As with any "addictive behaviors" we use them to distract ourselves from our feelings. If you find that you can't stop eating when you want to, eat way more at a sitting than you find reasonable, you might be binge eating or compulsive eating. Many who struggle with this feel out of control, want to stop, can't stop and then feel awful and guilty when it's all over. Then the internal critic kicks in and "beats you up for it" and it starts over again. There is a way out. Let me help you get out of the cycle of compulsive eating.
