  • Doktor Öz çok iyisiniz sizin gibi saygın Türklerin böyle güzel yerlere gelmesi Türkiye’nin gurur kaynağı yapıyor sizi. Also thank you so much for sharing her story. It inspired a lot of people. Including myself.

  • Hey Abbey, do you have any experience with intuitive eating when it comes to autism? Being autistic comes with a lot of self-imposed restrictions and rituals surrounding eating, but it doesn’t come from the place of dieting, it sort of puts the mind at ease. Would you consider filming a video about it?

  • My sister is a stress eater and she had to diet because her weight was interesting with some medical thing and she quit her job and came home and was trying to stress in and me and the rest of my family looked like bulls in China shops while trying to get the junk food into a room with a lock. I know it sounds mean but it’s better than loseing her. Shes somewhat better now though

  • What this woman does when she feels depressed, cause when i do i end up having serious episodes of over eating, sometimes i can avoid it but if i cant sleep i will probably end up eating anything i wish, and i want to end that…. And i dont know what to do…, people tell me to drink water but when the urge comes e just forget about water and my goals for weight loss… Its truly sad i havent found a way to win this thing. I need help and i dont know how to get it…

  • May you share the link of the NLP program by tony robbins =) i dont kow if you get the credit for it or not but I would love to support you if you did. Im ready for a new me

  • Can you review Arbonne? It’s a MLM in the US, idk where else. But all these girls on my IG just started selling that crap. It’s 100% a diet and the company says it’s not lol

  • Thank you so much. I can feel your words coming from the heart. It’s nice to feel that I’m not alone in my feelings and that I can do this and overcome this eventually. I’m almost at my ideal weight, but this is about the time when I start sabotaging myself, get impatient and mess up.

  • I can relate to her story cause I lost my mom and food was my comforter. I developed diabetes, gained so much weight and now I’m trying to reverse it.

  • Everyday Dr. OZ has the things on his show Sometimes this happens with women hormones get out of wrack in older women like my self be blessed in your lifetime

  • An Introductory Guide To Ending Emotional Eating Forever

    https://www.jackpotdeals.co/2020/07/an-introductory-guide-to-ending.html?m=1

    Emotional overeating is almost a joke in our society – movies, TV shows, and the resulting stereotypes cause many of us to laugh about how much ice cream it takes to get over a boyfriend, or how much chocolate we need to overcome rejection. But for those who actually suffer from emotional overeating, it’s anything but funny

    This powerful guide will provide you with everything you need to finally overcome this sometimes devastating eating problem.

  • there should be more talks about emotional eating as a medical disorder, because so many people are suffering from it without even knowing it///

  • I have binge eating disorder and I’m trying to overcome it, it’s working actually. I was (still am) overweight or as you wanna call it “obese” but so far I have lost 6kg.

  • Oh yes because men are never stressed out. Tired of the martyr women out there thinking their husbands are having a spa vacation every day in the office with long commutes bad bosses demanding clients hostile coworkers and the pressure of being a breadwinner. But oh how dare they feel stressed!

  • Exactly the same like what im suffering right now. I compete in bikini competition and i won in that competition then suddenly now i gain more than 20kg than my competition weight. I currently lock myself in my house. I dont want to go out. Soo depressed coz im too ashamed for what happen to me now. Thanks for this.

  • It’s so interesting, l think most food itself is a drug (bad processed foods). If people realize that the bad food is part of the stress, they can avoid it but it’s a commitment just like say quitting smoking….hate to be harsh but it’s the truth.

  • This is the truest video about binge eating… Unfortunately it’s soo sad �� I used to intermittent fasting eating healthy.. Then I went on a water fast.. While refeeding hell broke loose and am eating uncontrollably.. I can’t even intermittent fast as I used to..

  • As a mom, how do you protect your boy from diet culture?? Specially around family, when they make comments such as: “agh I’m so fat!” Or “I think I deserve this because I worked out!” Etc.

  • man I’ve never related more. same boat loads of fitness, nutrition, mindfulness knowledge, diets etc etc but on the binge and this niggling feeling that I need to get out this cycle and make changes.
    thank you so much for spending your time and effort to make this video

  • What this woman does when she feels depressed, cause when i do i end up having serious episodes of over eating, sometimes i can avoid it but if i cant sleep i will probably end up eating anything i wish, and i want to end that…. And i dont know what to do…, people tell me to drink water but when the urge comes e just forget about water and my goals for weight loss… Its truly sad i havent found a way to win this thing. I need help and i dont know how to get it…

  • 1st month keto..lost 20 lbs.
    2nd month…gained 18 back
    All because of binge eating. Been struggling with it for 20 yrs:(
    I eat massive quantities of high fat,high calorie, high carb CRAP. I need help.

  • I just watched this about two weeks ago and I have gone 5 days without binging. THANK YOU! Brain over Binge and The Body You Deserve were crucial. It gave me a whole new way to approach the issue. I appreciate it!

  • i just ordered the book!…..i am 65, i have SUFFERED with binge eating since i was 13!………………….wow……i have never given up hope……sure worth a try!

  • The visualization helps a lot, Stefan! Thank you!:D I have no problem with portion control in my big meal, I do need help with snacking habit tho:D I’m gonna use this whenever the craving to snack something unhealthy comes..

  • Great video Stephan! Thank you for sharing your personal story to help others!
    Love Tony’s programs.
    Do you abstain from the tempting foods & leave the foods out of your home? Dr.M

  • OMG. Im sitting here in bed with my 2 dogs and remembering Duffies deep fried cheese cake when you mentioned dog puke and shit. Seriously I laughed so hard I almost spit my coffee out.

  • Exactly the same like what im suffering right now. I compete in bikini competition and i won in that competition then suddenly now i gain more than 20kg than my competition weight. I currently lock myself in my house. I dont want to go out. Soo depressed coz im too ashamed for what happen to me now. Thanks for this.

  • Wow… just what I needed to hear… I used the link for Amazon and ordered the book… will go to Tony Robbins website… thank you very much!

  • My doctor said to me it’s impossible to lose 20-30 lbs, then added… “if you do, you won’t keep it off. I see 15 patients a day and I’m telling you, it’s impossible, unless you’re “highly” motivated. I said, Exactly! His response, “Then let’s go!” Oh, he also said, “Just look at me.” Smh. Any thoughts on this Dr. Marks?

  • Thank you for this video as it really helps me rethink about binge eating and find a way out of it. I’m just so sick of going through the cycle of dieting and binging eating again and again and I want a life where I can eat like a normal person so much. So thank you for this video, really appreciate it.

  • Thank you. I eat based on my emotions and I’m a mindless eater:( I’ve worked on both for a few years but i can’t seem to outgrow.
    Lastly, thank you for the visuals.

  • And yeaaaaaah I hate how when u have a cheat day, my cravings go crazy the next few days, and stress doesnt help at reaaal obviously.

  • She looks great…but im not believing she ran any marathons. Lol may have participated…but runners have a very specific body and if she was doimg all that she would be more toned and im not not buying it. Sorry.

