I find what works for me is if I workout really hard, then I feel bad putting junk in my mouth,

Only because I know how long & hard I worked to take the calories off, so if you work out it may help get you back on track!!

Good Luck!

I found that when I finally managed to get one day in totally binge free and junk free, it gave me such a boost that the next day was easier, and the one after that easier still. The kicker was getting that first day. Took me awhile, but if I can do it, so can you.

Here's my biggest trick for getting back on track when I'm in dire straits: try making only positive goals, rather than restrictive ones.

Focus on all the good food you CAN eat right now, and absolutely do not make a list of forbidden or bad foods.
My goto great food is a genuinely delicious big ole avocado salad. Try to not eat past the point of comfort with anything, but if you do, let it be okay for right now.
Every minute you spend eating to your comfort level and then stopping reenforces and strengthens your good habits.
Keep track of each time you did well, not each time you feel short somehow. If it's something easy and even fun to do, you'll quickly rack up "good eating episodes," and getting back on track won't feel hard.

You can eat a lot of things without feeling deprivation - a good, healthy, varied diet. Refraining from trigger foods does not mean you are depriving yourself. Rather it's not 'feeding your addiction'.

I agree. I have to stop the junk. I hear what everyone says on here about not depriving myself but I am not a kid I don't need cake and cookies and appetizers and fattening crap. I am done growing. i understand being too strict is not good but I don't need these foods in my life, they just make everything worse. I remember watching a DR OZ show that talked about retraining your eating brain and he said you have to eliminate the foods that you feel are not helping you overall, once you do this over a long period you stop craving them. This is true I did this for almost 2 years and then what did I do, I ate the BS again, and look where I am now, 10 pounds heavier and angry. I need to get back on track. Time to say NO to the little kid and be realistic. Junk is not needed in my life. Period

what ever you do dont deprive yourself .what about as had been said just eating normally,but in a mindfull way. sitting down tasting what you are eating not hiding your eating.
please stop beating your self up and just try to be a kind to you as you can.

I was in your shoes a while ago. I had to stop all sweets for a bit, and then gradually reintroduced them when I had the binging under control. That included knowing my triggers, and learning to eat only when hungry. I had to have a good stable base of healthy eating before I tried sweets again. I also learned to not beat myself up if I had a day where I ate too much. "Normal" eaters do that too. You can turn it around, one day, one hour at a time.

When you are slipping and sliding, and feeling out of control, that is the time to dig deep, look at why you're out of control and what you (can) do about it. A lot of it comes (initially) to being determined to turn things around.

You can do it!

Hi,
Honestly, the fact you may be bingeing is because the "food police" told you you could not have this and you should not have that..all this self control sets someone up to fail..
I have had enough of that.. do not beat yourself up..
the Holidays have good food and good desserts for a reason. It is to celebrate!!!
if you want something to eat, just eat it and then go on and live your life.. Exercise at least 3 times a week for 30 to 40 minutes and try to healthy because it is good for you.. but, you know what.. depriving myself is how I became a compulsive eater.
Dont beat yourself up, food does not control you. I wish you the best and hope you don't let this upset you for much longer.. emoticon

I know where your at. I am there too. I just get on track and then bam there is something infront of me and I say oh, what can one time hurt. And then there is another one time and another and here I am 2 months later, lots of one times and 6 pound heavier. I made a vow today to eat clean foods only. No crap. So yes this means no desert at the holiday celebrations. Like you these unhealthy things are my triggers. Maybe we can do it together to get through the holidays. The first few days are the hardest but you can do it, I know you can!!
