A strategy adapted from Marlatt and Gordon’s (1985) addiction treatment manual can be helpful in achieving this goal.118 This strategy involves employing acceptance-oriented imagery to cope with urges—termed “urge-surfing”—in order to teach clients that food cravings will eventually subside if not acted upon.

  • 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!!

  • I can do so well one week, eat healthy and not starve myself, but then I just find myself eating and eating and eating and eating and I don’t know what to do anymore, I’m stuck in a cycle,why can’t I stop myself, why?? I seriously see myself gaining weight, and cry and cry and cry, yesterday I just planned to go back eating well, but ended up eating a ton, now writing this about to sleep thinking the exact same thing, that I’m going to go back eating healthy and I know I will not be able to control myself again, I hate the number on the scale, I hate the image in the mirror, yet I’m the one preventing myself from achieving happiness, I’m my worst enemy.

  • i lost weight last months thats why im binge eating right now and i cant stop thinking that i deserve it because i did great. now im back to zero

  • 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 ❤

  • 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’m not a Doctor, so maybe what I say holds no weight. But coming from someone who has struggled with binge eating for years, classifying foods as healthy and unhealthy can be a really dangerous thing to do. Food is just food, and if you’re eating appropriate portions and savoring them in the moment, I don’t think there’s anything unhealthy about that. My therapist told me the way that you word things can dramatically affect the outcome and when I labeled food as healthy and unhealthy, it lead to food shame and then restriction and then bingeing again.

  • 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..

  • I am really fighting this right now there is such a sigma do on males with eating disorders I lost over 150lb now I gaining all back ��

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Greetings! Why do we feel the urge to binge when we watch tv, movies or sports ( football etc), as we are very anxious? Is that binge eating disorder too? Why do we binge especially crackers, peanuts, chips, etc, even if we are not hungry, but we still feel hungry after that?
    Can anyone with an eating disorder be crazy enough to deliberately Hurt his mouth or teeth, or even burn his mouth stomach and esophagus with sth, in order to not eat any more? What Is he doing then, when he Can binge no more bc of significant pain?
    When do you know if you have an eating disorder or you just eat more from non pathologichal reasons?

  • 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.

  • 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 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 might have BED, im not sure but i cant just see anyone since it costs too much:/ and weekly binges…idk..im barely realizing this

  • 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! ����

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • hello everyone… I also posted a video about this and how I overcame binge eating! Would love it if you checked it out! Send you all the best xxx

  • I have the strict twin and all or nothing twin. It stars with me restricting myself to not have anything that’s too unhealthy, but then someone in my family will offer me something sweet like a pastry or ice cream and it becomes hard for me to say no. So then because I’ve restricted myself so hard, I really want that sweet thing. So I think to myself “I’ll only have this small pastry and then no sweets for a few weeks”. But after I’ve had it, I’m like “well… I’ve already eaten unhealthy today…might as well get over with it and start fresh tomorrow”. And I just keep on thinking like “I’ll eat what I want this week, but when school starts I’ll quit” but then after going to school for like a week I eat one unhealthy thing and it all goes down hill. And then I feel like shit after because I shouldn’t have ate all that unhealthy stuff. And I restrict myself once again and then it starts over, like an evil circle. The hardest part is when I’m trying to eat better but my family keeps offering me sweets and unhealthy stuff, and then I feel pressured into eating it. I can’t say no. And I don’t want them to know that I want to loose weight because I feel like it’s a taboo thing.

  • Something that instantly got rid of my binge eating disorder was just to stop weighing myself every single day. I never knew that it would be so easy for me to stop binge eating. Since I stopped weighing myself I haven’t had a binge eating day at all and I am so proud ��.

  • I am eating healthy but am living in a house with people who have very bad eating habits. There is junk food everywhere in the kitchen. The problem is that I don’t have a lot of ideas of what to eat to stay healthy. And sometimes I am hungry and binge and then feel so guilty.

  • Great video. I’ve struggled with binge eating and bulimia most my life. Most people dont know because I train for Ironmans and I walk around with muscle at less than 6% bodyfat. I can stay in a calorie deficit and work in “junk” food into my diet and stay inshape. But then something will happen and the all or nothing side of me will trigger me to eat 15,000+ calories. Then the next day I’ll eat nothing and ride 100 miles on my bike or go run 20 miles and make myself throw up and it’s a never ending cycle. I say all of this because I want anyone reading this to know eating disorders dont stop when you reach your “ideal” body type. I’m absolutely shredded and have a similar body to zach effron from baywatch and I still deal with this. These issues are very deep and hopefully my comment will help others realize it doesnt just end when you get “inshape”.

  • My anxiety and OCD have
    become a LOT worse since we watched my Mom die a horrific death from cancer last year. So anorexia in my early twenties has now shown up as binge eating disorder at 40 and I am so lost. Working with a therapist but not seeing much progress so far.

  • The only way I can stop binging on junk food or food that is not nutritious is not to buy it or have it in the house or else I will binge on it until it is gone.

  • 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

  • My obsession with food is a punishment to me. It’s not fun or cute, it’s not a “i love food” trend.. I can’t stop eating, I unconsciously bury my face in huge amounts of food & eat way past fullness. I eat till it hurts and i feel disgusting. And after that it doesn’t take me long till my next meal ( mind you that i consume about 4 meals a day, each meal is big, excluding snacks). Also I don’t eat because I’m hungry most of the times. And I feel guilt on a daily basis, regularly, after eating and after looking at the mirror.
    The past five months I’ve gained crazy amount of weight (about 8 kgs). My struggle with food have started a long time ago but I just didn’t notice because there was no obvious changes in my body. I am currently above average weight for my height and age. I can’t fit in 90% of my clothing. I keep comparing myself to my skinny friends on daily basis and that brings a lot of mental destruction for me and it adds up to my low self-confidence, meaning that it makes me more self-conscious and hateful towards my body. I believe I have binge eating disorder because I have all of its symptoms. I’ve been trying to start recovery on my own but it’s just so hard because I find myself giving up to food before even starting. I also believe that my relationship with food is very toxic, it is literally the meaning of love-hate relationship. Eating makes me happy but I’m unhappy when I eat.

  • I just ended watching the video and I couldn’t help but cry cause I really wanna go out of this, I really want to get rid of binge eating cause it’s so tormenting and it is making me feel more weak every time and I just want it to stop. I want to live a day where I don’t have to worry about how am I gonna feel after every meal. Thank you so much for this, words really encourage and motivate, I’m gonna give my two hundred percent to be stronger.

  • whenever i decide to start losing weight, someone in my parents’ friend group always comments how i’m starting to look smaller. & i panic & gain double of what i lost. even writing this now makes me want to eat and i don’t know why that is.

    my mind is all over the place. sometimes i’ll get anxious & i forget to eat. some days i overeat until i’m uncomfortably full. i eat when i don’t want to. for every extreme negative emotion, i eat.

  • what i understand from this is that we need to pause and think about every move and try to make it a healthy move until its natural

  • I will change NOW. Not tomorrow or next week but now. Reply to this comment to encourage me or to ask me for updates:)) I have 50 lbs to lose

  • Sadia’s Video is amazing but personally when I was recovering I found this one helpful. I love Sadia though her Chanel is so amazing a also if you see this I love your Chanel and message https://youtu.be/SQFPaEQpcv8

  • I recently recovered from this and I wanted to say that to whoever is going through it, it will get better. But just trust your body, trust that you don’t need to be skinny and also try intuitive eating. Try to eat when you are hungry and include everything in your diet, fat, protein, carbohydrates, veg, fruit, If you look. Just know that you don’t have to overthink eating, just eat and make what you binge normal. If you binge biscuits and cookies and cereal like I used to then I suggest you try to have your usual breakfast and then a biscuit at the end. You may get triggered and binge sometimes but if you feel normal and you want the cookie eat it and enjoy it and show yourself some love. Just have everything in your diet so instead of having “cheat days” you have sweets anyway and veg and fruit and everything in between everyday so that you don’t feel the need to binge because your body realises that it gets what it wants. In the process of binging try to realise that you are doing it and try to investigate why you are. This really helped me. It took me around a good month to quit for good. Be patient and be kind to yourself. You have to binge eat to quit binge eating. Also this video is really good but please Sadia talk about the meaning of beauty because body image influenced me a lot and I thought I was not good enough so I would love to see someone to say that beauty is what you make it. You decide the definition of beauty to you.

