Jenni Schaefer Quotes: During The Worst Stages Of My Eating

During The Worst Stages Of My Eating Disorder, I Was All-or-none With Food-either Bingeing Or Not Eating. Much Of My Experience Was, In Fact, That If I Ate Anything, I Would Eat Everything. I Began To Understand That This Happened Because I Was Starving Myself. In Starvation Mode, My Body Literally Thought I Was Facing A Famine. It Didn't Know That I Was Living Near A Grocery Store And Several Fast-food Restaurants. Thinking I Was Facing A Real Food Shortage, Its Primal Instinct Was To Binge On Large Amounts Of Food, Conserving Fat In Preparation For The Hard Times Ahead.
