i've always struggled with overeating as a child. however when i got into middle school my overeating became binging because i started to lack control. ever since then, i've been steadily gaining weight. i use to just binge eat when i felt sad, depressed, scared, or anxious. but now it's become an everyday occurance.as a result my stomach is swollen everyday, and i always feel bloated. i just want it to stop. i've tried eating a normal amount but it won't work. for me it's easier to not eat at all than it is to eat smaller. so i think i'll try to fast for a month.

overeating as a coping mechanism has its disadvantages, yes. the only way to reduce it is to replace it with something else. for one, try healthier foods such as nuts, fruits etc., and maybe drink water instead when having the urge. also, if there's anything else that can help control ur negative emotions, such as music, meditation, journaling, looking at memes etc. give it a try instead, you might be able to replace the habit completely :)
