The Surprising Reason You Might Be Overeating and What to Do About It A new study suggests that if you struggle to resist the cookie jar, your cluttered kitchen could be to blame. By Megan Kennedy. The Surprising Reason Why You May Be Overeating. by Marisa Moore, MBA, RDN, LD.

May 13, 2016. 7 Comments. Packaged foods are under scrutiny more than ever these days. Now, there’s something else to look out for next time you pick up a box.

Overeating can have many causes, but they all produce the same result. You gain weight and feel like you’re out of control.

While you may be blaming yourself for lacking willpower or not trying hard enough, there could be something else at work. If the body is not getting adequate nutrition even though we are eating enough calories it will crave sustenance which means hunger to you and I. The high fat, high sugar, high salt and additives in processed food can also lead us to crave more junk food which in turn leads us to overeating. Cut back on the junk food and increase fresh, wholefoods that are high in fibre and valuable nutrients that. But as you probably already know, stopping the habit of overeating isn’t as simple as just deciding to put your fork down. People overeat for a variety of reasons.

Boredom, self-esteem issues, and excessive stress are all common culprits that people point to when they’re asked why they overeat. Obesity has nothing to do with food — there are other reasons why people overeat,” Dranitsaris tells The Huffington Post Canada. The mother-daughter duo suggests overeating is determined by who. Some people who overeat have a clinical disorder called binge eating disorder (BED). People with BED compulsively eat large amounts of food in a short amount of time and feel guilt or shame.

12 Surprising Reasons Why You Overeat Overeating can have many causes, but they all produce the same result. You gain weight and feel like you’re out of control.

  • Binge eating is a disorder that I just happen to suffer from. This advice is dangerous and misinformed. There is no magic pill or remedy that will fix or “reverse” binge eating.

  • Mine gets worse after I have one of my reoccurring nightmares having to do with sexual assault…I actually get so full that I end up throwing up the next day. Its maddening, embarrassing and what sucks the most is my flashbacks are gone while I eat then as soon as I’m done I’m sick, then it happens again and again and again. I’ve experienced this nearly every night since I was 17…

  • Just pack and save all those meals for around 4pm-8pm and scarf it down. your binge eating will go away. drink lemon water for the whole day also.

  • I usually binge on sweets and the feeling after it is the worst, I feel terribly guilty and I just want to throw up, I’ve tried to make my self throw up several times, in different ways and I just can’t! It never works and that makes me feel even more guilty. Please I need help, can someone tell me an actual effective way to throw up? I know it’s not a good thing but I cannot live with this amount of guilt.
    I don’t know if I have an eating disorder but I tried to talk to my mom about it and she said she would help me and we would overcome it together but she’s never here when I binge eat and try to make myself purge.
    I want help and want to eat normal again. Last summer I went through a big weight loss and felt confident about myself, I was able to control my eating habits but now I can’t help it but lose it all.

  • Exercise is absolutely key. Try to use a kitchen with someone that binge eats 24 hours a day. It is impossible. You will not be able to diagnose with people that DO NOT have the ability do look at themselves objectively. It will not happen.

  • Dr. Oz is a travesty to the medical community, but chris… you used to be respected for what you have done. Medicine and science DOES NOT support this. My how the mighty have fallen.

  • i love how they are having someone who is a trainer talk about food and diet processes. he’s supposed to be an expert on fitness not food.

  • The problem with this is, that it seems to be aimed at people, who overeat for emotional reasons. Most obese people simply have an appetite, that doesn’t match their caloric needs. You can distract all you want, if you are physically hungry or simply lacking energy, that feeling returns the second you stop distracting.

  • I walked in to my aunts house and she was watching a random video about this girl and the girl said something about binge eating disorder and my aunt goes why do they always call them disorders when its not that serious. And her daughters (my cousins) agree. Mind you they are all the average weight for their height, age everything maybe even lower. My aunt always tells them they look like they have been gaining and they look a little chubby. Here they are weighing like 116 ( their 17 year old twins) while i weigh over 200 pounds. Then the girl goes on about the symptoms and i realize i have them all. I went home took some online tests all of them said i most likely have it so i ask my mom about it and she set me up for counseling i don’t know yet if i for sure have it but if i do i don’t know if i can ever go over their again like how rude for people who struggle with it they have to deal with a lot of things and their just gonna say its not a big deal. SMH

  • I’ve been starving myself for so long and lost a ton of weight and lately I have been eating like CRAZY! I feel guilty and shame and out of control:(

  • Now that I think of it, I think I may have BED. For years whenever I get stressed, I just eat lots of whatever food I feel like scavenging down in my house. Then afterward, I feel really awful. If I am craving something and especially if I am stressed, it will be gone. I am naturally thin with a high metabolism so nobody can tell. I am scared of my metabolism slowing down and me getting bigger or my heart getting worse and I become unable to tell until it’s too late. I am young but I have been doing this since I was like 8 or 9. How could I have never realized?!?! My goodness…

  • Used to look up to Chris Powell… I’m extremely disappointed to see him talking about hacks to try to fix an eating binge after it happens with magic teas and special shakes. It’s a sad day.

  • I’ve never been diagnosed but I can’t really feel full and I eat a lot and I took it from my mom. I can’t really control it when I can it’s hard, especially at party, I’ve ate so much once I threw up and most of the time I feel like throwing up
    I want to stop so bad, it’s getting much better tho I’m overweight and I’ve been eating Much less

  • Pfft! I feel amazingly empowered after a food binge. When I am in control of my food choices I eat everything, and will sometimes plan for days to be able to get away with it. I feel rebellious and defiant, screw diets I’m eating. Not guilty at all. But it’s only a “disorder” if it causes that person a problem, right?

  • I binge-eat on a regular basis. I do it alone, quickly, and feel terrible afterwards. I feel like I can’t control it or stop myself even though I want to. I then try to compensate by over-exercising and punishing myself with more exertion. You mentioned that this would put me into a different category. What would that be?

  • Gluttony seems to be a sin that Christians like to ignore. We are often quick to label smoking and drinking as sins, but for some reason gluttony is accepted or at least tolerated. Many of the arguments used against smoking and drinking, such as health and addiction, apply equally to overeating. Many believers would not even consider having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette but have no qualms about gorging themselves at the dinner table. This should not be!

    Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.”

    Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2, 2 Peter 1:5-7, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, and 2 Corinthians 10:5.) The ability to say “no” to anything in excess—self-control—is one of the fruits of the Spirit common to all believers (Galatians 5:22).

