Develop an attitude to control your impulsivity by diverting the attention towards a positive hobby.
Fortunately there are treatment options available to treat this unfortunate illness. Usually a multidisciplinary treatment plan involving medication, nutrition counselling, and cognitive behavioural therapy can work to achieve remission.

Hello,

My recommendation for treatment would be individual psychotherapy to discover what is driving the binge eating.
