For example, I often get the urge to eat fast food when I have long gaming sessions. I always feel like I'm "missing something" when I don't eat and game.

      I'm in the proccess of losing weight and for me, its when everyone goes to bed, and I get an hour to relax at 830-930PM. I always want a snack while watching TV, goldfish, cheezits, a cookie, something. It feels like I'm torturing myself not eating anything but I know I can't

        Evening and midnight snacking is the worst because you can't occupy your mind with something else. The only fix is to endure the suffering.

    The more disciplined my hobbies the less I binge. If I get offline and don't watch any television I almost never go off diet. The weeks where I'm reading a lot I tend to lose weight. I think addictive behavior simply hits the same parts of the brain. The more you feed any addictive behavior the worse you get in general.

      This. It's a compounding system that gets input from all aspects of your life. If you become more lax in one aspect, chances are you're going to lose ground in others too.

    Just emotional eating. My binging is directly correlated to depression and stress. I lost 130lbs and maintained it for years until I had a break up, lost my job, and got evicted all within 4 months which triggered an extended period of binge eating. Working my way back down now but it sucks knowing that the trigger is there though I feel more confident now that I'd be able to handle it better now.

      Can you describe how this works? I'm curious as someone who binges, but never with an emotional motivation.

        It's just a coping mechanism, food brings you comfort and your brain releases endorphins when you eat so it's just a quick fix and then you feel like shit again later on and do it all over again. I'm sure there's some deep psychological reasons for it, all I know is it makes you feel good for a little while. I didn't really have any coping mechanisms at the time, my GF was my only friend so when she was gone I just kind of lost my way and turned to food. Now I actually have hobbies and those hobbies are more outside focused so I'm more confident in not ending up in this situation in the future.

    I really cant say exactly what triggers me to have one, its like a constant urge to stuff my face. I'd drive out of my way to grab KFC and muck 10 tenders and a couple snack wraps on the drive home, or mcdons for a couple mcchickens before work

    I look forward to when my fiance is going to see friends out of town for a night or 2 because i could make some ridiculous amount of food to eat. It doesnt even have to be good, just edible. Once i ate like 4 packs of ramen which i mixed with smoked mussels cause i thought it would be a good combo, it wasnt, and i ate the whole thing anyway

    Fuck man, typing that out felt kinda good. Maybe i should go see a therapist lol

    Making good steps but damn, my relationship with food is basically unrepairable. Looking forward to either being a fat fuck my entire life or constantly fighting the inner fatty. Hopefully i can do the latter

      You really do have a problem, fren. Not to get armchair psychologist, but at least for me there was a deeper underlying cause for wanting to binge-eat and then cope by being le epic bloatlord. Try to do some introspection and see what that reason is for you.

        For sure there is a reason i just dunno what the fuck it is lol

        I just love to eat. Making progress though. And the good thing is that despite my weight and my eating habits I am not in as bad of shape as youd think because of my activity level. Normal bo and resting heart rate etc

      Man I do this too where the second my GF leaves the house I tend to go stuff my face with any sweets or snacks. I think I just like being alone and feel really relieved by it, and it’s associated in my brain with grabbing a snack ever since I was a kid and would take stuff up to my room to eat while shitposting in high school. I’ve tried to curb it recently by making a cup of tea or doing chores to distract myself when I become alone in the house, but it’s hard.

    I know realistically that it's because her bad habits are contagious but I feel like I could weigh myself, have a 20 minute phone conversation with my sister, and then step on the scale again to discover that I'd put on a half a pound.
    She refuses to consider losing weight, and tells me that I have an eating disorder when I bring this shit up. At this point I've just accepted that I'll have to have her chopped up and cremated by several mortuaries in a handful of decades.

      Yeah my overweight family’s habits really have an impact on me as well when I visit. Part of it is unconscious, and part of me wants to stick to my healthy habits but I end up knowingly curbing them because I feel like a pompous asshole being like “Oh I can watch a movie with you guys but give me 30 minutes first, let me get my steps in.” I hope your sister realizes just how poor quality of life is and considers losing weight soon.

        She's a zoomer and was starting to lose weight and work out a year or so ago.
        Unfortunately she also had a slightly shitty boyfriend at the time- cheated on her and pretended she wasn't his gf to his pals, that kind of garbage- and since he encouraged her fitness and weight loss she's concocted this whole fucking narrative in her mind about how her losing weight while dating him was some form of "abuse" and was an "eating disorder".
        She's so clever and fun in other ways, but there's this huge fucking mental wall built up now.

    I get the urge to binge when I feel like shit. It’s 100% a coping mechanism. Lately I’ve been doing better and actually mostly eating healthy and cutting, but around 5 days into my cut (makes no difference if it’s a small deficit or a big one) I wake up in a horrible mood and I’m hangry and irritable and just all pissy and I cave.

    I unironcially started fasting today. I’m going to do rolling 48s until I can drop a shirt size, resume the slow cut for a few months where if I hit goal weight I can draw a cheat meal from a raffle if I’m still having cravings, then do another few weeks of rolling 48s to get closer to 200lbs asap.

    I used to eat a small meal at around 10-11pm every day and cutting that was the hardest part

    also I used to buy either holiday cookies or chocolate chip bakery cookies from HEB and gorge on 4-5 of them at 11pm as well

    god I miss those

    You ever been bored? Not knowing what to do?

    Imagine every time you felt that, you got "hungry". I just get depressed and hungry when I'm not busy now, you know how people spend time trying not to kys by being active? I do that... Except I've been pseduoneeting for soon to be 2 months (online college), so I have been having to fight my inner fatass. I was 400 pounds before I hit 14, and they let me eat till I vomitted. I love food, I will always love food, once I get down to my uGW, I'll be fine. I know how to fit it into my days now, and if I ever "need" to binge, I simply just OMAD. My calorie deficit is pretty cyclical, typically a maintence followed by 2k deficit, if i happen to binge. I just know my way around the calorie so much that I can counter act my fattness.

    The one true thing that fucked me, well 2 things. 1st, I removed temptation, I never moderated it. So on Thanksgiving when they bought 5 pies (my family is obese), guess who ate 2 despite not even fucking liking pie. 2. When you lose the weight, you want to binge eat for roughly 1/3 the time you dieted (this is a natural response). I couldn't control it, and I gained a sweet tooth... I never craved sweets ever, now it's the only thing I binge.

    My 3 tips are
    A multivitamin, you won't having any cravings anymore, my example is that I binge eat yes, but I don't "want" anything, it's emotionally attached, I binge on my diet foods, my plain greek yogurt, my chicken breast. But it's not 5k calories of 1 pizza, you know?

    Look up "anabolic cooking", fuck greg, fuck remington james, but their recipes do enough

    Backload carbs (if you are cutting), when I get an "insulin spike" (or just eat useless carbs) I just go crazy, I can't stop when I start eating, so lessen you're meal frequency. ALTERNATIVELY, THIS IS A SHIT IDEA FOR REAL BINGERS, YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY BE EATING A HEARTY BREAKFAST IF YOU REALLY HAVE BED. I was always just a big eater, I would have never really called it "binging"
