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)

If you aren't already supplementing Magnesium, try 400-600 mg before bed. See if you stop binging (give it at least 6 weeks.) If not, it's likely psychological/emotional attachment.

She's an idiot. You sleep every night without waking up to eat, right? As long as you eat enough, it doesn't matter if it's in one big meal or 30 small ones, or something in between.

I have done that too, and then also thought "I wish I hadn't wasted all the calorie intake to pinpoint the craving"..... but I really think it's psychological. Did you have Nutrigrain bars as a snack or reward when you were little? <3
