    What You Can Do If You Have Both Binge Eating And Depression

    What You Can Do If You Have Both Binge Eating And Depression

    Depression impacts a lot of people with binge eating disorder. Research studies have determined that out of 100 people with B. E. D., between 32 and 40 of them have co-occurring major depression. Approximately 1 in 5 people with major depressive disorder also suffers from binge eating symptoms. All of this is to say that it's not at all rare to be managing B. E. D. along with another condition.

    That is why in today's episode, Georgie shares not only the links between, the struggles and stigmas, and the most effective treatments to overcome these health conditions. Bear in mind that these are complex ailments and managing them nearly always requires a synthesis of approaches.

    Treatments encompass psychological lifestyle, pharmacological, and social supports. Some of them are personal, some of them require a professional, some are free, and some cost money or time. Some may come easily to you, while others may require considerable bravery or effort.

    The message we want to leave you with today is one of hope. You don't have to choose between treating your depression or treating your binge eating. The same road applies to healing both. If you have a question you'd like for us to answer, need some help or support, or just aren't sure where to turn, reach out to us at georgiefear@gmail.com or by using the chat function at confidenteaters.com and we will do our best to point you in the right direction.

She wants to know how to handle a scarcity mindset, when she finds herself in different environments, or when food is over-available.

    If you struggle with any of these challenges, then you are not going to want to miss this episode! We will share how to incrementally build your confidence when it comes to using emotional regulation tools more consistently. Let's help Luisa!

    Research on Food Addiction and BED

    Research on Food Addiction and BED

    Have you ever wondered if you are addicted to food? Can someone be addicted to food like they can be to alcohol and other substances? Many of our clients feel out of control around certain foods, and may feel as though they are food addicted, which is why we thought this would be an important topic to cover together.
    Each month, the coaches at confident eaters explore topics related to challenges we see our clients facing so that we can better support them in our work together. In today's podcast episode, you are going to hear Georgie, Maryclaire, and Christina talk about some research surrounding the idea of Food addiction and differing views on its validity.
    In this conversation, the Confident Eaters team explores various aspects of food addiction and binge eating disorder. You will hear us discuss differences among clients, variations in eating behaviors, and the impact of relationships on food-related behaviors. We also delve into gender differences in binge eating disorder and personality traits associated with eating disorders. We will highlight the complexities of these concerns and the challenges faced by individuals seeking treatment, including the role of hyper-palatable foods, and the importance of promoting self-efficacy and flexibility in recovery efforts.

    How to do something new (Because we know it’s hard to try unfamiliar things)

    How to do something new (Because we know it’s hard to try unfamiliar things)

    We know behavior change means changing our behaviors, which means that we have to give up on some things that may feel like comfortable, familiar routines. If you've attempted to change a longstanding behavior in the past, then you know it is a lot easier said than done.

    You may have found that despite repeated efforts to change your behaviors, you keep finding yourself back at the same place doing the same old things. You're not alone. Smart, successful, capable people often find this is the case when it comes to food. They admit they're doing the same old things and they aren't working. Today, we will talk about how to get yourself over that threshold to do something new and different.

    What hidden force is it that keeps us stuck? Join Georgie and Christina as we talk about a few potential causes and how you can get yourself unglued to finally leave behind the patterns that aren't working for you and try that new, different way.

    If you want to learn how to do something new and unfamiliar, then check out this week's episode.

    Dusting off the shame & knowing your worth

    Dusting off the shame & knowing your worth

    This week, we are excited to share a Client interview from our 1:1 coaching program. Join Coach Christina and her former client, Maddie, as they discuss her journey of overcoming the binge and restrict cycle and developing food freedom.
    We all have different challenges, backgrounds, habits, and lifestyles. Maddie shares her story as someone who loves to challenge herself physically, eat healthful meals, and support herself emotionally and spiritually.
    But she was struggling! She was going through a lot of change and went back to some old habits of binge eating. "I thought I was past all of this!", she thought, and like so many other people, she hid in shame, trying to figure out on her own for a while. 
    Maddie was once in your shoes, looking for a solution to her binge eating and found this podcast. In listening some more, she realized that she could use the support of a coach to overcome her challenges. 
    We covered a lot of topics, including:
    Why Maddie reached out in the first place and what made the Confident Eating approach different then things she had tried in the past.What Maddie's biggest challenges were before our work together and the obstacles she has overcome since. What it means to do the inner work of self discovery and dusting off the shame to overcome long held habits and beliefs around food and body image. Thanks to Maddie for being our guest on this week's episode and sharing her valuable experience!

Learning things I have never known

Georgie and Mary Claire teach skills, share real life sessions with clients that educate and guide you on your personal healing journal with food. It’s insightful and life changing. A must listen if you have a unhealthy relationship with food, even if you have struggled for years and tried everything, you haven’t tried this.

Amazing and healing podcast

I’ve struggled with binge eating my entire life, although I wasn’t able to give it a name for a long time. Most medical providers, and even mental health providers, are ill equipped to diagnose this and even less so to treat. I started listening to these podcasts in 2022, and am working my way through them from older to newer episodes. I am staggered and beyond grateful for the evidence-based knowledge, experience, and wisdom I’ve found here. I am slowly changing my paradigm from constant dieting and food restriction to being aware of my emotional health and doing things to boost my overall physical and mental health. Eating well and exercising are things I’ve begun to embrace because they make me better and happier, not because they correlate with a number on the scale. It’s not a quick fix, and by no means am I “cured” of binge eating. But I am amazed that in the two months I’ve been listening and trying to incorporate the podcast ideas into my life, how much my life has changed for the better. I can’t thank Georgie and Mary Claire enough for this podcast series. It is literally life changing.

All all access?

So I guess all the episodes are “all access now”? Such a shame for those of us who can’t afford.
