How to Prevent From Binge

By: peterhutch

Binge-eating disorder involves both weight and eating-disorder concerns, researchers in both the obesity and eating-disorders fields perceive treatment goals through the lens of their own training. On one side of the debate, eating-disorders experts believe binge-eating is best treated by traditional eating-disorder approaches, such as helping patients reduce or eliminate bingeing, improving their self-esteem and body acceptance, and treating underlying psychological problems such as depression and anxiety.

People who suffer from this disorder do not have control over their eating. Food becomes a gateway to suppress their emotion. All your emotions are canalized in one direction which later on creates more problems.

Make yourself wait 20 minutes before you succumb. Most food cravings that aren't due to hunger will subside in that time. If not--if you're still hungry after 20 minutes--then you probably do need food.

Psychotherapy can involve a significant time and financial commitment. You are worth it! Particularly if you are struggling with other issues (sexual abuse, depression, substance use, relationship problems) psychotherapy can be very helpful in addressing not only your disordered eating, but also your overall emotional health and happiness. Cognitive-behavioral therapy includes standard elements of behavioral treatment with a focus on identifying and altering dysfunctional thought patterns, attitudes and beliefs which may trigger and perpetuate binge eating disorder.

Hold your breath just smelling a fresh-baked cupcake in the break room can induce the insulin secretion that makes you think you're hungry. Sight activates the appetite snowball too, so avert your eyes.

Eat 5 to 6 meals a day, spaced evenly out.? Constant small Meals prevent hunger and decreases carbohydrate and sugar Cravings.? Smaller, more frequent meals will keep you full, and convince your body that it is not starving.? Constant feeding will prevent binges.?

You will need to erase everything negative in your mind that is associated with change and focus on what good will come from it. There are so many things that you can think of. For example, you will be a healthier person. You will feel better about yourself. You will start to like yourself. You won't feel like you are leading a double or secret life. You will not worry about when or how you will binge next. You will finally have a normal relationship with food. Most importantly, you will finally be happy.

Drink, drink, drink, but water this time. Alcohol has likely dehydrated your body. You need to give it the water it needs to recover. Drinking fruit juice gives you some hydration and also helps burn off any remaining alcohol. Also, having a couple cups of bouillon broth is a good idea. In addition to adding water, it will also give you some of the potassium and salt you need to replenish.

Cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic treatment with a family systems focus and in the context of a secure treatment relationship is most beneficial. Typically, the elements that drive these disorders include brain and body chemistry, physiology, unhealthy eating and other behavioral patterns, emotions, and sociability issues. All of these factors need to be addressed simultaneously in order to attain optimal treatment results.
