A binge is caused buy an urge, an uncontrollable desire to eat, as much as possible and right away. Without the urge, there won’t be a binge.

Why you binge and what to to do about it

The hypothalamus, sometimes called the “lizard brain” or “animal brain” or “lower brain”. My clients have lovingly started referring to this brain as the food zombie!!

The hypothalamus controls hunger body temperature, thirst, fatigue, and sleep. This is the primal selfish part of the brain that wants you to over eat, it wants you to binge eat, because it’s main job is to keep you alive and it hates discipline!!

Your food zombie will rationalise, It will tell you things like: “oh well, you’ve eaten one cookie, you might as well buy more binge food” , “I just need to get over this day, a binge will make me feel better”, “Your day is already ruined, you may as well finish the Oreo sleeve so you won’t be tempted tomorrow”. “nuts are healthy, one more handful won’t hurt”. This is called an urge.
