Can't Stop Binge Eating? Mistakes You Could Be Making

How do you respond after a day or weekend of binge eating?

We have all been here. Having just a little bite of a food that we considered "off-limits", but after one bite, a switch is flipped. Suddenly we are riding in the passenger seat, destination: Binge City.


Soon after the binge, guilt and shame sneak in and wrap themselves around you like a weighted blanket. Your chest feels tight, you stomach hurts. As this sinking feeling takes over you begin to drown in the negative thought spiral. ⁣

“Wtf is wrong with me?”⁣

“This is why I’m fat... I always do this.”⁣

"I'm such a disgusting piece of sh*t!"

After sliding into the downward spiral of negative thoughts with your heart racing it’s decided:⁣

You’re gonna start over Monday. Declaring that you need to be super strict by cutting out all the bread/sugar/carbs. No more bullshit. This is gonna be it this time! ⁣

And next weekend a binge happens. ⁣

We always try to “fix” binging by trying a new diet, doubling down on our current diet or workout program. And every single thing that we think is a solution is what continues to perpetuate this cycle. ⁣

After completing a 10 month certification program that focused solely on the psychology of eating, emotional wellness, and binge eating, I was opened up to a world that I’d never known existed.


There is SO much more behind our eating behaviours than food & willpower.


The first step in healing binge eating is to end the period of restriction. This means that your diet has got to go! I know that this can feel terrifying, especially if you have been on a diet for most of your life, but it is the only way to fully heal your relationship with food and your body.
