Most of us have a guilty pleasure, and binge eating can top anyone’s list. And it shouldn’t be acceptable, because this uncontrollable urge to chew something can lead to you consuming over a thousand calories in just a few minutes. While binge eating will definitely sabotage your weight loss goals, it’s usually triggered by stress. Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee recognized the urgency to get rid of the binge eating habit and shared a series of photos on Instagram in which she revealed seven tips to stop binge eating.
Anjali described the binge eating urges in simple words and wrote a long note in the caption revealing what leads to binge eating. “At some point in our lives, we all experience unnecessary stress that disrupts our controlled eating patterns and washes away all of our weight loss efforts. An angry phone call, a festival, child exams, an argument with your partner or a disagreement with your mother-in-law can cause the well-controlled tongue to start a binge that seems uncontrollable. And by the time you’re done with it, the damage is done,” she said.
The nutritionist said most of us tend to find comfort in food, saying, “It’s not a perfect world after all, with quiet workplaces, perfectly behaved children and terribly understanding husbands. We are all driven to food for comfort when we are under stress. When your feelings are pushed to their limits, your eyes will search and find food and that’s where your binge eating begins. After the storm is over, you feel terribly guilty about screwing up your diet.” She also pointed out the seven tips that will help you control the binge eating or that will help you stop the binge eating completely.
Keep a timetable and stick to your schedule. Determine a suitable time for each meal and try not to miss any.
Avoid storing snacks
Keep an eye on your shopping list so you don’t bring snacks like chocolates, cakes and pastries. Instead, go for healthier snacks like almonds and raisins.
Eat whole grains and legumes
Eating whole grains and legumes will provide necessary fiber and complex carbohydrates in your diet.
Don’t miss the exercise
Enjoying regular exercise will incorporate that necessary activity into your regimen.
Don’t skip breakfast
Never skip breakfast, but eat a heavy meal for breakfast, and eat a moderate lunch and a light dinner.
Replace your cheat meals
- If you ate something unhealthy last night, make sure you replace your next meal with a healthier one.
