10 Tips for Breaking a Binge Eating Habit

1. Honor and respect the uniqueness of your body and how it was meant to look.

2. Make the conscious choice to listen to your body so you eat when you’re hungry, and become more aware of when you’re full.

3. Give yourself permission to enjoy what you eat. Take your time to taste and appreciate it. Your brain can only register fullness if it is “present” for the experience of eating.

4. Stop dieting! Focus instead on portion size and eating balanced meals and snacks.

5. Don't skip meals. They set you up for bingeing at the end of the day.

6. Think about food as a positive source of energy and sustenance, rather than a source of comfort, reward, or a weapon.

7. Stop labeling foods as “good” or “bad.” That adds an unnecessary emotional component to eating and sets you up to diet.

8. Decide how much power you’re going to give to the number on the scale, and the extent to which you will allow it to define your worth.

9. Cultivate a practice of gratitude for all of the amazing things your body does for you everyday!

10. Choose to spend less energy thinking and worrying about food, calories, and the shape of your stomach. Instead, re-channel that energy into hobbies, loving relationships, personal and professional growth, paying it forward, and making a meaningful difference in the world.