  • hello everyone… I also posted a video about this and how I overcame binge eating! Would love it if you checked it out! Send you all the best xxx

  • NOBODY AND I MEAN NOBODY would look at me and think I overeat and binge. It makes sense like I look skinny and I guess I would say I am but that’s after a few intense workouts throughout the day, But the only thing on my mind is food. Ugh fuck life at this point

  • Thank you for the info.. just starting out on my journey to a healthier life after coming to the realization that I have a real problem with food! Often times I find myself obsessing over what I’m going to eat later and almost counting down to when I get to eat. Or waiting until my husband goes to sleep so I can binge eat and he can’t see it happen �� it’s funny but also horrible. Lol so thank you!! I’ve been needing to hear this for a long time..

  • Great video! It was really helpful for understanding on a more personal level. Could you (or anyone for that matter) point me toward research articles that go into the psychological treatment of BED, as opposed to just the epidemiological and efficacy of CBT.

  • It’s hard to not eat stuff when you’re just depressed i mean. Feeling happy is rare for me, most of my day is just a mirky gray sludge of time i want to pass so i can go to sleep.

  • I’ve been trying for years to workout and eat 3 meals a day with maybe 2 snacks.. idk what’s wrong with me tho..no matter what I NEED TO EAT 24/7 and its sucks:(( I started working out this week ( 3 times a week) and I’ve been binge eating more than before…

  • I have been in both the 12-step programme for Over Eaters Anonymous, OA and the Food Addicts Anonymous, FAA. It was in Sweden, but it is available in all countries and most cities. Maybe it can help someone.

  • Omg i just love u soooooo muchhhhhh for making this video!!! OK like most of the stuff u said applies to me and oh gosh u make so so much sense I can’t waittttt to put these helpful tips to action! Thank you so muchhhh!

  • Hi sorry if it is a lot to ask but I badly needed a support person. You see I have no many friends so if your willing then you are a God sent angel to me. Don’t worry I won’t do anything to offend you, I just really need you.

  • Wow, she’s really good. As a LMSW therapist, my hats off to you Dr. Tracey. I just found your channel and I’m a fan. Very well described…not too much and not too little.

  • Thank you for the tips. While I have heard all of them before, you presented them in a clear short summarized version that makes it seem pretty simple (not easy…). While these may not work every time I feel a binge cooking on, I think you’re right when you say with time and practice it will eventually yield results. Thanks again!

  • I only eat at 12 in the afternoon and at 7pm or only at 12 and fast till the next day.. I only eat 1000 calories or 2000 total each day.

  • In my experience the best thing that helps me is the mindful eating, not focusing too much on weight loss and body image and eating nutritious foods.

  • 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

  • Mine started with bed, eventually it turned into bulimia and anorexia and now im stuck back here and trying to stay with bed and convince myself not to go back to purging

  • Thank you for this video. I find that few videos address the emotional side of binging. My big issue is evil twin number 2. If I am going to fall off the wagon, I might as well fall off completely.

  • You see, i never thought i am actually binge eating before i saw this video. I really eat a lot, and being locked fown at home is really a big struggle cause i browse the internet a lot and all these people are selling online foods that are really appetizing and i know it’s not their fault it is their soirce of income but i do not have self control and i even tried to exercise but i am still fat. And all the fats are going in to my arms and not on my stomach which frustrates me even more! I hate how these people around me makes me feel that each and every day i am fat. And when i try not to eat my parents will scold me for not eating saying that i am just picky when in reality i jist really don’t wanna binge eating. I need help.

  • With me it’s not even craving food, it’s just like something takes over and I just start stuffing what ever is easy into my mouth. I’ve gotten better and I keep easy to eat fruit and vegetables on hand so when it happens at least I’m getting something nutritious in, instead of crisps or something.

    1. Watch your words to stop self-identifying with binge eating habits (ego prevents you from giving up your belief of self-identity)
    Use past tense: “I used to…” instead of “I am…”
    Visualize what the ideal you would do something realistic that you can consistently keep up
    2. Avoid trigger food when down
    Alleviate your state: talk to someone, watch a comedy, make a drink,…
    Enjoy the “trigger food” when you’re happy to break the association between feeling down and the food
    3. Separate yourself from evil twins: strict twin, all-or-nothing twin
    Listen to your inner dialogue: the twins are not you
    Use the word “nourish”: will the food nourish me?
    4. Don’t “Should” on yourself you would rebel yourself
    Say “could” (option) instead of “should” (demand)
    5. Talk to someone you trust
    Emotions, feelings, triggers, what worked before

  • Just don’t buy unhealthy food or snacks. There won’t be any temptation if there isn’t anything for you to eat.
    I often find myself eating when I am bored or watching a TV show, its hard to stop. I will try hard to have a healthier diet and mindset

  • I’m 15 and I have always been an emotional eater. But for the past three years(I started dieting), I’ve been binging. So much so I feel like my insides are going to tear. It hurts, but I just can’t stop. I eat and eat and eat. I can’t seem to get it under control

  • I listened to 3 different videos about this topic from 3 different specialist and only this video makes complete sense and is relateable. I really enjoyed the points made in the video especially relating to the inadequacy we can feel when comparing our selves to the body goals of social meida. I feel so like I’m not ever going to be the ideal and constantly couting calories and it fustrates me to the point where I break out and binge then go back on a diet the next day. Its an exhausting cycle. Thank you so much for this video. I really appreciate this video and its content! Love you work xxx

  • I never feel hungry and I never feel full, that may seem like it would be easier to be healthy but im kinda anorexic and have never had good eating habits

  • So i have insulin resistance and my doctor told me I can eat the “main carbs” only twice a week, and so when those two days come, I just eat. I feel disgusting and sick later, and I really do not know what to do. Some times I even binge to try to satisfy my cravings for carbs, so I just binge on things that I can eat. I love my body so much and I just wonder why the heck do I keep doing this to myself.Tried not to make it long and I hope you will come to my comment. Keep in mind I am only 13

  • Well. At least I know now I have an ED I think I have for a long time i just never really thought it was a problem because my weight wasnt too high. But this year is the most weight I’ve gained in my life and I’m scared if I dont do somthing I’ll become obese and have heart issues. I want to stop so bad but it’s so hard. Also I do love eating fresh healthy salads but I’ll just keep eating and eating all day even if I feel like I’ll burst.

  • Thank you for sharing your beautiful videos! I am so impressed with how much wisdom you have and how you are a role model for those of us that want to live happy and healthy lives! I had a debilitating eating disorder, but through years of work I have become FREE! Thank God for support and for people who understand. Here is my story in case you want to check it out. With Love, Donna ❤ @

  • I found this so so useful! I love the part where you said focus on what you should be eating rather than what you shouldn’t! This is something I’m definitely starting to do because it makes you feel much less restricted! Thank you so so much! I’d love if you could check my What I Eat In A Day videos and give me some tips on my diet I’d really appreciate it!!

