Yes binging! I would try to restrict less in the day so you don't feel that ravenous hunger

That's definitely binging, but if you're anything like me, restricting or not restricting, I still do this.

I wouldn't say you have BED, but you are "binging" due to restricting. There's a difference! Luckily this can be solved by being kinder to yourself and eating more with each meal so you don't have the overwhelming urge to overeat and then the guilt which comes afterwards. Hope you figure it out love!

Sounds like a binge to me. I think it might be because you are restricting more than you are used to - from my experience, I suggest talking steps to restrict slowly. It helped me a lot to do a normie restrict of 1400 then I dropped to 1200 and further each time I got comfortable.

My point is don't push too much and take care of your body :) - I hope this helped

I used to do this ALL the time; I dare say a solid 80% of my weight gain from my lowest weight three years ago was because of night time binges. I talked to a good friend of mine, a fourth year psych major at the time, and she suggested training myself to always have breakfast in the morning. It took a while to get over my night binges ( the urges are still there ), but this certainly helps because at night, when I'm craving foods with a steely resolve, I tell myself 'just tonight, if I can get through tonight without eating, I can eat [craved food] in the morning', and by the time I wake up in the morning, I'm not craving the same food I was the night before and am more inclined to control my eating.

You sound very young.....you may be overthinking things. I can't say definitely that you have an ED.

please stop restricting so hard. always eat something within an hour of waking and eat a snack or meal every 2 to 4 hours. focus on whole healthy foods to keep you satisfied. vegetables, lean protein, fruit, nuts, whole grains, beans. 

please be careful, and consider getting help from a dietitan or eating disorder therapist.

Yep, that's binge eating, hon. <3

You've basically just described how my ED started. I remember one day my mum mentioning the word 'bulimia' and in hind sight she was right. I was in a very loooooong restrict- binge cycle where the episodes of restriction were essentially purging. Sometimes I would fast for a few days at a time but mostly it was just extreme calorie restriction or skipping meals.
It wasn't for a couple of years that I added self-induced vomiting into the mix as well (which i do not recommend and which did not result in weight loss but only more binging for me).

Back in those days I hadn't worked out that 'high restriction' was the only way for me to avoid (or at least reduce) binging.

I would say that is a binge, I'm sorry if that's not what you want to hear xx

Please try high restriction. Eat breakfast and lunch and dinner and try to hold off eating dinner until close to bed time (my personal advice) so you can force yourself to try and sleep instead of binging. Drink a lot of water. I hope it gets better, I'm in the same cycle
