  • I always admire that ”big girl” confidence because I don’t have it. I see how wonderful and beautiful this woman is and I’m like ”Why don’t I have that?”. I’m not happy with myself. Haven’t been for as long as I can remember. So I admire her confidence. Ms. Morris is Awesome ����✨. Her personality alone made me love her within a few seconds of listening to her not to mention she is beautiful.

    edit: 6:50

  • replace snacking foods with other things you can do with your fingers such as:
    puzzles
    phone games
    evaluate your life; are you feeling stimulated?
    extracurricular activities are important

    BABY STEPS
    1. replace snacking foods with other finger activities
    2. evaluate your life

  • I’m sorry but did he ask her if she ”licks the plate also?” That was a bit bitchy. Why are skinny people on this show so damn mean? I won’t lie, I knew by his demeanor how he was going to be. Smh ����‍♀️��. In real life, skinny people are not this harsh. Then again maybe it’s a British thing? I thought they were delightful people.. Idk ����‍♀️. Just tired of seeing happy and polite big people and mean as hell skinny people. Is this how they want them to act on the show?..

  • Its 1:41 am and I am like to grap a snack but what but than I am gona be a cow and after alot of thinking just come to youtube ����P.s bro wtf “unless you like shit” I laughed so loud

  • If you wanna clean your pots that have really bad shit stuck to it. Put water in it, put it on the stove and just kinda clean it while its on the stove with like a wooden spoon or spatula. Usually works pretty well for me.

  • I’ll be eating healthy for like the whole week, like restricting obviously but like a normal amount. Like I’d still eat foods I like but in moderation and stuff and I’d feel fine and then one day I’d ruin it and just eat like 4000kcals in a day and just feel awful cause it ruins all my progress and idk what to do:(

  • Thanks for sharing, very inspiring post. A lotsof people including myself have been victims of Binge eating especially in times of crisis like this.

    Just also wanted to share a book a friend of mine recommended and has been very helpful, see link below should you be interested in purchasing a copy:

    Happy Reading ��

    Thanks

  • now I get why girls on internet adviced me here…..finally someone real. Thanks for the honesty. BTW, I’m going to prepare a pizza for dinner……………..

  • Same girl same. Currently struggling with chocolate/ sweet binges weekly after restricting throughout the week.. I’m trying to lose weight and workout 30 mins/day. I try to give myself “chocolate treats” throughout the week to prevent this binge but once I have a small taste it’s over for me and I want more. Definitely not a good cycle because I’ll lose weight then gain a couple pounds overnight from a binge:/ trying to find balance.. I also count calories and macros because this has helped me in the past lose weight.

  • 3:19 so instead of eating 1. Masturbate 2. Take drugs 3. Smoke cigarettes
    Thanks for the life-changing tips! I will try this immediately.

  • I like what you had to say! That is some good advice. I will try and break my bad habits (aka eating too much) and once that is accomplished I will start a new habit. Oh and btw I am pretty healthy. I am 16 and weigh roughly 199 pounds. I used to weigh 233 lbs about 2 years ago. Since then I have been working out and eating healthy. I just need to stop those cravings.

  • I always feel like I’m binging, when I’m reality I’m not even near reaching the recommended amount for a 6ft guy. I’m eating hundreds less than I should, I’m starting to get scared because I hit 114lbs and that is extremely unhealthy for my height…

  • The thing about brushing your teeth is so true! It’s strangely been one of the most effective things in stopping my boredom eating.

  • Wow… I didn’t even consider having an eating disorder until I watched this. I thought that the only eating disorders were bulimia, anorexia and so on.
    Thank you Natacha for sharing this! <3 You are amazing!
    I have been doing your no equipment at home workouts for more than a month now and love them. I am actually combing them with a class I used to do at the gym, BodyCombat and it works great for me.:)

  • For the burnt pot: baking Soda and vinegar paste! And a steel wool scrubber �� I did the same thing and with quite a bit of scrubbing it came fully clean ����❤️

  • Thanks, Natasha! I went through treatment for orthorexia and exercise anorexiahere’s my story, a TEDx Talk! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfLx3QWnIpI

  • Why do they always refer to the states when talking about extreme obesity? I understand there is an obesity problem there, but that does not mean they can’t find people in the UK.