  • Help mehhhhhh. Even if i dont eat or eat only 1000 calories a day I gain weight and idk what to do!!! �� i eat really healthy but i always gain weight

  • im not even fucking HUNGRY! i just keep eating i cant stop and its so terrible. i eat till the point of wanting to fricking throw up and i have emataphobia as wellbut i dont want to self diagnose.:(

  • i’m struggling! especially during covid I definitely developed really bad habits of eating ):

    i went to the doctors and he said that i gained 20 lbs in the span on 2 months.. it hurts realizing i’ve gained so much! It’s emotionally draining now, upsetting and it hurts realizing that I don’t think I can control this! send prayers please! ��

  • 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 don’t know whether my prob. Is related to binge eating.
    Earlier I was so concerned about my weight. Therefore I started dieting and happily I lost 8 kgs in a short period. Later that I gave myself a break and started eating normal (I was still restricted sugar and junk food)
    But after some time, I started craving food alot and specially sweets. The main problem is that, I don’t feel full even though I eat alot more than others.
    So it’s been one month and now I’ve gained 3kgs more.
    I’m so depressed ��

    I became a binge eater when l heard on a current affair segment on TV about people who get more food for their money by stockpiling a lot of half price stuff. Now l have 2 pantries full of food and 1 pantry full of juice and soft drink, and l have bags of food under my kitchen table. Then Covid -19 came about and it got worse as l started making homemade meals with flour, milk and eggs, like making omelettes and pancakes. I spend $600 a month on groceries. And about $100 on ordering take away over the phone and have it delivered to my home.

  • It’s so hard literally all I think about is eating food or food in general but I really wanna eat healthy and get in shapes I’m tired of letting food take over my life

  • The thing is that I always feel hungry, I don’t feel I’m full and go on. I feel hungry ( or anxious) empty and can’t feel calm until I eat a lot of carbs

  • Lately (since the start of corona quarantine) I’ve been eating at least 3,500 calories a day (I maintain at 1,600). And it made me gain more than 20 pounds and gave me super bad skin because of all the junk food… I watched this today and I will use these tips. I’m super optimistic and hope I can actually go back to eating normally (not have 8 chocolate bars and half a jar of Nutella a day!). I’ll come back in a month and let y’all know if these tips helped or not, thanks for the video!

  • I’m not sure if I have binge eating disorder, I just eat too much, more than normal people. In just a day I ate a whole bucket of ice cream, and it’s not the first time. But I don’t care that much about eating in front of others, and I’m a what I would call “normally insecure” with my body… I really don’t know.

  • I do good all day and I’m happy to be eating food that’s good for my body but i work until 10 pm and after dinner around 6pm I’m full until like 8:30 then i see cookies laying in the break room or what have you and then i have one then i get mad and just eat anything else i can find because I’m already mad that i ate the cookies

  • you have no idea how much i needed to hear these words, i am only 16 yet i have struggled with a binge eating disorder for as long as i can remember, you’re like the big sister i never had ♡´・ᴗ・`♡

  • Hey guys! If you have a moment, check out @cinnamon_raisin on instagram! I just started the page today as a space for self-love. It would mean a lot if you gave it a follow:)

  • I used to throw up after eating when I was really insecure and lost so much weight
    But then I was able to overcome the purging

    I developed a bad habit of binging and I am now double the weight I was when I would purge
    I don’t know how to stop

  • I feel disgusting I hate food I fucking hate it. But i can’t help it and I can’t stop. Whenever someone points it out all I say is “we all die one day. Just let me eat what I want.” But then I feel so guilty. The worst part is the feeling fullness after.

  • The way to stop binge eating forever is to re-program the subconscious mind. I overcame a 31 year intense struggle with bulimia, not by food plans, will power, or therapy, but by deleting the negative programs in my subconscious mind and replacing them with new programs. I have been binge free and struggle free for 6 years now!

  • I am so ready to stop my binging and self help, it’s the last thing in my life REALLY holding me back from everything I want out of life but my habits are so deep and such routine, I don’t know how to stop it. I don’t know how to help.

  • Thank you so much! I’m only 13 but I binge eat…it’s mindless I don’t like that I do it but when I start eating a snack it’s not enough I just have to keep having more and I can’t stop, my parents have brought up that it’s a problem and I know it is, like for example today I got a box of junior mints and it’s the end of the day and it’s already almost gone I only have a few more left �� I couldn’t stop myself

  • The easiest way to stop binging is to believe that you have more than enough of food. Restrictions of food will result you body urge to eat more and store it. And this is simply a human nature. People buy a lot of toilet paper as we believe they will be on a shortage during the crisis of Coronavirus. When store limited quantities of toilet paper to purchase. Everyone in the store will put toilet paper in their carts.

  • this video is stupid. like people who watch it already know the simpoms the consequences..you are not doing a scool apresentation on power point you dumn… what a stupid video, just say HOW TO STOP binging!!! go direct to it

  • The only thing that helped me stop was keto. It was awsome to have a sense of control! And not obsess about food. Very freeing!
    But I can’t do keto.I felt terrible sick and had no energy for days and days and could not leave the house from weakness and gym was very tough. Plus I was scared to cheat and gain instantally. Where as I have lost and kept some weight off despite the binging.
    So I binged on carbs, potato chips, and made cream cheese and peanut butter sandwiches and stuffed my face again hopefully tommorrow I can leave the house and not be look lethargic
    I always binge at night sice I have a hard time sleeping.
    I hate myself because of the binge but nothing I can do works to stop. I eat all the things described very healthy. Seeweed and kale and everything. I have tried everything its a fight every day.

  • i eat until i cant anymore or until theres nothing i want. even if full i continue. i used to have positive relationship with food but now i dont. i just want to be as healthy as before

  • I honestly can’t stop myself sometimes and then I cry because I ate it…
    Today I ate a lot of almonds maybe like 20!! And then some chocolate.
    I try to stop myself but I fail.. I still grow up and I know I have to eat but I can’t say no to some chocolate or sugar… I promise myself tomorrow I am going to lose some weight.. but the problem that I am underweight and I don’t know how to keep the weight and don’t lose or gain.. someone help me how not to binge… maybe I’ll try to eat more fruits when I want some sugar but I do eat a lot of fruits and I am hungry.. help me someone please…

  • My last binge eating was 2 months ago. I only feel good when I eat healthy like salads, salmon, fruit, and nuts. All the foods she said. Another tip: don’t buy junk food, you’re tricking yourself.

  • I am not a full blown binge eater but if I don’t start getting a handle on it now I could become one… I had a baby an now I’m fighting with massive cravings

  • 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

  • Struggeling with an binge eating disorder! If anyone wants to talk about it please dm me! Maybe we can discuss the stuff that we’re going through together. and if anyone has tips for me also please dm me! My Twitter @ is djzmpaard <3

  • I really feel sick I wanted to go on a diet but instead of loosing weight I gained 3kg from binge eating in one week. From 60 to 63kg and I feel like crying ��

  • Thank you so much for posting this! I have been binge eating for as long as I can remember. When I was 18, I lost 50 pounds and somehow just stopped binging for a while. Then I fell back into the habit of binge eating. I’m almost 30 and want to start having babies soon, but I want to get healthy physically and mentally as best as I can before heading down that road. This video has really helped me figure out where to start!

  • I have binge eating at times and deal with fluid shifts. I cant eat today as I liked biscuits too much. I walked away and talked to someone. My tip is try and stop earlier and limit excess salt, fat or sugar which will cause a bloat later on. Appreciate clothes getting comfortable and accept it happens occasionally or youve bloat after a takeaway. Just wear baggy clothes and enjoy it. I had a habit of this unfortunately and had to cut fat as I got acid reflux now I cant eat much at all. Waiting for meds to kick in but have less size in belly. Be careful around others that have the habit. My ritual was coffee loads of biscuits, one biscuit then 2 squares of chocolate. Hope this helps.

  • I’ve got this disorder big time, so I think that from personal experience up to now and from working on it it’s important to learn about it so you can beat it easier and quicker. Thanks Dr!! �� Specially here in Spain we’ve got a very good healthy and variaty of food, so I should take advantage of it.

  • 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

  • i once had it. but i didnt go to see a psychologist or psychiatrist so i wasnt diagnosed. i literally binged everyday for at least 3 months and had all the criterias except for eating alone. i loved showing ppl how capable i was to eat a lot. i gained 5kg in 2 weeks. i’m much healthier now

  • i have all the symptoms but i try so hard to stop myself or to convince myself that i ate so much. I sometimes eat even when i’m not hungry and i feel really full but i keep eating. I don’t even understand why and then i feel so bad about it. It’s becoming more annoying because we’re locked at home bcz of covid19. And i eat even more when i’m not feeling ok. I wish i could find a solution b4 i become obese.

