cravings getting the best of you,? Before you reach for that comfort food grab a carrot or apple, if possible wait until you've eaten your 5 servings of fruits/veggies , They provide bulk and will reduce your desire.
Often when we binge all needed foods get set aside causing us to continue to binge do to empty stomachs, and fluctuating sugar levels.
If you are like me, some days you just eat worse than other days. In order to keep track of how much JUNK I'm eating, I made a meal category called "Junk Food" and I put all sweets, chips, etc there, regardless of what time of day I eat them. That way all non-food is in one place and I can see how MUCH of it I've consumed in a day. If I start to binge out on any one day, I can easily see how "out of control" I"m letting it get.
