Why do we binge eat at night

In your life, there are two very different times when you might want to binge: 1) When you're tired (when you're tired, you might want to eat right before you fall asleep, or when you've been up all night) and 2) When you're depressed, anxious, lonely, etc. If it happens a lot, it's time to stop bingeing. When you're tired, you tend to be more spontaneous and less responsible, which can mean you make bad decisions or fail to go to bed on time. Additionally, when you're hungry, you make really poor choices, so it's really important to keep a strict schedule of when you eat, as well as make sure you're staying hydrated.

It takes time to change behavior. In order to kick a binge eating habit for good, it’s important to make the behavior enjoyable again.

Start on a negative note

Write down what you're going to eat. When you start to feel hungry, stop what you're doing and think about what you're going to eat. You'll usually remember in an hour or two, and you'll be less likely to binge.

Don't eat unless you're hungry

As soon as you're hungry, eat. When you keep thinking about what you're going to eat, your brain stays in a high-anxiety state. It can easily get out of control. Just eat.