  • Also my mom is 100% the diet binger. She’ll literally starve herself for a few weeks just to cave in and DEVOUR a family sized bag of Cheeto puffs.

  • I really resonate with your idea of making this a “life style”. A few years ago I saw a slaughterhouse video and that night was the last time I ate meat. Even though it was a drastic diet change, it didn’t feel restricting at all and I have been able to maintain it for like 3+ years. That being said, it’s not hard when you do something sustainable and have a reason behind it instead of just doing it to stick to a diet.

  • I would stress also having a positive relationship with ALL food. Of course it’s okay to have treats or snacks that aren’t the best for us, which is totally okay. It’s about the balance, and I think we need to get away from feeling guilty from eating foods that are less healthy.

  • Hello. SO…. I know you mean well, however… the word “binge eating” is being overused. Binging is not just eating a large dinner meal or eating too much junk instead of healthy food.
    see what this video doesn’t seem to understand, is that binge eating disorder is a disorder.. It is mental. It is just as serious as anorexia and bulimia. This video is the same as saying to an anorexic “just eat this is how you start eating again. just start.”… dumb right? Well… *SORRY i am not trying to offend YOU personally, but so so so many people like the mindset you are in, are these skinny girls, feeling bad abut eating ice cream at dinner and seeing that is a binge. SURE it is not healthy, it is a bad habit but it is NOT the “binge eating disorder”.:) That disorder has nothing to do with just pure willpower and changing up habits.
    It is about huge emotional issues, self hatred, trauma, loneliness, anxiety, physical illness and the emotional response to that, and so many other DEPP rooted issues…. Stop overusing the word Binging. Just say “here is how to eat healthy and smaller portions” or something…. The disorder is being hugely misunderstood bc of videos like this.

    I hope you can see what I mean. No personal hate here.

  • Hi Mona,
    Thank you so much for this video! I wanted to know if steel cut oats are a good option for someone with PCOS and Hormonal Imbalance?

  • hello everyone… I also posted a video about this and how I overcame binge eating! Would love it if you checked it out! Send you all the best xxx

  • This is so interesting. It’s hard to find really good quality content on mental illness on YouTube. Thanks so much for providing some.

  • My thing is that I go on a healthy diet for a set amount of time. Drop a bunch of weight over a long period of time(30 days-12 weeks) where I’m completely in control. then binge it all back. It’s a horrible cycle I’ve been stuck in for 3 years.

  • anorexia/bulimia gang�� this video is really sweet i’m trying so hard to stop binging i actually started crying during this vid, it’s just so loud in my head and i can’t get rid of the voice until i decide “hey just have a lil piece” but then that lil piece ends up becoming a whole binge, and then i feel an immense amount of guilt/ shame. everyone is so disappointed in me i hate myself im so fucking worthless why can’t i just say no.

  • Right on the money, you are 100% on all your tips. I have been in IOP therapy and we have learned ALL OF THESE THINGS LOL Thanks for sharing!

  • I know I have a problem now I just don’t know how to fix it. I’m to afraid to tell anyone. I’m hoping I’ll have the courage to tell my mam when I see her tomorrow.
    I know it’s become an emotional problem I don’t think I can fix it myself. I breakdown every time I watch these videos or I see or read anything about eating disorders. I think I might have one but I’m too afraid to say.

  • I dont want to look like the media, i just want to lose some weight because i binge a lot and its hurting me and not healhty. Does anyone have any advice for me on what to eat and how to lose weight to be healhty?

  • I have been trying to lose weight during lockdown. I began counting my cals I ate over 2000 over the past two days. I’m trying to go back to normal as Ik that won’t put the weight back on if it’s just two days

  • I binge purposely. I want to taste good? Eat. I’m bored? Eat. I know I will be over full and on comfortable, but I eat anyways. Thank god I have a fast metabolism (5.0 ft and 107 lbs) but I do get backed up and realllyyyyy bloated though. Tonight I had a piece of thickly cut deli chicken, two smoked ribs, two spoonfuls of homemade Mac n cheese, a small spoonful of mac salad, two bowls of icecream (one with caramelized peaches) three donuts, and like 3 tortillas chips.

  • Thanks for ur advice you’re an wonderful and joyful also beautiful girl. Love u & ur channel.
    Thank u sincerely max ����

  • I told my husband today I think I have an eating disorder and what I think caused it. He just said I need to let it go. I proceeded to eat 3 snack cakes and a bag of chips ��
    Now I’m thinking about how I cant eat any food tomorrow.

  • I first got into binge eating to cope with a bad breakup a few years ago. I have a new girl now and she’s wonderful, and I’m happy in my relationships with my friends, girlfriend, etc. But I still binge eat at night, and I’m pretty sure it’s just because it’s become a habit at this point. I’ll have stretches where I do really good not binge eating. Like I’ll not binge for a week straight and feel great, and feel like I finally kicked the habit, but then one night it’ll just happen again. Kicking old habits just takes a while ig

  • I am always trying to eat 400 cals cuz that’s the only time I lose even just a pound but then I binge a lot because I’m scared of wasting the food, I don’t have the energy to do this anyways

  • I also have a tendency to bake and tell myself that I won’t eat it but then I always end up eating most of it so I’d recommend not baking/cooking foods if it isn’t necessary

  • Everybody in the comments, I seriously recommend you to read Brain Over Binge by Kathryn Hansen. It helped me a lot so I truly wish it can help you as well♥️

  • I have an odd food that I binge on: it’s yoghurt. I find excuses just to open up a jar, whether it is to taste it for a particular food prep adding sweeter and jam etc (licking the spoon). I keep on dipping the spoon into the jar and before I realise it I’m nearly half way down. This is for full fat yoghurt or Greek yoghurt.

  • Tip

    [Don’t Fight temptation Flea from temptation ]

    The Body Fight, Freez, and Flight Response

    Pertain to binge eating: Run, Give yourself 5min. Timeout,
    Tell yourself you’ll be back in 5min., So you can get rid of your impulsiveness and anxiousness. Also, give you the chance to entertain yourself with another activity.

  • I’m a stress eater, and It’s so annoying because I feel terrible about the way I look so then I stress eat even though I know I will feel worse afterward.

  • I have a problem with this… it gets those close to me annoyed but I can’t help it. I eat out of stress, boredom, sadness, and even happiness. Food brings me so much comfort I don’t even know what to do anymore

  • I have a pc and I play a lot of warframe gta and MINECRAFTTTTT but mostly gta and I still eat like a fucking fat stinky cute bitch

  • I actually found your video because another YouTuber suggested to watch videos on YouTube about your ED to help you overcome it. I wish more psychologists took binge eating seriously. I tell them what is going on and they test my thyroid and tell me my thyroid is fine. I never said it was my thyroid. I know what’s wrong. I just don’t get how to stop. You see it happening, you want to stop, but no one actually gives you the tools to stop bingeing.

  • I just don’t want to eat those stuff but when i saw them i just put my mind side to it and just eat it even though i am not hungry after eating those i cry and said why why i eat this i’ll never do this again but i did the same thing again and again….but Thank u so much for sharing this video…i hope it’ll definitely help me��to get rid of my binging habit

  • I have a terrible relationship with food. When I start eating I don’t stop and my mom keeps on buying sugary snacks and when I finish all of them she’ll say how can you eat an entire bag of cookies while you can just eat two cookies and you’re done but she doesn’t get it. Can I get tips on how I can eat with moderation cause I binge and overeat

  • Watching this while having a breakdown. I eat and I can never stop and I feel so worthless and fat but I still cant stop. Hating myself makes me eat more and more. I’ve tried everything.

