- Psychological Issues
I was a binge eater for over 20 years. For me binge eating meant that I ate WAY PAST the comfortable place of feeling full – eating to the point of pain sometimes after eating so much food.
Binge eating was a frenzied hectic behavior for me – where food became the primary focus and everything else was ignored. A binge might last from 1 – 4 hours and during that time everything – even the food would become a blur. The only thing on my mind was eating another bite of something I considered a “forbidden” food such as chocolate, or caramel, or high calorie full fat haagen dazs ice cream, or deep dish pizza, or potato chips, or nachos with loads of cheese.

There is a natural way to be free of binge eating. I suffered from Binge Eating for over 20 years and I have recovered from it. It was a dark lonely place and I am so glad to be healed and healthy and happy and free from the food issues that seemed to control so much of my life. You can be free too.
