Listed below are a few ways to manage your binge eating habits.
Learn to manage your stress through more effective means.
The culprit behind binge eating usually is excessive stress- stress related to personal life, stress form professional life, stress of being overweight etc. In order to control the binging you need to find healthier ways to handle stress instead of just gorging on heaps of food. A few things you can try out include meditation, exercise or any other therapies that will help you to relax.
Aim to eat healthy, filling, nutritious meals.
Make it a habit to eat healthy foods that are loaded with fiber, protein, good fats and carbs. This will ensure that your hunger hormones stay at bay which as a result will keep you from binging. Do not skip your meals, especially breakfast. Going hungry for long hours will only exacerbate your binging disorder. If you need to snack, help yourself to healthy treats such as fruits, nuts, whole-grain cookies made with honey, oven baked chips etc.
Get rid of the junk food lying in your cupboards.
If there is any junk food lying around the house, it will only tempt you and you probably won’t be able to control the urge to chuck it all down. So get rid of all the unhealthy, processed foods and replace them with healthier versions of those foods such as you could substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate, flour based cupcakes for wholegrain , sugar free cupcakes and so on
