I believe that breaking free of binge eating has nothing to do with willpower and everything to do with understanding your why.
What are you running from? What is it you're trying to push down, or deal with? And what do you really need?
You're Not Alone
It's time to speak the truth about binge and emotional eating. And the truth is this - no matter how bad you think you are, you are not alone. Everyday I speak with women who are emotional eaters. Compulsive. The common thread is not just that they feel unable to stop the urge to eat and eat and eat, but that they feel completely alone. As though nobody else acts this way, eats this way.
But yet -
The typical binge eater is successful. Driven. A high achiever. I work with women who are fit, in shape, in control, leaders. Women whose friends come to them and wonder how they do it all. Women who feel that they are falling apart and that nobody would possibly understand who they really are.
In The Secret Life of a Binge Eater I share some of the stories of these women, and I share the story of my own decade long journey as a bulimic and binge eater - all the while working as a fitness and health 'guru'.
If I can break free of binge and emotional eating for life, then so too can you.
You Have Nothing to be Ashamed Of.
This disease, this compulsion? It's nothing to be ashamed of. I want you to know that.
It's not that you are weak. Have poor willpower, or discipline. Just look at other areas of your life if you want proof! But because it is something we learn to hide, to do only in private, it's easy to surround it with shame. To feel terrified of anyone finding out. Well -
You don't have to share your story publicly as I have done (it took me years to build up the courage to do, but I'm so glad I did). But just in reading this book know this -
It's okay to love yourself, even though you overeat.
It's okay to be proud of yourself.
It's okay to create your dream life.
And you can and will break free of this.
Your Binge Eating Is A Sign of Something Missing.
The truth is that your eating, your binging, is simply a sign of something that is missing.
It's pushing down stress. Or helping you deal with a life not quite on purpose. Helping you to escape the reality that you don't want to face.
You Can Be Free - For Life. Let Me Show You How.
I will show you how to figure our where your binging stems from. I'll teach you specific exercises and mantras to use to give yourself what you need in a healthy way. To understand yourself.
It's not about 'distraction techniques'. It's about getting to the heart of this beast. Recognising too, that it has served you in some way.
And day by day, creating the life you actually want to live so that the need to eat slowly but surely just - fades away.
This can be your reality. And it can start today.
About The Author
I've been a successful personal trainer, nutrition coach, and fitness and fat loss writer for 15 years now.
I spent over 10 of those years binge eating, and about 7 of those years (off and on) as a bulimic.
I was successful, in shape, admired.
Broken, full of despair, certain I could never escape.
Slowly I was able to escape the clutches of binge eating and create my dream life. As I did so, I recorded my story and eventually the stories of countless other women. I also recorded the journaling and mindset work I had to do to break free. I'm so honoured to be able to share this with you, and help you too to become free of binge and emotional eating for life.
