As you grocery shop for the next month, slowly add healthy snacks to your shopping list, and don't buy the unhealthy binge foods you used to eat. It's easier to adapt to a gradual change, and you'll end up with a fridge/pantry full of yummy snacks that won't get you into too much trouble!
I love to snack, and have a hard time with binges. Now, when I want to binge my choices are fruits, veggies, raw almonds, air popped popcorn, etc. I can only eat so many strawberries..they satisfy my sweet craving, don't leave me feeling guilty. I'm down 25 pounds since Jan '10.

My worst habit is eating mindlessly in front of the TV. To remember to use food for fuel and nutrition and not a past time, I created a "NOW EXITING FOOD ZONE" sticky and posted it to my kitchen entry way. When I leave the kitchen, I remember food can't come with me, so no more snacking on the couch!
I live in a vintage building and my kitchen has doors that can be closed. I've created a "Kitchen is Closed" sign. After meal time is done and I've cleaned up, the kitchen doors are closed and the sign goes up. This will remind me not to graze between meals or pre-planned snacks.
