Do you struggle with binge eating? Does eating high fat and sugary food give you a high that make you feel good and comforted? Does the consequence of binge eating affect you financially as well as your health? Do you often feel isolated and lonely? Do you feel shame and stigma with how you are dealing with your feelings? Would you like to stop eating down your feelings and learn better ways to deal with them, as well as deal with anxiety, depression and other relational issues that may be masked up with the binge eating?

When people turn to food for comfort from loneliness, isolation, depression, anxiety, anger, these are all issues that are actually feeling issues, not food problems. Too often people think binge eating is a matter of will power or a dieting issue, when in fact, binge eating is often a person’s best attempt to regulate really big feelings that they don’t know how to deal with. Typical feelings that people will eat down are anger, anxiety, depression, procrastination is often a source of anxiety that results in people binge eating.

Many people carry a lot of stigma and shame and are afraid of seeking help because they feel embarrassed. They think that they are weak, have bad will power and often beat themselves up.
