Binge Eating : Forgive yourself. Don't purge or restrict thereafter. Your metabolism is like a fire. Fuel it regularly to maximize it: eat palm sized portion of protein and complex carb every 2-3 hr. Sprinkle 4 fruits & 4-5 veggie portions across the day. Eating disorders lead to depression, loss of freedom in life, isolation, & shame. It is an addiction. Try oa groups (find online) seek help! you can get well.

Be understanding: People often feel guilt and shame after bingeing, which can lead to bingeing again as a way of coping or distracting with those emotions. Be curious, not critical. Identify the situational and emotional triggers to the binge. Were you hungry, angry, tired, sad, worried, anxious, etc? Figure out what is eating "at" you instead of focusing on what you ate.
