The Connection Between Emotional & Binge Eating

Emotional Eating is the association with food and emotions. They can be pleasant
or unpleasant. The quantity of food consumed can be small or large.

Binge eating is related with a large quantity of emotional eating-akin to
stuffing one's face-finishing the whole bag of potato chips or the quart of ice
cream. Binge eating is also usually connected with a non nutritious source of

However, most people do not understand that their eating is emotionally based.
They just think that they have an eating problem. Or they have come to accept
that they are genetically predisposed to overeating. Thus overeating is just
some vague problem.

Of course they know the answer to the problem is to cut down on the quantity of
food they consume. But, the only approach they know is to look in the direction
of diets for a diet does cut down on the quantity of food.

And of course there are so many different diets-all aimed at a different theory
to reduce hunger and make dieting palatable.

There are two basic mistakes with dieting that leads eventually to the binge
that ends the diet. The first mistake is that dieting is associated with a
scarcity mind set. The individual is constantly thinking about what he/she can't
eat, must give up, or do without. This mind set contributes to anxiety which
feeds an emotional rollercoaster for which they are unprepared.

The second mistake is that diets only focus on awareness of food. Not that
awareness is bad, in fact awareness is good. However, awareness is only a viable
technique for handling habitual eating-eating out of habit and never addresses
the issue of emotional eating. And because we have so little training in
effective techniques to handle emotions, one is totally incapable of handling
the emotional component of say “feeling bad about one's self.”

Inevitably one fighting the battle of the bulge will have occasion to feel badly
about oneself-it's simply common nature that something will happen where he/she will not live up to expectations and bang-there's a feeling of rejection,
upset, remorse, disappointment… Being ill equipped to handle these most basic of
feelings leads one to eat something-usually something sweet. This only compounds
a self loathing feeling which leads to eating more of sweet and the pay off with
the compound interest of a self hatred binge. Every bite is, “It tastes so good
but I must stop.” And ends up with, “what the hell, I'll eat the whole damn

It's a cover up of the base emotion of disappointment, rejection, upset,
remorse… and until one learns the basics of handling emotional eating, one stays
stuck in the cycle of dieting and binging.

An effective approach to conquer emotional eating involves asking important
questions "What is missing here? Why are you not getting the results you've been
promised?" It is clearly insane to keep dieting when the results are so poor.
It's more important to gain a grasp on how to stop emotional eating--eating
emotional stress than it is to read the scale. Besides focusing on the scale doesn't empower you to be a
better more enlightened person, whereas learning how to overcome emotional
eating empowers you in all aspects of your life. If you're a sales person,
you'll be a better sales person. If you're an assembly line worker, you'll be a
better assembly line worker; a mother, a better mother... Overall, you'll build
self worth and find that what you really want to eat is far more nutritious and
less in quantity than you ever before imagined possible.
