I don't even entertain the binge word. It's gone from my thinking and vocabulary. No matter how much you eat, it's not helpful to label it, or to wonder if it was or wasn't a very bad thing. People may eat a lot of food at one time because they're hungry, or happy, or numbing pain, or taking care of themselves with the most effective coping method they have at the time. With practice, we develop eating, coping, celebrating skills that work better for us and feel better. Personally, I still have days where I want bigger meals, more indulgent food, more physical fullness. If I just go with it, no judgment, in the coming days there will be times when I'm naturally not as hungry and happier with lighter meals. It doesn't mean that I'm restricting, or overeating, or losing control. It's the natural up and down of appetite. The idea that we need the same amount of food every day is absurd, but that's the message diet thinking promotes.
