Find Out Why You Binge

Binge: When you overeat to an extreme amount, eating until your stomach hurts and is bloated.

We've all binged before. Binging repeatedly can be harmful to your health, and most of all, your weight! Want to stop binging? This can help.

After your next binge, (and don't binge just so you can do this activity and have an excuse to binge) grab your ana notebook and a pen. You can use a voice recorder too, but make sure nobody can hear you as you're talking.

Make a bulleted list of all the emotions you're feeling. (Ex: Guilt, shame, ect.) Make a list of everything you were feeling before your binge. Try to see why you overate: were you bored? Were you sad?
Write down all your thoughts and emotions from after binging, so you can look back at them the next time you want to binge. Once you remind yourself how you'll feel afterwards, you might not want to binge.

Try to stay away from food when you're feeling an emotion that could trigger your binging.

Stay strong!
