THE BINGE EATING
FINDing FREEDOM FROM FOOD CHAOS
Help! I can't stop eating
I’m guessing what you really want to know is whether I can help you. The first thing I would want to say is that I’ve been there and I get it. If you are here on my website, I’m imagining this has been a problem for a long time. I know you have spent a long time blaming yourself and believing the answer lies in simply trying harder and finding more willpower.
Having a disordered relationship with food is becoming increasingly common these days. Many people struggle to manage their food intake so how do you know when to get help?
Perhaps you have tried talking to people about your binge eating only to be assured that they sometimes eat ‘too much’ as well. Maybe you struggle to see your bingeing as a valid problem. There is so much secrecy and shame surrounding this issue. I want you to know you are not alone and there is help and free resources available.
My hope is that no one has to struggle with binge eating alone. I offer free content via Instagram, YouTube and the Life After Diets podcast to help you understand your relationship with food and your body. There is the option of working with me one-to-one or to join a therapy or recovery support group.
I believe recovery is about being able to choose what makes you feel good, mentally, emotionally and physically. This is what will set you free from food obsession and misery. Finding sanity with food and making peace with your body is the first step to living the life you deserve.
If you feel anxious or distressed about your eating or body image, your feelings are valid and you deserve to receive support and to see yourself as someone who is thoroughly worthy, no matter what your difficulties with your eating. We cannot hate ourselves into being happier and healthier versions of ourselves. It just doesn’t work that way.
