What Was Your Craziest Binge?
I'm a recovering binge eater. I can look back on it now with lots of compassion for myself, and even a bit of humor. It was nothing short of hellish when I was in it.
One of my greatest hits was a quart of sugar-free butter pecan ice cream, dumped in a bowl and melted in the microwave until it was the consistency of a thick ice cream soup.
The chex mix would get crushed and poured over the ice cream soup, creating a salty sweet concoction. I know, it's beyond bizarre.
Another chex mix story: my aunt made a huge batch of "party mix" for Christmas, which is a tradition in our family. I ate all of the cereal out of it in one night. I will never forget my aunt asking where the party mix was, like 20 times, because all that was left was a huge Tupperware of mixed nuts, and I kept saying "I ate it, I ate all of it, it's gone" and she couldn't wrap her brain around it. The roof of my mouth was shredded for a couple days after that.
Another favorite binge was 5-6 bags of microwave popcorn. This one would take hours to consume. I was very busy.
Anyone out there have a crazy binge story they want to share? Bring it.
