6 Essential Tips to Help You Stop Binge Eating for Good

See on Scoop.itHealth and Wellness Center – Elevate Christian Network

You’re scared of putting on weight, you’re disgusted with your actions, but the absolute worst part is how out of control you feel. It’s like you can’t trust yourself anymore.  You’ve tried everything to stop binge eating, but nothing seems to work.

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Taking care of yourself is important. No one ever binged when they were feeling at ease and at peace. Dedicating time just for yourself is going to be crucial to stop binge eating for good.

If you define yourself as unfit, out of control, or having no willpower, then you’re setting yourself up for failure. So rather than labeling yourself as “a binge eater,” rather than telling yourself “I’m out of control,” realize that there is nothing wrong with you.

Reeling in negative emotions, in some cases, is very difficult, but not impossible.  Sometimes, the emotions we feel can get the best of us, causing us to say or do what we will later regret.

Most emotions can be controlled by bringing awareness to what you are feeling and using practical strategies to overcome them. If you are experiencing strong emotions, you need to figure out the stimulus that caused these feelings.

What Emotions Are You Feeling?

Your emotional experience is broken down into three elements; body language and behaviors, visceral reactions, and thoughts. Sometimes, you may clearly feel one emotion, while, at other times, you may experience a spectrum of emotions.

Pinpoint the Source of Your Emotions

If you are experiencing strong emotions, you need to figure out the stimulus that caused these feelings. This is especially true if you find yourself getting upset often. Think back over the last few hours or days, consider the people you have talked to and the topics of the conversations you have had.  See full story…
