If you binge out: Of boredom, then you have too much free time on your hands. I don't know what your potential interests are, but seeing a therapist to help you expand your interests and joining weight watchers and making friends there could be potential places to start. Life is way too interesting to waste it in boredom. Find out what your true interests are and pursue them and cultivate them.

Do you mean Common?: Binge eating can become extremely abnormal. Many folks will overeat at times but not routinely. Thanksgiving, christmas and new years are examples. Red flags fly when we have daily fears of gaining weight, eat too little, cave in and eat too much. Binging guilt leads to purging - forced vomiting or laxatives. Hiding binge food, solitary binging, pretend eating meals are serious binge eating signs.

Don't skip meals: Binge eating sometimes comes from skipping meals and waiting until you are really hungry. Best to eat small, healthy meals frequently. Also it is good to address stress eating. When stressed, you will be tempted to binge. Learn other ways to create inner peace and comfort.
