You will need to work on the psychology bethind whats driving you to eat. However, there are one or two quick tricks to get you started.<br />
First, dont stop eating. Change what you eat. Simply stop eating the junk you do now and switch to fresh fruit only. Fresh or froxen vegetables are also allowed, but nothing else. <br />
Its likely that a lot of what you are carrying is water, which the fruit will allow you to lose fairly fast and the encouragement that gives you will spur you on a little. Warning!.. The first 2 or 3 days your colon wont know what hit it. Dont get too far from a bathroom. But it settles down.

Seeing a therapist or psychologist is definitely helpful, and worthwhile. Other than that though - it's really important to find out/identify what your "triggers" are (things that lead you to binge eat) Triggers related to binging can usually be divided into 3 different categories.. <br />
1) triggers associated w/ food & eating: <br />
Example: buffets, social events involving food like going out to eat (anxiety of the social situation itself may trigger a binge episode), breaking ''rules" one create in their mind regarding food (ex: food rituals) <br />
<br />
2) triggers associated w/ weight & body shape<br />
Example: Weighing - sometimes can even a 1 lb gain can lead one to binge b/c they feel like they've worked hard to follow a meal plan & it wasn't worth it, shopping for clothing can be triggering especially if you might try on your normal size & it doesn't fit, and also looking in the mirror for a long time. <br />
<br />
3) triggers associated w/ negative emotions & moods<br />
Examples: Commonly binges occur due to *Anger *Tiredness *Loneliness *Boredom *Anxiety * Depression<br />
<br />
I have a friend who said the majority of her binges she realized are due to anxiety. Try becoming aware of & then making a list of the things that trigger your binging episodes. It's crucial to become aware in the moment & to then tell yourself for example: "I am feeling anxious thinking about my presentation later.. physically I am not hungry" & then you might follow that awareness with doing something to help relieve the anxiety like deep breathing, meditation, exercise, music, diary, etc. <br />
<br />
Trying to avoid your personal triggers is really important. Try keeping a food journal. Every time you have a binging episode record it. The date, what you ate, the situation, what emotion(s) you were experiencing, and then think of something that would help to prevent the same thing from happening in the future again & record it. <br />
<br />
Self help books are useful, as is the internet for information. Learn as much as you can about binge eating disorder, and even speaking to a doctor & possibly anti-depressants or other medications can be a little helpful. Also, feel free to message me if you want to. I'm studying, and have learned a lot about eating disorders (as well as battling one myself) Would love to help you overcome this.

You have one advantage you want to stop that's a big help. You have to be tough on yourself but of course you can do it. Determination is the key, if you have it anything is possible its only miracles that take longer. That's what we say in our house.

Pick up a sport that you'd enjoy. Also, put post-it notes on the fridge and wherever you have food saying "are we binge-eating again?" Just a precaution against yourself relapsing.

When you find the answer, let me know. I think it's best to try and stay busy. Being too stationary is usually what leads me to the fridge.