    God has blessed us by filling the earth with foods that are delicious, nutritious, and pleasurable. We should honor God’s creation by enjoying these foods and by eating them in appropriate quantities. God calls us to control our appetites, rather than allowing them to control us.
    Gian Giorgio Trissino
    Both I and J were used interchangeably by scribes to express the sound of both the vowel and the consonant. It wasn’t until 1524 when Gian Giorgio Trissino, an Italian Renaissance grammarian known as the father of the letter J, made a clear distinction between the two sounds.

  • I totally haven’t mastered yet, but I’m getting better and I want to share some things that have helped me. Sometimes I don’t eat enough at meals, and when that happens, I want snacks all day. Name sure you eat enough, especially at breakfast, and if you get hungry between meals plan out healthy snacks instead if eating whatever is closest and easiest to eat. Don’t leave junk food out where you can see it, and keep the food away from where you spend time in your house. If you eat wasn’t to eat something and you know you shouldn’t, take a walk outside. You’ll be away from food, you’ll be getting exercise, and if you take time to enjoy you’re surroundings, you’ll feel better without eating. If you want to know if you’re actually hungry or just emotional, ask yourself if you would eat raw broccoli it an apple. If so, eat a healthy snack. If not, you’re emotionally hungry and you need to figure out what’s really bothering you and deal with it. My favorite saying about overeating is this: Face your stuff, don’t stuff your face!

  • I love your channel! We have quite a bit in common. I dont get hungry its so odd.. im thin and I sometimes binge eat to point of being in pain.. i notice binge eating is emotional. U ALSO DIDN GET HUNGRY EITHER! THANK GOD❤ this is a blessing! Now I can take notes and try and recognize when I’m hungry.. i have so many allergies too.. so its such work.. but this vid is so great! I dont intentionally not eat I jus rarely get hungry!! I also deal w anxiety!❤��

  • Excellent information
    Self control is much needed.
    We must not make food an idol…..must have when we think we need it.
    Be good to yourself…listen to your body
    Cheers

  • Lol! I enjoyed this topic. One comment, animals WILL over eat. Working in research agriculture horses get cushings… similar to chronos or diabetes in humans…and stroll through any local pet store and you are bound to see over weight dogs. I get the point of wild animals vs. Domesticated. As you were speaking I couldn’t shake the image and memory of holding an obese golden skunk. He was so fat he has a forhead fat roll which covered his eyes. He was a little cuddle skunk and everyone loved him.

  • Tiffany, you are an incredibly sweet woman with such a warm heart, and every time I watch your videos I feel so loved, and like I am deserving of self-love as well. Especially with topics like this, I think a tender and understanding approach is much, much better than shaming, which I see too often. I’ve felt so much shame and self-hatred because of my overeating, and sometimes hearing people tell me how to fix it seems like they’re trying to fix me as a person, and that can make me feel like I’m broken. But taking care of myself includes eating in a way that takes care of my body, but even if I mess up, I still have self-worth. This video reminded me of that. It’s still an ongoing battle but it’s encouraging to know there are people like you who reach others like this and are fully aware of God’s love for each and every one of us.

  • Thanks. I noticed the water was adding after day 2. It was exactly three. That will save a lot of freak outs. I am doing this quite often atm as I am low and I reach for unhealthy food.Thank you for explaining how to get rid of the process.

  • If only i was to feel embarrassed, the amount of my food intake could have decreased. I don’t even feel embarrassed of my binge.
    Right now, im dying after a huge binge.

  • I found that replacing foods with other types that taste just as good but are lower in calories and are better in nutritional value has helped me. Eg. I use to drink a lot of soda but now I drink soda water with lemon in it. It’s much more refreshing and healthier.

  • I usually binge on sweets and the feeling after it is the worst, I feel terribly guilty and I just want to throw up, I’ve tried to make my self throw up several times, in different ways and I just can’t! It never works and that makes me feel even more guilty. Please I need help, can someone tell me an actual effective way to throw up?

  • This is fascinating. you’ve given lots of research and brain science behind this which is comforting to know it’s not a lack of willpower or discipline.

  • Hey Tiffany,
    These tips sound like they could help and I’ll try to incorporate them when ever I feel the urge to binge.
    I have problem. I feel fearful and uncomfortable eating infront of strangers and I will go to all lengths to not eat in public. This fear is starting to effect how I feel eating with my family. Does anyone here experience this or has so in the past, it would be helpful know how to some tips to help combat this.

  • The problem with this is, that it seems to be aimed at people, who overeat for emotional reasons. Most obese people simply have an appetite, that doesn’t match their caloric needs. You can distract all you want, if you are physically hungry or simply lacking energy, that feeling returns the second you stop distracting.

  • This is the first time that I am talking about this. I went through a traumatic episode and I literally doubled my total weight. I binge eat out of control. Where do I start? What do I do? Please help! I am really ruined.

  • I’ve been starving myself for so long and lost a ton of weight and lately I have been eating like CRAZY! I feel guilty and shame and out of control:(

  • This all is a bunch a shit.. Everyone has crap they have had to deal with in there life why do people who use this excusr for a free pass? No I believe there lazy and don’t want to face reality. If you don’t like something in your life get off your lazy bums and change it. Society today has an excuse for every damn thing.

  • I can make a list of distracting options instead of going to food but i’m having a harder time with the processing option… is this a more emotionnal aspect? most of the time for me it’s out of loneliness and frustration over my love life or my work. But processing things will mean mainly cry or scream ^^; filling the “void” is something I noticed indeed, and I know where it stems for, therefore my binges don’t help anymore but the behavior is still present althought after 4 years of therapy it’s more or so 2 times a month, I can go without binging to weeks, feeling great but it’s always lurking in the corner and my behavior comes back without notice. I’m going to go to hypnotherapy next to go deeper, trying to find other coping mechanisms and identify triggers. It’s a lot of hard work mentally and as u said, it’s getting worse the more I dig because I have been using this for 15+ years and it’s very hard to break appart and rebuild but then again, I also was suicidal 4 years ago and I worked really hard already on fixing multiples aspects, why wouldn’t I be able to do this part? I can. and I will. I’m just unaware of the tools. Can you give ressources on that?

  • I am a chocoholic. I could easily put it down to abandoment issues however no matter if i am happy, sad, glad or mad i can’t stop snacking. Its not an issue with food its snacks like chocolate, buscuits, sweets, fizzy and etc. Before Covid 19 i was going gym all the time and i used to go jogging every morning but now i can’t motivate myself to work out at home. I have a fantasy of what i want to look like and everytime i almost reach my goal i screw up by eating dozens of snacks again. I can eat 4 chocolate bars one after an other and still want more after.

