Though there are several non-medical approaches one can try out to treat a binge eating disorder, it is imperative that you give professional therapy a go as well. Through therapy you’ll be better able to fight the compulsive eating habit.

There are two main types of professional therapies that you can look into.

Interpersonal psychotherapy

Interpersonal therapy hinges around resolving relationship or interpersonal issues. The treatment’s main focus is to help patients deal with relationship problems that trigger their binge eating routine. The psychotherapists will also assist the patients to develop better communication skills, by helping them articulate their emotions in a more lucid way. Plus the therapy will also help the patient to build better and stronger relationships with your close ones.

Cognitive-behavioral treatment

This particular therapy targets to deal and treat the behavioral and mental imbalances that trigger compulsive eating. It focuses on teaching one why and how they resort to food in order to suppress their emotions. During the course of the therapy patients also learn about things and issues that really set their binging buzzers off and how they can fight these triggers. Additionally, the treatment also involves acquiring adequate knowledge about nutrition and relaxation therapies.

 Convince him or her to go to a professional if they are really serious about wanting to control their issue. Professionals can offer them emotional, psychological and practical help that might really help them to break the binge eating habit. The more they delay taking care of this disorder the harder it will be to tame.

Be there for them.

Try to be as supportive as you can be. Listen to what they have to say and share without judging them and let them know that you’ll be there for them and that you care enough for them to help them out with this problem. During their period of recovery or rehabilitation, even if this person happens to slip up, be supportive even then and assure them that they can still fight their way out of this issue.

Learn to manage your stress through more effective means.

The culprit behind binge eating usually is excessive stress- stress related to personal life, stress form professional life, stress of being overweight etc. In order to control the binging you need to find healthier ways to handle stress instead of just gorging on heaps of food. A few things you can try out include meditation, exercise or any other therapies that will help you to relax.

Aim to eat healthy, filling, nutritious meals.

Make it a habit to eat healthy foods that are loaded with fiber, protein, good fats and carbs. This will ensure that your hunger hormones stay at bay which as a result will keep you from binging. Do not skip your meals, especially breakfast. Going hungry for long hours will only exacerbate your binging disorder. If you need to snack, help yourself to healthy treats such as fruits, nuts, whole-grain cookies made with honey, oven baked chips etc.

Get rid of the junk food lying in your cupboards.

If there is any junk food lying around the house, it will only tempt you and you probably won’t be able to control the urge to chuck it all down. So get rid of all the unhealthy, processed foods and replace them with healthier versions of those foods such as you could substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate, flour based cupcakes for wholegrain , sugar free cupcakes and so on

weight gain!

Binge eating disorder is described as one suffering from compulsive overeating- a condition where people chomp through huge amounts of food. Such individuals simply have no control over what or how much they are consuming and are completely powerless to make themselves stop.

The symptoms of binge eating disorder commonly commence during late stages of adolescent years and often occur after the concerned patient goes through an extreme diet program- where they restrict their calories way too much. Binge eaters frequently eat even when they’re not hungry and or even when they are completely full.

The principle characteristics of binge eating disorder also include the individuals feeling extremely upset throughout or after the bingeing period. Moreover, unlike people who suffer from bulimia, binge eaters do not try to make up for the binges by vomiting, fasting or working out excessively. Moreover, individuals with binge eating disorder suffer from feelings of regret, repulsion, and despair. They beat themselves up about how the binges would affect their bodies and also for lacking self-control.

Binge eating causes you to gain weight, which only exacerbates the compulsive eating cycle. Binge eating can also lead to diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer, heart diseases, and inflammation.
