It is clear to me that I have only lost weight by eliminating triggers. My worst diet trigger has been eating foods with sugar in them. After I eat sugar my cravings increase and it usually ends with a binge of 1,000 plus calories.
My advice to you if you suffer from binges that are killing your diet efforts is that you try to analyze after a binge or diet crash what the first bite was that triggered the event. If you are able to do this you can then turn your failure into a learning experience.
