I used to be addicted to food and live with binge eating on a daily (and nightly) basis.
It’s something that I used to always hide.
It’s even hard to believe I’m writing this essay now – because I used to never admit my binge eating to anybody.
I continued to live with binge eating through my college years – onward through job challenges – break ups – and even when I was pregnant – and then a newbie mom.
I’d devour bags of popcorn and chips.
And I mean those family size bags.
One handful would turn into two handfuls – then I’d lose count of the handfuls – as I lost myself in my eating.
It’s obvious to me now when I look back at my binging: I was addicted to food.
Food helped me to numb my uncomfortable emotions and distract me from unwanted thoughts.
I’d feel good in the moment – but horrible afterwards.
After a binge, I felt a lot of shame… and regret… and anger at myself.
Plus I felt physically uncomfortable in my body.
I wound up gaining about 90 pounds on my 5 foot 3 frame.
And, no, I was not pregnant with a teenager. 🙂
Looking back I now realize I was using pregnancy as an excuse to binge eat.
My doctor called me to tell me my health was in danger – with dangerously high cholesterol.
At the time I was a newbie mom – and realized I needed to get honest with myself about my food addiction – so I’d be there for my son.
I recognized that going on another diet wouldn’t help – because it was not WHAT I was eating that was my problem.
It was WHY I was overeating.
So I went into research geek mode. I read piles of studies on binge eating, stress eating, body dysmorphia, food addiction – you name it.
Plus I interviewed our world’s top experts on stress eating, self sabotage, nutrition, food addiction, etc…
Each of these tools worked – and I finally started to let go of my food obsessed thoughts.
Pretty soon, my underlying urge to binge eat disappeared – and food lost its power over me!
And I’ve kept the weight off for about a decade now!
Friends, family and clients began to ask me to help them to stop emotional eating too!
So I decided to create a convenient video course – called Stop Emotional Eating.
This is a self-paced video course – you keep for life – which shares all the psychological tricks I now use to stop my bad eating patterns for good!
Stop Emotional Eating will help you to…
You can watch the videos at your pace – at your place – even while wearing pajamas!
