Now, you may want to first off seek for professional help, after which you can make changes to your diet, and begin a sufficient exercise routine. You will begin to then take care of yourself emotionally (most people neglect this important aspect) and look towards your next steps in recovery.
I’ve put together this guide to help you recover from binge eating disorder and finally see the light in the tunnel to enjoying food without guilt once again!
1. Seek Professional Help
The first step is to seek professional help.
This can be in the form of therapy, counseling, or even a support group. You need to find someone who understands what you’re going through and can help you work through your issues. Heeding professional help is the first step to remedying the situation. Attending therapy sessions and educating oneself on the matter is vital in order to fully understand and accept what is happening. Only then can steps be taken to progressing in a positive direction.
If you’re looking for professional help with your diet, a dietitian can be a great resource.
2. Make Changes to Your Diet
The second step is to start making changes to your diet.
One of the most important things you can do to overcome binge eating disorder is to develop a healthy relationship with food. This means learning to listen to your hunger cues and eating in response to those cues, rather than in response to emotions.
It also means making peace with food and letting go of the idea that certain foods are “good” or “bad.” Gaining a better understanding of nutrition can also be helpful.
Most importantly, remember that recovery is possible and you are not alone.
This may mean eating your fear foods AKA foods mostly called ‘bad’ to reduce binge eating episodes. Focusing not putting any restrictions together with eating regular, balanced meals. Can help reduce binge eating episodes.
3. Begin an Exercise Routine
The third step is to begin an exercise routine.
It is important to know that you should be exercising not to focus on ‘burning’ off weight, but rather to build a healthy relationship with your body. Ensuring that you are exercising, taking note of how precious your body is and noting all the things it can do, can help re-focus your thinking away from food and see all the ways food can help fuel your activities.
So what’s the best way to get started? While there are many different ways to approach fitness, the most important thing is to find something that you enjoy and that you can stick with. If you hate running, don’t force yourself to do it just because someone told you it’s the best way to lose weight. Choose an activity that you can see yourself doing on a regular basis, whether it’s going for walks, joining a yoga class, or lifting weights. And don’t forget to have fun with it!
Exercise has been shown to be extremely beneficial for people suffering from binge eating disorder. It can help release endorphins, which can help to improve your mood.
Start by waking up earlier each day. Then, make time for a morning jog or walk. Add in some strength training a few times a week. And lastly, make sure to schedule in some rest days to let your body recover. But if you find those activities as big steps, start small, as something as simple as walking will make a massive difference – As long as you start increasing physical activity in any form.
4. Take Care of Yourself Emotionally
The fourth and final step is to make sure you’re taking care of yourself emotionally. This means dealing with the stress and anxiety that may be triggering your binge eating episodes. Meditation, journaling, and deep breathing exercises can all be helpful in this regard.
Be honest with yourself about how you’re feeling and giving yourself space to process your emotions. It also means reaching out to your support network, whether that’s friends, family, or a therapist. Taking care of yourself emotionally is an important part of self-care and will help you in every other area of your life.
