How To Manage Food Binges

Most dieters believe that if they seriously overeat or have a binge eating episode during (say) a weekend, then their diet plan is ruined. But this is not necessarily true. An occasional food binge does not usually lead to significant weight gain and therefore won't destroy your diet.

Don't Use Overeating As An Excuse to Quit Your Diet

If you spend all day eating, you might gain half a pound. But to do this your total calorie intake for the day needs to be about 4000 calories, which is not an easy amount to eat! But even if you do eat this much food, so what? Is it worth quitting your diet for a measly weight gain of half a pound?

Learn From Your Food Binges

Next time you overeat on your diet, ask yourself what caused it. For example, was it the sight or smell of food? Was it boredom? Were you upset? If you can find the cause of your bingeing problem, you are halfway towards solving it.

How to Stop Bingeing

There are two simple ways to reduce binge-eating. First, don't go hungry. Make sure you eat something at regular intervals throughout the day. Second, don't have your favorite binge foods in the house. I mean, let's face it - no one binges on vegetables or bread. We binge on stuff like ice cream, chips, cake, cookies and pizza. So stop buying so much of these foods. Yes, I know you can get a take-out, but it's not so convenient as raiding the refrigerator.

Binge Eating Disorder

Not everyone who overeats or binges on large amounts of food has an eating disorder. But some do, and they need professional help from an eating disorder specialist. So if you feel your binge eating habits are getting out of control, or if you think you may have an eating problem, please talk to your parents or see your doctor. Disordered eating is much more common than you may think but it requires expert help. See also Binge Eating Disorder