  • I lost weight, went to a doctor, was happy..until pandemic, recovered most of the weight, stopped exercising, eat badly..i feel really anxious and bad about this i thought i could controlled it but it won over me:'(

  • Does the compensatory behaviours mean that if u binge eating of and on regularly, but then starve urself for days after, mean it doesn’t come under BED?

  • Hi gurls! Lol. I totally stress eat. Pop corn is my go to. Also, from childhood I was always told not to waste food. Now, I can’t seem to leave when I am not hungry.

  • The worst time in my life I’d eat an entire chocolate cake and gallon of milk every day for weeks on end. I feel so ashamed and I still carry that weight on me. Part of mine has to do with sexual abuse. I guess I wanted to make myself unattractive.

  • OH my GOD this happens all the time to me and I am thinking what’s going on?! I thought this was JUST me!!! I binged as I have the flu, so I made sure I fasted after and I just completed day two of Intermittent fasting and want to ask?!!!! if I have a 55 calorie hot chocolate drink, do I restart the fast again or is low calorie drinks not included??? Ps I’m going to watch this video again as this video is SO ME!!!!!! �� Jodielee �� from Jodielee&Marzi

    I hope someone can answer my question about low calorie drinks and IF

    salt gains weight on me also…. I need this mans book ��%

    Thanks guys

  • I suffer from chronic imsonia, anxiety, depression. I think overeating came first. I was healthy until the 7th grade and over 1 summer I gained so much weight. I haven’t been healthy since. I’ve lost weight but haven’t as of yet found a way to.keep it off. Conventional dieting obviously does not work for me. I’m lonely, I’m sedentary. I’m financially challenged. I don’t know what to do.

  • I binge to cope with trauma, I guess. I hate that I do it but I can’t stop doing it, even if I want to (I do). It doesn’t help that my mom calls me fat. Basically all I do every day is watch the iz pilot again, eat, and then cry. It’s pretty unepic, gamers *sad whip nae nae*

  • This all is a bunch a shit.. Everyone has crap they have had to deal with in there life why do people who use this excusr for a free pass? No I believe there lazy and don’t want to face reality.

  • I have the disorder but didn’t know it was a thing i just looked it up and now i know why im so chubby asking myself how did i get like this…. This is why im currently tryna lose weight kinda hard when your 11 but to graduate 164 pounds and born into a fat despressed family… Im actully starting the water fast wont be hard since i dont like and usually dont eat infront of my family or anyone..

  • Every time I feel down or alone all I want is food or if someone makes fun of me I’ll go to the cupboard and eat everything I eat soooo much and never feel full I told my mom about this and she ignored it because she doesn’t know what’s wrong but I do and I honestly want help I just don’t know what to do ����And it turns out I’ve been doing this since I was 6 and never knew what it was

  • I had this and got over it. Partly because I was eventually put off by eating the same things compulsively. To fill a void and it was my emotional companion whether I was happy stressed or sad. I never gained a huge amount of weight. My family would be surprised to know I didn’t gain even more. They would have never have thought; you’d think I wouldn’t have maintained a normal weight. I would always make time during my busy days, to buy Starbucks, from the vending machine, shops.. anyplace where I could get snacks. I would hide my wrappers in my bag to throw in the bin on the way to school not obviously use the bins at home. I would do anything to hide it. Once my brother was like what are those crumbs on your bed? I was like I don’t know I just brushed it off. Eventually I just lost that connection. Now I love other things like listening to music. I was just bored lonely. There was a peak and then it was eventually slowing down to the point where hardly anything happened.

  • my binge triggers: feeling lonely, sad, stressed, scared, empty. lack of energy. boredom. weight. negativity. when unhealthy food is available

  • I had no idea horse riding could be one of the “body focused” sports/activities. Makes soooo much sense now that I’m thinking back on things (I competitively rode from age 8-17, then off/on casually until an injury stopped me at 23/24)
    That one part helps incredibly, almost and “aha” moment

  • I’ve been binging since childhood. But I can count on one hand how many times I did made myself throw up after a particularly big binge meal. You said that if you purge, then it falls into another category. But, where do I fall into?

  • sometimes i eat out of boredom, or my emotions, or because i love food. either way, i’m just really ashamed and i wanna change for my health and to feel better about my body but it’s so hard because i’m depressed

  • I hate this. Falling down these rabbit holes…
    I’m quickly realizing I’m just fat and lazy. I don’t fit any of these descriptions and other vids of depression. I don’t feel shame about any of this stuff…what if I need to find my shame?

  • I starve myself all day and i just binge on fruit at night. Is this healthy? I dont think it is… I was afraid this was a sign of BED I hope it isnt…I never gain weight tho. Thts kinda weird.

  • I want to just share one thing that helped me during the course of changing my eating habits. I used to feel so bad about letting my really good, delicious, slaved over food go to waste (like that last little bit that takes you into overeating and you know it will but it looks so good and took a long time to prepare.) So instead of eating it, and therefore overeating, I would just excuse myself from the table and come back in about 30 minutes to clean the dishes off. By then, that little bit that had so much power over me has lost its appeal because it’s no longer fresh and I can easily dispose of it without the temptation. And not to mention, the correct amount of food that I ate has already done its good work and I’m no longer hungry, which just empowers me to clear the dinner dishes and not have to eat everyones (my kid’s) leftovers. It is nice to go play crazy eights or connect 4 during that time. My family surely doesn’t mind that!

  • I Binge Eat, for Emotional reasons, it will amaze you in Pyscology, the actuality of your deeper issues, definitely is complicated.

  • I am extremely over weight (400 lbs) and i have been diagnosed with B.E.D i have never found the proper treatment. I also have CPTSD (childhood sexual abuse of 6 years) localized or generalized Dissociative Amnesia. anxiety,depression, BP2 and BPD. I feel so lost and alone

  • I found that replacing foods with other types that taste just as good but are lower in calories and are better in nutritional value has helped me. Eg. I use to drink a lot of soda but now I drink soda water with lemon in it. It’s much more refreshing and healthier.

