10 strategies for overcoming binge eating

  • Stress Management. One of the most important aspects of controlling binge eating is to find alternate ways to handle stress and other overwhelming feelings without using food. These may include exercising, meditating, using sensory relaxation strategies, and practicing yoga & breathing exercises.
  • Eat three healthy meals a day. Eating 3 meals are important . Stick to scheduled mealtimes, as skipping meals often leads to binge eating . Eating breakfast jump starts your metabolism in the morning. Follow breakfast with a balanced lunch and dinner. 
  • Exercise. Not only will exercise help you lose weight in a healthy way, but it also lifts mood, improves overall health, and reduces stress. The natural mood-boosting effects of exercise can help put a stop to emotional eating.
  • Fight boredom.  Join a hobby class, Take a walk, call a friend, read  a book  or  write.
  • Join Laughter Club : Try something funny to keep yourself light. Embracing positivity and laughter helps.
  • Get enough sleep. Sleep at least for 7-8 hours , If you're tired, you may want to keep eating in order to boost your energy. Take a small nap or go to bed earlier instead.
  • Avoid temptation. Eat healthy food and avoid eating too much sweets, bakery products and sugary dishes
  • Stop dieting. Dieting can trigger food cravings and the urge to overeat. Instead of dieting, focus on eating in moderation. Eat nutritious foods that you enjoy and eat only until you feel content. 
  • Listen to your body.  Let the craving time to pass. Body knows and actually tell us what it wants. Do't eat if your are not hungry.
  • Talk to friends. Talking with family and friends help, join a support group, and if possible consult a therapist.
