It takes weeks or months to reset our urge cycles in the brain, but only one week to undo them.So set goals for moderate eating, but stick to them very strictly! Rabid moderation! It will take some effort and manipulation, but it is not necessary for most people to eat a severely restricted diet. In fact, if you're not going to completely cut out certain foods forever, it's better to work small amounts in periodically. The charge on them decreases over time if we don't overeat them. Restricting and then overeating them increases their power in the brain chemically!

Plan delicious meals and then divert, divert, divert when there's an urge. emoticon

Last week i was soo hormonal i new if i didn't figure it out i was going to binge. I decided to get my salty/sugar cravings in check. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich did it and then i packed pisatchios in my lunch pail and fruit. I avoided a major disaster. Yester day i made one peanut butter cookie and i thumbprinted it and filled it with raspberry jelly. my craving was filled and it was only 70 calories because i split the cookie dough in half ;) i have a little machine i can bake in single servings stuff (redi set go mchine)

I've been having problems lately with bingeing and overeating, too. Those are some great words of advice! I'm trying to remember that there isn't such thing as "good" foods and "bad" foods. I was on an extremely strict diet the past 2 1/2 years, and although I lost lots of weight, I now have this black and white attitude toward food. My therapist is also reminding me (as yours did) that moderation is the key.

I ought to print out your post and put it out in the kitchen for me to read now and then! emoticon

Try not to make yourself feel depreived cut back you and go lo carb but not to an extreme it is those extremes that send you into binge mode. My therapist has indicated to me in order to stay binge free i am to eat healthy but not to feel deprived if you say all foods are bad and you can't have it you will want them, so all in moderation 80% of the time you get it right on your choices find the way to make substitutes to things you like. You can get back on track take one meal at a time and find things to keep yourself busy. Also journal your emotions on why you are eating, are you upset, happy or just doing it. I find it helpful. I've been binge free for over 112 days :)

2 weeks ago, I made 2 weeks not binging and even sticking to SB phase 1. For the last 10 days I've binged almost every day. Got to get back on track again. I will get through today hour by hour without binging.
