making structured eating a habit

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and please do tell me if I'm asking 'appropriate' questions and if not, where would be a better community for me. I don't want to disrupt anything here - non-intentionally of course!

In recovery, why are binges and over-eating so common? I used to be more restrictive, and now I find myself binge-eating more. I don't purge now I think that is a good thing, however I hate feeling so out-of-control with the eating. Is this natural? Is it my body's way of trying to get to a balance of sorts?

I have heard of something called structured eating, which is eating certain times of the day regardless of anything else. The problem is, I'm not sure how to start this. I overeeat especially at night, so I feel no appetite during the day, only to repeat this same cycle. How does one break from this?
