2 Tips to beat Binge Eating Disorders... And Get Your life back!

I knew the dangers of binge eating disorders, but that didn't stop me. I felt out of control and I had to eat.

I used to sneak into the kitchen late at night, after everyone was asleep. I'd close the door behind me and prepare for the binge ahead.

My heart would pound in my chest and I could feel the adrenaline in my body. When I began to eat, everything went hazy... I went onto autopilot and just consumed endlessly. I ate bread with peanut butter, honey, jam. I ate leftovers from dinner, I ate cereal, custard. I drank milk, coke, fruit juice, hot chocolate. Whatever I could find I would consume.

When I couldn't fit another thing inside me, I'd go the the bathroom and force it all out of me.

Binge eating disorder and bulimia came hand in hand.

In fact... I suffered from eating disorders for over 10 years - between the age of 8 and 20. The binge eating phases of those 10 years were by far the worst. The feeling of having no control was horrendous.

 

Why Binge Eaters Eat, Eat and Eat

I ate when I was happy, I ate when I was sad, I ate when I was nervous. I ate for rewards, to escape from problems and to cope with stress. I was addicted to food and just as an alcoholic can't stop drinking - I had bulimia and binge eating disorders and I couldn't stop eating.

But eating didn't make me feel good. Sure, temporarily I felt better after a binge... But that never lasted.

What I discovered in my recovery is that there are 3 significant causes of binge eating disorders. These are:

  1. Primal hunger caused by your history of dieting or food restriction
  2. The neural pathway connections of habit in your brain that had been wired after years of binge eating and purging
  3. The habit of using food to push down your feelings to fill an emotional void

It's that emotional void that I'm going to be talking about today...

That space in your heart that no food can fill.

 

Attempting to fill my heart with food...

I wasn't disgusting. I did have self control and I wasn't a freak.

I grew up in a country full of turmoil and was forced to leave as a refugee to live in New Zealand. It was a devastating experience and I was using food to try and heal my emotional wounds.

I don't believe that it was an emotional trauma that caused my eating disorders in the first place... My issues with food started long before this at the age of 8. I believe it was wanting to change my body by dieting that planted the first seeds of bulimia in my life.

There is no doubt though, that the emotional trauma of leaving my homeland made my binge eating spiral out of control. I felt like there was a gaping hole in my heart and binge eating was one way that I could dull the pain it caused.

If you suffer from binge eating disorders, I'm sure you know what I mean?

In my year of recovery, I learnt how to feel my feelings - rather than feed them. This helped to reduce my binge eating episodes. But there were 2 other key steps that enabled me to become a normal eater...

 

My Top 2 tips on how to Stop Binge Eating And Become A Normal Eater


  1. Allow yourself to eat.

    Yes, you read it right! Allowing your body to be fed is a key part of recovering from bulimia and binge eating.

    Binge eating disorders stem from a place of restriction and deprivation - despite how much you eat, there is always an undertone of "This is the last time - then you're on a diet!". Our subconscious minds are terrified of famine and these threats of dieting are read as "Food is becoming scarce" The response to this are messages to "EAT, EAT now, EAT everything you can find!"

    Allowing yourself to eat and eliminating the dieting mentality from your life are key in learning how to eat in a normal, healthy and happy way!

    I go into far more detail about this in The Bulimia Recovery Guide I have written. The guide is part of the successful online bulimia recovery program that I run - which you can check out here.


  2. Practice Unconditional Self Love!

    I used to think self love was a silly thing - for hippies who danced around in sun kissed fields! Now I can see that self love is an essential part of recovery - and an essential part of a happy life :)

    The journey to self love starts with releasing some of the shame you most likely feel about your eating disorder... Opening up to somebody you love and trust can help you do this - It will take the weight of the world off your shoulders.

    If you find it hard to talk to people you know about your binge eating disorder (like I did) then sharing your story online (below) is a great place to start. Just let loose and share... Your story will also help other sufferers to know they're not alone!