  • I hate the fact I binge, during the day I eat every meal normally and then dinner come around, i usually binge in healthy food but I always fell guilty right after because my belly hurts so much. When I binge i fell it’s not me, I’m like a monster that wants to eat everything and it always starts with me thinking “ oh this little thing right here won’t be a problem “ but in the end it always is

  • Anybody suffering from Binge Eating….please watch the channel NEVER BINGE AGAIN. Amazing professional and first hand advice from a psychologist who has been there himself. These videos changed my life forever.

  • Great suggestions! I paint rocks and “hide” them in the park. I put some nice music on and paint away! You don’t have to be an artist to be a painter, and all the rocks have been picked up, and hopefully enjoyed:) Love the Maddie Cam too!

  • I have such a big problem with overeating! I really want to see my abs and also have fitness goals but feel like I am constantly self sabotaging:(

  • I always get so excited when I see that you uploaded a new video! and i saw that you almost hit those 10k omgggg. keep up thriving:)
    what i do when i have burned pots is that I fill it water and let it boil for some time. it helps to loosen the burned stuff and afzer it is easier to scrape it down:D

  • I’m realizing I have such disordered eating patterns! I’m trying to change my thoughts. I have gained a bit of weight recently (that Covid life) but also recently changing the way I view myself. I’m trying to see myself in a more positive way. I’m loving myself then realized I gained 10lbs but loving my body! Now I’ve gotten back into weight training and focusing on that and Jiu jitsu instead of what the scale says! Thank you for this video.

  • I bored eat all the time, during meals I do watch what I eat but it’s like I can never be full or satisfied. I eat three meals a day and snack between if I need. Plus I have two boys toddlers so I have to make different dishes for picky eaters. Bloated mostly but so far it’s been doing better.

  • Hi Natacha! This is obviously one of your old videos and I’m actually rewatching because I’ve already seen all your other ones and well… quarantine lead me here! I wanted to say that for me personally, I eat roughly 1200-1500 calories a day and I have my period and everything. I went through a phase where all I did was restrict which made my inner rebel go CRAZY and just end up binging all the foods I’d “banned”. However as I grew and developed a healthier relationship with food, stopped dieting and restricting, began to ate intuitively and what I GENUINELY felt like eating… it all kind of… went away. And I’m not saying I have the perfect relationship with food now, but the rough amount of calories I need to feel satiated and happy is 1200-1500, even though I’m always reading that women need 2000. Does this mean I have a slow metabolism?

  • Thank You for this wonderful video. I’ve subscribed to your channel. You’ve given me a safe place and understanding that I can do this. ������

  • Pls pls help me, i want to recover from my eating disorder.

    I always think about food literally whole day. When i first woke up and even before sleep. What should i do? I am so obsessed with food. I ate what i want today and yesterday just like what some video says but I think i’m just binging.
    I want to end my life. I am not like this before. I really miss myself.

    I need your help guys!!

  • Hello from Flemington, NJ. It is difficult to break old habits like snacking at night after dinner. Some of the things I do: Drinking bone broth, walking outside, cold water in a pretty copper mug ( which keeps it cold), brushing my teeth and rinsing with a minty mouth wash, and watching TV or healthy living YouTube channels in my bedroom upstairs, AWAY from the kitchen.

  • Ok guys I have an idea
    Just to show how much we love and appreciate everything Soph does for us
    I’m going to start a comment chain of positive and happy comments for her to read whenever she feels down ��
    So all you have to do is reply to this comment, and in one sentence or more, write something about Soph xx
    ����

  • We’ve been doing 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzles. The downside of that is, we stay up to 3 am working on them. I’ve been walking 5-6 miles a day, 172 miles in 29 days. I lost about 7 lbs without any changes in my diet.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I was actually about to start snacking like crazy�� By the way your hair looks soooo shiny and perfect����

  • That would totally be me driving to the Willy Wonka factory to eat every single chocolate bar in sight, LMAO! Thank you for a great video.:)

  • I’m always shook by how usually on these episodes both the supersize and superskinny hardly eat any vegetables, all their meals are just carbs

