Emotional Eating is painful. You don’t have to feel helpless when it comes to your pantry. Binge eating does not have to be forever.
There is a way out!
You don’t have to do this alone. Working with someone who understands is tough to find when it comes to binge eating. The fear of judgement and persecution can be debilitating. You don’t have to push yourself to physical limits with food to feel better. It’s all a cycle that ends up crashing in the end.
You can put an end to the cycle.
I wish I could tell you that all the hiding is good for you. I wish I could tell you that with a click of a button you’ll stop. Binge eating disorder makes people feel helpless. You don’t have to be trapped. If your frustrated, I hear you!
Dieting may be bad word.
Sometimes, there are different avenues a binge eater has tried to activate in order to lose weight. Often we find many (dieting mindset, fasting, shakes) provide false hope and eventual dissatisfaction. We wish they would work… I wish they did too.
If this is you – trying to gain control over your emotional eating and you have found it difficult or near impossible you are not the only one.
You don’t have to live like this!
Research shows that there are ways to fight back. Binge eating treatment uses a mix of interventions including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). You don’t have to look it up. Just know it works.

This is real.
The process includes finding automatic negative thinking which creates self defeating core beliefs. That’s psychological talk for – we need to take the bad thoughts and find a way to stop believing them. They are often unconscious and require a therapist to guide you through. Some clues include judgmental thinking and feelings of isolation. Others include the “I shoulds,” regret, and others.
You will see a differnce.
Results come in at different speeds. Some come quickly, some take a bit more time. I can tell you that when you begin to see what is holding you back, problem solving takes hold and change begins to happen. It’s one the main ingredients in the evolution of your experience. This helps you understand that negative thinking does not run your life.
