A Self Help Guide For Those Affected and Their Families
Guide for those affected - On the heels of emotional entanglements
Does this sound familiar: Although you have eaten enough and are actually NOT HUNGRY, you are magically drawn to your fridge or candy stash over and over? You simply CANNOT STOP until the potato chip bag is empty or until you have finished the entire chocolate bar? Especially if you want to treat yourself after a stressful day, or after a fight with colleagues, friends or your partner, food has an almost magical effect on your mood?

And even though your mind protests, you cannot resist the temptation? If you then tell yourself that everything will be better tomorrow, do your appetite and cravings make life difficult?
Or do you fight emerging cravings and your appetite by WILL POWER and DISCIPLINE? You make every effort to control your eating habits via the mind, without listening to your body’s feelings? And a LOOK AT THE SCALE decides your mood? If one, the other or both sides sound familiar to you, you must put SELF-DOUBT and GUILT aside. Those who suffer because they constantly EAT TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE OR THE WRONG THING are not lacking in willpower or perseverance.

I also spent years trapped in the VISCOUS CYCLE OF of OVER- OR UNDER-EATING. I suffered from a bad conscience and tried to hide my behavior from others. Phases of gluttony were followed by times of a strict diet and sports programs, which I was not able to stick with for very long, of course. The result was even more guilt, my undermined self-confidence and the helpless question of HOW THE HECK I WAS GOING TO STOP THIS. So I looked through libraries for relevant books on this topic, got an education as a nutritionist and dietician and got some psychological training as well.

Therein, it became clear to me that PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS often lie hidden behind problematic eating behaviors.

WE DO NOT EAT ONLY TO GET FULL, BUT ALSO TO FEEL BETTER. When we feel sad, lonely or depressed, chocolate can be a BALM FOR THE SOUL. And in order to vent our frustration and anger, we need something of which we can take a hearty bite. This is a very natural process in and of itself. After all, we experience the intake of food via the senses, thus setting the body's chemical processes into motion that lead to the release of happiness and well-being hormones.

The problem arises only when we can no longer choose how much we take in at what time freely and begin to suffer the effects of our behavior.

Conventional DIETS SIMPLY DO NOT HELP in this case. To get these problems permanently under control uncovering the MENTAL FACTORS is often helpful. If we see why the request to eat pops up and understand what we actually need instead, we can then develop alternative strategies that satisfy us in a more comprehensive manner. Even though physical hunger can be satisfied through food, emotional hunger cannot really be satisfied in this manner.

IN THIS GUIDE, you will learn a variety of MEASURES that you can put into place right away and that will teach you how to figure out your emotional entanglements and help you detect the actual needs behind your behavior. Consistency, taste and the way we eat will be as much under the microscope as the shape of your body.

Taking a sensitive LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON WITHIN WITHOUT ANY JUDGEMENT and ACCEPTANCE of the impressions, feelings and thoughts that come up will slowly but surely transform your behavior. So that you find your way back to a HARMONIOUS DIET, which gives you pleasure and joy, because you are free to choose what kinds of foods to eat in what quantities at what time again.

Positive changes in health and figure included:-)

My Story
I've always loved to eat myself. Sweets, chocolate, Nutella sandwiches and pasta were at the very top of my list. This meant that I was always carrying around a few extra pounds ever since I can remember. I never really found this to be tragic.

It was only when I ran into in a phase in which I always took in larger and larger amounts of food at about 19 that the fear of gaining more weight came up. I quickly learned to vomit after eating and was able to at least prevent the risk of excessive weight gain. As such, I could keep my behavior, which I was ashamed of, secret. I bought the large amounts of foods that I used up in different stores so that nobody would notice. Such phases alternated with phases of strict restrictions. I forbade myself all the things that I thought were unhealthy and bad, but then I would lose my joy of life and admit defeat by giving in to my food cravings before long.

For a long time, I did not understand what the real reasons for my behavior were and each attempt of breaking this cycle failed. I suffered a lot from the idea of having just too little discipline and willpower and knew no way out.

One day, I got the courage to confide in my then best friend and my former boyfriend. But unfortunately this cry for help backfired. While my boyfriend meet me with too much indifference, my girlfriend confronted me with an excess of panic so that I felt that neither of them really understood me and assured them that I had my behavior under control a short time later. I do not blame the two, no, on the contrary. I now understand that they must have felt overwhelmed by my message at that time and each handled the situation in his or her own way. I decided to keep my problem to myself in any case and to the search for solutions myself.

The study of numerous readings, a new, understanding boyfriend who supported me enormously through his sensitive and sympathetic manner, as well as its therapeutic knowledge, helped as well as the in-depth work on myself and working through my past the vicious cycle of overeating, vomiting, and chastising myself in order to leave it behind.

Step by step, I found my way back to controlled eating habits and started to enjoy food again. Even though the path was not easy and straightforward, it was worth it.

Today, I know the emotional entanglements, which led to my binge eating and I know what I can do to not let the cravings arise again. I have found the joy in eating again and enjoy every bite as often as possible. In addition, I have acquired a completely altered self-image, gotten back in touch with my gut feeling, my inner voice that guides me more and more in a direction that is conducive to all levels of my being.

You can also re-master the situation and regain the joy of eating.If you have already tried different methods to change your eating habits without any long-term success, you are probably frustrated and ready to give up. However, there is no reason to panic, because you will make your way out of this vicious circle!

In this guide, I will show you:
- How to view your problems as an opportunity for your own development.
- We will determine the psychological backgrounds behind your behavior and work through
them step by step.
- In addition, you will learn how to sensitively reconnect with yourself. You'll be surprised at how
miraculously your relationship with yourself and therefore your behavior will change as well.

I too was trapped in the cycle of overeating, waxing and waning for a long time. By dealing with the psychological relationships, I managed to accept myself and my behavior more and more and transform it in a sensitive manner. I suffered from a bad conscience less and less, opened up to the hidden causes of my behavior and achieved a new perspective through which my behavior changed on its own by carefully observing.

The cure also requires the willingness to really feel the pain that eating too much or too little causes - an admittedly not so simple step that requires a healthy dose of openness and courage. A sensitive way of dealing with ourselves, inspired by the model of nonviolent communication, helps us to make this move as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

You will manage to find your way back to an eating behavior, which provides you with fun and enjoyment - and does so without discipline and sacrifice. But from the inner motivation "to be good to yourself." An attractive and healthy body will be a very natural result and a beautiful side effect of this process ;)
