I recently stopped counting calories and this has lead to a lot of binge eating. I am around food a lot because my mom started a baking business a few months ago and I help her everyday. I had anorexia for a few months before the pandemic. Being trapped in my house by the pandemic for a few months helped my eat more and gain a little weight. I began to cry A LOT because of what I ate. I got in a pretty good mental state by September, then Thanksgiving came along. All of the food and the stupid Holiday products that said “limited edition” caused me to eat a lot and I was pretty overwhelmed. I began purging and that continued for a few months. Two weeks ago, I stopped counting calories completely and mostly stopped purging. I am now struggling with binge eating and I hate it. When I’m baking things, I just keep eating little bits until I have obviously eaten way too much and tasted nothing (and I end up crying). I think it is probably because I have been monitoring every little thing I ate for the last two years and now I have no limits. I don’t know what to do and I would like some advice.
