  • 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.

    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!

  • 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?
