All of us have overeaten but binging is overeating on steroids. It’s often associated with an eating disorder but some have binging problems because of a physiological issue.
In our world of striving for the perfect body and judging those who carry excess weight, I see lots of chronic dieters. Can you relate? Do you restrict your calories all day, suppress your appetite, and fear food during the day just to find yourself binging later in the day? This is not lack of will power; it is a physiological response. Your body is trying to survive and you’re not providing enough calories so the body sends strong signals to eat.
Stop torturing your body by artificially restricting the calories that your body needs. Give up the damaging effects of dieting. Start learning to see food as nourishment and yes, enjoying it thoroughly. When that battle ends, that’s when we end our frustrating cycle of diet-binge. Do you need help embracing a loving relationship with food?
