I have a problem with binge eating.
I am wondering if anyone has battled this? Has being raw helped?
I have been doing this for the past 6 years, it is very hard to stay away from all the SAD crap...Any suggestions.?

raw has helped immensely. i, daily, still eat too much on raw..but im chowin down on raspberrie smoothies rather than oreos. the longer you keep attempting raw...be it 50%, high raw, or 100%...the easier it will get. ive been in this game for a year and a half..and im still not where id like to be..but im so so soooo much closer than i was before i started my journey with raw.
keep it up..itll get easier. try surrounding yourself with nothing but raw food if youre able to. youll find when you want to binge, and have nothing but fruit and veggies, that youre more like "lskjgslkgj darn it.." because thats not what you want to eat. bingings a lot about chemical addiction to junk food, in my opinion. it was most specifically wheat and sugar for me - and those are the two products im MOST intolerant too. usually turns out that way, though - what youre most addicted too youre least tolerant too.
itll get easier..just dont beat yourself up for it because thats just unnecessary added stress.

I am. Still am although I'm raw. I find many raw meals don't stay in my belly very long. 2 hours later I'm hungry again. I have not cheated today so I'm super happy! If I raid the house I try to eat healthy. At least when the next day comes I wont feel so bad :p

i am tring to overcome a serious sugar addiction...if i find the need to plunge, raisins do the trick....just need to brush really well after.
I was able to voercome binge eating/cravings thru 18 days of juice fasting, but I wasn't vigilant enough and it came back. I have been battling food issues my whole life, but binge eating has really had a hold on my for about 10 years. I feel like I am almost able to see the light at the end of the tunnel as I work thru the emotional crud and free myself from old thinking patterns.
