Binge Eating Treatment
Are Binges Keeping You From Being the Person You Want to Be?
Are you concerned that binge eating may be taking over your life? Do you become preoccupied with eating when you’re under stress and use eating as an escape, even if that escape is fleeting and often followed by shame, guilt, frustration or the need for more? Maybe you disappear into your room or office and binge without realizing at the time how much you’ve really eaten. You become upset with yourself after binge eating and then become depressed. Research has demonstrated that people with binge eating disorder report more health problems, trouble sleeping, stress and suicidal thoughts. It may be that those binges feel like a vacation, but then your friends, family members or partner ask where you were and what you were doing, and you missing social or work events to eat.
You may be afraid that your friends or significant other will find out how much you’ve eaten. Maybe you’ve been told by your doctor that you have a problem, but when your cravings hit, it feels like you have to give in. Now you feel depressed, frustrated and ashamed. Perhaps you’ve been told you just need “more self control” or need to “work harder” to diet, but that didn’t solve your problem. Are you tired of hiding your binge eating and covering your tracks? Do you wish you could better understand what’s causing your binge eating, learn how to truly quit overeating and finally live in accordance with your health goals?
The signs of binge eating disorder can be difficult to recognize, and you might wonder how your eating has spiraled out of control. You have health and fitness goals you’ve intended to keep but you can’t seem to stay on track. It may be that you’re married or have children and you want to live a healthy, long life for your loved ones. Besides your appearance, perhaps you’ve started to worry about your physical health. You may feel lonely, stuck and desperate to talk to someone who can understand what you’re going through and help you overcome you binge eating so that you can be the person you want to be— someone who has self-control over food. Someone who has found real freedom from the uncomfortable cravings.
Many People Struggle With Binge Eating as well as the Frustration and Shame that Inevitably Follow
Binge eating often leads to isolation, especially because most people who are struggling tend to feel unlovable and inadequate. But in truth, you’re not alone. Binge eating appears to be the most common eating disorder in America, and this is especially hard to fight when our modern lifestyle has made fast food and junk food more available than ever.
It’s only human to seek out good feelings and avoid bad feelings. No one likes to feel uncomfortable, powerless, lonely, frustrated, angry, etc. You’re probably using binge eating to deal with your negative emotions. For example, having that perfect “guilty pleasure” dessert might make you feel cared for and comforted when you’re feeling disconnected during of your day. Or you might often feel empty and lonely inside, and then that “binge eating mode” helps you feel alive and euphoric again, even when you know that in reality, the feeling is temporary and it won’t really make up for the empty feeling inside.
It can be difficult to recognize and fully understand negative feelings, especially if you’ve become used to numbing or avoiding them. For example, you might find yourself on the couch with your favorite ice cream after a fight with your spouse without fully realizing how you got there. You might know that your binge eating is disrupting your life, but feel lost and helpless to stop. The good news is that you’re not alone. There’s help and hope. Binge eating treatment can help you better understand the root cause of your problem and help you gain control over your actions and emotions so you can restore that life you want to live where you’re proud of yourself, confident, healthy and in control.
