Binge Eating Help - Stop Sneak Eating!

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 246

Sneak eating more often than not turns into a binge. We don't want people to know what we are eating, so we are usually very "good" in front of others and when we are alone, we literally go mad, eating everything in sight just as quickly as we can! Which is quite ironic really because normally this means we don't even enjoy the food! What's all that about? Sneak eating is the undoing of any good intentions and simply reinforces that we are not good enough just as we are.

We shouldn't have to hide what we are eating. Food is just food. Sure some is unhealthy and not so good for us, but that doesn't mean we are hopeless human beings if we want to eat the unhealthy options. We have to eat every day, it should make us feel good, enable us to function well and be fun. The unhealthy items are a crucial part of getting satisfaction from food. This is because if you are really satisfied, you will stop sooner. They are normally richer, heavier or fattier which means you don't need a large amount of them to be satisfied. That is however if you are really tuned into your body and listening when it tells you to stop.

One of the guidelines of "Natural Eating", is "Eat with the intention of being in full view of others". This means that whether you are alone or not, when you eat, you eat the same way you would if others were present. You don't have to hide it or sneak it but you do have to eat it mindfully. Make a choice based on what your body wants at that time, not what you think you "should" eat. Sit down and eat without distractions. Really concentrate on the food, savour it, eat it slowly and enjoy it. Ask yourself, "Have I had enough?" And when you have, go and do something else until you are hungry again.

If you settle for something you don't really want just because others are present, I guarantee you will sneak the item you really wanted later. Then ultimately eat a lot more of it, than you would have if you ate it when you originally wanted it. This is because food you "settle" for fills you up physically but it doesn't satisfy you emotionally.

So, start eating what you really want, every time you eat. Then you can stop when you've had enough and not end up sneaking it and over indulging on it later. This takes trust and belief in yourself that you will stop. Your body will tell you, you just have to listen and then act appropriately. Remember you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want so why sneak?

I am a Natural Eating Consultant, wife and mother who has recovered from 6 years of depression, a side effect of which was bulimia. I used to binge on food uncontrollably and then exercise excessively to get rid of it. In my mid thirties I was introduced to Natural Eating which together with personal development, allowed me to learn to love and trust myself enough to make a full recovery. My weight settled at a healthy weight for me in 1998 and has remained at this level ever since. Previously, I'd had weight and food related issues for over 20 years. I have now written an e-book entitled "Empower yourself by eating what you want - how to lose weight naturally without dieting." For a FREE copy please click the following link
