Lifestyle Changes That May Help Stop Binge Eating

November 9, 2021 09:35:47

Eating disorders such as anorexia and binge eating are serious illnesses characterized by damaging and complex relationships with body image, exercise, food and eating. Individuals suffering from binge eating disorder usually experience recurrent episodes, which involve the consumption of huge amounts of food, feeling they have lost control and experiencing feelings of shame or guilt after the binge. This disorder can cause obesity if it remains untreated, which in turn leads to other severe health issues, including gallbladder disease and type 2 diabetes.

Binge eating disorder is usually managed with medication, nutritional counseling and psychotherapy. In addition to this, lifestyle changes can also be used to manage the disorder. It should be noted that these changes are not to be used as substitutes for professional help.

Some of the lifestyle changes include the following:

Eating fiber

Most whole grains, vegetables and fruits are rich in fiber, which cuts down on cravings and keeps you full for longer. Eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains and unprocessed foods also assist in the moderation of an individual’s compulsive eating. This is in addition to decreasing the risks of heart disease and diabetes as well as controlling blood sugar and cholesterol. Examples of fiber-heavy foods include chickpeas, carrots, Brussel sprouts, blueberries, bananas and avocados.

Keep hydrated

Water may help with weight loss as well as boost an individual’s metabolism. In addition to this, remaining hydrated can help decrease overeating and keep in check unwanted cravings.

Stop dieting with restrictions

Placing unmanageable restrictions on one’s food intake while dieting may prompt your body to respond with overeating. Extreme diets aren’t beneficial in the long term, which is why you should avoid diets that promise fast loss of weight, have limited food choices, require no exercise and do away with whole food groups such as carbohydrates.

Instead, make healthier choices when it comes to what you eat. This will help you keep your eating in check while also allowing you to manage your cravings.

Avoid skipping meals

Skipping a meal only aggravates binge eating, as it leaves you wanting to consume more food later. It is recommended that an individual who binges include a regular eating pattern into their routine because this may decrease the risk of binge eating later on.

Experts recommend that individuals eat three square meals about three to four hours apart, with snacks in between. Additionally, it is recommended that you get professional help to stop overeating and begin your recovery from binge eating disorder. In the foreseeable future, the professional help could take the form of novel medicines developed by entities such as Tryp Therapeutics Inc. (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF) to deliver superior clinical outcomes.
