Think the binge could be a hormonal thing?
I have a pre-menstrual binge just about every month that lasts a few days. No matter how much I eat, no matter how full I am, I'm still ravenous. I could easily eat every hour on the hour. It's definitely worse if I have chips, chocolate, pizza, and other junk food around. I especially crave chinese food. YUM! My strategy: A huge bowl of steamed veggies or some oatmeal with lots of cinnamon and only a bit of sweetener will usually satisfy enough to slow me down and keep the calories somewhat under control. (only somewhat!)
I don't worry about it too much, since I usually have a few days a month where I'm just not that hungry and could easily make it through the day on just a couple pieces of fruit and feel just fine. Probably, it all balances out in the end.
Me too.....man there are some days I can just EAT. It sucks but it goes away eventually. I unfortunately do get carb-cravings when I'm stressed too though....and even though I KNOW I don't need to eat and it won't help, I still find myself doing it....horrible habit. I've been struggling to break it for years.
