Do I Have Binge Eating Disorder?
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Life is tough.
It isn't fair and sometimes, our personal baggage can get the better of us.
It's strange how the human mind works.
It's wondrous in its complexities, and how we deal with our personal struggles is even more complex.
But if you’re like thousands of Americans out there, you too have begun to fill the void in your life with food.
There are a few stages that take time to develop and mature into complete binge eating.
Looking at our Binge Eating Disorder Quiz can help you understand what you’re dealing with and what level of help you may need.
It’s simple, with results coming through instantly upon completion.
But remember, your results are tied to something bigger than just food and how you eat.
Our emotions are hard to deal with.
We sometimes lack the tools to deal with them.
We push through our trauma and protect ourselves.
Denial may help ease the pain, but it manifests in other areas of our life.
Sometimes we feel powerless… we have no control over our lives.
There is a sense that your choices and your current situation are meaningless.
So we eat - we can control that.
Control - something you’re desperate to exert but just don’t know how to.
You’ve tried diets and even managed your health more proactively.
You’ve even tried your hardest to stay out of the kitchen and focus on your appetite.
Slimming pills often feature somewhere in the routine of denial, and we relapse when we see little to no results.
"I felt like there was no point in trying anymore. Why bother, you know?
Nothing I do now is going to change what I’ve become, and worrying about it just leaves me anxious and feeling terrible about myself.”
Accepting your situation even though it makes you dreadfully unhappy is not a victory.
You’re effectively giving power and control to your binge eating.
Trust me, you cannot bury your feelings about yourself.
Make use of our intelligent Binge Eating Disorder Quiz - find the source of your pain.
Every glance in a mirror, every shopping experience...will haunt you.
When we run away from our problems, they gain control and grow, becoming more powerful with each passing day.

A slave to the void, it's a problem and you need to deal with it positively before it consumes you and ruins your life.
(If it hasn't already.)
You're human, and you need to forgive yourself.
We all have our demons and struggle to overcome them, but we must not lose faith in ourselves.
All you need is help.
