“I can’t stop binge eating!”
Back in the day, when I owned my fitness company and was a personal trainer (and struggling with my own disordered eating), this was something I heard frequently from quite a few of my clients. I think they especially felt safe to share this with me because I also studied holistic nutrition, and figured I’d probably be able to help.
But it sucked, because I didn’t know how to help them. Back then, I didn’t know that binge eating has NOTHING to do with food.
Back then, I was trying my best to teach all the “tried and true” methods that were beat over the head with by the $80 billion weight loss industry.
Things like willpower, discipline, or quick-fix fad diets…all of which (obviously) don’t actually work. These are bullshit bandaids for bullet wounds.
But you know what? It’s a good thing I struggled with food and my body.
Because it was only from going through my own painful journey that I realized the truth.
I learned the REAL way to stop binge eating: we need to stop externalizing an internal problem, because the more emphasis we put on food and weight loss, the worse the problem gets.
Meal plans, exercise regimes, supplements, or anything else OUTSIDE of us will never fill the internal need of self-love and self worth. You think you need to lose 10 pounds, but what you really need is unconditional self-love. To overcome binge eating, you need to go DEEPER.
You need to address the core issue.
You need to connect back into your body.
You need to feel in order to heal.
And if you really want to Lose it… You’ve gotta love it.
When you fundamentally heal (aka: love) what is creating the urge to overeat in the first place, then the behaviors will take care of themselves.
If you’re looking for real solutions to end dieting forever, discover deeper worthiness and love yourself to the core, working with a qualified coach is immensely powerful in making real strides to ending this behavior.
