When I used to not eat breakfast regularly or only ate a small bowl of (empty carb type) cereal, I binged daily. I truly credit changing my breakfast habits with the start of changing my bad eating habits. I have only binged a few times in five weeks since starting to eat a substantial consistent breakfast daily. May not work for everyone but it works for me. Just consider this another thing to check off on the list of 'doesn't work for me'....each person is unique.
