Recovery from Binge Eating IS Possible – I Have Recovered and You Can Too

by nina on December 25, 2013

Binge eating is a very common type of eating disorder – although it is often not classified as being a traditional eating disorder. There is so much shame and secrecy surrounding binge eating, overeating, night time eating and other manifestations of uncontrollable eating followed by guilt and shame.

You Are Not Alone

It is sad that so many people are suffering in silence, unable to give voice to their pain or reach out for help.

It is also sad that the disorder operates in a way to make you feel like there is something wrong with you and that you are the only person who eats that way. That you are fundamentally flawed, incurable and to never let anyone know about the binge eating.

I hope this message can reach anyone who is suffering from binge eating, compulsive overeating, bulimia, anorexia and all the other manifestations and “grey” areas… YOU CAN RECOVER and YOU ARE NOT ALONE…

I was a chronic binge eater too

I would either be on a strict diet or meal plan, in conjunction with a ridiculously high intensity exercise regime, that would last for a maximum of a few weeks. That was my absolute maximum. Sometimes I could only maintain it for a day or two.

When I inevitably fell off the diet, meal plan or total starvation, I would go on binge eating episodes that were devastating. Consuming more food than people would normally eat in a week in a matter of hours. Then doing it again the next day, unable to meet my obligations, socialize or concentrate on anything other that food, weight and how much I hated myself.

That was over 7 years ago…

Today it looks very different. My behavior is a complete 180 degree difference.

People who didn’t know me then cannot even believe the stories or even the idea that I had an eating disorder.

Binge eating disorder recovery is possible and you can be COMPLETELY FREE. This is what my recovery looks like today…

I eat things that I feel like and the feeling of hunger comes from my body not my brain. I do not restrict or cut out any food, I eat when I want, the amounts that feel right to me and as soon as I feel full I stop. I never count the calories, fat or carb content. I simply do not care.

Most importantly I never think about the meal again. There is no guilt or shame, no figuring out whether I have to burn off calories or whether I ate less and therefore can splurge a bit later on.

Those calculations have left my brain and I am so grateful for it because it allows me to be present in my life. To think about things that actually matter. To be able to concentrate on work, listening to friends, planning trips to different countries and generally engaging in things that I am passionate about.

That is how I have been living for over 7 years. I was also scared that full recovery from binge eating was not possible – because so many people, including professionals and therapists, would tell me that I would always need to manage it and that the best outcome would be to just minimize the occurrence of the binge eating episodes.

That to me was NOT freedom and I knew that there had to be another way…

I have found another way and there are not a lot of people talking about it and my mission is to spread the message to as amny people as possible that you can completely recover from binge eating, bulimia, anorexia and all other eating disorders.

Complete recovery means that you are not just “managing it” but that the mental obsession, compulsion to binge and body hatred is totally removed. That has been my experience and I have seen and coached many other people who also now have full recovery.

Stay strong, do not lose faith!

If I could do it, you can too

Love & Hope

Nina 🙂