  • Was walking around my kitchen listening to this and literally stopped dead in my tracks when I heard “I was only eating 1400 calories.. and thought I had to do heaps of cardio” that’s exactly what I’ve been doing because I’m so caught up on not eating a lot of calories because I’m not burning many. but then I end up eating half my pantry at night because my body wants food, and a new cycle starts of wanting to limit calories because I’ve been eating so much

  • 8 hours of exercise per week sounds frightening to me! I’m aiming to do at least 20 mins per day (10 cardio and 10 stretching for splits), and even this is a struggle. Don’t know how you do it…

  • This week I’ve started to eat greens with lunch and dinner, most of the time a salad with mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion, and carrots. So I’ll eat my salad first and get Fuller faster when I move on the the chicken, or tuna, whatever. I also bought a bunch of fruit, so when I’m bored I’ll drink a bottle of water and if I still want to eat I’ll make a cup of tea and eat some cut up fruit. It’s working so far o.o

  • I mentally rehearse for my fast all day. When it starts it feels like 2nd nature. Ramp up your evening self care with epsom salt baths, meditation, etc. I chill under my infrared light with a guided meditation running. If there is something I want to eat I remind myself I can have it during my eating window. Mindfulness practice puts the kibosh on knee jerk snacking

  • my mum uses bleach to clean stains from pots and pans. That usually works, she also bleached mugs to get rid of coffee and tea stains:)

  • I have only came across your videos and I am quite older than you but have been battling with the same sort of issues for the past few years and most definitely see my self in what you have said…so yes you have helped at least 1 person ��

  • Thank you so much for this video! 

    I have had an ED since 2017 (I was 14). 
    At first I just started comparing myself to others and noticed that I was slightly bigger than some of my friends. In kindergarten a girl said that I looked pregnant and a couple of years after that my stepmother commented that I should lose a couple of kilos that I have “extra”. I think these comments could have been contributing to the start of my body-comparison. My mom and dad have always been struggling with weight; they are always trying to achieve a certain form by trying to eat healthy, train, and restrict certain foods. I guess I developed some kind of unhealthy thinking and behaving patterns from them as well. As a child I was sometimes rewarded with food and I could eat sweets only on Sundays. Some foods (like white bread) were banned, so I started craving them more often. 
    As I got older, me and my stepsister started going to the grocery stores to buy banned junk food. We were definitely binging, but didn’t think much of it because we weren’t even aware that this wasn’t okay. Then obviously as I got older the rules were loosened. At some point I started watching Youtube. There I started seeing all those “perfect skinny people”, therefore wanted to lose weight myself. At first I thought that cutting out sugar will be the solution. With that I started reading the food labels (it was at the beginning of 2017). It made me lose some weight, but at some point I realised that there are different kinds of sugars (fructose, lactose, gluten, sucrose etc.) and cutting out all of these seemed like a mission impossible so I gave up. Then, in the summer of the same year, I saw a video which was sponsored by a calorie counting app. It caught my attention and within a few months I developed an eating disorder. That’s when the food weighing and tracking started. 
    I started eating less and less and saw the weight dropping, which kept me motivated. I didn’t really educate myself on eating healthy and I genuinely thought that our bodies could “spend” energy only by exercising. So I thought that if I ate 1400 kcal a day (as it was recommended for my body in the calorie counting app), I would need to spend 1400 kcal through exercising in order to maintain my weight and exercise more or eat less in order to lose weight. So that’s when my over-exercising started. I had acrobatics for 4.5 h a week and on top of that I ran, walked a lot and did several ab workouts every day. I started getting all these compliments and made a friend with the same mindset as me. 
    Nobody thought I had a problem until I told my stepdad that I think something might be wrong with me. I told him not to tell my mom, but he did it anyway because he had been in a relationship with a person with an ED before, which is why he knew that I had one. It was around Christmas time in 2017 and I had lost almost 13kg at that point, but I wasn’t underweight which is why I didn’t get to the treatment centre. Then I started going to different specialists and therapists who gave me meal plans and consulted with my families, so they could help me. At that point I was mentally and physically so sick that I cried and screamed almost every time someone tried to feed me something that was unhealthy in my eyes, my blood tests looked very bad and my pulse and blood pressure were very low. I had to stop going to acrobatics and doing any form of exercise because I could’ve practically died that made me miserable. 
    My stepmom tried to help by eating with me, because I had to eat a lot more than others and it seemed so unfair and too much. I gained some weight, but every gram of extra weight seemed like a disaster. I still tried to restrict for a long time (by hiding food etc). The therapy didn’t help a lot. I tried to help myself by watching videos about ED recovery and reading about ED-s. At some point I could start exercising again. At first my parents had full control over my eating, but after many sessions of discussing they started loosening it. The sessions started to be more rarely. I wanted full control over my eating. I was tired of other people telling me what to do. 
    Now over a year has gone by, I am eating more and exercising. But I have developed depression (they almost gave me antidepressants, my parents just needed to give permission, but then quarantine happened and they now think I’m okay which is why they stepped back), perfectionism, anxiety, body dysmorphia and I am trying to heal but it is VERY hard. I my cellulite has gotten bad even though I am not fat, which makes me hate my body. I was binging a lot as well until just a few weeks ago when I decided to stop. But I do not know what is normal eating anymore. I doubt myself all the time if I have eaten enough, too much or too little. I am scared of being hungry and being full. I want to accept my body, but also to have a fit and attractive body. I have done a lot of self-discovery and tried many healing techniques, but they don’t seem to help. I am still trying every day and it is a struggle. I wouldn’t consider myself very sick anymore, but I am definitely not recovered completely. I still think about food almost all the time. Fortunately not as much as before though:).  Oh btw I have never had my period and I’m 16.