  • I just came here because I am trying to lose weight and I wanted to have nothing but the 2 meals and a snack for a day, but I was really craving some bread and butter, so I went ahead and took 2 slices with butter. Now I feel SOOOO guilty…

  • Its harder when you are stuck at home during quarantine and your mom decides to try a new cake everyday and all the self control just flies out the window

  • Hello, have you thought about this diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My friend says it helps people lost a lot of weight. Is that possible? I also noticed many good review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • Thank you SO much for this! My binging is getting worse and worse and I just don’t know why I can’t stop eating even when I’m full. Now after watching your video I fully understand why.

  • I’ve recognized a pattern with myself:
    I wake up around 7:30 and get after it. At around noon I decide to rest and eat lunch. I eat my food while watching something and when I’m finished eating I feel an urge to go get more food and keep watching. I binge on food until I’m so full that I take a nap.

  • I agreed and liked most of the video but, At 19:42 I’ll point out, that is Not what low self esteem, means AT ALL. Lol Smh. I feel like that’s a fake quote from wikepedia, or her opinion. but that is not a true fact at all. Please Google what low self esteem is, if you somehow don’t know.

  • Does anyone else feel like they are addicted to just chewing and swallowing? I don’t even taste the food, and I don’t even eat to give myself energy. It’s kinda just being so used to that constant routine. So many times I’ll just get up and walk to my kitchen, I’m not hungry or craving anything, but I’m just longing to fill that void.

  • finally someone who makes sense and gets to the heart of what’s really in the way of losing weight and eating healthy. Thank you. One tip, editing needs help too many transitions (i have an editor husband lol) Good luck! I will subscribe!

  • i am 14 and i’m dealing with this. i feel like it’s something 14 year olds shouldn’t deal with and i feel stupid for thinking it because i’m “too young” to be worrying about my body. all of my friends eat and don’t even care about diets or anything and i don’t understand why i have to be doing this.:(

  • Thank you SO much for sharing this video, its soooo spot on and even tough I now marketing forces is “brainwashing” me, the last part was like OMG this is so true. Like why am I buying in to all the shit that’s being sold to us. Also the part on starving and binging. Well all was exactly what I needed to hear and I will definitely look again when I am having a difficult moment ❤️

  • I hadn’t eaten for 2 days because I was fasting, but all I could think of was just getting a snack to help me get through the night, I ended up eating everything in sight,and now I feel horrible, its impossible to loose weight this way:(

  • i struggle with binge and also clean eating disorder and i searched for a video after eating a ton of candy and i found this video.

  • I litterly binge eat so much, it was the middle of the night and I was so hungry for food I cried for hours i dunno what to do this vid helped me out a bit so thank you 😉

  • Oh how I wish there was a pill to stop hating yourself; it is such a vicious unrelenting torment to be disgusted with yourself for feeling let down by the person in the mirror. Meanwhile, the rest of the world suffers truly terrifying problems so then heavier guilt sets in

  • I strongly recommend reading “Breaking Free from Emotional Eating” by Geneen Roth!! It’s truly changed my mindset and relationship with food. The most important thing I learned was to listen to your body!!! I’m 19 and I started dieting at 13:/ The cycle for the past 6 years had been a week of dieting and eating “clean” (1,200 calories a day) and then another week of stuffing myself with everything that I saw (more than 5,000 calories a day!). No matter what I tried, I would end up binging at the end of each dieting phase. I realized that to break this cycle, I had to eat when I was hungry. it was so simple, but so so hard to do, because I didn’t know what hunger felt like because I learned to ignore those cues throughout the years. Anyway, as I started to really pay attention to my body, I actually started losing weight and ultimately felt super happy because I wasn’t thinking about food all the time.

  • Thank you so much for this video!! Truth be told!:) Consumerism and Marketing scams are there to help you binge! I can relate!:)

  • Im here now, because I’ve just finished (hopefully) a biiiig binge, and I’m finding a way, how to overcome it… But actually, I don’t know what it it whit me… I have binged for about four or five times in this month (and it is a really cool thing to me, because in the month before I have been bingeing almost every day…), in this month I ve started creating a different mentality and I have taken care of my food and didn’t eat every junkies. So yeah that’s it, I have lost about 5 kilograms in a month and I have scaled myself every Monday, but since in this Monday I havent seen any differences on the scale, from the last Monday, I became so emotional and moody, or actually I have no clue what is it, but I can’t stop tniking about my faliture, because I considered it as a faliture… Today, on top of that, I watched old pictures of myself, and I really really wanna go back there, when I had no problems whit food, and I don’t know how the fck I didnt gained weigh or how was that, that I didn’t even was thinking about food or anything, I was just so so happy and independent from any kinds of shit that comes from an eating disorder… (Sorry for my english)
    Honestly the thing us that, I don’t even want to be skinny, or not that boney stick that I had been, I want to be strong and muscular and I am training out thr life of my ass, and as I am a binge eater, I don’t see any results visually, because I can feel it, but I don’t see it, and it is so exhausting… Honestly I thing that’s the main reason why I turn to food, because I am sad and disappointed af…

    (I feel way much better, that I could write it down!!! �� I know now, that there are so many people here with this problem, and I’m not alone, and that actually feels good!!! ❤️)

  • I’m trying to lose weight but I can’t move from 80 kg. I binge and then I just feel guilt afterwards. I wanna purge right now but just stopping myself. This quarantine is killing me.

  • GMOs are not nutritionally dense? Surely that’s a direct contradiction of the point of GMOs they are genetically modified to be MORE nutritionally dense for a reason surely? Yeah…

  • Hello people..I’m so disappointed with myself…Recently I realised that I suffer from the B.E.D…I really wanna lose weight but all I’m thinking about is food and what should I eat and when should I eat it and what should I avoid etc…My mind has drove me crazy…I can’t handle it…I have lost myself…I feel like I can’t control me anymore..I have already gained some weight..These days are the worst…I’m so unmotivated..I sick and tired of the way I treat myself and the way I look in the mirror…

  • I am sick and tired of myself of binge eating all the time. I once had overcome it by myself for a period of 1.5 months, but now I fall again.. I regained 3 kilos and I dont want to gain even more. I can’t stop myself, I know it’s bad what I am doing but I can’t stop! I am so disappointed…

  • The stimulant works to reduce eating episodes because it’s a stimulant ����‍♀️ it’s just using a drug to get your good feelings instead of food

  • I once eat 1 1/2 pound nutella cream and a whole 3 pound oven baked perch.And more stuff i do not remember.I did not benged for half year after a lot work and it helps with 16/8 aproach.I still have fantasies dough and when i am home alone,i have mini binges from time to time.But nothing that bad and i am working with it.

  • Binge eater here, have every single indicator they suggested but luckily none of the comorbidity problems and I lead a very active lifestyle, much like the guest. I’m about 15 lbs overweight, which I’m constantly dieting to lose. I can restrict calories for days and then binge all weekend long, usually triggered by getting discouraged by not seeing the scale numbers budge. I want to stop binging, but hearing that treatment doesn’t help you lose weight is a bummer. I’d rather continue binging with a possibility of weight loss than get treatment and stay overweight

  • I searched “why do I get so angry super easy then get sad then binge eat then get frustrated again for the rest of the week I’m going through puberty and I feel insecure about everything that I like and i feel like a mess but I don’t want to bother people by talking about it.” Help me

  • If I weren’t myself I’d beat the shit outta me. So disappointed in Myself but I’ll never give up. Don’t care if I fail 2 million more times I’ll never give up.

  • I just don’t get it, I am obsessed with trying to loose weight and my whole life has become “how to loose weight”!! And I can’t stop cause I feel FAT all the time. And I still binge eat despite wanting to loose weight. Im an impulsive eater and I don’t know how to stop.

  • Whenevere I binge there is always a part of me that is aware of what is happening, but it’s like I’m watching myself from an outside perspective, so I don’t care if I’m eating or what I’m eating, or how fast. It’s very strange, it’s like during the binge I think “I know this is bad but it’s something my future self will have to deal with����‍♀️”

  • I was diagnosed with B.E.D. when I was about five years oldI know that sounds crazy but I had a traumatic childhood and I subconsciously turned to food I guess. I’ve just lived with it my whole life, and my parents restrict me when they can. BUT when I started freshman year and got a job I had money to buy food and it was no longer in their control. I’ve gained about 30 lbs so I need to get this under control before it gets worse cuz my parents won’t always be there to help me

  • I’ve always seen myself as fat, even though my doctor told me I’m at a healthy weight. I would binge and then over-exercise or starve myself for days because I felt sooo guilty. Or I would have horrible thoughts about starving myself to death. I don’t know what to do anymore… I wish I could love my body and develop a good relationship with food.

