    Hello, i am male 30, i started having binging symptoms like 6 months ago, now its like every day, or so, i mainly binge on cardsm icecream, cookies, chips, snickers, sweet bread, etc. Every day i say its the last time, and the next day it happens again, i cant stop it, i eat for hours nonstop till i cant stand, i dont vomit, i cant breath then, so go to sleep, and feel disgusted like a pig, heavy, . I am not over weight though, am normal, but tend to gain weight easily. i live in china and here its so bad, the weather is bad, depressing fog smog, and am lonely, so i comfort myself with food, things became worse since half a year, i know if i ask for help from hospital , doctors will say only i can help myself, and no one else, but i cant, i tried everythng, like writing a diary for commitments to stop this binging, but i cant do it. I am so depressed. I am so badly depressed.

    just to give an idea of what i can binge, my binging lasts almost 2 hours, during this time i go to the store more than once, first time i might get : a huge can of 600 grams of ice cream, 3 snickers bars, large pack of Oreo cookies, large piece of cake, potato chips large. After that i might get some more, and i feel so heavy i cant breath, cant stand, cant walk, i need to sleep to forget it, and disconnect. sometimes i feel so guilty i try to throw up, but i did it only a few times, coz i hate to cause vomiting, so i have to wait till the feeling of heaviness goes away, or sometimes after sleeping i go to work out and walk,which is so hard coz i cant move and have trouble moving coz of the food inside me.

    hi ross, i would recommend reading through the journals on this site, there is lots of good advice in them. i would also recommend getting hold of a book called “brain over binge” by kathryn hansen. don’t worry, you are among friends here – we have all been through it and we will try to help you as best we can. you are not alone any more xxx

    Ross, oh boy does your intake remind me of my trips to the store! I wish I had the money back that I’ve spent on junk food..WHEW. I love this site, it gives me an opportunity to read other post and post myself with honesty and realize that you have alot of company.

    The big thing that keeps coming up is that dieting does not work nor does restricting what you eat. If you could have all the ice cream you wanted, I would guess it would soon lose its appeal. Give yourself permission to eat anything and see what happens. I check this site every 3 to 4 hours just to read and reaffirm what is happening with me. I’m 14 days binge free now and for the first time in 50 years, I have a handle on my binging. Good luck and have a sane day
