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.

Binge eating.: Encourage you to try a 12 step program called over eater's anonymous. It is free, confidential, informative, supportive, ; can be effective. You will learn about your dysfunctional relationship w food as well as finding out about healthier coping behaviors. Would see your physician to determine if there are any underlying medical conditions. Working w an addiction medicine specialist can help.

FMany helps: Seek new activities and keep busy. When getting hungry, get up, get out and get busy! drink a glass of water or non-caloric beverage. Get excess foods out of the house and keep only healthy snacks available that are low in calories and high in volume. Learn relaxation techniques, stress relieving activities, seek counselling, get an accountability partner and eat at the table only. U can do!

Binging/purging: Even with professional help, it is a slow process of recovery. A trained professional can help you explore the dynamics behind the behaviors, instead of just treating the symptoms.