  • To diagnose Binge eating disorder (BED) based on DSM-5 diagnostic criteria check our Medical Calculator https://www.pediatriconcall.com/calculators/dsm-5-binge-eating-disorder

  • I want to start a Eating clean/Working out/Quit BED and make daily calls to keep us on track. ¿Who is in? Just share your FB/Discord to make a group and we can talk about schedules and calls.

  • It’s incredible I paid crazy amounts of money to get prepped meals delivered to my doorstep every morning. I had a specific intake of calories. I lost 6kg in 2 months never felt hungry in the process, though I had moments where I dreamt of binge eating in front of tv and felt so confident in my body. I stopped the meal prep and said to myself that I’ll be able to cook the same and cut 90% of the cost. And trust me the minute I stopped I gained 2kg next thing I know I’m back binge eating except now I throw up after doing so because of the guilt and it’s been 3 months nowً. Every night I say to myself that tomorrow I’ll eat well even if it has to be delivered food…and then I think to myself oh you had a long day how about a comforting meal you deserve it you’ll be so cozy. And then I regret so hard. Worst part is I binge and I’m not even hungry in first place it’s purely mental

  • it seems so hard not to eat even for one hour nowadays…i never though i would hav hard time coping with my eating habit..ive been intaking quite a large amount of foods…i end up shoving my mouth with anything i found in kitchen for two three hours…it comes back after every two three days….the food i consume ends up tasting nothing…its like chewin n nothing muchh..i need help

  • Most definitely needs to be more awareness and openness towards BED, there is so much about this disorder that genuinely harms someone who has it and it’s not talked about as much, I’m glad there is more insight in this video on it so other people can understand and learn more about this, it a struggle, coping with food for emotional distress is no fun������ more support and awareness is needed

  • 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.


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

  • 8-13 times a week for me ): i can’t stop. i don’t know how to stop. i’m so fat and ugly. i try to workout but i’ve worn out my knees because i use to purge by working out hours and hours after eating so my knees give out jogging. i suck. i weigh 270

  • Since the quarantine starting in the UK. I have been ordering sweets and chocolate with amazon prime the contraband is delivered the next day. I came to a realization after order more sweets. I need to set my mind free from the abuse I personal inflict on myself everyday. I’m constantly belittling myself, disgusting of my body, face, hair. Always feeling worthless. Being in quarantine has amplified it. I know it will take a long time. But I have started on the path to building a healthier relationship with food and myself. Self love not self hate

  • I have BED, I will plan my binge it very secretive, because of the shame and guilt. If try to resist the binge, it’s the only thing on my mind. I had cognitive behaviour therapy but only got it for 6 month when it finish my mother died from cancer a few weeks later. I managed not to binge for 5 month. But the sadness was crushing me and the binge eating started again but not as bad. Before the therapy I was binge eating everyday I was disgusted with myself and life. After the help it’s only once a week sometime twice a week. My mind tells me I need the release, to deal with the stress of life.

  • I just keep eating like I can’t stop until I’m sick and then I regret it and feel awful like I’m dying….I hate my eating problem and I want it to end

  • If anyone is reading this, I just want you to know that I have started a support group/ buddy system. If you look under the comments of “Emily Isaac” you can see that I already have two new friends. The amount of support that we are sharing with each other has made a HUGE difference in our progress. If you are interested in being held accountable and having a buddy to tell you to STOP! YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH! YOU ARE WORTH IT! YOU ALREADY HAD THE NUTRIENTS YOU. NEED! and whatever makes you stop…. let me know through instagram DM. My profile is Ruthie_c_t

    This is not for me to get new followers, you don’t even have to friend me. I already have 3 wonderful people that we are all helping each other. We will grow in number and we will support each other. We are human, we are going through some pretty horrible times. My heart goes out to you. Message me and let’s get through this.

    Lastly, this does not replace professional Help! I will always try to convince you to seek a professional therapist and doctor. I have a life coach who is helping me through this and is unlocking the code to why I do this. My life has changed. But the addition of people, and the support is unreal and I can’t even tell you what a huge change it has had on me. I looked at a chocolate cake in my house the other night and wanted it… I walked away because I reached out to my support. It was incredible painful and hard to walk away… but I did.. Thank you to all good luck! Let’s build this community of support! Thank you ImedexCME for uploading this video!

  • I seriously don’t know what to do. I eat a lot and then after I regret everything I ate. And I go to the bathroom and force myself to throw it up but then i forget about it and eat more and the cycle continues.

  • Pleasantly surprised at the amount of camaraderie and support being offered in this comment section. I have BED myself, and it gives me some hope

  • Undiagnosed BED Canadian patient here. None of my doctors take it seriously… totally lost. Many parts of this conference brought tears to my eyes because I can fully relate. It actually feels like you guys are trying to finally make sense of it and understand it, which is wonderful. Thank you.

  • I think you are a nice woman, and You make some good points but I know your video stems from metaphysics and I don’t believe or agree with those views but thank you so much.

  • Who wants to start a group chat where we try to stop binge eating through quarantine and talk to eachother about it:) I’m trying so hard to stop eating so much and loose weight but whenever I start eating I just can’t stop:,( UPDATE: we have a group chat add your instagram names ����to be added! ❤️

  • It’s exhausting. Feel crap, everyday has been chance to start again but by 3pm I’ve picked on crap that triggers me to go mental. I could eat every hour of the day.

  • it kinda frustrates me how people think you ether have to be overweight or skinny to have a eating disorder, i’ve been on every spectrum you can think of when it comes to eating disorders, orthorexia, anorexia, binge and purging, bulimia, bulimia nervosa, i’ve been 80 pounds 200 pounds in a span of a year, but what sucks is right now i’m in my lowest of lows but i’m a healthy weight, and the only time i have gotten help during my journey is when i showed on the outside i had a eating disorder

  • I hate the fact most people only think of eating disorders as getting skinny when it’s so much more I’ve come here today because my disorder as seriously out me into a huge state of genuine sadness and whenever I feel sad I binge eat nobody can really me because it’s more the emotional side than the whole body perspective side

  • Kinda sucks that no one caught on to the question about being a wrestler. Wrestlers are expected to take extreme measures to quickly drop weight. It can definitely develop an unhealthy obsession with food!

  • Not obese is the trigger for me. I am obese. if you’re not obese and you’ve been binge eating your whole life AND you’re physically healthy..then it appears you’re creating an issue where there is none. who the hell wouldn’t be happy being able to eat in pig out all week long and not gain any weight? don’t tell me about the psychological aspect of being able to eat all day and not gain a pound, there is no psychological aspect to that, other than elation and positivity. Being obese is the the main issue.. and not being able to control the main issue is the disorder. I won’t even listen to this BS lecture for another second after I heard them reiterating over and over, that being a normal weight is normal for this disorder

  • Please, If there are people out there who overcame BED, could you tell me if there is a chance I can change my mindset and treat myself without receiving professional help and consultation? I have neither enough money to afford therapy nor a professional who would be qualified to deal with my eating disorder. Also, here in Russia it is absolutely impossible to get vyvanse as it is considered a drug and any attempt of getting it will be unlawful.
    I’m desperate to find a solution and just finally be healthy but I have no idea what is there to be done.

  • 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 guess I should have listened to mother when I was young and would have stopped eating a pack of cookies every time I was unsupervised…

  • I’m actually the opposite. When I’m really down or depressed I tend to not eat for hours. I struggle with binge eating when I start to eat something, but I find it so delicious that I can’t stop.

