I’ve created this list to help you get distracted from binge eating and the unhealthy effects of binge eating. However, I do want to note that finding things to do instead of Binge Eating are just crutches. For real long term results, you might want to seek treatment of some kind. You can start by reading up on it. This book by Kristin Gerstley might help: “End Binge Eating Now”

41 Things to do instead of Binge Eating. Stop binge eating now. There is help. Learn more.

Food tastes good right? (well, most food anyway) – so it’s no wonder sometimes we can find ourselves eating mindlessly or binge eating. This isn’t always a good idea though, right? Weight gain, health problems, self esteem issues, self hate, anger, resentment, regret, more binge eating, and the cycle continues, etc are all things that can come from binge eating. One thing that has helped many people (myself included) is finding something else to do instead of binge eating. I’ve gathered this list (some I found online, some I thought of myself) to help with binge eating or mindless eating. Hope you find it helpful.
