In brief: 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.

In brief: Identify triggers

First see a doctor. Also, food cravings may actually be emotional triggers.
Smooth, creamy foods are associated with the need for comfort. Filling foods are connected with loneliness. Crunchy foods are associated with anger. When you identify what's eating "at" you and respond to those needs and emotions, you'll likely stop using food for comfort or distraction.
