Binge eating

I eat too much and it is making me really unhappy and obese and poor. Does anybody else here struggle with this?

Today I ate a large doner kebab, a pie, some fudge and a whole sharing bag of Cadbury's Heroes. I'm binge eating again. It's costing me a fortune - the doner kebab on its own was £7.50 which is a lot of money.

This time last year I was in excellent shape. For a middle-aged man I looked pretty decent. I still do 100 push ups every day and lift weights. I also walk for well over an hour each day to get to work. But I've started to get really flabby.

Since I became a Christian I gave up drinking too much alcohol and a lot of other bad habits that used to comfort me. But those bad habits have been replaced by cramming my face full of pies and takeaways.

I'm too fat to go out running as it will wreck my knees. So idk how I'm going to exercise off all this weight. Any ideas please?

Food companies have high paid scientist working for them to make sure the junk is highly palatable, highly addictive and no nutrition. When you feel like binging/eating: 1 ask yourself: Why am I eating? 2. Find a Stop habit. If you are going to eat and the answer to #1 is not, I am hungry. Find a new habit. It's not genetic, its 100% habit. Chew on flavored gum, Journal, meditate, take a walk, have raw veggies, hard boiled eggs, string cheese available snacks. Stock up on high protein items, they are harder to over consume. If you need carbs, eat them with protein NOT fat. Fat w/carbs will also spike your dopamine receptors. LOVE yourself more than anything/anyone else. Work to make changes because you love yourself so much that you don't want to keep putting processed poison in your body.