  • I want to just share one thing that helped me during the course of changing my eating habits. I used to feel so bad about letting my really good, delicious, slaved over food go to waste (like that last little bit that takes you into overeating and you know it will but it looks so good and took a long time to prepare.) So instead of eating it, and therefore overeating, I would just excuse myself from the table and come back in about 30 minutes to clean the dishes off. By then, that little bit that had so much power over me has lost its appeal because it’s no longer fresh and I can easily dispose of it without the temptation. And not to mention, the correct amount of food that I ate has already done its good work and I’m no longer hungry, which just empowers me to clear the dinner dishes and not have to eat everyones (my kid’s) leftovers. It is nice to go play crazy eights or connect 4 during that time. My family surely doesn’t mind that!

  • OMG, Kati, “obesity” is NOT an eating disorder! It is NOT BED! They are not the same thing. Your videos are so ignorant on the subject of eating disorders. Please refer people to ED treatment professionals, experts, which bluntly, you are not. You don’t get to just make stuff up.

  • Because you had a hard time finding any sense of control in school and social situations you found that you had control over food. It was rebellious eating things that you werent able to before, and that bit of control grew and grew. You thrive on the control of eating things-buying things because you shouldnt be allowed to do it, but you do it anyway because you can control it, even when others tell you you cant or you arent supposed to. You worry that when you change, and you loose that thing that you were able to control for so long so easily, you will fall and struggle. Food has always been a thing that you can control. More you eat, more control you feel. You try to work out, but the social anxiety and body image lies flood your head to the point that you give up and spiral into BED again. I wrote this today as it popped into my head and the truth in it really hit me.

  • I used to binge eat a lot when I was a teenager. Ate until I felt sick, the only reason I stopped was because I managed to leave home when I turned 18.

  • This is great advice! I did those same things! It took me so long to really accept that I was eating my feelings! More frequent meals -yes! I heard that on your high anxiety video. These tips really work!! I started them a few weeks ago and I’m really feeling less anxiety in general and no guilt when I leave a half a biscuit on my plate!

  • Hey how’s it going I hope all is well. I myself dealt with binge eating for about seven years.. It’s fucking horrible but I learned how to control it and I’ve had lost 60 pounds and got probably the best shape of my life!! I even made a YouTube page dedicated to my journey if anyone is interested check it out!!

  • Gluttony seems to be a sin that Christians like to ignore. We are often quick to label smoking and drinking as sins, but for some reason gluttony is accepted or at least tolerated. Many of the arguments used against smoking and drinking, such as health and addiction, apply equally to overeating. Many believers would not even consider having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette but have no qualms about gorging themselves at the dinner table. This should not be!

    Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.”

    Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2, 2 Peter 1:5-7, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, and 2 Corinthians 10:5.) The ability to say “no” to anything in excess—self-control—is one of the fruits of the Spirit common to all believers (Galatians 5:22).

    God has blessed us by filling the earth with foods that are delicious, nutritious, and pleasurable. We should honor God’s creation by enjoying these foods and by eating them in appropriate quantities. God calls us to control our appetites, rather than allowing them to control us.

  • I can relate so much, i eat food when im bored…normally i ate really good and healty food,but some day i really wake up wanting chocate cookie,tuc,cereal and a loooot of candies….and then i felt so gulty. You video was really intresting, i’ll get your advise. And from an italian, pasta tomato souce and cheese..is just the best things ever xD.

  • this happens to me for a couple months every year… i always have to wait until no one is around so i can binge. i can’t stop thinking about food and even when i just ate so much i feel nauseous, i start to make another meal…

  • The scary thing about any eating disorder, be it anorexia, bulimia, BED, or another eating disorder like OSFED/EDNOS, is that even though anorexia has a weight requirement, none of the other disorders do, and the truth is that all ED behaviors, including anorexia/restriction, can occur at any weight. This is incredibly dangerous because no one will know that you need help. Only the most emaciated anorexics or the 600 lb people on reality TV “look” like something is clearly going on with them. So you can hypothetically be overweight and severely malnourished from starving yourself, or naturally slim with a stomach on the verge of rupture from extreme binge eating, and no one would ever suspect it, in fact many people wouldn’t believe it if you told them. Especially with BED, people just blame you for your behaviors and in fact often enable you (case in point, many fast food restaurants). Many people don’t see BED as a problem, because it doesn’t take you young like anorexia and bulimia can, it often takes a long time to kill you (except in the most extreme cases where it can cause gastric dilation/rupture among other issues), like alcohol or smoking. It’s still just as dangerous as the other disorders though, there are so many health risks associated with obesity and binge eating. Basically similar to the risks of the typical “American junk food” obesity-causing diet, except possibly worse because you’re eating far more of that junk food than the average person. I don’t suffer with BED myself, but I know the dangers of BED firsthand by how it’s affected my family. My grandpa was very sick from Type II diabetes due to probable BED, though he was never formally diagnosed (he didn’t “look” like he had BED either, for whatever reason his body didn’t metabolize most of the food and it just went right through him), he spent the last 20 years of his life in and out of hospitals due to blood sugar issues, nerve issues, etc. (it should be mentioned that he was very ill in other ways mentally, so he didn’t manage his diabetes properly). My aunt was actually diagnosed with BED/”compulsive overeating”, she had to get bariatric surgery and now lives on a heavily restrictive diet. She was never extremely obese, but she was very overweight due to her condition and had to go through a lot of dieting and therapy to get to where she is now, at a healthier weight and more importantly healthier mindset. Not only that, but heart disease runs in my family, and both the aforementioned grandfather and my dad (who doesn’t have BED but does struggle with subclinical overeating) had (and survived) heart attacks, which is influenced by genetics and diet combined (in fact, there’s a quote from a doctor I read in an article that “any [unhealthy] diet will beat genetics”). You don’t even have to have BED to eat yourself into a heart attack, 1 in 4 Americans have heart disease. I know I may be getting off topic, but if you have BED, or any other eating disorder, get help. You are sick enough. Every single ED is incredibly dangerous. You don’t have to “look like it” to need help. Two people I knew in treatment who had BED look completely “normal” weight and appearance wise, yet they clearly struggle once you hear their stories.

  • If we remember that alcohol is a sugar, albeit partially ‘pre-digested’ by the fermentation bacteria, then it makes perfect sense that many alcoholics who quit drinking would replace alcohol with sugar!

  • i dont know if I have this disorder. but I have struggled with binge eating and i am recovering from ortherexia and after all the restricting, i am scared to restrict now because i am scared of binge eating. but if i say no to one thing my mental state goes CRAZY and it gets triggered easy and I can control it. its always at night after dinner. tonight was triggered by my sister making cookies and i was out of my routine.

