Well, since the recommended intake of fruits and vegetables is 9+ servings a day now, I seriously doubt you did any major damage to yourself. It's very difficult to gain weight on nothing but vegetables.
I'd be more concerned if you binged on potato chips, chocolate, pasta, fried food, ice cream, or some other food that is unhealthy in such large amounts.
Given the water content of vegetables, I wouldn't worry too much. Raw mushrooms and green beans are about 90% water and don't have that many calories. The amount of fibre could be slightly problematic, but that will pass (no pun intended).
how is your typical diet? my theory is that all binges happen due to lack of proper eating during the day. my nutrionist i used to see taught me this and i believe it now.. like, if someone binges on potato chips every night, it might be less the taste and more that they don't get enough (healthy) fats during the day. therefore, your mind tells you to binge binge binge because it's craving the fats or whatever your missing. so maybe your not eating enough, or enough veggies?
murry i think ur right i have slipped back in my eating disorder and havnt been eating very well ......... i was on my own and i dont think it really matter what the food was it was a binge never the less i wasnt hungry , my stomic hurt
Best of luck, SpecialK. Have you tried seeing a nutritionist and getting on a set path to eating healthy?
As was said, what you did will not cause you any short-term harm. However, if you start doing this repeatedly then it can do harm. You are lucky to not have thrown up for overeating. Anytime I eat too much I'm on my knees in front of the toilet in an hour or less.
I hope you can find ways to beat this issue. I will keep you in my thoughts.
well there's bigger issues going on here than what i am about to address but it's all i can think to offer at the moment.
after a binge... drink water. seriously. i have a problem binging occasionally and being full is really terrible. and yeah it feels ****ty and can make you feel like eating raw vegetables was bad. but it won't do damange. no matter how full you are just drink water, it'll help you calm down and put things in perspective. and see that vegetables can't be unhealthy even in that amount. it sounds like a stupid little tip but it honestly makes a world of difference, especially if you drink a lot that night. you'll feel better the next morning.
