Strategies For Overcoming Binge Eating:
One of the most significant factors of controlling binge eating is to discover ways of dealing with stress and other overpowering feelings without resorting to food. This may include meditating, exercising, utilizing sensory-relaxation techniques, and performing simple breathing-exercises. Eat three meals a day including healthy snacks. Breakfast is the perfect way to get your metabolism going in the morning. Afterwards, have a nutritional lunch and dinner, with healthy-snacks in between. Stay with a schedule for mealtimes, and avoid skipping meals that can lead to binge eating as the day progresses. If you have junk food lying around your home, get rid of the temptation by clearing out your cabinets, refrigerator, and anywhere else you keep your pet binge foods.
