I have had a sh!tty month-diet wise and gained 2 kgs! And haven't been spot on with my workouts. The thing is i live in a tropical climate and its summertime here so I can't run so stick to walking. But i feel its not enough. Please give me tips on portion control and how to stop this binge?
P.S I eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink. 10 glasses of water.

    Just do it? Not sure what we can tell you that will force you to eat less. Log everything. Pre-log when you can and stick to your plan. Eat mindfully, not mindlessly. Fruits and veggies are great! Just remember they have calories too. Protein and grains and nuts and dairy are equally great.

    Why can't you run? The heat isn't an excuse...

    I find pre planning/pre logging meals helps with portion control, even moreso if you can prep your meals in advance so they're ready. If you know you have food ready, you might be less likely to eat more of something else.

    2 kg. Pshaw! I can gain that in one hour. You're probably exceeding your macro goal for carbs and that's likely why you continue to binge. How are you doing for reaching your macro goals of protein, and fat?

    I have a mostly plant based diet so get my proteins only from eggs. I recently quit meat(chicken) because I had a horrible experience. So now the sight of chicken makes me want to throw up. I pre log everything and cook my meals from scratch. All healthy stuff like vegetable and *kitten* but end up binging on sweets and fried snacks

    You need to stop the excuses. Stop over eating. Make the fried snacks and sweets fit your calories.

    People run marathons in deserts.

    You do realise that only ultra marathoners and iron man type of people can do that lol. Run in the deserts i mean. I am not making excuses. I really love running as it keeps my weight in control but i do feel like fainting in this type of weather

    People run where I am all summer... It gets over 40 C. So stay hydrated, maintain your electrolytes, and fuel your runs.

    You've not been on many running forums then, people just run early or late and stay hydrated.

    No i admit i am not a veteran runner and have no in-depth knowledge about running. All the information I have is from mfp. That's how i got into running. But do recommend some sites that might be helpful.

    Op doesn't want to run in the heat. Fair enough.Doesn't sound like an excuse to me.
    Op you could try running at a time of day when it's less hot. Or try another activity such as swimming? Plus you say you're drinking lots of water;are you also getting enough salt/sodium?

    #1, seek professional help if you feel that food and weight issues are ruining your life. I wasted 30 years on eating disorder issues, black and white rigid thinking, and guilt and shame. Please don't let this happen to you. (Apologies in advance if this doesn't apply to you, but words like "puke" and "binge" just resonate like that with me because of my own history.)

    #2 Be kind and loving with yourself, and forgiving of mistakes.

    #3 I also hate moving around in hot sticky weather. Do you have access to a pool or an air conditioned gym?

    Pre log your day.

    There's plenty of other stuff you can do instead of walking... be creative!

    If the bingeing is because you're eating your feelings, maybe you need to figure out other ways of dealing with stuff?

    I live in the high desert. 40 C on the daily during the summer...I run at night. U can make it work if you think running will help you reach your goals. And you can start with walk-jog, if you're new or haven't done it in awhile. Doing too much at once can be frustrating and cause a rage quit!
