Are there any personal treatments that can be used to overcome binge eating disorder? I will eat well and exercise well for a couple months. I know I feel so much better when I take care of my body. Then something will trigger an emotion (perhaps due to stress ) and I'll start eating incessantly. This will continue for 3-4 weeks until food doesn't even taste as good. I feel sloth-like and don't want to do anything. I know it's not healthy for my body, and I'm tired of falling into this same pattern. It's been years of this back and forth between a healthy lifestyle and detrimental behavior, but I've done a lot of self-evaluation to try to figure out what the underlying cause could be. I am genuinely happy, but when I binge eat I do feel sad, which logically should be even more reason for me not to succumb to these behaviors. I have been to a counselor before, but I didn't feel as though it was helpful. I am thinking about going back because I don't want binge eating to be a part of my life any longer.
