To answer ur 1st question I’m 15 and from Wisonsin, usa.
And second of all I used to have alot of trouble with sneaking food too and then I always got horrible headachs afterwords. Let me tell you I’ve meet a few adults who were off diet for a few years and it is so not worth it…it’s just easier to stay on.
It’s been so long that I’ve had this kind of a problem and even when I did it sort of went away in time. Do you ever get like any sort of low protien foods like from cambrooke or baked goods or stuff? because sometimes it helps to have some kind of food that is lower in phe that you like so you can have that instead…
