#21 – I Struggle with Binge Eating but i Need to Lose Weight For my Health Condition to Improve!

Share this post

Binge eating recovery requires you to let go of restrictions and dieting is a massive form of restriction. So what do you do if you need to lose weight but you’re stuck being torn between binge eating recovery and losing weight for your health? Let’s get stuck in to this episode of binge dietitian podcast!
The 3 Tips I would recommend to reduce binge eating but also improve your health:
#1 Try to incorporate regular meals and snacks into your diet + honour your hunger. Binge eating is a signal from our body that there are unmet needs that need to be met – often times, we binge eat because we are so deprived psychologically by restricting the foods we love or even whole food groups such as sugar or carbs – or we are depriving ourselves physically so we become so hungry we have an intense urge to binge! So including regular meals and snacks – your breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, and dinner would calm your hunger pangs down and include foods you enjoy throughout the day to reduce the craving for them.
#2 Incorporate healthy habits to improve your health markers. Studies show that if you incorporate healthy habits such as increasing, fruit and veg intake, daily physical activity, consuming alcohol moderately, and not smoking, you can be metabolically healthy despite your weight.
#3 If you choose to lose weight still, remember that you will have to tackle binge eating first in most cases before chasing weight loss. Struggling with binge eating and restricting is a never-ending battle but once you escape the cycle of bingeing and restricting, you will be in a much more sustainable, healthy relationship with food to reach your goals of weight loss.
