Stage 3: Severe Bingeing

Copy of Eating Spectrum (3)
Your score was The obtained quiz result points out of a possible 46.

Scores in the 27-46 range indicate stage 3: severe Binge eating behavior.

This stage might sound very hopeless and confusing to be in but I want to assure you that it is very possible to overcome. 

It is characterized by uncontrollable cravings triggered by a combination of hunger due to restriction and unpleasant emotions, followed by extreme feelings of guilt and shame.

You watch helplessly as you self-sabotage. You just can't help yourself or stop yourself

You also feel disassociated from your body, like it doesn't belong to you or it's broken, which can cause feelings of hate and judgment towards your body.

Your attempts at losing weight feel hopeless because these binging habits are in the way. Weeks of hard work undone by a few binges.

You also know a lot about nutrition and wellness from past programs, but that’s still not enough to stop binging. 

Something is blocking you from being in control of what you put in your body.

We need to work on whatever is making you lose control of your actions. Dieting will never work because it requires you to be control of your actions.

My name is Jared and I’m a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor who struggled with binge eating for over 6 years.

After overcoming binging myself and working with others suffering from it for 4 years, I’ve come to the conclusion that overeating is only the tip of the iceberg.

Most people or programs attempt to overcome overeating only by focusing on the tip of that iceberg, which doesn’t work because the majority of the iceberg lies below the surface.

That is why the majority of people who struggle with binging have been stuck in the same cycle for years.

I finally overcame it after working on what is below the surface via journaling

Since then I’ve created a journaling method to uproot causes of binge eating which has helped countless people like you overcome overeating once and for all.

I designed Eating Enlightenment Program, which is a 12-week program fully equipped to help you overcome binging in the most effective way possible, by focusing on the root causes of binging via journaling.

Many people are in disbelief at how quickly they can overcome it. Countless people have been through my program and they all say they’ve never seen this approach anywhere else.

I’m inviting you to a 30 minute conversation where together we can learn how this program can work for you. Scroll below to read what others have to say about it!

Before I started these calls, I was overwhelmed with information on the Internet about how to stop bingeing. It has been immensely helpful to be taught how to journal and the reason why I’m journaling. Also, learning how to journal on a step-by-step basis made it not an overwhelming task. I have been able to pinpoint multiple times when I would normally have binged because I paused and took time to journal, I was able to avoid it entirely.

The first word that comes to mind is NORMAL. At week 6, I noticed a significant change, and it was my breakthrough. Before week 6&7, it was my internal dialogue. I could NOT say ‘no’ to binge eating even when I was full. That has all changed now because I realized it is so much more than just telling myself ‘no.’ The method here that goes beyond saying ‘no’ to myself is journaling… while every method had some value, I’d say journaling was the missing piece to my success

Working with Jared made me believe that food does not have power over me—it is fuel. I always thought it was wrong to feel and process anger and many other emotions. I was taught to “soldier on,” and this seems effective, but ultimately it steers you away from the true information source which is our emotions. It is life-changing to truly understand that emotions are sources of information, not pain.

My bingeing got so bad that I was easily spending over $200 a week just on food for myself from restaurants. My body was on the brink of growing out of all the clothes I had, and I had no other online store that would have had any bigger sizes. I used to believe that I would get bigger and bigger until I became disabled and chronically ill. I was surprised by how effective journaling was at breaking the cycle of my thoughts around food and stressful events.

I did continue to journal and access my eating patterns and my feelings when I ate. I can proudly say I haven’t binged for about a month! I’m so proud of myself and you were a big part of this journey in my life. I want you to know you did help me a lot in the time we did work together.

My name is Jared and I’m a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. 

Previously, I struggled with binge eating and marijuana addiction for over 6 years. 

I grew up in an autistic family environment, so I never learned about emotions or my body.

I felt terribly confused about hunger, how to connect to my body and I always carried a terrible burden - everything was my fault. 

Because I never got the love I needed as a child, I blamed myself and thought I was broken.

I dropped out of college I went on a journey of self-discovery, including living for 13 months without internet as a Buddhist Monk, and that’s when everything changed.

I learned the psychological root causes of binging and used this insight to conquer my issues. I created Eating Enlightenment to help others do the same and would be grateful to help you too.
