How often do you go on these binges?! If its every week/every day it could be helpful to try OA...or maybe go speak to a psychologist if youre not constantly over-eating? It could be related to some other deep rooted emotional/mental triggers. If it is a super frequent thing, it definitely will help to talk about it/get help/gain techniques to avoid it.
Now for my "story" and my "remedy" for those crazy binge days....
For a good part of last year I would be really strict with my diet (I was under a lot of stress and it was all I could control) then every week I'd end up on some crazy binge where I would eat one thing to "kill the cravings" then say "F*ck it! Ive already cheated...I can restart again tomorrow. FREE DAY!" and binge on pints of Ice Cream, Chocolate, Pizza (more towards the beginning of Paleo), and other things, Paleo and CW, because they tasted SO GOOD and they made me feel better..temporarily. However, in the end I would just beat myself up over it. By October/November I showed some pre-eating disorder signs (emotional, mood swings, super strict diet compliance followed by binges, avoiding social settings, obsessing over working out, etc.) While I never developed an eating disorder (thankfully) I found that relaxing more, managing my stress(work, classes, etc.), and accepting things I cannot control (aspects of work, class, etc. that caused the stress) and enjoying Paleo foods I have been able to push past the whole compliance then binge thing.
I posted on a another question (I cant find it right now) about how I deal with my "binges." Thankfully after much experimenting and tweaking, I think I have found "My Paleo Diet" and the urge to binge has subsided...BUT I make sure there is no CW temptation in my house if I do fall off track and binge a bit...this happens right before I start my period or if I'm up late studying....or had a night out :P
Prepare yourself for a "successful" binge. Make sure there are NO C.W. foods to be found in your house, and keep a stash of Paleo acceptable snacks at work. Keep lots of bacon, dried fruit, nuts, Greek Yogurt (if you eat dairy)...dark chocolate...ANYTHING DELICIOUSLY PALEO. Seriously, if youre going to end up binging, as we all do from time to time, if there are NO C.W. foods in the house then youre already doing A LOT less damage than if there were cookies, bread, or what have you.How guilty could you feel for eating dried fruit and nuts?! However, I'm definitely not saying not to get help if binging is occurring on a super frequent basis.
I totally feel you on the whole stress-induced, lack of sleep, and junk food everywhere temptation to binge. I work with a Auburns football team (lots of free food for staff members come training camps/game days), I'm a full time student, and I have friends who EAT LIKE SHIT and are always shoving ice cream(my favorite thing ever), candy, pasta, and everything and anything else they can down their throats. I had to learn how to look at all of this, not from a point of deprivation, but motivation. I see breads and pastas now and all I can think of is my friend who is CONSTANTLY doing to doo because all she eats is candy, bread, pasta, and other terrible foods that "taste good"...I SWEAR she has G.I. issues from it, she is always on the toilet (Im talking poops like 5 times a day). You need to tell yourself that the temptation is temporary, but your health is permanent. How many more pieces of bread will push your body to the point of diabetes? Is it worth the risk? I do not want to find out. I'll have a sweet potato or nuts if I'm craving carbs! This is where the "preparation for a successful binge" comes in. Find the things that will satisfy your craving and fill you up. Sweet Potatoes are like crack to me. Not to mention, one sweet potato with some meat and I'm all food-babied up and ready to sleep ;]
Learn to breathe. Stress is not worth your energy...use that energy to experiment in the kitchen and make a kick ass meal or go on a long walk. Allow yourself a little time to breathe and do something for you everyday and try to tackle your stresses one piece at a time. Chances are, you are making a mountain out of a molehill. Prioritize. Focus on one thing at a time and slowly you will be able to control the stress. Controlling my stress was the biggest factor in my recent success...I am now sleeping more, eating better, and everything has started to line up.
