OP, I'm worried you may have a budding eating disorder. If this is truly the first time you've binged, there's no need to see a professional just yet. If you binge again or even feel like you want to, go see a qualified therapist right away!... (more)

Next time grab 3 or 4 sandwiches and just eat the stuff in the middle. As for what to do after a grain binge, just try to not repeat. Other than that, keep eating clean.
