Hey my names koda and I'm 18. I have difficulties with my eating and have been diagnosed with an eating disorder. I also have depression and anxiety disorder.

I just was wondering if anyone had any advice for how I can better handle my eating and preent binges.
I just ate around 700 calories in one sitting, not because I was hungry. simple because I was bored and upset. It needs to stop. I can'texercise that much away every day.

Please help.

Im a former bulimic. Been struggling with binge eating til the day i said STOP. The only thing thats working for me is not starving myself. When i starve myself I end up binging quite compulsively! Try to stick on a balanced diet of 1500 kcals if ur trying to lose weight or 1800/2000 if ur maintaining ur weight. I also noticed i tend to binge when i cut carbs, they keep me full and happier :) for carbs i mean:potatoes, pasta, oats and rice, of course in the right amount!if U end up binging theres no problem, dont try...

1st, I hope you're seeing a therapist and also, preferably, a dietician. Folks will give you the best advice they can, but most people don't really know how to deal with both fitness and emotional health. As a former 360lb man & and still struggling binge eater, I can tell you that the advice of someone who isn't trained or hasn't dealt with this stuff personally has as much potential to do damage as good.

Reminder, weight gain and loss are something that occur over time. One 2000 calorie meal a week doesn't kill my diet, as long as I take it in context with all the rest of my eating and fitness habits and adjust them to account for the extra intake. You don't need to burn those calories off today. Learning peace, patience, and an ability to give yourself grace should reduce the anxiety, and, in turn, the desire to binge.

Let those specialists and your support network help you.

Oranges are good because they take ages to peel so keeps you busy.  Strong flavoured tea like chai help.  I also find crafts help.  Pinflair, decoupage, sewing, painting by numbers, dry felting and many others.  They keep you busy while still being able to watch tv or hold a conversation.  It helps keep you busy, keeps your mind focused on other things.  You might need to play about and find the hobbys that suit you.  

You can always pm me if you want to talk I do know what it's like

Hi,
Try Yoga. It helps with your sleeping disorder and reduces anxiety. I am talking from my experience. It will gradually reduce your food intake too. All the best.

Bala

Set a routine. On Sundays pack you meals in Tupperware. Portion control breakfast lunch and dinner small snacks between meals. And workout when you can I do an hour workout every night
