o you think that over-working out could be sabotaging my diet? I do it about 6 or 7 days a week. My cardio isn't that long (50 minutes), but to give you an idea, I'm doing the Arc Trainer at an incline of 10 and a resistance of 100. That's the maximum on both ranges. I go as fast as I possibly can. Then, I do weights and I go very high weights, 3 sets, to failure (exhuastion).
Yes, I totally think that's sabotaging your diet.
There is nothing wrong with that amount of exercise if you can keep it up BUT YOU HAVE TO FUEL YOUR BODY.
You don't say what you're eating on a daily basis, but if you're trying to do all of that on a 1500 or 1700 calorie diet at your height and weight, you are probably freaking out your poor body.
Especially when you're lifting weights you MUST provide your body adequate nutrition and lots of protein or it will begin to feed on itself - and not just fat, but lean muscle.
I suspect that your binges are caused because you're not getting enough food especially immediately after your workouts. I lift weights 3x a week, and I *have* to have a protein filled snack within 30 mins or so after working out or I get so hungry I could easily gnaw off my own arm.
What I do is put a scoop of protein powder in bottle of orange juice. It's got the carbs and the protein that I need after a workout.
