Help for binge eaters

Postby reester33 » Sat Jul 07, 2007 11:12 pm

Hi all,

I've been doing an online program on the reasons behind emotional eating and binges. It's very good if you want to pay money for 12 weeks of online "shrink" sessions. :lol:

There is a free session which asks questions then gives very informative info on why we binge and about bad habits.

The sessions go more in-depth and looks at replacing bad behaviours with good ones. I'm up to week 6 so far and it's been really good for me.

Check it out at:

The signs of Emotional Eating are:

Your hunger comes on suddenly

You have intense food cravings

You keep eating even after you're full

You feel guilty after you eat

You always find yourself looking forward to what you'll eat next


Me exactly :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yeah, I was the same too. What really got me was I had all 10 of the bad food habits but they give you ways of changing those bad ones for good ones....

The 10 Habits of the Successful Weight Manager
1) Listening to your Body (stop eating when your stomach says you're full);
2) Hunger management (don't let yourself get too hungry otherwise you eat too much);
3) Bouncing back after binges;
4) Keeping your weight in mind when choosing what to eat and what to avoid;
5) Avoiding junk food;
6) exercise ENOUGH (ie: don't just go for a walk down to the corner store and say you exercised);
7) portion control;
8) binge prevention (find out what your emotional triggers are and develop strategies to recognise when you may binge in order to prevent them);
9) savouring my food (not just eating slower - don't be distracted!); and
10) Choosing a well-balanced diet (ie: something that you'll stick to).

The week 5 session which I'm doing at the moment is really interesting and talks about "emotional hunger" rather than simply "emotional eating". This is a big step in turning your hunger switch off and turning your good thinking on.

We will be focusing on the “unfinished business” in your life — this is the unmet needs, unresolved relationship tensions, and unrealized dreams that you carry with you. You turn off your hunger switch by attending to your emotional hunger.

I signed up for this yesterday, and did the introductory session. It is very interesting the difference between emotional and physical hunger. Helps to recognise the difference :) Now I have homework lol..

SarahC if you don't mind me asking how much does the programme cost?

I so need to undertand the reasons behind my binge/emotional eating. I went on the site and it doesn't actually say how much it cost and I'm on a tight uni student budget. If it's not to expensive I am going to do it.

binge eating strategies

Postby bear » Wed Sep 05, 2007 10:09 pm

Hi I'm the biggest binge eater ever!! When I blow out I go off the deep end but a friend of mine said she doesn't restrict herself when it comes to food and has that piece of chocolate if she wants it! ( she is tiny and not a ounce of fat on her) I think I'll try that and see how it goes- hopefully end my binges ( I'll keep you posted and let you know if it works)

Good luck bear! I'm doing similar at the moment... I have two chocolate bars which I am attempting to eat just two small pieces at a time, not the entire thing at once. Next challenge will then be a tub of icecream... one serving per day, as opposed to the whole tub in one day hahahahha!!

The program was US$120, which I think worked out to be around $135 Australian, depending on the exchange rate I guess. It is pretty good though, just a matter of finding the time to sit down and work on it...

Hmm, I've been experiencing those symptons recently. I'm a big believer of eating only when you're hungry and I've been really hungry a lot. Only thing is I don't feel guilty.
