Emotional eating. How to stop it. And heal yourself - Part 2
One of the things you probably don’t know about me is that I suffered from bulimia.
I struggled with it my entire college.
What is bulimia?
As pe National Eating Disorder Organization, bulimia nervosa – which is the medical term for it – is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by a cycle of bingeing and compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or compensate for the effects of binge eating.
Simply put, my life was a ridiculous cycle of binge eating and vomiting that was happening at least four to five times a day.
So emotional eating and using food to numb my pain and emotions is something I’m closely familiar with.
Had I know back then what I know now about the relationship between food and emotions and about the tools I’m sharing with you in this second part of the conversation I had with Lisa from Love Your Life With Lisa show, my early twenties would have been so different. Heck, my entire life would have been so different.
And unfortunately, like me, there are millions of people in the world suffering from eating disorders.
Whether they’re clinically diagnosed or not, many of these people are suffering in silence and in solitude. Which makes things even worse.
You might have gone through such an experience yourself to a certain degree.
Or maybe you know somebody who’s struggling with it.
If you do, then you don’t wanna miss the 2nd part of my conversation with Lisa on emotional eating. You can watch it below.
If you missed the first part of the conversation on emotional eating and how to stop it, you can find it here:
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”
