The past few weeks my binge eating has got really bad again. It is at the point where I am eating an entire cake that serves 6 right now and I feel disgusting. Because tomorrow is the start of a new month I want to try and change but want some advice. Any tips you have for stopping binging for good would really help. Most of mine is caused by other MH issues making me feel bad. Eating makes me feel good etc.

Limit what you eat. Every time you feel hungry ask yourself if you want an apple. If the answer is no then you are probably just bored.

Change to healthier food ish. You don’t have to go wild on veg and fruit but swap some cake for rice crackers.

Try foods that fill you up after only eating a little. Use Google.

Start exercising it makes you happy.

Try meditation and mindfulness.

Good luck!

Tuna and rice works for me... fills you up but little weight gain. Plus.... is very healthy.

I get what you mean. I also find people don't take it seriously as they just think that you mean that you ate a few too many cookies one night. At my worst I could eat 5 donuts, 5 brownies and more in one sitting yet nothing would stop the urge to eat

Drink water! Do that every time you get the urge to binge because it’ll fill you up and it’s zero calories. Also dehydration can increase feelings of hunger sometimes too.

Choose your munchies more selectively. Tuna, rice and a pint of water. Can't eat doughnuts if already full... simples.

GET A NEW HOBBY!

Honestly, I had the same problem and I tried everything. Drinking water, negotiating with myself, asking myself if I am hungry, rationalising and other mindful techniques. It was all bs. At the end, I would be like f*** it and just binge eat.

Then I changed my lifestyle. Started going out more. Started studying in the library instead of at home. Started watching netflix with friends so I wouldn't eat by myself. and started taking dance and piano classes. Once I got myself busy, things changed for the better. So my advice from personal experience would be: GET BUSY and don't be alone for too long. Good luck!

Agreed... plus tuna and rice is very yummy. More so than doughnuts!

Vinny C What's with you and tuna and rice? Is this some kind of weird obsession I am not getting?

also, I turned vegan, so that helped a lot. Can't find many processed vegan foods and too lazy to cook.

Please dont @ me for being vegan.

You’re weak!

Try:

2 full tubs of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough
6 chocolate kinder bueons
Big bar of chocolate galaxy
6 packs of prawn cocktail crisps


...this was at my worst btw. I would eat all that in less than 1 hour
