Eat one third of your stomach full only. Have campaigning to eat meals with. Give money to charity or help those who are less fortunate. I hope this helped. If this hasn't worked and still feeling guilty after eating I recommend that you see a therapist. Usually, we develop these feelings early on in life when we are children under 7 and our personality is still developing. If we have for whatever reason a programme in our mind saying that you do not deserve then you will spend the rest of your life thinking that you don't deserve. The job of the therapist here is to dig down in your personality and find the reason behind this feeling and work with you to fix it. Good luck

I suffered from anorexia since I was a teenager,I had reached 3% of fat lost all my muscles, I couldn't move as a normal person, I couldn't control my feelings I was really exhausted and sad, never been more miserable in my entire life. Then I broke. I ate a lot one day and then the next and I felt really guilty but this failure of my "perfect plan" made me vulnerable and I thought ok I fucked everything up so whatever I'll eat again and after that I will start diet. Fortunately my organism didn't trust me so I couldn't stop eating, I was addicted to overeating I just couldn't stop my body had taken it's revenge for all those years of starvation. When I realised it's fine not being perfect and maybe enjoying food is much better than hating your self and trying to control obsessively your daily intake. I was much happier, still felt guilty and worried but in the end the feeling of satisfaction was stronger. im not going to lie I still have the voices in my head but I'm trying to ignore them. I realised people I love and care about wouldn't want to see me suffering and I should try for them. Only when I am healthy I can really be by their side. Don't lose yourself for something that doesn't matter at all in the end like low weight. Now, Everytime I bully myself for eating a lot I see one old picture of mine in order to remind myself that I would never want to be that miserable human being again ,this life is not worth living, it's a torture
