How can i lose weight without counting calories? I just always makes me binge but if i dont count calories, as soon as i eat one "unhealthy" thing i think i have ruined everything and so may as well binge on junk.

Does anyone have an advice / tips on how to lose weight while not counting cals? I want to lose about 20lbs by July! is this doable? feel very frustrated as cant seem to lose as just keep binging :(

You can get protein from things like tofu, chickpeas, nuts and lentils.
Chia seeds are a high source of protein and they don't taste of anything so you could sprinkle them on top of some porridge or yogurt or a smoothie.
Could you try eating 3 healthy low calorie meals per day and then allowing yourself a couple of small treats in the evening to stop you binging? I do this and try and limit my carbs as much as possible (usually just to one meal per day) and I still have a chocolate bar or a few biscuits in the evening and I'm consistently losing 1-2 pounds each week. Make sure you drink loads of water too as thirst can be mistaken for hunger. I also try and walk as much as I can, and if I'm having a lazy day indoors then I'll march on the spot in front of the telly for an hour. Better than nothing

Look up the McDougall way of eating, or the Forks Over Knives website. Plant based, whole foods. Lots of grains and starches.

Do raw veg and protein for a fortnight.

Loads of huge salads, avocado, tomatoes, peppers, radishes, asparagus, cucumber, celery.

Chicken, fish and eggs.

So you wont be losing any muscle due to lack of protein, but will lose fat.