  • Mine gets worse after I have one of my reoccurring nightmares having to do with sexual assault…I actually get so full that I end up throwing up the next day. Its maddening, embarrassing and what sucks the most is my flashbacks are gone while I eat then as soon as I’m done I’m sick, then it happens again and again and again. I’ve experienced this nearly every night since I was 17…

  • I binge-eat on a regular basis. I do it alone, quickly, and feel terrible afterwards. I feel like I can’t control it or stop myself even though I want to. I then try to compensate by over-exercising and punishing myself with more exertion. You mentioned that this would put me into a different category. What would that be?

  • Because you had a hard time finding any sense of control in school and social situations you found that you had control over food. It was rebellious eating things that you werent able to before, and that bit of control grew and grew. You thrive on the control of eating things-buying things because you shouldnt be allowed to do it, but you do it anyway because you can control it, even when others tell you you cant or you arent supposed to.

  • I used to binge eat a lot when I was a teenager. Ate until I felt sick, the only reason I stopped was because I managed to leave home when I turned 18.

  • This week I pinged eating 4 times I ate 4 medium pizza’s and so many other junk foods I struggle with sleeping so I’m awake also at night and I feel so stressed lately I’m a senior and I must get high grades and my parents always tell me to lose weight and study hard and I do nothing useful. I just feel so fucking angry. I struggle with migraine and it’s sucks because it hurts so much and I never talk about it because when I do my mom always says from that damn phone and starts yelling at me I take medication for my migraine but it seems not working when I’m pressured Also I do have PTSD I wasn’t aware of it effecting me that much but when I was younger I was abused and lately every time I rest it just hit me with flashbacks and I memorize everything I’ve never told anyone because I have no one also that fact I’m gay just ruins everything for me is just like life doesn’t want me to live normally and happy

  • I’m embarrassed all I do is eat I’m only 12 years old old sugar in the house and I’m ashamed of myself I need help recurrent episodes of binge eating defines been mostly peanut butter I just get the spoon in and keep eating out of the peanut butter jar whenever I see food I eat and a lot when I’m alone cuz I’m embarrassed but my mom will find out

  • I walked in to my aunts house and she was watching a random video about this girl and the girl said something about binge eating disorder and my aunt goes why do they always call them disorders when its not that serious. And her daughters (my cousins) agree. Mind you they are all the average weight for their height, age everything maybe even lower. My aunt always tells them they look like they have been gaining and they look a little chubby. Here they are weighing like 116 ( their 17 year old twins) while i weigh over 200 pounds. Then the girl goes on about the symptoms and i realize i have them all. I went home took some online tests all of them said i most likely have it so i ask my mom about it and she set me up for counseling i don’t know yet if i for sure have it but if i do i don’t know if i can ever go over their again like how rude for people who struggle with it they have to deal with a lot of things and their just gonna say its not a big deal.

  • I suffer from chronic imsonia, anxiety, depression. I think overeating came first. I was healthy until the 7th grade and over 1 summer I gained so much weight. I haven’t been healthy since. I’ve lost weight but haven’t as of yet found a way to.keep it off. Conventional dieting obviously does not work for me. I’m lonely, I’m sedentary. I’m financially challenged. I don’t know what to do.

  • I used to binge eat every day and every night for about 2 years until I gained 30 kgs and realized that I am still depressed. I realised that eating won’t make me feel better in the long term and it’s much better to feel hungry or sad and face the reality of life instead of eating your emotions because that’s just a waste of time and money, you can eat and eat but nothing will fill that void in your heart.

  • This is fascinating. you’ve given lots of research and brain science behind this which is comforting to know it’s not a lack of willpower or discipline.

  • I erm, I’m young. and I’m not obsese. I’m actually around 130 and I’m a minor. I believe I have a binge-eating disorder, currently I’m under quarantine and I want to seek help. I never can stop eating though out the day, even when I’m full. I eat so many times a day and even when I’m trying to stop myself, I still go back and eat the rest of the box or pizza, and right after I just am so stressed and worried all of the time I can’t stop it and I’m gaining wait. I can’t stop eating until I’m so full I feel horrible and I feel so insecure and disgusted with myself. sorry, I just.. needed to say that

  • If only i was to feel embarrassed, the amount of my food intake could have decreased. I don’t even feel embarrassed of my binge.
    Right now, im dying after a huge binge.

  • Pfft! I feel amazingly empowered after a food binge. When I am in control of my food choices I eat everything, and will sometimes plan for days to be able to get away with it. I feel rebellious and defiant, screw diets I’m eating. Not guilty at all. But it’s only a “disorder” if it causes that person a problem, right?

  • I’ve never really understood why people binge, like if your not hungry just don’t eat. Eat normally and until your full, it’s what I do. I eat 700-900 cals a day and it’s well enough, trust me. And I weigh 55.4 kgs, I’m like over weight too. And don’t get me wrong, I was diagnosed with severe anxiety, severe depression and ASPD by my doctor.

  • I starve myself all day and i just binge on fruit at night. Is this healthy? I dont think it is… I was afraid this was a sign of BED I hope it isnt…I never gain weight tho. Thts kinda weird.

  • that’s just how I feel about my binge drinking… shame and guild, restricting yourself on a ‘diet’, thinking about it all day, and fail.. and thinking: oh well, I failed now, I can even fail hard. What’s the difference? Why do they treat these 2 illments so different when they are the same?

  • In this flush after the binge day…nothing but fluids…. Flushing the sodium means flushing potassium as well since sodium potassium go hand in hand. The greens are great bc they have potassium in them. Just make sure you use them. Dropping the high sodium and sugars help but if you don’t restore you will feel bad for a couple days or even have negative side effects

  • I love your channel! We have quite a bit in common. I dont get hungry its so odd.. im thin and I sometimes binge eat to point of being in pain.. i notice binge eating is emotional. U ALSO DIDN GET HUNGRY EITHER! THANK GOD❤ this is a blessing! Now I can take notes and try and recognize when I’m hungry.. i have so many allergies too.. so its such work.. but this vid is so great! I dont intentionally not eat I jus rarely get hungry!! I also deal w anxiety!❤��

  • Thank you so much I never realized it was a real disorder problem I always thought it was just me and I knew that there was food addiction but I never knew it like this

  • Tiffany, you are an incredibly sweet woman with such a warm heart, and every time I watch your videos I feel so loved, and like I am deserving of self-love as well. Especially with topics like this, I think a tender and understanding approach is much, much better than shaming, which I see too often. I’ve felt so much shame and self-hatred because of my overeating, and sometimes hearing people tell me how to fix it seems like they’re trying to fix me as a person, and that can make me feel like I’m broken. But taking care of myself includes eating in a way that takes care of my body, but even if I mess up, I still have self-worth. This video reminded me of that. It’s still an ongoing battle but it’s encouraging to know there are people like you who reach others like this and are fully aware of God’s love for each and every one of us.