  • I’m depressed a lot. So when I start to go into another cycle, I’m so emotional I can’t eat anything. My stomach hurts and usually I get so upset that I get diarrhea and/or vomit. Which ends up causing me to get dehydrated since I already didn’t have anything in my system. I also have a stomach ulcer and I forget to eat or buy/make food I won’t eat. It’s sick and fucked up but I’m waiting until the next time I get some bad news; I think I’ll just starve myself to death because I’m a coward and I feel like I deserve to suffer. I can’t hide it anymore and I’m just so tired of feeling this way and living like this. I’m so scared and I feel so alone. I just want to go lay down somewhere and just sleep forever because that’s the only time I don’t feel anything.

  • You helped me overcome my video game addiction, and I am so very grateful. I’ve been binge eating for about 4 years, and I’m severely overweight. Though, I’m sure you can help me overcome this too. Thank you so much for your videos. If it weren’t for you, I would be spending the whole summer in my room playing games. Instead, I now find time to learn new things, and spend time with family. But now I’ve just been really insecure about my body and my eating habits… binge eating has a very strong hold on me. But I know I can do this.

  • I just stumbled on your video today after watching a few others on the same topic and I want to say thank you. It was so helpful and very well articulated.

  • You are a legend!! Im watching from the UK, you speak to much truth. I was laughing so hard when you said s#@t

    Thank you for a great watch ❤xxxx

  • I swear to God Abbey, you’re actually amazing. Completing my postgraduate degree in nutrition right now and your content is such an antithesis to the lectures, which can be dull AF and almost drown my passion for the subject. You have such an engaging manner about you and your knowledge shines! Wish I had lecturers like you.

    It’s so refreshing to hear a dietitian speak about food as nourishment for the mind, body, and soul and the importance of not dichotomising foods, leading to all sorts of guilt and disordered eating when people think they’ve ‘failed’.

  • I know I’m not hungry, I know I’m full but I still can’t stop myself when I’m overly anxious / stressed. I’m fully aware of how I feel and what I am doing and what damage I’m doing to my body. I wish I knew how to snap myself out of it.. impulse control, I suppose. It’s funny because for twelve years I starved myself and I did a total 180 after a really bad time / episode.

  • I don’t eat anything until dinner because I’m afraid to accidentally overeat and so if I haven’t eaten anything all day then it’s okay if I accidentally eat too much at dinner

  • Thank you! I actually purchased the brain over binge audiobook a couple years ago and never bothered to finish it. I’m going to go back to it today.

  • This is a amazing video thank you so much for the advice I’m going to apply it. I’ll let you know if I made progress at the end of three months.

  • You helped me overcome my video game addiction, and I am so very grateful. I’ve been binge eating for about 4 years, and I’m severely overweight. Though, I’m sure you can help me overcome this too. Thank you so much for your videos. If it weren’t for you, I would be spending the whole summer in my room playing games. Instead, I now find time to learn new things, and spend time with family. But now I’ve just been really insecure about my body and my eating habits… binge eating has a very strong hold on me. But I know I can do this.

  • Do you think any dieticians work with psychologists? I feel like I need something like that because I have a hard time not finishing food that’s on my plate because of emotional issues, but I’m really not sure how to face that.

  • They should have us3d women as well in the study to observe our “feeble little minds” since they claim its so different in the observable universe.. nonetheless, ive done things like not buy anything enjoyable or that tastes good to the point where i almost dont even keep food around in my home (really). I am just the average size of the women in my country but supposedly id be more healthier if i were “smaller”… it certainly would harbor more unwant3d attention and that is where i get to the point of, do i even care?

  • I’m definitely in the “I hate food” group and sometimes eat till in pain. I’ve been trying to eat without a diet for many years but still struggle with intuitive eating

  • I’d love a video on how to deal with the social or family preassure to eat (or not) certain foods?
    Throw out my life its been a common problem for me to be able to deny to eat foods my parents made or bought for me even tho I don’t really want to eat it in my family they’re specialist in making you feel bad about your food choices.

  • I found this channel kind of recently and I looove your approach:) eating intuitively is something I would really like to adopt and also loosing the food shaming.
    A question I’ve had while watching the videos or just during the day is… How ‘hungry’ must you be for it to be ‘good to eat’? I found the ‘levels of satiety’ very helpful as little questions to ask yourself when you’re eating. So is there hunger levels? And, when should you eat?

    The question comes from here; I can not feel hungry for 8 hours (I’m inventing a number but I mean ‘a long time’) like I’m fine if I don’t eat but ‘I can eat’ and maybe I have this thing I already prepared so I eat, but I reaally wasn’t ‘needing’ the food. I also think I probably shouldn’t let 8 hours pass without eating, it must not be ‘a good thing’…. so maybe I should have waited longer to eat until that ‘feed me anything’ feeling? ��‍♀️��‍♀️��

  • Thank you for sharing this!! Do you have any suggestions for someone that does intuitive eating and also want to exercise to lose fat? of course to get the most of my exercise, that would require eating low carbs but it’s really hard with the intuitive mindset! It would be helpful if you can provide some ideas/suggestions with this. Thank you! <3

  • I used food to help with ADD for a long time. I’d eat until I was nauseous. Then wait until the nausea subsided and then keep eating. It was the only way to focus.

    I am so grateful to medicine for doing that for me now and I am slowly dealing with my old habits of constantly needing something to chew.

  • An Introductory Guide To Ending Emotional Eating Forever

    https://www.jackpotdeals.co/2020/07/an-introductory-guide-to-ending.html?m=1

    Emotional overeating is almost a joke in our society – movies, TV shows, and the resulting stereotypes cause many of us to laugh about how much ice cream it takes to get over a boyfriend, or how much chocolate we need to overcome rejection. But for those who actually suffer from emotional overeating, it’s anything but funny

    This powerful guide will provide you with everything you need to finally overcome this sometimes devastating eating problem.

  • This series is so informative! I used to think intuitive eating was “eating whatever I want in that moment” so I didn’t think it would work, and I feel like a lot of people have this oversimplification stuck in their heads. I think that even though it’s called “intuitive” eating, it’s important to understand that it’s a mindset, a lifestyle even, that you learn and practice every day ❤️

  • Can you review Chloe Ting’s diet? She is a trend right now with all this workout plan situation, a lot of people (including me!) are following her. She’s an exemple of lifestyle but idk….Thankss!!

  • I’m definitely the “numbing” type. Sometimes I binge so bad, I blink and see wrappers everywhere, I don’t even remember eating. And then it’s like I don’t feel anything. Thanks for the video.

  • My sister is a stress eater and she had to diet because her weight was interesting with some medical thing and she quit her job and came home and was trying to stress in and me and the rest of my family looked like bulls in China shops while trying to get the junk food into a room with a lock. I know it sounds mean but it’s better than loseing her. Shes somewhat better now though

  • Can you review Jenn Im what I eat in a week/day videos she has a great diet (in my perspective) and I would like to know your opinion:D

  • there should be more talks about emotional eating as a medical disorder, because so many people are suffering from it without even knowing it///

  • I‘ve never known so much about food as I do now with your help! I am constantly learning, yet I feel more and more at peace with what I put in my mouth! You are truly needed as a spokesperson for treating our bodies with love and acceptance!

