I'd like to know if anyone has had struggles with this issue ?

I hate it, I do it twice a week and it's draining. I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle but mentally I am not strong when it comes to this issue.

I usually binge after 3-4 days of hard training. The foods would include sandwiches, sugary foods, some chocolate and chips. The day after I would feel so drained, bloated, tired and heavy i'd probably do a fast.

If you have experienced this I would love to hear your feedback on what helped you.

Do you do a food log? I used to have a harder time with this issue, then I got MyFitnessPal (food app) and I saw that I was WAY undereating on my "good" days, which inevitably would lead to a binge. Like I'd eat 1100-1200 calories, and I train 2x a day plus I work a physical job!

So between the app and some reading I've brought that up to 1800-2200 depending on my day, and I've gone from no carbs to carbs. Not processed stuff, but sweet potato, quinoa, rice, fruit. I only restrict carbs the week of a weigh in now to coincide with the water/salt manipulation.

It might be worth logging your food for a week without changing anything aboht the way you eat to see what you're averaging with your calories and macros now.

I second what NewThai suggested. I have found the same thing in the past.. not eating enough on the good days and binging hard to.. for lack of a better word.. compensate by overeating the bad days. It's also helped to plan out my meals and food prep. I'm less likely to eat out/binge eat if I know I'm supposed to eat something that's already prepared.
