In brief: What do u mean

Please explain to me me what you mean by binge eating-do you mean the occaisional bag of potato chips?Or do mean thousands of calories at a time.
Restrictive eating compromises any progress with losing any weight. You cannot deiberately restrict foods you enjoy forever..It doesn't work.Not ever. Humans are "programmed by environment" in the first few years after birh. Pleasure of food-not forgotten.