  • If we remember that alcohol is a sugar, albeit partially ‘pre-digested’ by the fermentation bacteria, then it makes perfect sense that many alcoholics who quit drinking would replace alcohol with sugar!

  • Can it go away and come back? Like I binge ate when I was in middle school but when I got into high school it stopped but I’ve started binging again since corona has started(I’m a junior now)

  • I’m embarrassed all I do is eat I’m only 12 years old old sugar in the house and I’m ashamed of myself I need help recurrent episodes of binge eating defines been mostly peanut butter I just get the spoon in and keep eating out of the peanut butter jar whenever I see food I eat and a lot when I’m alone cuz I’m embarrassed but my mom will find out

  • I fear my eating disorder will never be healed. I feel like no other safety tool or coping mechanism measures up to the feeling of dissociation and fullness. I want it too so bad but if anyone has any coping mechanisms that help I would love some suggestions

  • Hey Tiffany,
    These tips sound like they could help and I’ll try to incorporate them when ever I feel the urge to binge.
    I have problem. I feel fearful and uncomfortable eating infront of strangers and I will go to all lengths to not eat in public. This fear is starting to effect how I feel eating with my family. Does anyone here experience this or has so in the past, it would be helpful know how to some tips to help combat this.

  • I binge to cope with trauma, I guess. I hate that I do it but I can’t stop doing it, even if I want to (I do). It doesn’t help that my mom calls me fat. Basically all I do every day is watch the iz pilot again, eat, and then cry. It’s pretty unepic, gamers *sad whip nae nae*

  • The worst time in my life I’d eat an entire chocolate cake and gallon of milk every day for weeks on end. I feel so ashamed and I still carry that weight on me. Part of mine has to do with sexual abuse. I guess I wanted to make myself unattractive.

  • My dad and aunt have BED and I think that’s why I have an eating disorder now but I’m not sure. Anyone wanna explain if family members having ED’s correlates with another family member having an ED

  • Hi gurls! Lol. I totally stress eat. Pop corn is my go to. Also, from childhood I was always told not to waste food. Now, I can’t seem to leave when I am not hungry.

  • This is the first time that I am talking about this. I went through a traumatic episode and I literally doubled my total weight. I binge eat out of control. Where do I start? What do I do? Please help! I am really ruined.

  • I’ve been binging since childhood. But I can count on one hand how many times I did made myself throw up after a particularly big binge meal. You said that if you purge, then it falls into another category. But, where do I fall into?

  • I’ve gone back onto Venelefaxine (thank you covid induced anxiety) and I’ve found I don’t binge eat anymore? I’ve gone from constantly eating til I’m sick to being content with three meals and a few snacks. I can’t find any links for BED and treatment with ADs

  • My dad and aunt have BED and I think that’s why I have an eating disorder now but I’m not sure. Anyone wanna explain if family members having ED’s correlates with another family member having an ED

  • I hate this. Falling down these rabbit holes…
    I’m quickly realizing I’m just fat and lazy. I don’t fit any of these descriptions and other vids of depression. I don’t feel shame about any of this stuff…what if I need to find my shame?

  • OMG, Kati, “obesity” is NOT an eating disorder! It is NOT BED! They are not the same thing. Your videos are so ignorant on the subject of eating disorders. Please refer people to ED treatment professionals, experts, which bluntly, you are not. You don’t get to just make stuff up.

  • my binge triggers: feeling lonely, sad, stressed, scared, empty. lack of energy. boredom. weight. negativity. when unhealthy food is available

  • Exercise is absolutely key. Try to use a kitchen with someone that binge eats 24 hours a day. It is impossible. You will not be able to diagnose with people that DO NOT have the ability do look at themselves objectively. It will not happen.

  • once I lost all my weight 60 pounds down I’m afraid to eat food because ill gain it alll back my mom just tells me to get over it but like I know I don’t eat enough I’m 120 pounds Its like I beet my self up for eating one meal my. mom did have an eating disorder I don’t want one

  • I do this I’ve been when I want food so badly and I’m trying to fight against it I feel like crying because I want it so bad and I’m getting really big and I’m just getting so depressed yeah I can’t stop binge eating

  • Totally agree with all the recent comments. Everyone binges at some time. Stress, depression, upsets, can’t find any other food, food deserts (no healthy food options in a town/suburb). People who are stressed or having mental health issues or eating disorders are not going to be helped by this hyped up misinformation. Click on Dr Oz’s videos on the Whole 30. Maybe we will get better advice there.

  • I Binge Eat, for Emotional reasons, it will amaze you in Pyscology, the actuality of your deeper issues, definitely is complicated.

  • hi i am from Pakistan and i love your content. i am also struggling to become efficient Clinical psychologist. i want to say that your way of teaching is amazing. i am learning a lot thankyou

  • I am extremely over weight (400 lbs) and i have been diagnosed with B.E.D i have never found the proper treatment. I also have CPTSD (childhood sexual abuse of 6 years) localized or generalized Dissociative Amnesia. anxiety,depression, BP2 and BPD. I feel so lost and alone

  • I lost weight, went to a doctor, was happy..until pandemic, recovered most of the weight, stopped exercising, eat badly..i feel really anxious and bad about this i thought i could controlled it but it won over me:'(

  • Can it go away and come back? Like I binge ate when I was in middle school but when I got into high school it stopped but I’ve started binging again since corona has started(I’m a junior now)

  • I had this and got over it. Partly because I was eventually put off by eating the same things compulsively. To fill a void and it was my emotional companion whether I was happy stressed or sad. I never gained a huge amount of weight. My family would be surprised to know I didn’t gain even more. They would have never have thought; you’d think I wouldn’t have maintained a normal weight. I would always make time during my busy days, to buy Starbucks, from the vending machine, shops.. anyplace where I could get snacks. I would hide my wrappers in my bag to throw in the bin on the way to school not obviously use the bins at home. I would do anything to hide it. Once my brother was like what are those crumbs on your bed? I was like I don’t know I just brushed it off. Eventually I just lost that connection. Now I love other things like listening to music. I was just bored lonely. There was a peak and then it was eventually slowing down to the point where hardly anything happened.

