binge eating

Why overeating is not your fault and what to do about it.

As you may have heard me confess before, I have struggled in the past with binge eating. It became my full time job trying to solve the problem, I could bore you with all of the tactics, tools and things I tried but why don’t we cut to the fact that the biggest shift happened when I realized:

It's Not About The Food.

I use to focus on food with the hopes that it would transform the way I felt, and ultimately my life. I would dive deep in the world of diets, exploring and studying every answer to every symptom I self diagnosed. The extra weight? The depression? The need to binge eat? Its gotta be my diet, right? Yep, years spent searching for the answer to my host of problems, while mentally exhausting myself trying to be fixed.

Post Weekend Food Guilt.

You wake up Monday morning, you ate a ton of "bad food" on the weekend, you feel sluggish and bloated. Those temporary enjoyments are leaving you full of regret. What do you automatically do? Most plan drastic actions to undo the damage. You plan on "good behavior" all week, salads, workouts, juices etc. Sound familiar?
