Do you binge or overeat and feel out of control?

There are many reasons we binge or overeat. Going on another diet will not help but only add fuel to the fire.

In this latest episode of Speaking of Hungry, I talk about:

✨ the top reasons my clients struggle with binge eating,

✨ steps to identify triggers, and plan for when the next one will come along,

✨ what actions we need to take so that we don't turn to food as a coping mechanism when we are not physically hungry.

Here are some other episodes you don't want to miss that are related to the topic of binges:

#2 - reflecting on how diets interfered with your life

#3 - how to slowly get rid of dieting tools you may still use.

#4 - identifying hidden forms of dieting you may still engage in but don’t realize you are and how it interferes with your work to become more intuitive.
