I'm in the U.S., not UK, I hope that's all right. Do you have any insights as to what causes you to binge? I am not an expert by any means, but the two things I can think of that may cause a binge is stress/mindless eating--which sounds like you hinted to, and waiting too long to eat, and then you are starving and eat too much from waiting too long.
Have you ever kept a journal? This may help, to write down your feelings when the binge urges come up, and then you could get a better grasp of why. Lots of times, when we see the why, it helps us to figure out what to do about it.
I am an emotional eater, in that it is really hard for me to plan meals, I get too distracted to take time to sit there and make a plan for myself. I end up not knowing what I want to eat until I want to eat it. And then the times I get upset for something, I can't seem to eat...and the times I get so busy I forget to eat.
One thing that helps me a lot is to pretty much eat the same breakfast every morning, it reduces the need to plan, and another thing, I try to time my meals so that I am eating a small healthy meal every 2-4 hours so that I don't go too long in between meals, which helps prevent the overeating once I realize I did not eat.
I hope it helps! Good luck!