  • Hi Abbey! I am wondering if you could please review Adrienne Bailon’s what I eat in a Day. Im pretty sure it should be discussed it is crazy how little she eats and how she copes with food telling her viewers that you eat to live, not for pleasure etc. That is a very unhealthy approach and I feel like your videos help your followers understand what it really means to have a cool relationship with food.
    This video in particular is what pushed me to ask you �� https://youtu.be/80vuxRGDZLY
    Take care!

  • I gained 6 kg over two years eating intuitively, I didn’t binge or eat tons of high calorie foods, took another year with a calorie counting app to get rid of it again. If you’re a regular person, IE might work, my body however only burns 1.800 cals a day with moderate daily exercise but it feels hungry unless it gets 2000. Essentially my body wants to be overweight (I’d be fine as a hunter gatherer moving all day but I have a desk job). My advice would be to check for this before you eat intuitively or you’re in for a boring ass year of counting calories.

  • Hey thanks for another awesome video! And for inspiring me to make my own YouTube channel! Your the best lots of love from Canada ����

  • Amazing!! Thank you for this!! It’s been taking me years to develop a good relationship with food. My only challenges is when I’m menstruating. It’s the devil lol

  • Feel like this was recommended for a reason. I’ve been to so many doctor appointments and psychiatrist without any help. All they say is that I don’t have any problems because at least I eat.
    I eat once a day. I rarely feel hungry but when I force myself to eat I feel sick instead. Sometimes I don’t feel hungry at all for a few days and can go one or two days without eating when I’m not even realizing. I can eat loads when it’s something I enjoy but as soon as it’s something I don’t care for I can barely get past a few bites.
    Does anyone have any tips for me? I know it’s not healthy but the healthcare where I’m from doesn’t take it seriously and it’s getting to the point where my mom sneaks outside the bathroom after every meal trying to figure out if I force the food out or not (which I don’t). I’ve lost so much weight and as I said earlier I get this sick feeling when I force myself to eat

  • Would you be able to do a video on eating healthy while be on corticosteroids since they tend to make you gain weight, also fluid retention. I don’t know if I worded that right but I struggle with eating healthy while being on a bunch of medications. Thank you for your videos, they are very helpful and you are awesome!:)

  • It’s so interesting, l think most food itself is a drug (bad processed foods). If people realize that the bad food is part of the stress, they can avoid it but it’s a commitment just like say quitting smoking….hate to be harsh but it’s the truth.

  • A lot of the differences in how people feel on different macro-nutrient ratios has to do with where their ancestors lived during the time when hunter-gatherers lived. Some of these populations were high fat, some high protein and most higher carb. For example, people in the far north did not/ do not have access naturally to a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables due to short growing seasons.

  • Today I decided to get serious about my strength training. My hip has degenerated a bit since I stopped dancing but my therapist tells me it is all muscle based. Sooo I can improve and get past this pain with some focused exercises.

    So silly me, I go to Pinterest to find beginner work outs and holy cow the diet culture workouts covered with skinny girls all over them are just a lot. Like a lot a lot.

    I don’t want to be thin. I just want to make my aging body stronger so I can avoid pain. Ugh. It’s gonna be a bit harder to wade through the crap.

  • When I ended my 6 year relationship I used to not eat whole day and then eat enormous amount of fast food at night and right after I finish my food I started crying (because i was feeling so guilty about eating that much food and because I tough im going to completely ruin my health because of that way of eating).
    And I couldn’t do anything about it for a year. Basically until i got over that break up. So my advice would be go to therapy deal with your emotions don’t wait for emotions to just go away. Now I cannot imagine eating that much food it makes me sick even thinking about it especially fast greasy food.

  • Hey Abbey thanks for making this video. sorry if the next bit is triggering for anyone.

    I struggle with binge eating tendencies and secret eating (mainly if I have loose change in my purse or I get FOMO). Are there any online resources that you can recommend? I’m trying to combat these issues on my own. I’m based in the UK x

  • When I feel lonely and unworthy, I like to wrap my hands around me and give myself a long hug. Then I tell myself that I love myself and that I am worthy because I am great person. I also like to thank myself for giving my body a great meal and how good it tasted. And while I eat, I often close my eyes to just feel all the flavours and enjoy them.

  • I’ve been struggling so much with trying to get healthier and not gorge my feelings away. This is so helpful and much needed (almost cried to be honest…) No binge cycling. No guilty feelings. Just fueling my body and enjoying the journey.

  • To be honest, I’ve been doing ‘lazy keto’ for few weeks and I allow myself carbs if i crave something so bad (e.g. having ice cream twice a week ). So far, It worked wonders on me as my intuitive eating really showes itself. I feel my insulin levels balanced, because I don’t get that hungry feeling every two minutes.

  • I am so hormonal today and I feel so fat and ugly and it’s absolutely horrible… I don’t know what to do about it either ��
    Edit: Thank you Abbey. I needed this. I cried during half of the video ��✌��

  • Thank you so much. I can feel your words coming from the heart. It’s nice to feel that I’m not alone in my feelings and that I can do this and overcome this eventually. I’m almost at my ideal weight, but this is about the time when I start sabotaging myself, get impatient and mess up.

  • Hi Abby I have a question: My stomach tends not to growl even if I am ravenously hungry. What other hunger cues can I use to determine how hungry I am on the hunger scale?

    Loving these videos, and you’re looking so beautiful!

  • Hi Abbey, I want to thank you for this series. I’m someone who was skeptical of the idea of intuitive eating, but I’ve realized that’s because it was always presented to me as “just listen to your body!” Listening to my body was really hard since I was an overeater as a child, then plummeted into restricting, binging, purging, and over exercising as a teen and young adult. I felt that at my default I was naturally an overeater and that my hunger cues were permanently messed up. You’ve shown me there is a lot more to learning intuitive eating than I thought, and I’ve been able to pull lots of useful info from this series. Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for this video! �� Could you talk about why some people lose their appetite when stressed, and how to deal with it? How to facilitate exercise recovery in this situation?

  • The visualization helps a lot, Stefan! Thank you!:D I have no problem with portion control in my big meal, I do need help with snacking habit tho:D I’m gonna use this whenever the craving to snack something unhealthy comes..

  • I have weird relationship with food since i was child. Im not obsessed for being thin but i also dont like food im very picky but im scared of fainting since i dont eat a lot and that creates anxiety and then i have upset stomach wich leads to not eating anything so basically for a year now im dealing with constant cycle. I dont know what to do i have been trying to find disorder similar to mine but still no luck. Should i just go to therapy?

  • What about the type of emotional eating that involves almost complete cessation of eating because some emotions or circumstances make some people lose their appetite? For example, the “heartbreak diet”, or losing a job and only thinking about paying your bills/regaining employment rather than noticing hunger? Or when depression, mania, or anxiety in general causes a lack of appetite?

  • Can you please film a reaction to Grimes What I eat in a day pregnant video? The one that Harper’s Bazaar posted on their channel. Would be quite interesting to see a dietitians view on the way she eats �� Love your videos ❤️

  • idk if i do have ED but can someone tell me what type i would fall into? i am always anxious of eating even when i am alone because i am scared that i will gain weight. i eat only one meal a day

  • abbey can you talk about Phytoestrogen foods? how does this work? does this actually work? and what to have and what to avoid? and when? if you want to raise your estrogen levels, for examle. would love to hear more about foods that can potentially influence your hormones in a positive or negative way. i think this would make a great topic for a video and very informative.

