Binge Eating aka Gluttony?
#1
I've found myself in the last year making a concerted effort to be healthier. A hurdle to surmount was a tendency to dismiss a lot of health culture as self idolatry a symptom of materialism. A lot of what I did and consumed was though far from giving glory to God and far from the 'good' of creation. In trying to be healthier I find myself a lot freer now to devote myself to my duties and obligations to both God and my neighbour.

However....

While I've had much success at this stage I find it hard to avoid "binging" on processed filling unhealthy food. I've looked at it from the psychological perspective and "binge eating disorder" etc, and some of that is helpful but another aspect dawning on me is the fact that it is/may be greed and gluttony.

I was wondering what spiritual exercises particularly against this vice there might be and what saints and writings might there be to consider and help combat this?
