Dieting seems like a logical solution to stop binge eating. Except…
DIETS don’t work. Some studies have found that 95% of diets fail and any lost weight is all gained back within 3 years.
There are a few reasons diets don’t work, but a big reason is the thoughts that fuel dieting behaviors.
We are thinking:
“I don’t like the way I look” or
“I need to make up for that binge“
Then we are dieting from a place of shame, fear or another negative emotion.
The diet might work for a minute, but the negative emotions that are fueling the diet + the hunger caused by the decreased calories = perfect storm for a binge.
Negative emotion + hunger = intense desire for food
This is the last thing we want to do when we want to stop binge eating.
What do I recommend?
We want to do the opposite of the binge eating formula.
Helpful thoughts and emotions + nourished body = no need to binge eat
We do this by diving into our brains and examining what we think about ourselves.
We can learn to really love ourselves. Then, it is a lot easier to eat well.
Feeding our bodies healthy, nourishing, tasty and satisfying food is one of the greatest acts of self-love.
This is the cycle we want to help you or your loved one who is struggling, create for yourselves.
