Seriously. That’s it. So if you’re looking for strategies to stop binge eating, the solution is so free and easy that it probably seems too good to be true. But it isn’t. Hear me out.how to stop binge eating

The only thing that separates a binge from a non-binge is permission: Permission to eat what you want, when you want, without guilt, until you’re done eating. Permission to not be on a diet.

That’s all.
