    Keeping my hands busy definitely has worked for me in the past! I love these tips, thank you for sharing!

      You’re very welcome! Yeah, that was one of the ones I started doing first because I realized how much of a habit it was for me to plop down in front of a show and just shovel food into my mouth without even enjoying it.

  4. These are all very helpful ways on how to stop binge eating. I used to eat a lot until I realized that I keep missing meals and tend to go hungry. I think it’s important that you plan your meals well and with healthy recipes!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Thanks so much. Yeah, I never realized that eating a little during the day and a ton at night was disordered eating. Once I read that it all kind of clicked and I could see everything for what it was.

  5. I’ve always struggled with binge eating and I think these are great suggestions for me to try. I’ve been focusing on my health and my fitness this year and these are definitely something that I’ll take note of.

  8. My eating habits can be all over the place. Suffering from depression and anxiety, I can fluctuate between binge eating (because I actually feel hungry all day) and not eating at all (because I have no appetite and the thought of food actually makes me feel sick). These tips you’ve outlined here in your post are actually great ways to help get on track, and are methods that I myself use to keep my eating on track.

      So glad they were helpful. I have anxiety issues as well and some depression due to my chronic pain issues. I can understand the huge swing in appetite causing issues. I wish you the best of luck and I’m sending good vibes your way.

  9. Kelsey says:

    So helpful! I am starting eating healthy on Sunday and will definitely revisit this page!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Congrats on the lifestyle change! Just remember you can treat yourself too and it doesn’t mean you fell off the wagon. It’s all about balance 🙂 Best of luck, Kelsey!

  10. Karen says:

    I didn’t know I had a binge eating habit until I read this post. I can go all day without feeling hungry, then wham I want to eat everything in sight. Obviously this is not everyday but it can happen at least once a week.
    Your tips are really helpful. I will try to work out my triggers.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      I’m glad to help. Yeah, I had zero idea until I realized I had disordered eating and then it made a lot of sense why I couldn’t control myself at night. Sending good vibes your way!

  11. Heather says:

    When I have a plan with set times, I do much better. It’s when I go too long without eating that I start eating everything I come in contact with.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Yeah, I started realizing the same with me. My breakfast and lunches are scheduled and pretty light so come night time I want to each te whole refrigerator.

  12. Susan Minich says:

    These are great tips! I love the 80/20 rule. I’m generally good unless I find something I normally can’t have since I’m allergic to wheat, dairy and eggs. Like French fries at a place with a gluten free fryer – yikes – i will totally overdo it 😢

  13. Nidhi says:

    Something that i really needed to read! I will start following these tips rightaway!☺👍

  14. Yes. We have to stop binge eating and eat to live!

  15. Wes says:

    Good advice. I have a lot of problems with anxiety and the ways I distract myself from it. Unfortunately one of those ways was nervous eating especially in social situations.

  16. Annreeba says:

    This will be very helpful for those who loves eating more than anything. Great advice. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Debbie says:

    Great read. Lots of great tips. Some I would love to start incorporating myself!! Thanks! ☺️💕

    its so imp to stop binge eating as it has so many side effects. i am a foodie and a 3am eater. it was quite tough for me to leave this when i enrolled in a gym

    • awaitressnomore says:

      It can be really difficult, but what really helped me was learning balance. I can be a foodie AND not binge on food. It’s jut a difficult place to be in at the time.

  19. Luckily I haven’t dealt with this personally, but I found it so interesting that it’s easy for people to have this problem and not even know it. These are great tips, and I’m sure there are lots of people who will benefit from this post.

      Yeah, I knew some of it was an issue, but I didn’t recognize that a lot of the ways I was eating was disordered until I saw it laid out in front of me.

  20. Tina says:

    That’s quite a comprehensive list. I do binge eat sometimes! But hoping to be better in it.

  21. Kiana says:

    You don’t even know how much I needed this!! I binge eat like no ones business and this is really helpful!

    Thank you so much for writing this… I suffer from binge eating disorder. Sometimes I will go long spans of having a perfectly healthy relationship with food and other times, no matter what I do — I can’t seem to curb the need to binge. It is so important to be able to recognize the triggers! Mine are when I have the house to myself… as a young kid, my dad constantly put my on diets and restricted my eating. So I would wait until he left the house and sneak candy, cookies and ice cream and anything else he wouldn’t let me eat. It took me a long time to realize that I wasn’t “treating” myself to small indulgences when I had the house to myself, but full on binges that made me feel out of control and incredibly guilty afterward. Sorry for the long comment! Haha. Thanks again for this post!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Thanks so much for sharing your issue, Sandy! It’s so great that you at least know what is causing your binging. That can sometimes be the hardest for people to pinpoint. I know that I binge, but I’m not particularly sure of the psychology of why I do it. There could be a myriad of reasons. I’ve made a lot of progress though and you will too! Thanks so much for reading.
