22 Year old male. Compulsive overeater. Have been down the psychologist path in the past only to be told I need to include some food that is a reward once a week, that item being a good quality ice cream. Sounds alot like a cheat meal to me and guess what led me to where I am today, good old cheat meals. I am quite sure that sugar and to some extent gluten grains are the major players in the addictiveness of these foods and the relapsing of binge eating tendencies. So I am looking for advice. I am of a pretty high level of fitness, sub 50minute 10km, near double bodyweight backsquat etc but hold alot more weight than someone of my training level should. Is a whole30 with the goal to try and kick the sugar cravings/addicition worth a crack? Say a whole30 incorporating a big protein breaky kruse style and then eating my other two meals in the window after my two workouts? I've run out of ideas and just want to be able to live a normal life again where I don't have to deal with feeling like shit, bloated, depressive etc for a few days every few weeks due to a binge.
Thanks in advance.