  • I can relate to her story cause I lost my mom and food was my comforter. I developed diabetes, gained so much weight and now I’m trying to reverse it.

  • Today.. I watched this video and bought the ebook version of the book you mentioned, straight away..

    I was reading for like hours, halfway done now, and I’m just really excited to start…

    So within about two weeks I will be able to tell if it works for me as well.. (One whole week without bingeing is like a record, so two of them to make sure I’m not dreaming)..

    Maby I can cancel my treatment which would start in March.

    Thrilled.

    Have a nice weekend you all. Hopefully with lots of new energy and optimistic feelings.

  • Duuu the example of the dog peeuking all over your favorite food is soo powefull!!! Im soo disgusted by it i ll definetely keep using thank you soo much!!

  • I know I’m not hungry, I know I’m full but I still can’t stop myself when I’m overly anxious / stressed. I’m fully aware of how I feel and what I am doing and what damage I’m doing to my body. I wish I knew how to snap myself out of it.. impulse control, I suppose. It’s funny because for twelve years I starved myself and I did a total 180 after a really bad time / episode.

  • When I was younger I was considered “fat” and it was true I was overweight when I was younger, and people bullied me for it. At the time I didn’t think I cared but slowly throughout 3 years I started caring more and more, and I lost most of the weight after about a year when I was fat, but I was still a little big, but considered a normal weight through about 2 years after that. Then it started the summer of going into middle school. I started not eating all day and just being on my phone in my room all day everyday. I lost about 6 pounds doing that and got down to about 95 pounds, and I was about 5’1 then. Then middle school started and I started skipping lunch and eating almost nothing for breakfast and my parents thought I was eating lunch, so the only thing I had was dinner a lot of times. And I thought I ate a lot at that time and I thought I was really fat even though I was considered “anorexic” and I was underweight a lot. Anyways I got down to about 93 pounds at 5’2 in December 2019. Everyone was always telling me how skinny I was and I still thought I was really fat and I think I had body dysmorphia. And even my doctor said if I didn’t stop my liver could fail. I didn’t want to stop, but then came along coronavirus, and then came along not being at school, which meant no skipping lunch. And my parents made me eat everyday. So then I got to about 100 pounds at 5’2 and i still wasn’t completely heathy at that weight, and then I got to 103 pounds, and now I’m at 106 pounds at 5’2 and people still say I’m really skinny but that I look healthy, and I’m super close to the underweight section but I’m in the normal weight section and I’m proud that I made it. I still am aware that I have body dysmorphia, but I think I’m getting better… but the past few days I haven’t been eating and Im getting used to hunger pains again. Part of me still wants to be 93 pounds again, and idk what to do.

  • please do jaclyn forbes!! she’s a gret vegan make up influencer who does a lot of “what i eat in a day” videos and believes in intuitive eating, i’d love to hear your opinions on her

  • I want to intuitively eat these foods that I used to emotionally eat like crisps and other snacks and be able to just stop when I’m full but they honestly don’t fill me up much and I end up eating the whole bag anyway to get full. How do you balance this? If I eat the whole bag because I wasn’t full only eating the serving size or half of the bag then I’ll still feel like I ‘failed’ at intuitive eating even tho I just ate what I was craving when I was hungry. I find it difficult to fit these very high calorie foods into my life and eat them intuitively without eating ‘too many’ because they just don’t fill me up but they’re still really tasty and I do want to eat them sometimes lol.

  • I eat 2200 kcals a day, am around 59 kg and around 170cm and I just stay the same (quite athletic). I have tried to track kcals but it made me obsessive so now I just eat intuively and it’s honestly a life saver. Accepting your body isn’t something you’ll do by changing it, it’s something mentally. Stop your unhealthy behaviour, start listening to your body, giving it enough healthy nutrients and start with your mind, seek professional help if you need to. Acknowledge what’s going on with you and know what it truly is that you and your body need to live happily and healthy and maintain that way. Don’t follow diets, create a healthy lifestyle that you can see yourself doing your entire life. Eating chocolate everyday but still losing weight? Yeah very possible. It’s all about balance, but in order for you to achieve that you gotta start with your mindset.

  • Abbey I can’t thank you enough. I’ve had an unhealthy relationship with food my entire life and I never even considered making peace with it until I started watching your videos. I really thought the only two approaches someone could have towards food were either starving or overeating. I’m trying really hard to get out of those toxic mindset that brought me so much guilt and unhappiness. You made me want to be kinder to myself and I never thought that could have been possible until I started watching your videos. My goal now is to reach a point when food doesn’t control my life anymore and doesn’t occupy so much of my thoughts, and I can’t wait to get there.

  • Ok, she eats less of several things. She runs. She writes. What does she do when she needs to handle emotional eating with food?

  • Hi Abbey! Thank you so much for all the amazing content you put out on your channel. You’ve made a very positive influence on my eating habits:) I was wondering if you might be interested in discussing the correlation between poor gut or micro-biome health and obesity/ weight gain (especially with respect to a highly processed diet). Maybe you could also discuss ways to promote gut health for weight loss? There seems to be a lot of compelling but pre-mature research on the topic that I would love to hear your thoughts on:)

  • I literally did the same thing, i got to one point where i don’t recognize me anymore, thank you for filming this you are helping me so much ❤

  • When I was already on the thinner side and about to start Vyvanse for ADHD, my doctor told me to drop the carbs because you need to keep the weight on. So many protein shakes. And sad burgers without a bun. If it wasn’t calorically and nutrient dense, I wasn’t allowed it, because the meds annihilated my appetite and they didn’t want me to drop too much weight. I can confirm the intense cravings for fruit.

    Then I got a bad concussion, had to go off those meds so I could be more relaxed during recovery, gained 80 pounds, and was allowed carbs/low calorie foods again. Sweet, sweet watermelon! It was almost worth it, just to be allowed a more relaxed diet.

  • In my experience, the most effective and direct way to get in tune with your emotions is meditation. By slowing down thoughts and creating the necessary space in your mind, the repressed emotions can come to the surface and you can fully experience them. Negative emotions only go away when we allow ourselves to feel them wholly and completely. Otherwise, they just become repressed deeper within us, which is usually when we try to find outside sources (food, alcohol, drugs, etc) to either numb or distract.

  • There was a time that I couldn’t stop eating and what worked for me was eating by schedule. Breakfast at 7 AM, lunch at 12:30 PM and dinner at 7 PM. One snack at 9:30 AM and one 3:30. That was all. No matter what I felt, I only ate on these specific moments. If I felt “hunger” in between I repeated to my self many times “I know this is not real hunger”.

