I fail at this like once a week or every 2 weeks and it sucks. I am good for a while and then fall into temptation and overindulge. I hate it. What do you do to avoid this?

Prepare small snacks in between meals for you. There are lots of nut snacks out there that you can eat. If you are craving for a certain food, go for it but you have to limit a small portion. once or twice a week is not bad as long as in small portions and you still have to be active in working out. I hope this helps :)

Yeah binging is a struggle!! I would say just don't deprive yourself of what you crave. Have a cheat day at least once every two weeks. What I do is cheat once every 3 weeks or so. And I count calories! If I am going to cheat I make sure the rest of the week I was eating right. I think this works!! I've been eating good and working out but last weekend I drank alcohol and had burger King (lol my first time trying a double whopper) but when I checked the scale, I actually lost 3 pounds, I...

I am prone to this when I have PMS or very emotional.

If you want to binge do a workout first. The harder the workout the more you can eat. It's cheating but keeps you kind of level.

I just enjoy it then get back on track and try to think of how much worse things could be. I think of it like I exercise and eat healthy so I can eat donuts and not look like I eat donuts.

Besides that, ppl recommend smaller treats during the week, so you're not completely depriving yourself. I find it really difficult to control myself once I eat a little junk, though.

There really isn't some magical cure for this. You have to teach yourself to resist. Think about your goals: what is more satisfying, seeing that you achieved your goals or eating that yummy chocolate bar? Be strong as you will "fall off the wagon" and there will be that day or that week that you are disappointed in yourself. But get back up and resume with your training and your journey. Forgive yourself and learn form your mistakes.  Good luck!!

Eat enough. And allow yourself to have some 'bad stuff' every once a while.

I personally like chocolate. So I still eat it almost everyday. I just control my portions. This way I still feel like I can eat whatever I like. But I control my energy intake. Which is always most important.
