What should you do? Eat 3 regular meals a day, with snacks whenever you're hungry.

Sounds so simple, eh? I don't really understand your doctor's logic, is he advising you against eating...? I would try and see someone else, surviving on liquids doesn't work, your body needs food (unless he means complete meal supplements, but even then they normally only supplement a meal plan).

There isn't really much I can tell you (because recovery is a process either forced upon you or taken voluntarily) other than you need to stop this, and if you can't stop and are already out of your depth: get some help from someone, communicate, and get yourself back on the right track with a plan. The binging is caused by a biological response to a lack of food, and as soon as you start to eat normally, that urge will go away. Same with the overeating, it will stop if you eat enough to sustain your body. The urges are your body's way of saying something isn't right. But you probably already know this, I'm not one to preach recovery to people, I'm just laying it on the table. Because there are no nice ways of saying this, don't shoot the messenger, it's either recovery or death, ultimately.

Eating disorders do have a tendency to get worse. And you know you won't find beauty down this road. Get help, darling. Please <3

Disorders, especially eating ones can get out of control and are very hard to disrupt. As much as someone would like to change their eating habits, there may come a time where your own free will is not enough anymore. If you think you're at this stage, get help as soon as you can so it doesn't get out of hand.

Good luck!

Recovery is always a voluntary option, no matter what stage of the disorder someone is in. However, I do understand where you're coming from, recovery is difficult and you should seek help, but it's always possible.
