Avoiding foods helps me. I LOVE chips, cookies, cake, candy, chocolate...anything bad in excess and it's always in excess. LOL I try to avoid them as much as possible. I don't cut them out entirely, but 1) I buy smaller packages, so if I DO binge, it's not as bad as it could have been 2) I don't buy things packaged if I can help it. If I have to make the cookies, I appreciate them more, plus want to share them. My mom loves my cookies, so I'll make a dozen and take some to her, so I'm *at worst*, eating 6 small cookies. 3) Certain things I do just have to avoid completely. Like those mini chocolate covered donuts. I will eat a whole bag at once. Plus, I've cut out dairy so that helps with some of the packaged snacks I want to binge on. If I "can't" buy them, I won't.
