Blame. Binge. Shame. Repeat - The self critic behind the binge eater
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode I continue to explain what makes it difficult to stop eating. Behind many binge urges there is often a self critic. Here, I'll start to help you recognise, and address yours.

In today's episode:

  • 10  steps, or ways, to start thinking about your eating, and how to manage it, differently.
  • Understand more about the compulsion to eat, and what's behind it.
  • Recognise the  self-critic behind your eating.
  • Explore ways to address the urge to eat.
  • Learn how to begin to develop self-confidence

From a place of genuine self-respect, it is possible to choose to stop eating, naturally.  Here,  I go into more detail about self-criticism and self-confidence.
