I've been there myself, not so long ago thing is you can stop that. You know anorexia somehow will always be present in your life, even if you get to control it. You DON'T want to be anorexic but yet you THINK you're fat and you WANT to be skinny, am I right? and everytime you eat, you feel you lose control and you think "I've already ruined my diet, why stopping? Now I'm free to eat all I want" It's not you love food, it's because you feel sad because of eating, it can lead you to think you'll never get to be thin and food comforts you in those moments (even if you feel guilty afterwards). BUT I have to tell you that eating regular meals along the day will make you stop binging (of course, it'll be hard at the beginning). It won't make you any fatter as long as you eat healthy and balanced, and if you actually need to lose weight, then make portions a bit smaller BUT enough to fill you up, otherwise your effort won't work. You need to stop thinking about weight, it's TRIGGERING!! and you'll see it goes away after you get to eat normal amounts again and stop binging.
It needs time, but I know you can do this.
If you ever need help, don't hesitate and pm/vm me I'll be here for you

Hey there,

I suggest that you reach out and let people help you. I know that might be hard to do but you shouldn't have to fight this on your own. The more support you have through this the better. Do you think you could reach out to your family and friends and just ask them for support?

I agree that eating meals all throughout the day will help you immensely. If you nurture your body you will feel less desire to binge. If you eat regular, healthy, meals your cravings won't be as intense.

Bingeing is usually due to emotions so if you can work on addressing the emotions you are feeling before/during/after a binge you can slowly over come the compulsion to binge.

I really hope this helped and if you need anything feel free to use teenhelps many resources.
