Eating Disorder Recovery ~ Binge Eating Disorder

The Wisdom of Your Body, Mind & Spirit

Ironically, eating disorders aren’t about food at all. Rather, people with Binge Eating Disorder use food to feel in control and to cope with painful emotions such as anger, self-loathing, vulnerability and panic. Attempts to control weight with inappropriate use of laxatives, diuretics, diet pills (over the counter and prescription) all fuel a false sense of control and represent futile attempts to manage painful feelings that seem otherwise unmanageable.

Individuals suffering from Binge Eating Disorder focus on food and body weight as a way to attempt to take control of life. Developing eating habits based on moods and feelings are often serious signs that someone is suffering with an eating disorder.
