How to Bounce Back from a Binge
4. Are you lonely? When you find yourself staring into the refrigerator, close the door and call someone. If this is hard for you, try a free online weight loss support site like sparkpeople.com.
5. Are you upset? This can make you very vulnerable to a binge, so declare your kitchen "off-limits" until you calm down. Do some deep breathing, write it out, or take a walk. If you're consistently having a hard time with your feelings, you may want to seek help from a therapist or a weight-loss counselor.
Yes, binges may be an inevitable part of any weight loss program. But knowing what causes them, how to avoid them, and how to recover from them can make you more successful in the long run.
