I just downloaded the book a few days ago and haven't finished reading it, but I immediately started the structured eating. I feel better already.
I am 72 years old and have been bulimic since I was in my 20's. It started when I was pregnant with my first child and had severe nausea and heartburn. My husband suffered from ulcers and often had an upset stomach. He suggested I do what he did when he felt sick at his stomach--make myself vomit. I had never done that before.
After that baby was born, I began gaining weight, and I started using the vomiting to "undo" my overeating. I continued to gain weight, tried every diet, including diet pills. My weight problem kept getting worse and worse, and I was often severely bulimic but had short periods where I was eating "healthy" with a lot of restricting.
Everything I have read so far in this program makes absolute sense to me. It feels like the structured eating alone could help me stop binging, hence stop purging. I have no problem at all with doing the structured eating. In fact, I really enjoy eating that way. I also used the thought diffusion once when I was in the candy aisle of a store and had a binge urge. It worked!
I really believe this program will work if I apply it fully and stick with it.