    Okay I think I am done with my essay now xd. I don’t know what got into me. Sorry haha. If you read it then wow seriously thank you!

  • Wait isn’t 1500 cal normal? I have an app and it only lets me eat 1400 to lose weight. I guess thats why I was starving all the time and binge eating and then over exercising which sucks. My knees hurt so much now to the point I cant walk properly bc of running so much.

  • Girl I made this breakfast with frozen blueberries, bananas, blueberry yogurt, & a bit of chocolate protein… plus some cool whip. Omg it was SOO good!!��❤️ seriously tasted like a snack instead of breakfast! Loveee����

  • There’s a rapid technique which has taught me to moderate myself, and to realize there’s no point eating more than what you need for the day.
    Sometimes we eat just to feel the flavor, not because we really need more energy.
    What I did just for two days and what finally helped me realize I was acting compulsively was this..
    I went for that snack knowing that I didn’t need it (I knew in my mind I only looked up for it because of sensory pleasure), then I put it in my mouth, I started chewing it without allowing the swallow, and then I spited it out. After doing this for up to two days, I finally made myself learn that what I was doing was irrational and compulsive. This technique has also helped me to be more conscious when eating, to discern between “needing” the food (for real), and when just seeking pleasure out of it. After chewing and spitting it out I pondered on this “what’s the point doing this stupidity? Just to feel the flavor? Look Dario, you’re just wasting food and money, it’s pointless and for sure inmoral (because there’s people which often don’t have food to eat) and a waste of time doing this”. Now I’ve got a new mindset where food doesn’t live there.
    Doing this for up to two days will be enough, and you will never ever overeat again, you will never need the technique again.

    Edit: also, drink water!! It controls hunger. Sometimes our bodies ask for food because it doesn’t know where else to get water from.. So remember to see if youre hungry or thirsty. Drink water!

  • People need to get hobbies rather than stuffing their faces. People need activities to create that dopamine rush through productivity. Releasing those “feel good feelings” with pleasures of a hobby other than Oreos, onion rings and cheeseburgers…

  • This video is obviously super old, but I just discovered this channel and it has been one of several that have helped me in my current process of getting over my eating disorder and cycle of restricting and binging. I’m not perfect yet (still binge every now and then and have anxiety around food) but I’ve improved SO much! Six months ago over winter break, I was binging almost every night and now I havent binged in probably over a month. My relationship with food is healing, I’m inspired to start lifting (used to be too afraid of getting “big” if I lifted), am eating more than I was earlier this year, and am more forgiving and content with my body. Thank you natacha even tho you will probably never see this random comment on a video from three years ago and to anyone who feels hopeless about food and your bodyI felt the same way just months ago and I can promise, there is hope

