    #21 - I Struggle with Binge Eating but I Need to Lose Weight For my Health Condition to Improve!

    #21 - I Struggle with Binge Eating but I Need to Lose Weight For my Health Condition to Improve!

    Binge eating recovery requires you to let go of restrictions and dieting is a massive form of restriction. So what do you do if you need to lose weight but you're stuck being torn between binge eating recovery and losing weight for your health? Let's get stuck in to this episode of binge dietitian podcast! 

    The 3 Tips I would recommend to reduce binge eating but also improve your health: 

    #1 Try to incorporate regular meals and snacks into your diet + honour your hunger. Binge eating is a signal from our body that there are unmet needs that need to be met - often times, we binge eat because we are so deprived psychologically by restricting the foods we love or even whole food groups such as sugar or carbs - or we are depriving ourselves physically so we become so hungry we have an intense urge to binge! So including regular meals and snacks - your breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, and dinner would calm your hunger pangs down and include foods you enjoy throughout the day to reduce the craving for them.  

    #2 Incorporate healthy habits to improve your health markers. Studies show that if you incorporate healthy habits such as increasing, fruit and veg intake, daily physical activity, consuming alcohol moderately, and not smoking, you can be metabolically healthy despite your weight. 

    #3 If you choose to lose weight still, remember that you will have to tackle binge eating first in most cases before chasing weight loss. Struggling with binge eating and restricting is a never-ending battle but once you escape the cycle of bingeing and restricting, you will be in a much more sustainable, healthy relationship with food to reach your goals of weight loss.

    #20 - 'I'm Eating the Foods I Crave But I'm Still Bingeing' - What to Do

    #20 - 'I'm Eating the Foods I Crave But I'm Still Bingeing' - What to Do

    One of the key points to reduce your binge episodes is to start to give yourself permission to eat the foods you crave - these could be your trigger foods, binge foods, or the foods you enjoy but you have been restricting them. But what if you are having them already but you still find yourself binge eating? This is likely because there is still restriction lurking in the background

    Here are the 3 tips I would want you to review if you're having the foods you crave but you're still bingeing

    1. Are you still experiencing physical restriction? Are you skipping meals intentionally? Are you eating every 3-4 hours? This could look like having breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, and your dinner consistently - yes even if you binge try to get back on track with regular eating!

    2. Are you weighing yourself more than once a week? Weighing ourselves more than once a week or actually at all, can make us lose sight of what true binge eating recovery progress looks like.

    3. Are you still setting diet rules? Do you tell yourself that you should avoid bad foods and eat only good foods especially after a binge? Do you set promises or strict goals that you’ll work harder to follow your strict diet? Diet rules contributes to a restriction mentality which can later on down the line make us have an increased craving to binge.

    #19 - Snack Ideas If You Struggle with Binge Eating to Stay Full AND Satisfied Throughout the Day

    In this episode I will discuss some tips on what to eat to reduce your binges! Snacks are vital to reduce your binge episodes because they keep you full and satisfied throughout the day. 

    The 3 tips to Implement When Including Snacks to Your Day:

    1.  Make sure they are snacks you enjoy to ensure your snacks are satisfying for your psychological cravings to help reduce binge urges

    2. If you are already having snacks you enjoy, try to go for a snack that contains fibre, fats, protein, and carbs to ensure they are filling to prevent physical cravings for a binge

    3. Is to not limit yourself to snacks. Make sure you main meals – breakfast lunch and dinner as well are enjoyable first then make sure they are balanced by containing a fibre source, and protein, fats, and carb source
