What I Eat After a BINGE

This week's video is all about overeating (and the distinction between 'normal' hunger/overeating and bingeing). And it is a reminder to you that, yes, overeating happens. It is normal. But there is no need to restrict the following meal or day, as this will only perpetuate the cycle.  

During my eating disorder, I definitely overate. A lot. This happened as a result of restriction, and it was my body's natural response. Ultimately, it was only by eating well the next day and not (freaking out and) restricting that I overcame this frightening phenomenon. 

Nowadays, I no longer overeat the the same extent. However, even in a recovered body and even among individuals who have never even had an eating disorder... overeating happens sometimes! It happens to everyone from time to time, and it is perfectly okay! Accept that it happened and then move on!