  • Nice video.find it useful..will add gud points from it in my routine..
    Earlier i use to drink half a litre of water next day of overeating..by boiling cumin fennel and corriander seeds powder each half spoon in it..its also effective

  • Hey how’s it going I hope all is well. I myself dealt with binge eating for about seven years.. It’s fucking horrible but I learned how to control it and I’ve had lost 60 pounds and got probably the best shape of my life!! I even made a YouTube page dedicated to my journey if anyone is interested check it out!!

  • I have the disorder but didn’t know it was a thing i just looked it up and now i know why im so chubby asking myself how did i get like this…. This is why im currently tryna lose weight kinda hard when your 11 but to graduate 164 pounds and born into a fat despressed family… Im actully starting the water fast wont be hard since i dont like and usually dont eat infront of my family or anyone..

  • I think about food all day.
    I skip breakfast and lunch and sometimes dinner (I starve myself) and then the next day I’ll binge eat anything within arms reach until I feel so bloated and guilty I just want to throw it all up.

    The next day to compensate for the guilt of what I ate yesterday, I’ll starve myself again as punishment.

    And so the cycle continues.

    It’s been over a year now, and I know it’s not healthy but it’s sooo hard to break the cycle and eat sensibly.

    This video helped but I feel like I’m not strong enough to change my mindset..Im optimistic about the giving thanks part thoughI’m too used to just being so hungry I’ll shove food in my mouth without a second thought to Who provided it. If I’m more grateful for my food I’ll be more likely to go easy and savour it rather than hurriedly consume more than my body actually needs.

  • Overeating and binging are two totally different things. They both are fake news especially with promoting a laxative. You’re basically telling someone to purge, this is dangerous especially for someone who has BED.

  • I do this I’ve been when I want food so badly and I’m trying to fight against it I feel like crying because I want it so bad and I’m getting really big and I’m just getting so depressed yeah I can’t stop binge eating

  • Thank you so much for this video! I could relate to EVERYTHING you said. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more understood, especially the part where if you restrict yourself of a certain food, ALL you do is think about it and that’s so annoying. Usually when I explain to people why eating is such a struggle for me or just research about it online, I am directed to other diets or exercise routines. I really don’t want to diet anymore, because when you’re on a diet, all you think about is food and that leaves room for nothing else. Besides, like you said, I want to be able to enjoy food without panicing about my weight. It’s ironic how the fear of getting fat is what causes us to focus on food so much and overeat. You adressed the core issues that need to be adressed. Every single tip seemed to be meant for me, ao thank you sooooooo much! I will do my best to practice them <3

  • i dont know if I have this disorder. but I have struggled with binge eating and i am recovering from ortherexia and after all the restricting, i am scared to restrict now because i am scared of binge eating. but if i say no to one thing my mental state goes CRAZY and it gets triggered easy and I can control it. its always at night after dinner. tonight was triggered by my sister making cookies and i was out of my routine.

  • I fear my eating disorder will never be healed. I feel like no other safety tool or coping mechanism measures up to the feeling of dissociation and fullness. I want it too so bad but if anyone has any coping mechanisms that help I would love some suggestions

  • Took me nearly 2 months to lose 5-6 lbs.
    When I ve a crisis in life I comfort eat, overeat like mad and put all the weight back on in 2 weeks! ������

  • I’ve never been diagnosed but I can’t really feel full and I eat a lot and I took it from my mom. I can’t really control it when I can it’s hard, especially at party, I’ve ate so much once I threw up and most of the time I feel like throwing up
    I want to stop so bad, it’s getting much better tho I’m overweight and I’ve been eating Much less

  • I still remember the day we were all called down to the nurses office to get our weight ins, shot check ups, ect. & I remember I got my hearing test, my eye test and through both of them I couldn’t focus because I seen kids stepping on a scale and the nurse yelling out their weight to a lady with a clip board about 15 feet away. I finally got to the line and felt myself getting physically sick.. I went up to the nurse and said, “please be quiet, I don’t want people to know I asked you but please don’t tell my weight.” & she said, loudly, “Don’t y’all your weight, Ohh, umm, okay?!” I stepped on after almost passing out from embarrassment and she walked over about 5 feet and ‘whispered loudly’ wit her hand to her mouth as she said my weight. I felt the worst go through my ears like nails in a chalk board. I still feel FUCKING SICK. I was maybe in 1/2 grade. Kids destroyed me by calling me names! I wasn’t even that big. God. This world sucks.

  • This week I pinged eating 4 times I ate 4 medium pizza’s and so many other junk foods I struggle with sleeping so I’m awake also at night and I feel so stressed lately I’m a senior and I must get high grades and my parents always tell me to lose weight and study hard and I do nothing useful. I just feel so fucking angry. I struggle with migraine and it’s sucks because it hurts so much and I never talk about it because when I do my mom always says from that damn phone and starts yelling at me I take medication for my migraine but it seems not working when I’m pressured Also I do have PTSD I wasn’t aware of it effecting me that much but when I was younger I was abused and lately every time I rest it just hit me with flashbacks and I memorize everything I’ve never told anyone because I have no one also that fact I’m gay just ruins everything for me is just like life doesn’t want me to live normally and happy

  • Every time I feel down or alone all I want is food or if someone makes fun of me I’ll go to the cupboard and eat everything I eat soooo much and never feel full I told my mom about this and she ignored it because she doesn’t know what’s wrong but I do and I honestly want help I just don’t know what to do ����And it turns out I’ve been doing this since I was 6 and never knew what it was

  • Now that I think of it, I think I may have BED. For years whenever I get stressed, I just eat lots of whatever food I feel like scavenging down in my house. Then afterward, I feel really awful. If I am craving something and especially if I am stressed, it will be gone. I am naturally thin with a high metabolism so nobody can tell. I am scared of my metabolism slowing down and me getting bigger or my heart getting worse and I become unable to tell until it’s too late. I am young but I have been doing this since I was like 8 or 9. How could I have never realized?!?! My goodness…

  • I’ve gone back onto Venelefaxine (thank you covid induced anxiety) and I’ve found I don’t binge eat anymore? I’ve gone from constantly eating til I’m sick to being content with three meals and a few snacks. I can’t find any links for BED and treatment with ADs

  • this happens to me for a couple months every year… i always have to wait until no one is around so i can binge. i can’t stop thinking about food and even when i just ate so much i feel nauseous, i start to make another meal…

  • I still remember the day we were all called down to the nurses office to get our weight ins, shot check ups, ect. & I remember I got my hearing test, my eye test and through both of them I couldn’t focus because I seen kids stepping on a scale and the nurse yelling out their weight to a lady with a clip board about 15 feet away.

