Binge eating.

Postby carlosm » Wed Dec 14, 2011 6:27 pm

Hi everyone,

To keep it short, I lost a lot of weight that took me 12+ months and now I'm with my ideal/healthy weight. I feel perfectly fine most of the time, but since a few months I been having some really horrible episodes of binge eating, as in going to the closer 24/7 and just buy all the sweets and craving food that I can think of and eat it. Most of the days I just eat healthy and exercise as usual, but this episodes of binge eating happens a few times a week. And is not like I'm hungry, because obviously with the amount of food that I ate regularly is just enough, but this episodes could make me consume 2k+ calories in a few hours and still keep eating until I cannot eat more. I lost all the mindfulness, all the control that I have.

I've been thinking a lot lately about self-image, how I relate to food and other questions, trying different practical solutions (changing diet, hours, etc), but still happens. If funny, the last time that happen I was in a social meeting and my brain could not stop telling me to eat, could not even focus in the conversation that I was having.

Do you have any meditation that could help with that? Or any books/suttas/etc?
Metta,

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