  • Hi everybody. I used to be a emotional eater. I struggled with binge eating, carb addiction, extreme weight gain, weight loss. I know it is very hard to get rid of it. Now i can fix it 90%. There are some tip i want to share:
    1) i talk to myself: you are able to eat everything you want. When my mind feel free to eat, i craving food less. Then i reduce the bad food, bad carb slowly.
    2) i accept, admit that i am craving, im a carb addiction. I relize that we can not lie our body. Let say the truth and brave to get rid of.
    3) when i want to eat more, i wait 30 minute more. In that time, i do something else and i relize that i didnt crave food anymore
    4) i learn to cook. I cook new food, eat healthy as much as i can and feel very good.
    Sorry for my bad english:))
    I want to contact with people to help them get rid of this monster and also want to improve my english. You can share with me and me can find solution together. This is my SKYPE account: live:hanhvuong283

  • My doctor said to me it’s impossible to lose 20-30 lbs, then added… “if you do, you won’t keep it off. I see 15 patients a day and I’m telling you, it’s impossible, unless you’re “highly” motivated. I said, Exactly! His response, “Then let’s go!” Oh, he also said, “Just look at me.” Smh. Any thoughts on this Dr. Marks?

  • They should have us3d women as well in the study to observe our “feeble little minds” since they claim its so different in the observable universe.. nonetheless, ive done things like not buy anything enjoyable or that tastes good to the point where i almost dont even keep food around in my home (really). I am just the average size of the women in my country but supposedly id be more healthier if i were “smaller”… it certainly would harbor more unwant3d attention and that is where i get to the point of, do i even care?

  • I don’t necessarily binge but i make myself throw up a lot because i want to lose weight. is this still bulimia or is there another name for that? i am working on this myself and i’m doing that a lot less, but no one knows about it and i feel lonely with it

  • Thank you for sharing this video! I have acquired both resources that you recommended and began applying your advice immediately. The effects are already showing, and I’m deeply grateful. All the best! ����

  • I have 2 questions regarding intuitive eating: 1. I have quite bad reflux and some other digestive issues, this causes a hollow/rumbly feeling that often feels like hunger, I find it very difficult to have to ignore these feelings and it doesn’t feel very intuitive, but sometimes I feel very “hungry” right after eating and i feel even more stomach pain after eating something. So I’m not sure what to do. 2. I sometimes goes through periods where I’m very ill the the past I’ve lost a lot of weight in a short period of time (without wanting to) so often i had to force myself to eat just to maintain weight even though I didn’t feel any hunger, this also doesn’t feel very intuitive but I sort of have to do it. Overall I love the intuitive eating method and I’ve been trying it for a while but struggle with these 2 things 😉 thank you for making these videos!

  • I battle with emotional eating and it has caused me to gain alot of weight, but I lost nearly 30 pounds since last summer from eating healthy.

  • I dont have a disorder… just a really slow metabolism. I dont eat much and I gain weight very easily, like if some day I eat fast food I’ll gain like 2kg (even if I dont eat anything else)

  • Thank you for sharing this video! I have acquired both resources that you recommended and began applying your advice immediately. The effects are already showing, and I’m deeply grateful. All the best! ����

  • For me personally its a mix of eating small and throwing it up afterwards but then i occasionally binge when im forced to eat and then throw it up not sure what to call that but im trying to get better

  • lately I’ve just been getting less and less uninterested in food. like I still eat but I don’t feel hungry or eat that much anymore. I mainly only feel kind of hungry in the morning and only eat after that to make shre my mom knows I’m not starving myself.

  • I don’t know if it’s an eating disorder, but I’ll just write what’s happening to me. I just don’t want to eat all day and I feel like vomiting when I see food. I exercise until I lose my balance. However, when the evening comes I start to overeat and give up, stop exercising, and cry because I gave up, take laxatives and go to sleep and the next day again…

  • Can someone plz help me? I starve myself to lose weight. And I watch Ed and anorexia films every night. I’m constantly looking at thinspo to make sure I don’t eat. Wen I want to eat I write down a bunch of times telling myself not to. I binge. And after I eat I regret it and try to throw it up. And I’m to scared to tell anybody because they won’t understand. Am I developing anorexia? Am i anorexic? Do I have a eating disorder?

  • I never know whether I’m normal or have a mild case of bing eating disorder. I don’t really eat massive amounts of food in one short period, but I eat so much food throughout the day and I can’t control it, the only way I can control it is not eating at all that day. Many times I’ve tried to just eat three meals and some small snacks like a normal person but I’ve never been able to do this for more than a few days because eating is always on my mind and I end up giving in. I’m relatively skinny but I never put on weight I eat such a massive amount of food each day and am not in control of how much I eat, I’m not sure if it’s just me overreacting, or I for some reason need heaps more food than the average person, but I really struggle with food and I don’t know if it’s a normal thing anymore?? This has been about 2 years like this now

  • I used to have very hard eating disorders when growing up, at about 16-17 y.o., I would eat very low amounts of food, feel very depressed and not good enough, I also used to vomit as a way to punish myself from eating… It’s a horrible thing to have:(

  • my little thing is, i have “the meal of the day” which is the only meal i eat. and i usually still am hungry but im like “no! no more food ��” and ive fainted multiple times because of it but i just want to be skinny✨

  • i just ordered the book!…..i am 65, i have SUFFERED with binge eating since i was 13!………………….wow……i have never given up hope……sure worth a try!

  • Anything I eat makes me gain weight and it hurts because its been like this even before I got my period but when I was 9 and got my period it just started getting worse I would eat normally every day and not much fast food on the weekends but gain alot of weight but then I started eating just because it made me distract my selve but now I’m becoming self conscious about my body and now matter how mich I cut on my foods I can’t seem to lose weight I even try to excercise but I just can’t I don’t like being ugly and am always jealous of my only friend who eats fast food almost every day and eats unhealthy and watches YouTube all day still is super skinny

  • i have bulimia nervosa. this is the very first time i’m admitting it. i just tell myself “hey, you gotta do it, it’s not that bad, come on don’t be a baby about it” i’m not sure what to do

  • Hi Abbey, I’ve found that your video volume tends to be low (this has something I’ve noticed for awhile, not just this video). I was wondering if there was a way your editor could fix this?

  • 1st of all im so sorry for my bad english ��, oke so here, i kinda didnt realize it at first but i started to feel dissapointed of my self whenever i eat (wether it’s healthy of unhealthy food) which causing me hurting my self sometimes (such as slapping or hitting my body), but idk why i guess it’s getting worse these days, whenever i eat i would feel so sad and yesterday i was crying mess, trembling and my heart kindly beating so fast i was so afraid to put those food in my mouth, my friend told me to eat, and i tried but guess what every time i heard those “just eat, try to eat, eat, food” words, i strarted to afraid i can even crying in front of them, im not really sure wether it could be categorize as eating dissorders or not cuz im just too afraid to go to doctor, so please anyone if guys understand what am i goin trough here, tell me please and tell me what should i do

    Thanks a lot ����

  • I just don’t feel hungry at all, I was hoping there would be something in this video that could explain why but it’s okay. I don’t starve myself on purpose, it’s just that i don’t ever feel hungry and when i try to eat when i’m not hungry, I gag and almost throw up. Is it a mental thing wrong with me or a physical thing?

  • For me, a restrictive diet is intuitive eating if one believes that intuitive eating is eating what makes you feel good, satieted and happy. I don’t have a gallbladder, and my body never adjusted to digesting fat, so I find myself with insane heart burn and indigestion to the point where I’m in tears on my bathroom floor when I eat it. So, intuitively, I just restrict fat as much as I can. Why would I choose ice cream and then throw away the rest of my day because I can’t do anything due to pain, when I can just track my macros and choose an apple instead? It’s not that I don’t want the ice cream, I still have cravings, it’s that I know self control is the best way to love my body by not subjecting it to having to digest a food group it literally can’t.

