Those who suffer binge eating are often in a cycle of binge eating followed by restrictive eating the next day, another fad diet, fear of food and fear of weight gain. This exacerbates the so called binge and restrict eating cycle and leaves the individual feeling alone, anxious or even depressed.
Binge eating and overeating on food releases the feel-good hormones (dopamine and serotonin) which makes you feel like you are addicted to food. However, we get addicted to how food makes us feel. The more often we eat as a coping mechanism in difficult moment, the more it becomes a habits that is hard to break.
The good news is, by knowing exactly what drives our binge eating urges, we can immediately start creating new habits and break old habits that keep us feeling obsessed with food.
