Arrow Emotional Eating Linked To Stress/Exhaustion

I notice I still have patterns of binge/emotional eating when I am stressed or exhausted.

I've been doing this for a long time, and am recovered 12 years from Anorexia and Bulimia, but can't seem to completely kick the intermittent binge cycle (once weekly or so.)

Any advice? Suggestions? Anything?

I am recovered from Bulimia since 2005, but over the years became obese for various reasons. In December of 2013 I was diagnosed with Cancer at the age of 32. It was a real eye-opener to me that I needed to take care of myself better. Thus began my weight loss journey in October of 2014. At the beginning of my journey I did low carb. I've also done IF. My weight loss began to plateau, so currently I am following WW until I reach my UGW of 180lbs.

Hi I'm new here, so I don't have much experience on the boards, but I just wanted to say that I've been 20 years recovered from bulimia. I still have issues with bingeing and have doubled in weight since I stopped purging, but that's also due to various other health problems. The urge to binge hits me in the evenings so I've started taking 'Hunger Buster' capsules by Protein World 1 hour before my evening meal and so far they seem to be working. I don't go to bed with desperate urges to snack.

I also avoid the kitchen after my evening meal. Distraction techniques seem to help like listening to the radio (no adverts for food) , doing sudoku or playing computer games. Reading books is out because that requires calmness of mind and concentration. I need something to channel nervous binge energy into. Walking is quite a good one.

Anyway, I don't know if any of this will help but hopefully it might trigger some ideas for you
