I'm vegan but live with my family, and they have a lot of meat, milk and other food that I usually won't eat. But when I binge I eat all. And I feel so guilty not only bc I just binged, but bc I ate an egg or sausages or something alse.
So if you binge, do you do it only on vegan/vegetarian food?

I haven't been binging in a very long time but yes, my binges have still been vegan as well. Maybe your body misses something it won't get from your usual diet and tries to compensate by making you binge on non vegan stuff? <3

try not to blame yourself too much. just do your best. it can be really hard to control yourself during binges.

when i had just gone vegan i struggled with the same thing, I get you. nowadays, my binges are nearly all vegan, except for the rare accidental stuff (bread w milk powder. bread with egg wash. generally stuff that contains seemingly unnecesarry additives that arent vegan.) The guilt of consuming animal products makes it so much worse ):

I only eat vegan food, I would feel so bad if I didn't! The guilt would be even worse. We have a vegan household so not much temptation anyway lol..

But I think you should not be as hard on yourself ❤️❤️ It's strange we are so harsh on ourself but when others do it you see it in another perspective... You do as good as you can!

When I binge I try to restrain from eating meat but sometimes I will have it because my bf or family has chicken, ham or beef patties i the house.

Vegan for life. There have been times where I contemplated having vegetarian stuff during a binge, like milk chocolate and caramel and shit like that. Maybe once I didnt know if something has vegan and I ate it anyway but then clocked, felt bad for about half a hot second, then moved on with my life. It's not a big deal but I never keep non vegan stuff in the house now that I live with just my bf and not in a house share like we used to.

i've been vegan for almost two months now and yeah the occasional non vegan binges were happening up until about two weeks ago. i never ever have meat though. however, i've finally stopped bc a) eating dairy literally makes my stomach feel like it's going to explode now that i'm used to not eating it on a daily basis and b ) the binge guilt is 100 times worse when there's also vegan guilt and it was just awful for my mental health. 

 

when looking for advice on how to stop, i encountered a few things like "try to involve yourself in more vegan communities online" and "remind yourself of your values and why you are vegan." it's been really helpful for me, so maybe you could try it as well :)

 

try not to feel too bad, this is a mental illness and it can make us do terrible things. bingeing on non-vegan stuff is probably one of the most tame fuck ups i've ever had bc of my ed.

After watching ‘Earthlings’ a switch went off in my brain and I no longer looked at animal products as food. That was 9 years ago and there have been maaaaany binges but always vegan. My therapist used to think my veganism was part of my eating disorder but when I said I don’t even eat animals when I binged she started to come around to the idea that it’s purely ethical not a way to restrict. In the UK you can now get anything vegan so I can still have my food fantasies met in a vegan way. I don’t find being around animal products tempting in any way – I find them too gross and cruel.

 

If you’re struggling, I suggest you do more research into animal rights issues and really getting your head around vegan nutrition so that you give more strength to your views. Education is key in creating a strong value.

I know everyone's telling you not to feel guilty and while I agree I also want to add that you're definitely not alone in this.

 

I've been vegan for 4 years now, vegetarian 2 years before that, and yes non-vegan binges definitely happened within the first ~2 years of switching. This was actually the primary reason I finally sought therapy for binge eating and it was only through that that I was able to stop. I also very much agree with what someone else said; look in to your local vegan communities and join them. It really helps to have a regular reminder why you're doing this.

 

Also, know the best vegan binge food out there just in case. The potato chip options are 10/10.

i'm a pretty strict vegetarian but only because after being vegetarian for only 2 years now if i eat even 1 bite of meat i will have the most horrific diarrhea the next day like i have to call off work and wear a diaper lol. i think if i binged on meat i would have to go to the hospital.

Almost always. I've been vegan a little over 10 months. There have been 2 binges where I've included processed food that contains milk. Other than that, I've binged on vegan foods only.

this is actually a great question. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 months, not to lose weight but for personal/other reasons and when I binge it’s on vegetarian food.

ah, Earthlings did the same for me. 'flipped a switch' is the perfect way to put it.
