Each binge is preceded by a psychological trigger.
If you examine your thought patterns, you'll realize that their rationale is completely false; objectively, you've probably never benefited from giving in to these thoughts.

This way, you create a controlled binge day and that is psychologically different from an uncontrolled binge.
Cardio doesn't always necessarily lead to excess hunger or binging.
Some people are more sensitive to large quantities of cardio and are more binge-prone than others. Reducing the amount of cardio lessens the urge to binge or makes it disappear altogether.
Practice flexible dieting, which allows you to fit anything into your diet.

Binge eaters tend to aggressively cut calories while leaning on willpower to deal with hunger and lack of energy.
But willpower is limited, so this strategy will backfire.
To be in control does not mean restraining. A person who is in control should have the capacity and freedom to self-govern.
Rather than fighting with your body, provide it with an autonomous control by allowing all kinds of foods back in your life, yet eating consciously, paying attention to your meals, savoring them fully. Being mindful can maximize your pleasure and minimize your eating.