  • Ever since I was a child I ate till I threw up and over the past years made it to 197 lbs by the age of 12. 2019 my hunger levels went down and my weight went down to 130lbs with excercise and calorie deficits I’m now at 150 from binging in the past four months, I eat when I’m anxious when I’m sad and mad my family doesn’t believe in mental disorders or any type of disorder I just wanna heal on my own in secret.

  • At my biggest and bingiest, I was binging every single day. The guilt and shame is real. I have came a long way and I try to stop myself and force myself to eat slower, I still get bursts of just eating everything but it’s a long journey

  • I had this problem almost every night untill i started to train regularly. I don’t know what the connection might be but thought that it might help someone. ✌��

  • Great video! I binge eating almost every evening as my husband wants to eat alone at his desk I eat alone and I am so resentful for that and many other things I definitely feel invalidated….

  • im 16, an emotional eater and I think I have a binge eating disorder, I’ve been through hundreds of diets and they all end with me binge eating.. I tried counting my calories and I ended up binging, I tried to go vegan and I also ended up binging, I did a liquid diet for a whole week and lost 7 kilos but ended up gaining 17 kilos in a YEAR! whenever I’m feeling emotionally stressed I always binge till the point where I actually throw up ( not because I want to but its because I’m so full like I’m almost exploding ) I always eat at night or alone cause I hate when people watch me eat, my family don’t understand and they keep on telling me I’m getting fat or I look ugly when I eat, and every time they find me in the kitchen at night they’d make fun of me ( because they think bulling me would make me stop ) but they don’t understand that they’re making it worse!! i hate my body and myself so much but I don’t know how to make it stop, I used to get bullied in elementary school for being the chubbiest girl in class, when I was 11 my dad brought me a giant bag filled with candies for my birthday and I ended up eating all of them in two days, no matter how full I am I never stop eating, everyday it gets worst and I don’t know how to control it and move on with my life ( I currently weight 88KGs\194lbs ) I don’t know how to get help and I don’t know if my family would actually understand what an eating disorder is.. I feel helpless

  • I binge usually at breakfast or lunch and then as I feel extremelly guilty and ashamed I starve for the rest of the day:(
    I always eat even if I’m not hungry at all, I just feel anxious and stressed out.
    I wish I had someone to talk about this. I don’t have as good as relation with my dad, I do have a lot of confidence with my mom but I don’t want to bother her, because she is sick and has to stay clamed otherwise she would be in more pain than she is already.:/

  • Its like when everytime i see food ill say to myself “ill just not eat a lot tommorow, or ill just take some. But after eating more than I planned to eat till my stomach feels exploding, i cry and really feel ashamed and disappointed again on myself

  • 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.

  • for some reason at night, i’m really triggered. i just get these really bad cravings that i cannot control. after, i binge i hate myself.

  • Please can someone tell me how I can help my friend who has suffered this disorder for a long time? I don’t know how severe she is but I don’t know what to do just tell me anything that could help the situation and get her to recover

  • I don’t think we need to reduce this disorder to just five points
    In my case, I’m continuously looking for what to eat next…..and i eat even when I’m not hungry….i have this fear of being hungry

  • I’m 16 years old and struggling with it for 2 years. There are some time periods where I could control it and where I didn’t binge. But I lost the control since quarantine. My BED is controlling me. I want to get help, but without going to the psychologist. I asked my mom for help but she said that I aM jUsT oVeRrEaCtInG and that I don’t have an eating disorder. But that’s just bc she is ignorant and bc she doesn’t know anything about eating disorders. I thought that she’s maybe right, but since it got worse, I literally KNOW that I have BED and I have almost everything that was said in this video, for example eating fast… I can’t live like this anymore!! I wanna help myself, but I don’t now how. I hate it when my belly hurts afterwards and the baddest part is the guilt and self hate that I have after a binge!! Pls help

  • Thank you. I was diagnosed with B.E.D. over a year ago. Vyvanse helped a lot. I had more energy, was more focused, and less appetite. With that said in June I stopped taking it. June was horrible. I stayed tired and the B.E.D. immediately resurfaced. I’m looking into some of the things you mentioned. I do not want to maintain my life with the use of amphetamines. I want control over me.

  • I used to use cross country as my excuse for eating the way I do, but now having been off of teams for the past 14 years makes it hard to ignore that I still eat in the way you described. I seem to have all 5 characteristics.

  • Having a CDL seems to complicate things when possibly needing medication. I was not happy to hear of those 2 medication options if I were to decide to seek help.

  • I’ve been dealing with binge eating disorder for more than 13 years now. I really don’t know what to do. I feel guilty all the time.

  • Its so relieving that it they mentioned that “mild” can still be a problem. Im not really overweight but my binge episodes have stopped me from hitting my fitness goals. Im so happy that im not alone and I have a name for it.

  • This is so helpful thank you so much. I have been searching for information like this for ages and you summed it up perfectly. I am off to find a CBT therapist now. I cannot thank you enough.

  • Number one way binge eating starts is from a diet or over restricting food or diets like paleo, keto etc. Any restricting fuels bingeing. It starts a cycle. Yes of course there is an emotional component but having a body image issue and worrying about calories and foods we are eating is number one reason.

  • I honestly can’t stop crying watching this. I lost my job and haven’t handled quarantine well, and relapsed. It’s so hard for me to admit this and I feel so ashamed.

  • When I actually made an improvement like taking a desert when my day was going wel,l I do not know how to celebrate it, I feel like I messed up and so feeling down and so eating to tried to get better…

  • recovery is possible, you guys xxxxxxx. i’m two years into recovery, and pretty much got it nailed. still slip ups, but life is sooooo much better now that i’ve gotten help. so much love to you all. keep fighting the good fight.

  • I used binge eating to cope with the loss of a loved one five years ago at just 15, I’m now 20 and still do it. I’m not diagnosed yet.

  • I don’t know what to do I’m on a diet for almost a month, and everytime I got full I always eat more/binge until I get fuller and then I cri

  • Tell me why I’m watching this and actually sobbing because I can’t get anyone to diagnose this despite me ticking EVERY SINGLE BOX and I just hate myself. ������

  • 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

  • Does binge eating is the same as “gluttony”? Because I don’t really feel like doing this because of anxiety, or feeling sad or maybe angry… I simply eat because of the pleasure of the food… can this still be considered a disorder?

  • I thought it a little odd that there is a minimum of once a week for 3 months occurrence to be diagnosed. What if I do it every other week or it occurs twice a week for three weeks and then one week off and then twice a week again. Would that mean I dont have a problem?? Then i found this from the book she recommended “a person’s binges have to occur on average at least once a week. This threshold is arbitrary and has changed over the years. It has been criticized for implying that people who binge less frequently, or who do so intermittently, are less impaired, whereas this is often not the case. Consequently, clinicians often ignore thresholds of this type when making a diagnosis.” -an excerpt from Overcoming Binge Eating by Dr. Christopher G. Fairburn.

  • I’m 13, so it might be a hormone thing but I get home from school or I wake up and my first thought is food, I eat and secret a lot, only to be ashamed and disgusted at myself while and after I’m doing it. I don’t know what to do. I’m gaining weight fast and I feel disgusting. (I’m 5’6/165lbs

  • I either eat 800kcals or +2000. I’ve been trying to lose weight since my early teens (I’m 21 now) and no one understands how I can be so chubby considering how little I eat in front of them and I’m always dieting bla bla bla but yeah I lose control once a week and I ruin all my progress

  • Who could help me. Is there any online page that could help. My mom believes this is just a situation of self control, but it is BED.

