The binge eating disorder treatment for you

Someone wrote to me the other day, which I’ll paraphrase:

“I started researching overeating disorders the other day and nearly gave up because there was so much stuff. I didn’t know where to start – clinics, books, therapists, support groups. I hate feeling this bloated all the time and I know I have to face the music. I am ready to do the work! But I have no clue about the different treatments. It’s so frustrating that there are so many different treatment options out there. I just want to know what path to pick and begin doing the work.”

First, let’s acknowledge and give this person credit and a huge shout-out. 

Because your first step is reaching out and asking for help.  That’s always your first step. You gotta ask for help. 

I remember in school my teacher would say if you ask a question, you are doing other people a favor because chances are they have the same question too, but are just too shy to ask for help.

Asking for help is no small achievement.

It’s the first step and deserves recognition. So thank you. 

Here’s my YouTube video with my response.

In the video I basically say…

What’s your biggest problem regarding food?

People, feelings, or thoughts?

Just gut feeling. Maybe you have problems with all three.

That’s okay.

But which area causes you the biggest concern – people, feelings, or thoughts? Because here’s my rule of thumb for treatments:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy= thoughts
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy = people
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy = feelings

You can watch my Youtube video for more info.

Now what about you?

What is your biggest problem is around food – people, thoughts, or feelings?
