What makes you go on a food binge? Have you asked yourself this? If you did, what did you come up with?
Do you go on an food binge because the weight-loss method you are using is too restrictive and too depriving? Do you binge after you have a diet cheat and because you can’t help thinking I got it wrong so what’s the sense of me being careful anymore? Perhaps you binge eat for neither of these reasons.
Maybe you get in really bad moods and your out-of-control eating is your way of staving off a bad mood. You bury yourself in eating and escape the bad mood that way, and the guilt you suffer afterwards from eating too much food isn’t anywhere near as serious as the bad mood that kicks off your binge eating. There is still another possibility. You could binge as a way of attributing your bad mood to the binge itself rather to the things that are truly causing you to be in a bad mood.
As you can see, there are lots of possible reasons for someone to binge eat. What causes you to binge eat?
