Play • 11 min
What should you do if you recognise that a loved one is struggling with binge eating? Sometimes it can feel like a never-ending battle, sometimes it can be mentally exhausting to guide your loved one out of this mindset of dieting and bingeing.   In this episode, I will provide 3 tips on what to do if your loved one is struggling with binge eating. We will discuss in detail:  #1 Avoid recommending any diet plans – dieting can actually make binge eating worse  #2 Make them feel like you are a safe space – avoid any diet talk, weight talk, calling foods good or bad, and avoid talking about their binge eating issue if you feel they are not ready to talk about it. It can sometimes take a while to build trust but when you feel the time is right, approach your loved one in a non-judgemental way and ask if they find their binge eating an issue  #3 Avoid burnout. You do not have to take responsibility of your loved one’s binge eating. If you feel that you are struggling with binge eating you may sign post them to professional help such as a qualified dietitian or to their health provider  ⭐ How I can help you end binge eating: Binge Eating Freedom Course unlimited access!
