We’ve all done it at some point or another but binge eating can be a serious problem for some people. Whether it’s psychological or simply impulse control, here’s some tips to help you deal with it.
Learn to Cope with Your Emotions
Some people respond to emotional issues by binge eating. Rather than using food as a way to mask your emotions, you may want to take a brisk 20-minute walk outside or even try some yoga. Writing a journal or speaking with a close friend can also help. Eating emotionally can start bad habits that lead to binging and can even bring about other emotions like extreme sadness.
