I have a binge eating problem following a figure competition

I have a binge eating problem following a figure competition extreme diet. I have been binging on and off for 8 months and have gained 25lbs. I've tried everything and I need to take baby steps. Anyone have any advice for my first step....

Hi and welcome! If you haven't stopped restrictive diets yet. Stop!!!!! Starting a food journal will allow you to track your thinking and eating behaviors. It's an excellent beginning to find out the similarities and patterns of your thinking/behaviors.

Consult a dietician? That's what I'm doing. And get rid of ALL the sweet stuff in your house. Also, if you're going out somewhere and you know you'll spend money on junk food or something, don't bring too much cash with you. Bring the minimum and if you absolutely have to eat something sweet/junk food, drink an entire small bottle of water first.