  • That just reflects me…:) How long did you need to really transform your mind beingrelaxed about new shape etc.? I am right now at the point of accepting the new composition even though it feels good, it still feels “strangely” new. Any suggestion to me? THX

  • So bored I am just eating way to much. My only exercise is walking outside. I need my local gym to open ASAP. Watch a movie and eat. Look at internet stuff and eat. Uuugghhhhh

  • Thank you soo soo much,I seriously am starting feel better about this breaking the binge boredom cycle, I thank God you popped up on my YouTube, I think your the only counselor who is really describing what I feel when I binge out of boredom or a emotional state,wow��������������I’m feeling like I can tackle this now even if it takes a Month,I know this is a habit and I’m terrified if I don’t do something now it will be a every day habit and I will end up super super huge that it won’t be easy to drop all of the pounds,thank you soo soo much GOD BLESS you Matt Cama ������ if I could I would soo choose you as my primary care doctor or counselor

  • I’m twelve I should be average but I get home and eat minimum 3 packets of crisps 10 cookies 4 sausage rolls but I’m really active this is so helpful I’m sure you can all relate when you have a speech to yourself saying I’m not gonna eat 10 mins later uve ate a whole meal hope this helps

  • Thank you. I grew up with an eating disorder and because I had it in primary school it’s difficult to know what ‘normal’ is. This video made me realise I still have a way to go.

  • thank you so much for this video! i always want to eat when im on my ipad or iphone, so if i do this, then it will lower my screentime and help me lose weight:)

  • I live in Salt Lake City East bench. I just walk out my front door and I’m on a (Rocky Mountain) hiking trail. NOT SNICKERING at you at all. I love The Appalachians. I wish we had your beautiful forests and moderate trails. You guys are fabulous. I appreciate each and every installation. BTW, “night time eating” and that fierce, driving, “TV time” hunger has ALWAYS been my weakness. Thank you for discussing it.

  • I’m 17 and all what you just said is happening now to me. I cry everynight and feel normal in the day. I binge every afternoon and night, what you just is really helpful Natacha, I thought my situation is really hopeless right now. I’m researching about how to stop my binge, because its becoming worst and i’m becoming bulimic. I’m going to apply your suggestion. I feel so regretful that I listened to everyone that threw negative words about myself and body just because I wasn’t there ideal. I thought limiting my calorie intake to 600 for 4 months and banning all the foods I like can help me change my physical look for the rest of my life, but it turned into my most worst nightmare. Thank you so much for you and your video, I thought I was alone and what I am going through will never stop. This is such a big help ❤

  • What to do when you eat out of pain? I have arthritis in my spine and at 62 I really resist taking any meds…but the I find I can eat to ease pain. I.m stuck between 2 bad choices.

  • Thanks for the tips hun <3 I feel you with the bored eating haha, although I've been doing well this last week or two just trying to eat when I'm actually hungry... I'm doing pretty good so far xx

  • It is not about the food, but I have a tip for your pot. YOU need to put water in it and a bit of detergent for clothes (the powdery one), and turn on the heat and let it boil for a while:)

  • Thanks so much for sharing!

    I hope everyone is doing well, Fighting boredom and all that! I guess I must be alone in that not too much has changed for me, I’m a stay-at-home mom with five homeschoolers, I live in the middle of nowhere up in the mountains, and I’m not an outdoorsy person, so I’m always inside no matter what! I used to love to walk, and I wish I could but I have multiple sclerosis and the terrain is just too rough for me to take walks:-( So anyway the way I fight boredom is I practice lettering as a hobby. I have been transcribing the Psalms, and this is for fun, inspiration, devotion, as well as perhaps some mental benefits for my neurological issues! I have always felt that reading and writing, almost no matter what the subject, is beneficial to mental clarity. So I want to write some of the most ridiculous or mundane things just to that end! Lol

    And it definitely has been stopping me from snacking. a side note, keto and intermittent fasting helps tremendously with that as well!

    I also try to make a point of exercising everyday, and Dr Becky I definitely use your tactic of repeating something a number of times until it becomes habit! I’ve always read that it takes 28 days, but I loved in your recent video how you use the particular number 40, and we both know why ����

    Keep up the good work guys, love you!!
