I guess this is the place to post.
I was always a chubby kid and teen. My dr put me on ritalin, concerta, adderall ( we switched all over) for a legit learning issue (discalculic & have reading spelling issues if u can’t tell 😉
This pills naturally curbed my hunger and I was thin for the 1st time in my life. I still ate on them. I just ate less during the day and kinda ate a lot at night – but it evened out my weight.
Now at 30 I’m off of the meds. – Its just time.
But Ive been off them for 3 months – and I’m STILL binge eating like crazy. Why did the meds make me not binge eat? What hormones did they supplement or suppress?
I believe it’s dopamine and endorphins right?
How can I overcome this without meds? I already excercise daily. but I need help. It’s NOT emotional. It’s VERY VERY hormonal and chemical. How can I fix my broken brain?
