I IF sort of randomly, generally whenever it feels natural. I often skip breakfast or postpone it til 10am or so. When I sleep in a bit (7:30am) and am really busy, I can have 2 cups of coffee with milk early and then go until 5pm, no problem. I guess I am fat adapted even though some days IF is not happening for me. I don't know how else it could be so easy some days.

I feel like that's enough to work on at once. When I reach something closer to a healthy weight, I may expand my focus to other details.
You really need to figure out what will make it possible to get a grip on your bingeing. The answer may not be what you put in your stomach. It may be what you put in your head. The right solution is the one that works for you, not the one that works for anyone else.
