How to Cope with Binge Eating During the Holidays

Intuitive eating meditation on food neutrality

The #1 question I get asked is this:

“I’M REALLY GOOD ALL DAY LONG AND THEN I JUST GET STUPID AT NIGHT. I’M EATING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT.”

My client Mel could not stop binge eating at night, she has tried everything and even found herself sleep walking to the kitchen and binge eating on autopilot. We brainstormed her symptoms together and we discovered that she was using restrictive eating to make up for binge eating. She was highly stressed and just could not seem to keep herself out of the pantry when the rest of her household went to be at night.

Mel and I worked on getting her body back into harmony and her urges out of the way by working on a meal plan that would give her the energy to balance her busy life and career. We also worked on building her toolkit to manage her emotions and stress levels so that she was able to nourish herself without food, especially late at night when everyone else went to bed.

Here are her biggest a-ha’s during her mentoring journey with me.

1. NEVER GO HUNGRY:
Make sure you never allow your body to think that there is a possibility of starving.
Before my health journey, I would live off cigarettes and coffee during the day and in the evening binge on a full chicken and 2 potatoes followed with a bottle of wine!! Trust me this is a recipe for disaster, make sure you have regular meals and snacks handy during the day!!

2. BEWARE OF YOUR EMOTIONS:
We have been so busy processing life during the day that we do not have time to process emotions.
In the evening our bodies want to decompress!!
If you don’t give yourself time to decompress when you get home, you will comfort in that bag of chips quicker than your logical brain can tell you to stop.

3. MANAGE YOUR STRESS LEVELS:
Cortisol (our stress hormone) is released under long periods of stress in the body.
High cortisol levels lead to cravings especially for high sugar, quick energy foods!!
managing your stress levels during the day will lower cortisol which mean you are less
likely to day dream about pastries all day, making it hard to resist sweet foods late at night.

4. KEEP HYDRATED.
Dehydration can make it difficult for your body to use her natural
energy stores in your muscles and fat cells. As a result your body will need energy fast meaning your cravings for sugary foods and carbohydrates will be undeniable.

5. ASK YOURSELF “WHY AM I EATING?
If you have just eaten and you know you are full but your pantry is
calling you like an answered text message from your boyfriend, ask yourself “What am I really hungry for?” Chances are, you need to relax after a long day, it might be boredom or loneliness. Figure out what’s driving you to the pantry and find ways to reward your body with what she really needs.
