The Good News

Is binge or compulsive eating taking over your life? If so, I have some good news for you: there is a opendoorway out.

I know what I’m talking about, having been a compulsive eater for almost 3 decades. And I can honestly say that I’m in successful recovery. If I had to put a figure on it, I’d say that I have dismantled about 95% of my urge to eat compulsively – all without dieting, expensive behaviour modification programs or bonkers weight loss supplements.

Imagine being able to put it all behind you: the secrecy and shame of it, its addictive nature and surprising power to rule your life – it’s the way you behave around food (rather than the food itself) that knocks you off your feet.

How to Dismantle Binge Eating

(Binge eating and compulsive eating are sister problems, and I use the same techniques to deal with both).

The truth is that crazed, chaotic eating is not greediness gone mad, nor is it a life sentence.

It’s a message.

Imagine you’re driving your car one day, and all of a sudden it starts to slow down and then grinds to a halt. What do you do?

Well, initially you might try the ignition. But then you look under the bonnet (okay, you may need someone else to take a look as well, but the point is that you need to go inside the machine for the cause of the breakdown).

Just as your car juddering to a halt is a message that you need to look inside it, so your compulsive eating is a message telling you that you need to look at something in your life. Dieting, detoxing or over exercising are useless here, as you might have experienced. They do not get rid of the urge to eat compulsively.

The compulsive or binge eating may have either a nutritional cause, or emotional/life challenge at its root. It may be a mix of both.

This is great news (even if it doesn’t feel like it right now) – because you can actually do something about it. Challenges are not missions impossible. As the physically challenged tennis star Roger Crawford said:

Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional
