In the beginning of my depression two years ago i ended up losing 30 pounds even tho i was already skinny before. It wasnt on purpose, i just didn't realize until people began asknig me if i had an ED. Now that i have realized and tried to gain weight back i can not stop eating! Everyday i come home from school and eat for 2-3 hours straight (today i ate from 3 - 5) For the whole time i eat whatever is in sight as fast as i can. I make a mess and it disgusts me that i am such a slob and can not control myself. I only do this when im alone. But anyways, how can you stop binge eating? What thoughts go through your head to stop you before it gets too late? Ive been eating three healthy meals a day with a snack but i still find time to binge until i cant walk! Ugh and this worsens my depression, knowing that i have screwed my life up so bad that i cant even control myself anymore! FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD! grrr i hate it! I guess i wouldnt hate it so much if fat would go to my legs and arms but it just goes straight to my stomach so i have a gut with twig arms and legs - ugh it sucks...Any advice on how to stop binging?

You should always have people around you, dont let yourself be alone cuz that is when you binge.. I cant help much with the thoughts because I am also a binger... I end up purgeing though..

You know if you cant afford a dietitian or a nutritionist.. You could just execrice and if you keep it up you will eventually have a flat tummy and feel a lot better about yourself

hopelessxox7 I feel your pain. I am too fighting the battle of the binge. I am also looking for advice and support. I have a love hate relationship with food. I love food but as soon as I eat I feel bad, guilty, ugly, and etc... I want to eat like a normal person. Food should not be such and obsession. I want to eat to live not live to eat....Please I hope someone will help us to help ourselves.

madelineRose, you're right,

why the hell is food so much of a big issue, we should just see it as fuel for a body to survive!

i hope one day i truley see it as that

My parents know about my eating disorder and no it doesnt bring me back to reality. I am going to some center this Monday for help but i doubt it will work. i literally ate everything in my house today (yeah the day my mom went grocery shopping, grrr) so yeah having my parents know about my ED has made it even worse for me, they arent the best support even tho they are trying they are making it worse.

And the exercise advice - not a good idea. I used to over-exercise which is bad for your health too.

Damnit if im doing so many things bad for my health, how come i havent been lucky enough to die yet?!

i know exactly how u feel i was the same way after i stopped being anorexic. i wish i had some advice for u but the only thing that stopped me from binging and purging was to stop eating all together.

Ahhh.... you guys are all probably really skinny!! I dont eat or drink anything all day until like 5:30 and then i get home and BINGE, i cant stand throwing up, but sometimes i dont really have a choice. The most i ever go without eating or drinking is 4 days, i loose weight but then i faint or pass out, go to the dr and like a day after i have a "hunger attack" and binge again. i need help, i sort of want to be anorexic, but i really want to stop binging. HELP!!! If anyone has any tips or suggestions, or just wants to talk and can be supportive, please email me at [email protected] Thanx, and good luck!!!

I know it is a hard thing to talk to your doctor about but you need to find an interest that will change your concentration into something different, try writting down the reasons why not to eat and then when you feel you have to read it and keep typing it over and over and turn it into a challange such as the first time you do it you types it twenty times the next time type it twenty one times and so fourth so in the end it will eventually not be about the food it will be about beating your score and you will forget about the food and concentrate on teh challange.

hey hopelessxox
I understand exactly how you feel.Whenever you want to binge you can't stop yourself it's like you have no control no matter how hard you try you know your gonna give in. My experience with an eating disorder has taught me that you go through phases of starvation than you binge and purge for months without being able to stop. Well what I do when I get the urge to binge is take a walk outside or just get away from food for as long as I can. Or just talk to someone anyoine. Drink tea or play a game Make sure it has nothing to do with food. You could also chew gum, or take a shower. I know these things seem easy to do but when you get the urge to binge they become so hard. Just think of it has trying to quit smoking. Also being bulimic just doesn''t go away so if you do binge don't be to hard on yourself just move on and keep trying. Next time you might binge for 1 hour instead of 2 or you might be able to stop yourslef for a few more minutes before u start to binge. Anyway I know exactly how you feel and it's the hardest thing to control yourself when you wanna binge. Don't give up and remember your not alone.

i was anorexic for two years and then became bulimic for about 6 months or so, i am just getting over that and i have become anorexic again i lost 5lbs the first week i stopped binging and purging but i did because it finally got to the point where i gained so much weight that i was so upset i just made myself stop. i guess you just have to want it bad enough and have that kind of control over urself. i had gained over 40lbs after i stopped being anorexic and started being bulimic. i am 5'6" and i went from under 80lbs to 120lbs. i now weigh 103 and hope that i can start to control my ed so that i stay about this weight.

GO FOR HELP NOW!...i just started gonig to an ED treatment. I go there 3 days a week from 3:30-8:30. Its an hour away but its worth the drive. We have group counseling and private counseling and a dietitcian and eat dinner there. They help you sooooooooo much! I havent had a full on binge since i started. Yes i have still overate and lost a bit of control - but i still felt liek i had some control to stop! =] ...
what helps me the most is ensure - its a nutritional supplement, this stops my binging probably bc now im not as malnutritioned as i was before. -i am recoomended to have 3 a day to gain a few pounds back but if you were trying not to gain too much weight 1 a day would be fine.

Anyway i just started zoloft and am feeling a lot better - this is def helping with my ED since my depression caused my ED.

Altogether im donig a lot better and life is starting to turn around. My advice is to find a treatment center ASAP!
