I know bingeing. It kept me fat for 25 years. In my case it wasn't really about the food. I mean I did like the stuff I was chowing down on, but the food was a tool, a weapon I was using against myself. I think most bingeing behavior is way more complicated than the composition of what you're putting in your mouth. So don't think of yourself as weak. You're more likely battling some monster you don't quite understand yet. That doesn't mean you can't win - eventually.

Then if you make 2, 4, 6, 50 "bad" choices in a row, the very next bite can be something different, or not, you're making the choices you want. Over time (it was over a year for me) I bet you will see a dramatic difference in your choices.
And I hear you on the hip pain. It was the thought of another 30yrs of that that got me into my head and out of the chip bag.
