First of all: Put weight loss on the back track. When you don't stop dieting, the binge cycle will just carry on.

When you feel the urge to binge, do not react, do not resist , do not respond to it . Just ignore it like a thought going in one ear and out the other . Accept the urge to binge , it's okay . Get distracted or Get absorbed in a task .

Talk to your parents and if it is serious enough then you should talk to someone more professional. Have you checked the self help guides for eating disorders?

With a medical condition, the best way to treat it is with a medical solution. It is best to consult with a doctor who can give specific advise for your situation and your body.

The best way to stop binge eating, personally, it's by always eating healthy food and doing a lot of exercice. Also, if you crave for something salty like chips, eat some peanuts instead. And if you want ice cream, why don't you try homemade frozen yogourt? If these tips doesn't work, try distracting yourself. Good luck! :) Kimly

The most important thing is not to guilt them into stopping. Find out what makes them eat, whether that's insecurity or an inability of dealing with their problems in a constructive way. Help them develop constructive ways instead of destructive. Most people who binge eat know that what they are doing is not helping them, they just don't know what else to do.

What I find helpful is to get a medium or small plate or bowl fill it with items that I want to eat put all other food away and out of sight then go as far away as you can in that moment and eat there then when finished immediately start doing something to distract you or go around others

Distraction. Binge eating can be used as comfort or out of boredom. Watch, read, do something that makes you happy or entertained.

One of the best ways to stop binge eating is to start by eating 6 small meals daily (every two hours). These small meals will be equilivent to 6 small healthy snacks containing necessary food groups in order to meet necessary nutritional requirements.
