No surprise with me, but after a short while of staying pretty stable with a healthy eating pattern - the binging started again.
Like many others here, I'm completely unaware of (and unable to pinpoint) what exactly causes me to fall off the wagon.
I think CBT would be good for this sort of problem (at least for me) but I haven't been able to access it.
I accidentally came across a concept called 'Urge Surfing' or 'Surfing the Urge' that was introduced by a psychologist named Alan Marlatt.
Basically, instead of calling the urge 'bad' or fighting to ignore it or get past it etc... you instead accept it - "Yep, I'm really craving that chocolate right now, I reaally want it" and then you just ride with the craving until it dissipates.
So far I'm finding it really helpful and have found that it takes away that "I am bad" feeling from the binge cravings.
I'm hoping this is how I learn to overcome my binge eating problems and hope others can find some help or use in this too.
I'm going to link a couple of videos below.
I hope it helps
