Hello, I’m Rick Taylar, and this is Weight Loss Mindset!

Binge eating is a terrible condition that can turn deadly.

It may not seem life-threatening, but it's more than just a physical issue

If you suspect you're might be a binger, then get help fast!


Binge eating is more than just eating a large meal or overeating during the holidays.

It’s a damaging mental eating disorder.

So what can we call binge eating?

When you sit down and continue eating large amounts of food in one meal way beyond the point of being full. Even to the point of discomfort. Well, that's binge eating.

How binge eating causes harm

Binging doesn't just cause physical consequences, but also emotional ones. Often they're quite dramatic. It causes feelings of anxiety and depression, not to mention self-hatred and shame.

This can set the person up for a terrible cycle. As we've discussed before, these same kinds of feelings can actually trigger a binge. This continuing eating behavior greatly increases more feelings of loneliness, anger, sadness, and depression.

Where can a person get help for bingeing?

It's worth trying meditation. Find a good teacher and practice every day. The key is to practice every day, even if you don't feel like it.

You could try seeking help from a good counselor. They can help you to find and understand the reasons for your eating behaviors. They’ll also give you coping mechanisms to prevent the action.

There's no doubt that bingeing on food is a serious problem, and also life-threatening. When you can't deal with it by yourself you must find professional care from a qualified therapist or medical doctor if you need it.

Therapy can be very successful. Find a therapist who's good at dealing with binge eating.

A dietician can help with creating an optimum eating plan and the right exercise. This will get you on the right track without having to give up on all the things you love.

In some severe binge eating cases, you may need to stay in a clinical eating disorders setting. But start with your doctor and a therapist first. These are your first steps for getting binge eating under control and stopped.
