Well, struggle with disordered eating, ranging from anorexia to binge eating (overeating) and purging, so some bulimic issues.
I haven't purged in a long time
but swing from anorexic behavior to binging or overeating.
The primal lifestyle http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/
has really helped with the binging. As long as I stay away from sugar I do really well, because it's a lot harder to mindlessly eat and overeat on foods that are fat and protein heavy.
Other things I do when feeling bingy:
Eat VERY slowly and mindfully. Even if in between each bite I have to say
something like, "this food is nourishing my body." to keep myself present. I drink a lot of water inbetween bites.
I don't keep easy to eat food in the house. So, if I'm craving something sweet, I have to make something. Some days that's enough to deter me, but if not, I still have to gather up all of the supplies, make the treat, let it cool and by that time I'm somehow calmed and lulled by the process, and eat much less than I would have if I'd just started shovelling. It really works for me. Even something as simple as sauteing pecans in butter and vanilla and a drizzle of maple syrup takes time, and the aromas and process really seem to do something...
Take a bath. I like taking a bath because then I look in the mirror and remind myself why I'm working so hard.
And finally, be kind to yourself.
