was I implying it. I just expressing my concern that you're not eating enough. I used the word wasting away because you were talking about size 6 clothes etc. Nevermind.
I think it might mean less than 5g of SATURATED fat, as you only should eat about 20g of that a day, but you should definately be eating around 70g of fat...
