anyway, you know we need fat in our diet and that is one of the best fats we could eat also.
This is basically a quiet forum so good luck getting any responses to your direct question. Just thought you would like some support.

This thread is quiet...probably because binging is more about disordered eating and not really dieting.

Right now I am calorie counting and keeping a food log. We will see how it goes.

I sometimes just go out and go off my diet by over-eating. I guess it is just a matter of discipline - to not do that.

Binging is serious and maybe people don't want to talk about it.

After 5 weeks of dieting...I ate a big dinner tonight and ate a chocolate bar for dessert. I call it my cheat day.
WE have to have this every now and then.
food journaling helps to see where your calories are eaten for sure! good for you! I have used the nutrition site Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople You can track your food items have goals etc. I used that for a long time and It helped.
good luck!

I am interested in people who had a habit of mini-binges and how they overcome them.


I am interested in how people deal with hunger.


Am not interested in diet and/or motivational tips as I have that covered.

I didn't start this as a diet thread and I am not interested in recording every aspect of my weight loss journal. I am more interested in mini binges and how people got over this habit.

Having a big dinner isn't a binge. Or even a mini-binge. Please stop trying to turn this into a diet thread because that's not what this thread is about. I think you have your own diet thread where you talk about your weight loss journey.


I just had a few specific questions and would like to bring this thread back on topic. Thanks.

Unhappy Re: Mini-binge and hunger

sorry for high jacking your thread. I noticed that you did not have any responders so thought you might like to have some dialog.

Maybe binging is a non-topic. Anyway, I think I have established myself on this diet and have the food log, and have solidified my goals...so maybe binging or emotional over-eating is not going to be a problem.


Another reason this thread is not getting much response -- maybe because this is the time of year when people don't want to think about dieting. Binging a little is part of the season.


I can understand this but I didn't want to do that this year. I don't drink alcohol but I do like to eat.



Also sorry but I am not in a good mood. I am severely depressed and it is hard to find discipline in this state. I am going to take a break from Psych Central before I really offend someone!


Good luck with your continued success, especially with staying sober.

I went for a week without over-eating. The secret was keeping a very honest food log. I lost a couple pounds.


The first few days I was REALLY HUNGRY but that has kind of gone away.

Sorry I was such a cry baby on this thread. IDK...I think I wasn't binge eating as much as emotional eating...and once I really confronted that as spoiling my diet...I knew it had to go. I am content with losing 2 pounds a week which will happen with life style change.


I now see I was eating emotionally...when anxious...or stressed...or bored...or from habit.


I was extremely hungry...like starving...but now I'm not. I don't know why but it is good.


Well...I am still a bit hungry...but it is manageable.
