Alright here is my question(s) is it a good idea to binge once a week as some sources suggest or not? I usually do a binge meal once or twice a week while eating within appropriate Cal during the week the binges usually go above 1500 calories plus meal calories during the day totaling maybe nearly 5000 Cal,that day.
For example my last binge consisted of 2 cans of tuna 200g of,leftover beef (mostly the fat nobody wanted) 2 hard boiled eggs onion 1/2cup butter and 300g of cheese I never eat cheese usually
Felt ok, just a little overstuffed and had too much salt as well. Plus I experienced instant diarrhoea 45 min later. Why? What could cause the diarrhoea. Thanks

In most cases binge eating is triggered by: 1. Severe caloric restriction (maybe you need to consume more calories on a daily basis) 2. Eating foods that are not nutritionally dense.
Try to eat more kale, broccoli, leafy greans, onions, mushrooms, colored vegetables, bone broth, nutritional yeast daily and liver weekly. Have some cod liver oil, fish, organ meats, eat some fermented foods. Minimize the amount of foods that are lower in nutrients (like fruit). Do a nutritional analysis of what you are eating daily by using FitDay or Nutritiondata.self.com
When you feel you are having a binge, just give in and try to eat nutritionally dense foods during the binge.
Your binge foods are all good protein sources except for cheese. I would stay away from cheese and eat something else instead (if you can). However, the most important thing is to increase your caloric amount by eating nutritionally dense foods on a daily basis.
When did you start having those binges? When you started to diet or was there anything else that triggered them?
