Binging on your favourite foods always leads to a cycle of guilt and despair that could last a few days. For instance, a 55kg woman in her mid-30s, who works in a sedentary job, only needs about 1,500 calories a day. Exceeding that about over the course of a week might cause weight gain, that could possibly lead to even more guilt – and even more binging. Instead, simply by being conscious of exactly how much you’re eating can help. Use a calorie-counting app and record what you’re eating throughout the day so you are fully aware of how much energy and food your body is taking in.