    I’m sure there are others with allergies, intolerances or health conditions who understand what I mean.

  • I have the first eating disorder I don’t eat anything except for dinner I’ve had the same body for 12 years which is about to be 13 so I don’t eat food or drink water during the day I work outdoors with my mom I stopped eating cus I’m never hungry I just want to be fat anymore every one judges me because of my body which I HATE I’m also overweight for my age I’m just 12 I hate my body and how I look….

  • For those who is still on their way to burn their fat with pills, crazy diets and exercises. That woman has given tip me how to burn fat quick still eating my favourite morning donuts. Watch that short video here NODIET. XCOURSE. XYZ (without spaces) to know how!

  • I always feel nauseated when I think about food ����
    I really hate food and I’m always forced to eat food because they think I’m anorexic which is not true I just hate food I don’t know if I should visit a clinic

  • OMG. Im sitting here in bed with my 2 dogs and remembering Duffies deep fried cheese cake when you mentioned dog puke and shit. Seriously I laughed so hard I almost spit my coffee out.

  • This video came in right when i really needed it I’ve been emotionally eating to the point where I feel numb everyday bcz I didn’t want to face the reality of my problems so thank you

  • Wow… just what I needed to hear… I used the link for Amazon and ordered the book… will go to Tony Robbins website… thank you very much!

  • This is my problem –

    So I have 6 siblings and 5 of them weigh more than me, the other one definitely has an eating disorder (my mom doesn’t think so even though she only eats 1s a day and that’s something small) but I might have one too.. because I’m skinnier they always make fun of me because of my body (and not to forget my height too because I’m the smallest 5’3) but when they say things like that I just don’t want to eat. One of my sisters said “omg ur eating too much! No one else will be able to eat now!!” Though I ate nothing that day so I stopped eating it because I felt bad.. also I drink lemon diet tea (because lemon is my fav uwu) but they always say that I’m on a diet and that I’m starving and that I should eat more and then I never get out my bed to eat. I mean I already have a self harm scar on my arm because of them. But yeah they are the reason I don’t eat at all only when I feel comfortable.

  • My problem is that when I’m out with friends and we have food in front of us, I can’t think of anything else but the food (even though I’m not hungry and I don’t really want to eat it). I can’t stop thinking about it until I either eat it all or the waiter comes to take it away. I can’t focus on what my friends are talking about because I keep waiting for someone to finish the plates so that I don’t have to. What can I do about this?:(

  • WE are all on a journey. One step in front of the other with positive selflove. When we compare ourselves to others it is easy to become discouraged. I still sometimes have a hard time loving myself, but kind words help. ❤

  • I just stumbled on your video today after watching a few others on the same topic and I want to say thank you. It was so helpful and very well articulated.

  • I am a 13 year old. Lately since the start of quarantine I started noticing changes in my body which I didn’t like at all, it wasn’t puberty, I just I see myself being a little over the line and chubby. My 16 year old sister has a beautiful body and loves eating high calorie foods but her body never shows changes “consequences” even though she dose not do much exercise. Then I watched a movie called “to the bone” which made me reconsider many things in myself and after that I started learning tricks on how to burn the calories I ate, that is when it started. I count them, I do lots of exercises sometimes more than needed, drink water inexplicably and purge 1 or 2 times a day. The thing is, I know i’m still a kid and you could probably think that kids don’t feel that or do that to their bodies. But I find it so necessary, I want to be beautiful like my sister.

  • I thought I was fine but now I’m not so sure. I think I’m still binge eating and I want to stop but it’s really hard. I don’t even care if I look “fat” (unless I’m actually overweight) because I’ve grown to accept all sizes. but I keep eating even when I’m uncomfortably full. I just feel like I need to. even when I know deep down that I don’t need to eat any more.

  • I had a period of bulimia in my life but no one knew and I didn’t tell anyone at that time. I would try to puke or chew my food but spit it out instead of swallowing it so I wouldn’t gain weight (idk if that’s a disorder too)
    It’s over now fortunately but recently I tried to talk about this problem I had and I wasn’t taking seriously. No one believed it to be true and thought I’m joking or smth bc I wasn’t underweight or bc I didn’t let anyone notice it. It’s just sad.. when they laughed I tried to laugh too even though it’s not a laughing matter.

  • 2014-2018 i ate around 200-400 calories a day. These last couple years I’ve been recovering, but recently I’ve relapsed into a lot of my old eating habits. Its a journey, a cycle, its hard

  • I’m now in eating disorder journey, i had depression and i felt so empty, i get out of bed go eat something unhealthy then come back to my bed that how my days go day by day i get fatter then I traveled to my hometown with my family, my mental health is so much better but the thing is I’m fat so I decided to not eat like literally one meal per day I’ve been like that for a month now and I’m back in my house and my mental health is the kinda good? Idk but I’m gonna do that diet until I’m happier with my body ( I’m not that fat but I’m fatter than before) I’m sorry that was long but I wanted to open up to you

  • What age are these men? What are their jobs? Are they single or married? Do the men have child/children? Many reasons for a person to be stressed.

  • The people at my school stress me and I’m scared to eat in front of people so I don’t eat lunch at school but I have never snd will never claim I have a eating disorder

  • Not only obese or overweight people have Binge eating disorder, it’s a very stereotypical view on the matter I’m a healthy weight and look healthy also but I struggle immensely with this disorder

  • Can you do a video or many more on alcohol? On a Friday or Saturday night, I often cannot stop at a cocktail and it is the biggest barrier to my fitness goals. Alcohol obviously has nothing to do with hunger cues. Yeah, I use it to relax after a long week. Oh and in socializing with other moms, wine is big…

  • I have bulimia since 3 years and I am so happy about this video because this topic is kind of tabu in our society…even my parents don’t know about my eating disorder

  • oh. i didn’t know i have an eating disorder. i thought it was only anorexia or bulimia, being obsessed with your weight and looks. but I think I have the first one

  • I used to struggle heavily with binge eating and still kind of do, and I just had everyone kind of screaming at me the whole way through, like to the point where ive gotten threatened to be kicked out bc of my weight gain. when I was younger I did a lot of sports so I didn’t gain weight that much but I was fucking miserable and had to unlearn my coping mechanisms and learn how to eat healthy and get into new hobbies so i could maintain my eating schedule, I’m 18 and I’m just able to wake up whenever and still enough so I feel okay about myself throughout the day

  • What age are these men? What are their jobs? Are they single or married? Do the men have child/children? Many reasons for a person to be stressed.

  • i eat but then i feel disgusted of myself, then i look in the mirror, check my weight average for my hight, eating less, then eating more the next day, its a seesaw of emotions flooding me, im not skinny enough, damn i look good, dont eat today, have a snack, feel guilty, be nothing…be more than nothing (all of my thoughts)

  • i was diagnosed w. hybrid BED and anorexia 5 yrs ago. maybe i’ve been lazy with my research, but i don’t have much info about it aside from what my dr. told me.

