Breaking Free of Late-Night Eating and Binge Eating

 

Binge-eating disorder is a serious disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food and feel unable to stop eating.

Almost everyone overeats on occasion, but for some people, excessive overeating that feels out of control and becomes a regular occurrence can decrease the quality of your life.

You may be embarrassed about overeating and vow to stop. But you feel such a compulsion that you can't resist the urges and continue binge eating. Luckily, treatment with a Dietitian can help. 

 

Below is a list of behaviors and experiences commonly observed:

 

  • You often try to numb emotions, like sad or angry feelings, with food.

  • People who binge eat have a lot of food in a short period of time (called a “binge” or “binge episode”)

  • Eating unusually large amounts of food in a specific amount of time, such as over a 2-hour period

  • Feeling that your eating behavior is out of control

  • Eating even when you're full or not hungry

  • Eating rapidly during binge episodes

  • Eating until you're uncomfortably full

  • Frequently eating alone or in secret

  • Feeling depressed, disgusted, ashamed, guilty or upset about your eating

  • Frequently dieting, possibly without weight loss

Nutrition therapy is an integral part of the eating disorder recovery process.  The primary role of nutrition therapy is to assist clients in normalizing their eating patterns. 

 

  • Eating adequately to meet the body’s daily nutritional needs

  • A balanced and sustainable relationship with food, free from negative or distorted thoughts about oneself

  • Listening to and trusting your body’s internal cues to determine hunger and fullness
