starches and sugars increase your cravings.
for a sweet craving, try fresh fruit with pb or a small piece of cheese
for a starch craving try roasted chickpeas or bake some sweet potatoes and keep them in the fridge for when you crave carbs.
Substituting a craving with healthy options that have nutritional value will give you good nutrition with fiber to help satisfy the binge is less time.

if it's a binge craving...try analyzing what's really bothering you.

I binged on carbs and sweets last night and felt sick afterward and filled with regret. I know that it's not a good thing to do, but I keep binging at night and feeling guilt and shame afterward. It's been a problem for years. Any suggestions?

I struggle with this issue myself. What is important is you forgive yourself and move on.

In addition to what has been said already, I wonder how big of a bag are we talking about here? The single serving one or something bigger like a one pound bag or the gigantic warehouse store sized bag?

If it's the single serving bag, it honestly isn't a huge deal. That can work into your calories for the day. If you managed to eat a whole bigger bag, than you may want to look into why you binged it. Have you put peanut M&Ms completely off limits? Have you had some stress in your life? How has your nutrition been otherwise? Sometimes a binge can signal poor nutrition choices.

it's done - you cannot undo it. But you can learn from it!

It is much easier to say no ONCE at the store...so, as Luann said - don't buy them.

I don't buy my 'trigger' foods, because if I do, I know I will over indulge.

Quit buying peanut M&Ms.

I ate an entire bag of peanut m&ms last night. I am so angry with myself. I don't even know why I did it. I haven't done this in a long time...so why now? How do I recover?
