Tips to Overcome Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating

Be honest and true to yourself and break free of your food torture

Bulimics and binge eaters mistake tiredness for hunger and are totally disconnected to the actual emotional reasons which trigger a binge. This means you are triggered to eat when you become tired. However, it’s not just tiredness that can lead to a binge. Any one of a myriad of emotions can lead to unconscious eating such as stress, boredom, sadness, feeling fed up, lonely, insecure, worried, scared and so on. Even happiness can trigger a binge.

The good news is you can cease the cycle of this destructive behaviour and learn to interpret the true meaning behind your feelings. You’ll be able to handle the stress you feel much more effectively. Here’s how.

First tip to overcome bulimia nervosa and binge eating

1, Ask yourself these questions over and over again each day.

What do I need to learn to move on, to make my life better?  What must I do to improve things?

By repeating these questions you will programme your brain to consistently look for the answers and slowly break out of your destructive eating cycle rather than feeling low.

You will be focusing on the positive, on solutions to break out of your destructive eating merry-go-round rather than feeling repeatedly bad and guilty and then drugging yourself with food in an attempt to avoid your pain.

2. I’ll have it later

This is an extremely helpful phrase to use when fighting those urges. Bulimics and binge eaters commonly misunderstand the nature of urges. A very important thing to know is that you will only have to deal with an urge for two to three minutes. They don’t last longer than that. Just knowing this fact can give you an immense amount of freedom because even though the urges seem so powerful and last forever, you spend most of the day – hundreds of minutes – free from any urgency of thinking whatsoever.

This simple phrase “I’ll have it later”, will help you drown out those internal voices telling you to binge. It is far easier for your mind to listen to a “yes” rather than a “no” and, by repeating this phrase when an urge to eat overwhelms you, your mind just thinks, “okay, later then”.

Essentially, by saying this phrase, you are reprogramming your mind to change thinking patterns, behaviours and habits into much more useful, empowering effective ones, allowing you to be lean, healthy and happy now.

This is a technique used in Neurolinguistic Programming. The NLP and hypnotherapeutic approach to health and healing is like finding an owners manual for your mind and is highly effective in helping you to stop bulimia and binge eating forever.