  • I had binge eating disorder when I moved to capital city of my country because of the university studies. I felt lonely, unprotected and unloved all the time, I missed my parents, my home, my friends and the life that I was living before in general. Then I started to binge eat, It’s the worse thing ever. Everytime It was time for a meal, the first thought that would cross my mind is THIS WOULD NOT BE ENOUGH, I always felt like I am capable of eating so much more. It started to have impact on my studies since I was not able to concentrate unless I eat that thing that I wanted, so I always did it. After binge eating I felt awful, I cry, I used to make myself trow up, I always felt ashamed and used to hide from my roomates whenever I had those “attacks”. And everyone was like YOU NEED TO HELP YOURSELF, JUST STOP IT, EAT HEALTY etc. I was so stressed out always feeling too filled, guilty and ugly since I gained a lot of weight. And It all stopped now that I came back home because of the covid19, I’m so scared that it will come back again, and the problem is Its not like other addictions such as alchoholism because the treatment is to stop using alchohol, on the other hand you can not stop eating at all. It so fucking awful

  • Thank you so much for this video.
    I think it’s very important to not just find ways to stop doing things like binge eating, but also know exactly why we do that and why we should stop doing it.
    Again, thank you so much for such an informative and positive video.

  • I do it when I’m bored as well. I sometimes cook when I’m bored. I used to make apple crumble and then eat a whole baking tray of it with custard because I made it so I had to eat it. I fell into a routine of cooking pasta every day after school and eating it with ketchup or cheese or gravy jus because it was there. I’d eat waffles at night because I had nothing to do. I’m too embarrassed to talk about it because I feel like no one truly understands and they will just see it as me being fat and greedy

  • I just feel like an addict when it comes to food and everytime i try tell someone they just say “same Im a chocoholic too” or “same i love food” but its not just that. Often i feel anxious or depressed so I just eat myself to pityness and guilt. Im constantly on “diets” but the longest I can go without sweets is a week and then I give in once i taste even just the smallest thing. Everyday i say “I’ll start tomorrow” but honestly I dont think trying to go cold turkey on sweets etc will actually help my problem, do you know what I mean? My mind is consumed with food thoughts, should eat lunch today, should i eat the biscuits, why did I eat all that chocolate today,have I gotten fatter. Im only fifteen as well so i often get in trouble with my brother or mam for eating all the food, they think im just greedy but I can’t help it and its so embarrassing when i admit to it. Sorry for this rant, if you got this far, respect, I would not �� bye.

  • Wow I’m shocked. This video was so informative I feel like I can deal with my bid bc of it. Like it made me understand the reasoning behind it so well. Thank you

  • What if you binge eat frequently but not when feeling negative emotions? Like it’s just a bad habit and you can’t control it. Kind of like an addiction.

  • My binge eating scares me. I’m trying to get over it by eating healthy and frequently (not restricting afterwards), but every time I’m stressed or in any situation that causes me anxiety, I almost go on autopilot and will eat until extreme fullness. I won’t even be aware of the taste half of the time, and will eat pretty much anything (mostly sweet things). I’ve been on the other side with heavy restricting and being underweight, but it just put me in the situation/cycle I’m in now and have been in the past couple of years.

  • i just want to be normal. i just want to eat normal. thank you for posting this so i can try to understand myself better. it’s just hard.

  • Why isn’t nutrition counseling (with a dietitian who specializes in eating disorders) recommended? Why aren’t eating disorder programs recommended? It IS an eating disorder, so why not treat it like other EDs?

  • I love this video the first person to break it down and really talk about it offer real solutions and treat it like a disorder not just over eating

  • I am 16 years old, I was anorexic for 2 years and when I tought I was finish with eating disorders, binge eating came into my life and now I don’t know how to stop it… ��

  • I usually binge when I’ve procrastinated and have a lot of studying to do. Every time I settle down to get some work done, I find myself getting up and “grabbing a snack” from the kitchen. I finish the snack on the desk and go get another one after barely reading a page. In the kitchen I eat so much that my stomach hurts. My mom saw me overeating a few months ago and I remember telling her “Mom I can’t stop, help me” in tears. She doesn’t understand though. I know I eat for comfort and to reduce my anxiety but she thinks getting me the foods I crave will make me happy. They do while I’m eating them, but right after I feel disgusted with what I am doing to myself. The thing that adds to my frustration also is the fact that I’ve lost 12 kgs over the summer but gained 8 kgs back during the semester. Next semester is going to require more effort, as I have applied for a minors program (yes, I want to die) and became the coordinator for a students’ club. I’m planning on being more disciplined so I procrastinate less, which will prevent me from stressing too much and in turn, reduce the cravings. I just want to be thin for at least once in my life. I breaks my heart how I can accomplish (I have a high need for achievement) so much, yet fail to show willpower in something as simple as eating. I just enjoy it a lot. Too much in fact. I wish something else was my main focus instead of food. Even studying doesn’t keep me distracted! I try to distract myself with things I love but even when I’m doing those I want to eat. I don’t think I have a binge-eating disorder but I feel damn close to one when I’m stressed. And angry at myself for not being perfect. Yes, I’m also a perfectionist. But not the kind that’s level-OCD but more moderate. Anyway this is a super long comment but Dr. Marks if you have any suggestions for me, I would really appreciate the help. I just can’t mentally “get there” enough to make a change. I really want to lose weight and it is important for me but I have this huge obstacle and can’t see the path clearly. This video was super helpful though, thank you.

  • You have such a beautiful smile and its making ME smile! Me; a sad potato who has a resting bitch face 24/7! Have a great day u absolutely gorgeous angel��

  • I’m soo tired and angry about this binge diet cycle of mine,it’s been going on since mid September of 2019 till now, I have gained 9 pounds and I have these binges 2 a week for past almost 4 months,I have body weight goals but I feel like I’m not seeing any improvement, I feel like I get easily frustrated and annoyed and I try and avoid people who I feel are sarcastic or I feel like they’re judgmental individuals.All I want is to go back to my goals as far as weight and I feel like I’m out of control and getting nowhere as far as what I want myself to look like.

  • there is another component of BED: a binge that occurs as a result of actual nutritional deficiencies that results from food restriction

  • I have had binge eating disorder for over 30 years. Many professionals over the years have commented on my great insight and self awareness. All the therapy and self awareness has made not one jot of difference to my binge eating.

  • I’ve used to suffer from binge eating for over 2 years and even though I’ve been recovered for a while now it’s still something I struggle with every single day.

  • Good Morning Dr. Marks,
    I have never been diagnosed with an eating disorder because I don’t focus on the binge eating and bulimia as a separate illness. I was diagnosed with Borderline personality disorder and I feel like the binge eating/bulimia is a symptom of that. Does that make sense? I say binge eat bulimia because some days I just binge because something happened that day or because of stress and then other days when I’m binging and the guilt consumes me, I will purge or take laxatives just to feel “empty.” I guess what I’m thinking that I don’t have an eating disorder because it wasn’t developed on its own. It appeared just recently because of my personality disorder. Is that possible?

  • Hi dr Tracy Marks. I do enjoy your educational vidios. It realy helps me a lot. Can you please do a vidio on bulimia. What causes it? What it is. And how to deal with it. Because I fear I am becoming bulimic. Thank you Dr Tracy

  • I believe I have or have had, binge eating disorder. I am 65 years old. I requested bariatric surgery to lose weight. I was told by my MD to lose 25 pounds. I did. But NOW they think I have BED and want to waste more time on alternative treatments due to the cost of bariatric surgery. I say, when will I get to lose all this weight? I have sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, borderline diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. I am really angry that I cannot be relieved of this terrible excess burden in so many ways. I asked to see a Psychatrist and am awaiting the decision. I go to a senior PACE PROGRAM. i AM SO DISGUSTED DOCTOR.

  • Fascinating. I never knew there was such a disorder. The biggest help for me has been swimming. Never knew there was such a thing as interpersonal therapy. Thank u!

  • thank you! finally something that i can use as a mental tool to stop me binging, not some stupid advice like “just get rid of all the unhealthy foods in the house” bs that’s on SO many blogs and videos.

  • I only binge eat when I’m bored, hungry but then I get carried away, or at random times, and most of the time I crave sugar and then I can’t stop it’s a problem and I can’t help it��

  • Changing my vocabulary has been a game changer in lots of aspects of my life. That is sooooo powerful!
    Thanks for your work, tips and tricks. Your videos are always a pleasure to watch. ��
