I have been a binge eater for my entire life. As others have said I do track my food. I think it is better to track while you are doing it because when you see how much you are eating it could stop you. That being said I very rarely do that even thought I think it is a good idea.

Afterward I try to control the feelings of shame, failure etc that inevitably follow. This can be self destructive.

Plan you meals for a few days more carefully than normal to get back into a routine.

Exercise. If you are in the habit of exercise make sure you keep to it and if not walk somewhere. Besides the physiological benefits of exercise it does wonders for your mind

Yes, drinking water really helps control binge eating.

First track your binge. If you see it written down you know it really happened and you will try not to do it again later on down the road. And sometimes it's not as bad as you thought it was.

Second, start drinking that water! The day after a binge, I always drink AT LEAST 16 cups of water. The more water I drink the more I mentally feel like I'm flushing out what I did.

I know some people like to have a binge day ever now and then because they think it tricks their bodies and their metabolism. And for some this does work. I had a binge weekend, and still lost a pound today (Thursday) on my weigh in day. But I made sure that the past four days that I tracked every little thing I ate as well as all of my exercise.

Most importantly don't give up and don't harp on yourself. We all have moments and this was just one ripple in the ocean. You are making big strides to better yourself and all that matters is that you keep pushing through! Best of luck to you!

Here's what I do:

1. Drink lots of water. This helps to fill me up and slow down my desire to keep eating junk.
2. Track what I ate during the binge to the best of my recollection.
3. Make a menu plan for the rest of the week of healthy comfort foods.

It's not about punishing your body. It's about helping your body get going again and helping your mind to realize that it's not worth worrying.

I find weekends so difficult and I have certainly veered off my healthy eating plans at times (last weekend, 2 parties, disaster)
BUT
The previous 2 posters have given excellent advice.
You just gotta shake it off and put that train back on the tracks.
You got this!

I've read that it helps some people to still track their binges. This helps you understand that the damage you do with one binge isn't the end of the world. It certainly isn't more than a few pounds (if that).

Create daily meal plans.
Purchase all needed foods.
Weigh and measure all portions.
Use the SP Food Tracker.
Get in your daily exercise.

Don't beat yourself up! It happens to everyone. Just get back up, dust yourself off, and get back to your plan!
