Do you binge eating

August 27, 2008 3:04am CST
Do you have habit to binge on food before you go to bed? Or when watching TV, between meals or when cooking? What is the most likely food you binge on? I used to binge on cookies when chatting on my computer. Its not healthy. Infact I ended up gaining weight. Thanks God I reduced my amount of binging.

I do eat a lot sometimes. And it's not always, strangely enough I seem to skip days sometimes. Meaning one day I'll be eating almost constantly and the next I won't really have anything to do with food. I guess it depends on my mood. Even when I am hungry it never feels like I'm truly hungry, but I just feel like I need to keep my hands occupied and my mouth chewing.

Hi, I would snack on chips, nuts, ice-cream or chocolates when I'm reading, watching Tv or at the computer. It's a habit - rather hard to break. But it's only when I'm home; when I'm working in the office, even when alone (on weekends or after work), I don't snack - don't seem to have an appetite for food!

I really do binge eat - and I'm not even hungry when I do it! It's like there is a little voice in my head that says "go on have it - stuff them all!!" by them I mean everyone else around me. It's like I am rebelling against them by controlling what I put in my mouth. I sound like an anorexic (but the opposite) I don't even enjoy it - I basically just hoover it down. I know this is extremely unhealthy and I would appreciate some help on how to control it. The meals I eat with my family are healthy and small portions. Does anyone else do this? Thank you Jenny

This is my biggest problem when it comes to losing weight. I can eat really helathy one day and then ruin it the next by binge eating. Im especially bad when im watching a film. It is weird because when I go to the cinema I do not always have something to eat but when Im watching a film at home I nearly always do. I do not binge so much when Im on the computer. I think this is because my hands are constantly moving. I think sometimes if you cut all fattty and sweet foods out of uour diet this leads you to crave them and then you end up bingeing on them. Another thing to do is keep some helathy snacks in the house. Remember to ave things in moderation.

I am absolutely a binge eater. I tend to munch on food while watching tv or reading a book. Its usually popcorn and potato chips but they can really pile on the calories. I also have a tendency to eat when i am feeling low or depressed. At those times something sweet usually helps.