  • When I eat, I’m out of control. I don’t breathe when I eat. I shovel it all in my mouth without waiting. All I can think about is eat eat eat. Even when I’m not that hungry. And when I’m finished, I still want more. Even when I feel full, I can’t stop eating.

  • i think i had binge eating disorder but idk. someone help me out. last year and 6th grade i was super sad and had family issues with my dad and didn’t have many school friends. when i got home from school and take a bunch of food to my room and eat them. afterwards i’d feel gross and disgusted with myself. but i would continue to do it everyday for months

  • Hi Abbey!! I’m wondering if you’d be interested in doing a vid on Jason Fung’s work with intermittent fasting, as well as the clinical work he’s done to help T2D patients. Thanks!

  • Is this an eating disorder: only eats cakes or pastry’s for breakfast or lunch but then eats a dangerously small (half a sausage) amount of food for other meals. Just wondering and if it is please can u tell me what it’s called x

  • I always avoid eating lunch and dinner I only eat one meal a day even tho I’m skinny I weight 45kg. i hate eating too much bc I’m scared to get fat so I only eat one thing a day then sleep all day and when im awake I’ll only drink water n green tea. I hate meat I hate chicken I hate seafood im very very picky so I don’t know if I have an eating disorder or not can someone help me with info or smth?

  • Everything you mentioned in this video is EXACTLY what I’m going through at the moment… I’m looking forward to reading that book thank you so much.

  • Idk whether you can call me disordered eating habits an actual eating disorder, as my lack of appetite is more of a symptom of my anxiety than an ED. There was a time where I was really underweight and everyone thought I was anorexic, but i knew I was underweight (maybe not to the extent I can see now that I am at a better weight but I still recognised it). I never had an extremely negative image of my body, I always thought and still think I look too skinny but my anxiety makes me lose my appetite. Idk know if this counts as an eating disorder tho…

  • I have the binge eating disorder for over a year now…At first I would eat without being hungry or eat more than I needed and even tho I felt full I would just keep on eating now I eat so much.Now my brain says that I need more food than I actually need and I’m always hungry.My parents won’t let me see a doctor because they won’t take me seriously about it please help me.

  • I starve myself and I have an atypical case of bulimia. I do not binge. However, I am overweight, and people don’t take me seriously when I tell them simply because I am not skinny. The first thing they think when I say I have an eating disorder is binge eating

  • I’m this way but I don’t have a reason I just think I’m hungry then I’m actually full then I feel guilty for eating when I wasn’t hungry and I eat more and so one and so fourth

  • An Introductory Guide To Ending Emotional Eating Forever

    Emotional overeating is almost a joke in our society – movies, TV shows, and the resulting stereotypes cause many of us to laugh about how much ice cream it takes to get over a boyfriend, or how much chocolate we need to overcome rejection. But for those who actually suffer from emotional overeating, it’s anything but funny

    This powerful guide will provide you with everything you need to finally overcome this sometimes devastating eating problem.

  • no one takes binge eating disorder as serious as stuff like anorexia or bulimia, i don’t have it but i have disordered behaviour (meaning i’m not diagnosed) i feel sorry for people who end up feeling invalidated because of it, you shouldn’t since everyone deserves the same help regardless of severity or type of ED:)

  • Doktor Öz çok iyisiniz sizin gibi saygın Türklerin böyle güzel yerlere gelmesi Türkiye’nin gurur kaynağı yapıyor sizi. Also thank you so much for sharing her story. It inspired a lot of people. Including myself.

  • Ok, she eats less of several things. She runs. She writes. What does she do when she needs to handle emotional eating with food?

  • Wow what you have gone through are the same with what I’m going trough right now. I must buy that book ASAP, I want to get out from this binge-circle once and for all! Thanks for sharing!

  • Hey is it normal to have 4 styles of eating that you rotate between? I rarely eat normally but I get episodes of both binging and episodes of starvation. I also eat emotionally but I do have episodes where I ONLY eat when I’m sad or anxiety plays up.

  • I was wondering if you are going to address how your “dietitian reviews” videos are harmful to your viewers? I understand calling people out maybe for preaching fad diets….but analyzing what people eat not only publicly shamed people’s diet choices but also, as a viewer, can foster unhealthy relationships with food. As a teenager I used to look up to these videos…but as I got older I realized how toxic it made me look at and over analyze what I ate therefore causing me to not eat intuitively (as you so preach). There has to be a better way for you, a dietitian, who knows that many people are triggered by the type of discourse you put out there to spread your valuable information in a safe way.

  • Hey thanks for another awesome video! And for inspiring me to make my own YouTube channel! Your the best lots of love from Canada ����

  • The social life around me now is that people go mad with losing weight and some of them even refuse to eat just because they want to be skinny. I suffered from emotional eating too and after that I felt Guilty, but now I know how important it is to make friends with food and every food is valuable, and what determines your health is how you going to choose the food you ACTUALLY need. This intuitive eating helped alot and I just want to express my appreciation here. It’s a long journey but I will stick to it ��

  • Everyday Dr. OZ has the things on his show Sometimes this happens with women hormones get out of wrack in older women like my self be blessed in your lifetime

  • Hey is it normal to have 4 styles of eating that you rotate between? I rarely eat normally but I get episodes of both binging and episodes of starvation. I also eat emotionally but I do have episodes where I ONLY eat when I’m sad or anxiety plays up.

  • She looks great…but im not believing she ran any marathons. Lol may have participated…but runners have a very specific body and if she was doimg all that she would be more toned and im not not buying it. Sorry.

  • Thank you! I actually purchased the brain over binge audiobook a couple years ago and never bothered to finish it. I’m going to go back to it today.

  • You released this video the same day I came to the realization I prefer low carb/ high fat. I’m making breast milk which is mostly composed of fat. This is why I crave so much of it. If I eat too many carbs I crash so hard at the end of the day.

  • Oh yes because men are never stressed out. Tired of the martyr women out there thinking their husbands are having a spa vacation every day in the office with long commutes bad bosses demanding clients hostile coworkers and the pressure of being a breadwinner. But oh how dare they feel stressed!

  • This helped me identify the reason behind my relapse. Gonna put on some good ol’ Michael Sealey tonight and hopefully wake up motivated to face my struggles head on in the morning

  • I cannot believe how moved I am by a video about eating habits. Your funny and compassionate way of educating about intuitive eating has changed my life and makes me want to be a dietician. Thank you so much!

  • This is the truest video about binge eating… Unfortunately it’s soo sad �� I used to intermittent fasting eating healthy.. Then I went on a water fast.. While refeeding hell broke loose and am eating uncontrollably.. I can’t even intermittent fast as I used to..

  • Duuu the example of the dog peeuking all over your favorite food is soo powefull!!! Im soo disgusted by it i ll definetely keep using thank you soo much!!

  • man I’ve never related more. same boat loads of fitness, nutrition, mindfulness knowledge, diets etc etc but on the binge and this niggling feeling that I need to get out this cycle and make changes.
    thank you so much for spending your time and effort to make this video

  • I’m so glad I finally realized what I’m doing wrong. Im also happy to see that even “skinny” people have this problem. I would literally just binge on anything. I have eaten a whole sleeve of bread before because I just couldn’t stop myself. ❤ thank you

  • I ate when there negative comments, I live with a VERY negative mother. I got lots of negative feed back for being over weight. I then binged and purged by 16. I stopped when I had kids.
    I married, had kids and stayed overweight. My top weight was310lbs.
    Had weight loss surgery, then began eating and bingeing to cope since I could not just eat emotionally. Crazy how old behaviours come back.
    A year with BANA (bulimia anorexia nervosa association) and the help of a psychiatrist who diagnose me properly, (bipolar type 2). Medication helps but CBT help me a lot.
    This is a great straightforward explanation I can share with friends I have met with similar issues. Thanks so much.

