    Hey all

    I am really struggling at the moment with complusive overeating and I don't know what to do about it. I have tried speaking to my rather dismissive GP and had no success. Just the usual we all do that at times and it really doesn't help the problem. I don't know why I do it and I am often not aware that I am doing at times. I have tried to stop a few times on my by not restricting and avoiding the foods that cause me issues but nothing seems to work.

    I have also spoken to the cmht and although my psych is aware she's not that interested (again probably due to talks with GP)

    What can I do to stop this from happening?

    I know struggling with food is hard. Mine in the past was the anorexia and bulimia. I found an app called Recovery Record - designed for those struggling with an eating disorder of all kinds. Maybe try it? I downloaded it again yesterday. Ran across a problem and now need to keep track again. Know I'm here if you want to talk. Hugs

    I don't think that it can be done with willpower. Which is why most people need some kind of help--specialized or not (as in treatment). I think...

    I agree with misterbgone, that's why I am going to speak to my psych in a couple of couple of months about and also my gp and be firm with them as i am struggling to beat this alone, i need some professional help

    Try to find a substitute for the eating. Get yourself some light weights and when you get the urge do some exercises instead. You would be surprised how good it will make you feel.

    I have tried however when I am completely zoned out I have no control of what I am doing its like i am in different world and not in reality or like I am seeing my self on the television/through a glass window and I am not there.

    Still struggling with the binge eating, so next time I see Dr Kate, I am gonna say it's self-injury and not just an emotional eating problem and not settle for the "mild treatments" such as talking therapy and cognitive behavioural nonsense.
