    Binge eating advice

    Hi everyone,
    I'm just coming to terms with the fact that I might have a binge eating disorder.I've looked up a lot of ways to help 'discipline yourself' with food, etc., but none of it's helped. I've struggled the past year with food and have experienced many of the symptoms of the disorder, so I think I might have it.
    I would love to get help if it's possible, but I would also love to hear from you all and any tips/advice you have to give.
    Thanks -Margaret

    Hi Margaret,

    I think that talking with your doctor about your relationship with food, what you have already tried, and what options are available to you is a great first place to start. He/She may also refer you to another doctor or a therapist who has more experience working with people with binge eating disorder.

    The WebMD Binge Eating Disorder health center is filled with information that you might find helpful and is another good place to start: http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/eating-disorders/binge-eating-disorder/default.htm It includes articles on healthy habits to implement in your life, different treatment options that may be available to you, and more answers to some of the questions you may have.

    Please let us know how you are doing and any specific questions that you may have