  • I don’t have a eating disorder…but I eat my breakfast which is 2 brown slices of toast that is 120 calories, then I go on my stationary bike and burn off roughly 300 calories..then eat my lunch at like 12:15pm, an apple, 54 calories I think apples are? Idk and I wait for like 5 hours and I’m STARVING my stomach is rumbling.. for dinner I would take soup or pasta..

  • I’m so glad I finally realized what I’m doing wrong. Im also happy to see that even “skinny” people have this problem. I would literally just binge on anything. I have eaten a whole sleeve of bread before because I just couldn’t stop myself. ❤ thank you

  • Now when people ask me if I have an eating disorder, I can tell them that I don’t have any of these even if there was one very similar to me in this.

  • Love this! Perfect timing during quarantine �� would you consider doing a video on the sirtfood diet? I’ve been hearing about Adele using the diet to lose weight, but when I looked it up it was advertised as “turning on your skinny gene” which is just….so problematic?? Thanks for the great content!

  • Great video Stephan! Thank you for sharing your personal story to help others!
    Love Tony’s programs.
    Do you abstain from the tempting foods & leave the foods out of your home? Dr.M

  • You are a legend!! Im watching from the UK, you speak to much truth. I was laughing so hard when you said s#@t

    Thank you for a great watch ❤xxxx

  • I literally did the same thing, i got to one point where i don’t recognize me anymore, thank you for filming this you are helping me so much ❤

  • People say for my age that 1400 calories are the norm, but I’ve been eating about 900 or less during daytime. And I look and act fine, but I stress about my calories and hate myself, it’s gotten so out of control. Yet some days I’ll eat little to nothing, then I’ll go some days, even a week, where I’m constantly eating without thinking, and then feeling absolutely horrible.
    Eating disorders are so, so hard and people need o understand that just because people don’t look like they have one, doesn’t mean they’re lying when they’re clearly trying to tell you they are. ( talkin’ to you, parents. mine went months before realizing )

  • Woah! That cookie I was dreaming of made me salivate and then he said my pet puked on it and I’m so grossed out I gagged. haha that’s good stuff

  • Thank you for this video as it really helps me rethink about binge eating and find a way out of it. I’m just so sick of going through the cycle of dieting and binging eating again and again and I want a life where I can eat like a normal person so much. So thank you for this video, really appreciate it.

  • Wow what you have gone through are the same with what I’m going trough right now. I must buy that book ASAP, I want to get out from this binge-circle once and for all! Thanks for sharing!

  • I battle with emotional eating and it has caused me to gain alot of weight, but I lost nearly 30 pounds since last summer from eating healthy.

  • I’ve been intermittent fasting for almost a year and clean keto for a few months. Lost 20 lbs. All of a sudden, I started binge eating a couple weeks ago, but still clean keto. Binging on fat. Need to figure out how to stop it before I gain fat back and binging becomes an addiction

  • I just watched this about two weeks ago and I have gone 5 days without binging. THANK YOU! Brain over Binge and The Body You Deserve were crucial. It gave me a whole new way to approach the issue. I appreciate it!

  • For those who is still on their way to burn their fat with pills, crazy diets and exercises. That woman has given tip me how to burn fat quick still eating my favourite morning donuts. Watch that short video here NODIET. XCOURSE. XYZ (without spaces) to know how!

  • Today.. I watched this video and bought the ebook version of the book you mentioned, straight away..

    I was reading for like hours, halfway done now, and I’m just really excited to start…

    So within about two weeks I will be able to tell if it works for me as well.. (One whole week without bingeing is like a record, so two of them to make sure I’m not dreaming)..

    Maby I can cancel my treatment which would start in March.

    Thrilled.

    Have a nice weekend you all. Hopefully with lots of new energy and optimistic feelings.

  • Eating to neutralize your emotions is normal till it doesn’t change to get sick and uncomfortably full. But even if it happened you just should get over.

  • Everything you mentioned in this video is EXACTLY what I’m going through at the moment… I’m looking forward to reading that book thank you so much.

  • Hey Abbey! I’ve been getting a lot of ads for a product that’s supposed to “stop sugar cravings” but making sweet things taste bad. They not only seem like a giant scam but a very unhealthy way to think about food. Just thought that might be something you might think about talking about!

  • This is a amazing video thank you so much for the advice I’m going to apply it. I’ll let you know if I made progress at the end of three months.

  • Literally when she said to ask yourself “why am I eating this right now?” I’m polishing off a slice of triple chocolate cheesecake �� So I told myself it’s from my birthday this week, Aunt Flo is in town, and work sucks today so I DESERVE this!

  • Hi Dr. Tracey, as a recovering binge eater, I greatly appreciate your video on that. I’ve done the work, so the binge eating part of me is pretty dormant. Now, I’m noticing that I emotionally eat. Especially during quarantine watching movies. Listening to this video I realized that I eat with a distractionusually a movie, series, YouTube video or call. I think I’m over eating alone. It must be subconscious. I live alone and I am single (not at all upset about it), but I guess I’ve trained myself now that while I’m watching a movie at night I need popcorn or chocolate and that’s when I get mad at how much I eat while I’m not hungry. How can I break the association of movie and food? And how can I feel less awkward eating alone in silence every day so I can be more mindful?

  • Hi everybody. I used to be a emotional eater. I struggled with binge eating, carb addiction, extreme weight gain, weight loss. I know it is very hard to get rid of it. Now i can fix it 90%. There are some tip i want to share:
    1) i talk to myself: you are able to eat everything you want. When my mind feel free to eat, i craving food less. Then i reduce the bad food, bad carb slowly.
    2) i accept, admit that i am craving, im a carb addiction. I relize that we can not lie our body. Let say the truth and brave to get rid of.
    3) when i want to eat more, i wait 30 minute more. In that time, i do something else and i relize that i didnt crave food anymore
    4) i learn to cook. I cook new food, eat healthy as much as i can and feel very good.
    Sorry for my bad english:))
    I want to contact with people to help them get rid of this monster and also want to improve my english. You can share with me and me can find solution together. This is my SKYPE account: live:hanhvuong283

  • Thank you Abbey for this video. I needed it so badly. This crazy times are making me cope with food and I am not feeling my best. I was able to manage my ED in the past thanks to therapy and I haven’t felt the need to purge in a long time, but I am binging a lot through quarantine and it scares me to trigger my ED again. So I needed this a lot. Thank you so much

  • Thank you. I eat based on my emotions and I’m a mindless eater:( I’ve worked on both for a few years but i can’t seem to outgrow.
    Lastly, thank you for the visuals.

  • And yeaaaaaah I hate how when u have a cheat day, my cravings go crazy the next few days, and stress doesnt help at reaaal obviously.
