Key Points:

  • Hoarding, bingeing, and other related behaviors are the most common experiences from childhood dieting/restriction.
  • I am sorry on behalf of all health and medical professionals for the oppression.
  • You don’t have to choose health OR healing. Working on healing your relationship with food will help you promote health long term.
  • Healing is not passive or giving up or weakness. Healing is an active process never passive.
  • Fat on the body didn’t CAUSE the problems. Eating sugar didn’t CAUSE the problems. Being shamed in your body and not teaching you how to tolerate feelings caused the problems.
  • Healing from Binge Eating Disorder (BED) takes on average 7 to 14 years.
  • Restricting nutrients or calories may show favorable outcomes in short term yet worse in the long term especially if affected by BED.
  • Keep the data! You need proof that you’re bingeing less as time goes on.
  • Diabetes is a chronic progressive disease. It is always changing and slowly getting worse even if you do everything you can.
