How can I avoid binging if we are also stockpiling for self-isolation?
Eating three regular meals and three regular snacks a day will help. Binging can be brought on by under eating, make sure you are eating enough at meal times. If your binge is due to emotions, think of ‘HALT’ - Are you Hungry? Angry? Lonely? or Tired? Make a list of how you can deal with all four in a positive way without using food. Reach out and talk to a friend, read a book, the list is endless. Imagine if you were symptom free, how would you like to spend your time? Or apply Anita Johnston Metaphor for feelings and food as described below.