  • that’s just how I feel about my binge drinking… shame and guild, restricting yourself on a ‘diet’, thinking about it all day, and fail.. and thinking: oh well, I failed now, I can even fail hard. What’s the difference? Why do they treat these 2 illments so different when they are the same?

  • Stop trying to sell these fake bs hacks. They don’t work. Should be focused on fixing the real problem. Try developing a healthy lifestyle, not finding the quickest way to make you hate the health industry more because a hack end up making you gain more weight in the end

  • Gluttony seems to be a sin that Christians like to ignore. We are often quick to label smoking and drinking as sins, but for some reason gluttony is accepted or at least tolerated. Many of the arguments used against smoking and drinking, such as health and addiction, apply equally to overeating. Many believers would not even consider having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette but have no qualms about gorging themselves at the dinner table. This should not be!

    Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.”

    Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2, 2 Peter 1:5-7, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, and 2 Corinthians 10:5.) The ability to say “no” to anything in excess—self-control—is one of the fruits of the Spirit common to all believers (Galatians 5:22).

    God has blessed us by filling the earth with foods that are delicious, nutritious, and pleasurable. We should honor God’s creation by enjoying these foods and by eating them in appropriate quantities. God calls us to control our appetites, rather than allowing them to control us.

  • I erm, I’m young. and I’m not obsese. I’m actually around 130 and I’m a minor. I believe I have a binge-eating disorder, currently I’m under quarantine and I want to seek help. I never can stop eating though out the day, even when I’m full. I eat so many times a day and even when I’m trying to stop myself, I still go back and eat the rest of the box or pizza, and right after I just am so stressed and worried all of the time I can’t stop it and I’m gaining wait. I can’t stop eating until I’m so full I feel horrible and I feel so insecure and disgusted with myself. sorry, I just.. needed to say that

  • once I lost all my weight 60 pounds down I’m afraid to eat food because ill gain it alll back my mom just tells me to get over it but like I know I don’t eat enough I’m 120 pounds Its like I beet my self up for eating one meal my. mom did have an eating disorder I don’t want one

  • yesterday and today I spent $70 on junk food whenever I have money I spend it on 5 days on food and when im broke I make home at food but I make it fried and I eat for like 4 people… it took me 4 months to lose 30 pounds gym and healthy eating and I gain it all back in a month. I don’t know how to stop

  • I’ve never really understood why people binge, like if your not hungry just don’t eat. Eat normally and until your full, it’s what I do. I eat 700-900 cals a day and it’s well enough, trust me. And I weigh 55.4 kgs, I’m like over weight too. And don’t get me wrong, I was diagnosed with severe anxiety, severe depression and ASPD by my doctor.

  • I can relate so much, i eat food when im bored…normally i ate really good and healty food,but some day i really wake up wanting chocate cookie,tuc,cereal and a loooot of candies….and then i felt so gulty. You video was really intresting, i’ll get your advise. And from an italian, pasta tomato souce and cheese..is just the best things ever xD.

  • I used to binge eat every day and every night for about 2 years until I gained 30 kgs and realized that I am still depressed. I realised that eating won’t make me feel better in the long term and it’s much better to feel hungry or sad and face the reality of life instead of eating your emotions because that’s just a waste of time and money, you can eat and eat but nothing will fill that void in your heart.

  • This is great advice! I did those same things! It took me so long to really accept that I was eating my feelings! More frequent meals -yes! I heard that on your high anxiety video. These tips really work!! I started them a few weeks ago and I’m really feeling less anxiety in general and no guilt when I leave a half a biscuit on my plate!

  • hi i am from Pakistan and i love your content. i am also struggling to become efficient Clinical psychologist. i want to say that your way of teaching is amazing. i am learning a lot thankyou

  • I think about food all day.
    I skip breakfast and lunch and sometimes dinner (I starve myself) and then the next day I’ll binge eat anything within arms reach until I feel so bloated and guilty I just want to throw it all up.

    The next day to compensate for the guilt of what I ate yesterday, I’ll starve myself again as punishment.

    And so the cycle continues.

    It’s been over a year now, and I know it’s not healthy but it’s sooo hard to break the cycle and eat sensibly.

  • Thank you so much I never realized it was a real disorder problem I always thought it was just me and I knew that there was food addiction but I never knew it like this

  • This video of yours was sooo, so helpful to me and flew into my life at the exact right time. I’ve been doing so well, but all of a sudden I’m backsliding like a crazy person. Bless you. And thank you for this video.

  • I totally haven’t mastered yet, but I’m getting better and I want to share some things that have helped me. Sometimes I don’t eat enough at meals, and when that happens, I want snacks all day. Name sure you eat enough, especially at breakfast, and if you get hungry between meals plan out healthy snacks instead if eating whatever is closest and easiest to eat. Don’t leave junk food out where you can see it, and keep the food away from where you spend time in your house. If you eat wasn’t to eat something and you know you shouldn’t, take a walk outside. You’ll be away from food, you’ll be getting exercise, and if you take time to enjoy you’re surroundings, you’ll feel better without eating. If you want to know if you’re actually hungry or just emotional, ask yourself if you would eat raw broccoli it an apple. If so, eat a healthy snack. If not, you’re emotionally hungry and you need to figure out what’s really bothering you and deal with it. My favorite saying about overeating is this: Face your stuff, don’t stuff your face!

  • I am a chocoholic. I could easily put it down to abandoment issues however no matter if i am happy, sad, glad or mad i can’t stop snacking. Its not an issue with food its snacks like chocolate, buscuits, sweets, fizzy and etc. Before Covid 19 i was going gym all the time and i used to go jogging every morning but now i can’t motivate myself to work out at home. I have a fantasy of what i want to look like and everytime i almost reach my goal i screw up by eating dozens of snacks again. I can eat 4 chocolate bars one after an other and still want more after.

  • This video of yours was sooo, so helpful to me and flew into my life at the exact right time. I’ve been doing so well, but all of a sudden I’m backsliding like a crazy person. Bless you. And thank you for this video.

  • well i drink 2 liters of water in 55 seconds….. so i could in theory drink another 1.5 liters and i would be fine?… ok! time to do this!!
