Below are a few questions to help you determine if you are binge eating or eating compulsively:
- Do you eat until you are so full you are uncomfortable?
- Do you eat large amounts of food, even when you are not hungry?
- Do you feel your eating is out of control?
- Do you eat alone because you are embarrassed about the amount of food you eat?
- Do you eat what most people believe is a large amount of food?
- Do you eat much more quickly during binging?
- Do you feel depressed, disgusted or guilty after overeating?
If you've answered, "yes," to any of these questions you may have a compulsive eating problem.
While no one is sure what causes compulsive eating, we do know that many compulsive eaters report feeling depressed. Another common thread is that many binge eaters also report being sexually abused. While these issues are common to most, everyone reports that they tend to binge over feelings of sadness, anger, resentment, boredom, anxiety or joy. Regardless of why a person overeats, there are great risks in doing so.
People who give in to compulsive eating tend to experience:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Gallbladder disease
- Bone and joint deterioration
Treatment is available for compulsive overeating. We do not recommend diets. Most people have tried diets and have lost weight only to gain it back again and more. This process might happen several times in a person's life, so it has become referred to as "yo-yo dieting". Rather than dieting, a healthy eating plan is recommended, along with therapy and exercise. Most healthy eating plans lean toward reducing or eliminating sugar and reducing many of the carbohydrates you consume. The key is moderation in whatever type of healthy eating plan you choose. When you reach a point when the "number" does not determine your self worth, quality recovery is not far away.
