I wish I could stop binge eating

I eat one meal a day. Dinner. But after dinner I just eat and eat. I’ve lost 30 pounds and don’t want to gain it back bc I’m prettier than I was.

Congratulations Loke.!!

I’m in the same boat, stopping binge eating is like such a difficult mission it’s crazy

but I have not given up on it just yet

I have given up on my weight now. I dropped a lot and then put some back on. I seem to wear it well, but I honestly have no patience for exercise and I eat within what they say you should.

I would love to be 59 kilos again, but that’s not going to happen (Thanks Olanzapine!)

@anon90843118 you’re on abilify right? I read that abilify can cause problems with compulsive behaviour, and that could include problems with binge eating. So quitting binge eating on abilify would be extra hard. What do you think? Have you considered a med switch?

Idk why exactly but I have this fear that going on another ap is going to make things generally worse somehow.
Yes I do feel more compulsion than normal with food. Especially the worst kinds in particular :roll_eyes:
But due to my fear I feel its worth staying on it

Thanks for the suggestion

Abilify made me binge eat to the point of vomiting. I had to get off of it. It didn’t really help a lot with other things.

Maybe in my subconscious I want to eat my 2000 calories all at once. Idk

Maybe try to space it out and have more, but smaller meals so you don’t get hungry often enough to binge eat?

On days where I only have one main meal, I tend to snack afterwards. It’s because the meal increases my bloodsugar, and then it drops afterwards, making me hungry again

Good idea. I do find that if I eat 3 small meals a day that I don’t binge as much. Thanks :pray:. It’s 1430 (230 pm) here and I haven’t eaten yet.

This isn’t a diet plan. It’s an eating disorder.

It might be. I don’t not eat out of fear of gaining weight though. It’s just a habit.

Doesn’t matter. Eating disorders aren’t about just losing weight. Plenty of people with eating disorders are overweight, and their disorder goes unrecognized.

Wow. I didn’t know that. I never thought of it that way.

I’m the heaviest I have ever been, and it is showing. I could lose 25 lbs. and still be fifty pounds overweight.

@ninjastar. I ate breakfast this morning and it’s lunchtime now. About to eat something small. I notice if I eat small meals during the day I don’t binge as much at night.

My problem is that while I don’t eat large meals at once, I just don’t get that sensation of being full for very long, so shortly after eating I feel like eating again. I can eat lunch and half and hour later I’ll think to myself “I could really go for some bread”, although I try to limit myself to things that won’t spike my bloodsugar.
