I'm wondering if you should also be looking at the WHY? do you binge --- then weight the benefits and the pitfalls between binging and eating healthfully.
I have been doing this with my poor eating choices..............example:
WHY do I want to eat ice cream?
BENEFITS: Because I love the coolness and creaminess. It feels good and tastes good in my mouth - and even as I'm swallowing. Its gives me a NOW satisfaction.
PITFALLS: It makes me feel bloated. It makes me feel nauseous. It interferes with my weight loss efforts. It goes against my desire to keep processed sugar out of my system.
WHY do I NOT want to eat ice cream?
BENEFITS: To avoid the bloat and nauseous feelings. To loss weight. To avoid putting processed sugars in my system.
PITFALLS: I miss out on the NOW satisfaction and I feel sorta cheated out of eating "treats".
So............ looking at it from both points of view -- its pretty obvious why I should choose NOT to eat ice cream. The benefits of NOT eating ice cream allow me to avoid the pitfalls of eating ice cream. Its a win win thing.
(this makes total sense in my feeble brain)
That being said.......... I totally understand that binging is not a matter of just saying "no I'm not going to do that" Its more than a choice --- but I would think examining the behavior from all sides would help to better understand it and control the urge - or avoid the urge all together.
I can make the same argument with RUM. (which by the way I am now 10 days without drinking!) I have some in the cupboard - but I choose the benefits of not having it - over the benefits of having it............. Sorry if this all sounds really stupid. It started out sounding really good in my head!
