Tips for avoiding binges?
Over the last few months binging has been an issue for me and has led me to gain weight. I know how to eat properly and am fairly successful at doing this most of the time, however when i get the urge to binge, I just go on a spiral of self-destruct and can eat until I feel physically sick without even enjoying what i am putting in my mouth. One of my triggers is unexpected situations cropping up that I hadnt planned for- e.g if someone was to bring cake in and I would have a piece, I would then feel that I had ruined my day of eating well and would just proceed to binge. However if i had known about it in advance I would feel that it was ok to have it and just plan my day around it if that makes sense? Another trigger is having a variety of cakes biscuits and chocolate in the house, which I therefore avoid doing, but find it more difficult when staying at my parents house at the weekend where this is readily available. Thirdly I would probably say that a day alone in the house can trigger this, not sure if its out of boredom or just the fact that I can if nobody is there to see me.
Although I have identified my triggers, Im not sure how to move forward. Has anyone had any previous experience with this and have any advice for dealing with it?
Re: Tips for avoiding binges?
Keep triggers away
Don't have money to buy binge food (leave card at home)
If it triggers don't buy it!!!
I try not to keep treats etc in. Instead I will buy a freddo or single popcorn .. Rather than multi pack!
