You may want to look into OA (Overeaters Anon). Binging, no matter what food you're consuming, isn't a healthy coping mechanism. I definately empathise with your struggle and wish you nothing but happiness and success.

I'm glad you made it through. It's not easy and I to binge from time to time. I try to follow all the tricks, drink a full glass of water, wait 20 minutes, try doing something else to monopolize your time. Some days it works and some it doesn't. However, you made healthy choices so be very proud of yourself!

Ok so I've been working out now for just over a month. Which has also included changing my eating as well. Trying to eat more healthly , less quick bad choice meals (both home meals and fast food).
However the excersizing has been easier to add into my lifestyle than better eating habits. (Worse habit not eating anything all morning until late afternoon or early evening)
However I've always had a problem with binge eating. Basically eating a whole bunch of everything. I'm still having binge cravings like the feelings to just eat everything in my kitchen or just over eat. I also find that even when I eat healthier or eat throughout the day I still want to eat very often like every 20-40 mins.
I know you can make even good things for you bad by over doing it.
Anyone else experiencing this or has in the past? When did the feeling stop (Like how long after you started changing your life style) ? What things did you do to make you stop wanting to eat all the time?
