I've been trying to stay away from all the sweets and junk that my family made over the holidays, but it's hard. I always find myself in a binge and purge cycle because I can't control how much I eat and when I eat it.
❤Please help, I'm so desperate right now.❤

Hello,

I try to put distance between the food and myself, whether that's by going out (idk if that's possible in the weather you have) or by reading a book/film. I've also asked people to hide the food from me so if I do go looking, it's not an instant binge since you have to look/think about if you really want to. Phoning a friend, exercise or anything like a craft to keep your mind off the temptations. Hope you get through it!
