Do you or a loved one suffer from Binge Eating Disorder? Binge eating is the most common eating disorder in the U.S., affecting more than 8 million men and women, accounting for more than 3x the number of those with anorexia and bulimia together. Binge eating disorder involves rapidly and regularly eating excessive amounts of food, feeling out of control while eating, and feelings of guilt or shame afterwards.
Binge eating disorder can lead to a vicious cycle of weight gain, unhealthy dieting, and emotional problems including feelings of hopelessness, powerless, and depression. These feelings may lead to a personal to compensate by overeating, leading to obesity. While some may maintain a “normal” weight while binge eating, many often turn to extreme dieting, further complicating their lives.
Some signs a person may suffer from Binge Eating Disorder include:
-eating until uncomfortably full
-eating large amounts of food even when not hungry
-eating alone caused by embarassment
-feelings of disgust, depression, or guilt after the fact
-gaining excessive weight
Through therapy, you will learn that there is a solution to binge eating – and it is achievable through work and dedication.
What’s Eating You? Emotional eating is eating in response to emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, happiness, or boredom – rather than true bodily hunger. When emotional eating becomes severe, it can evolve into binge eating. Many clients who suffer from emotional eating have tried every diet in the world. They’ve lost, regained, and added more weight over the years, and each time believe that their weight problems will be fixed for good.
Without dealing with the source of emotional eating, even a medical surgery such as lap-band will not help. Why not avoid bariatric surgery b y following emotional, nutritional, and lifestyle strategies designed especially for you and your current situation? If you eat out of emotional pain to feel better quickly, numb or avoid problems, ignore past trauma such as divorce, abuse, illness, or inner problems – you may suffer from emotional eating.
It’s important to know that there is a way to overcome the co-dependency you have with food, and that it isn’t taking food away first.
