I am not sure where to post this, but because what I struggle with is largely emotional in origin, I thought I'd post it here. I'm overweight and suffering from high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am a binge eater and, in the past, was bulimic.
Recently, I was told to lose weight and prescribed a low-fat, low-sodium diet by my doctor. I'm 60 lbs overweight per my doctor, and I am on bp medication. I really feel like I need to address the binge eating behavior and really look at what is going on emotionally before I think about trying to actively lose weight. I feel like trying to go on a diet would trigger some of the binging behaviors.
Has anyone struggled with these things? I am interested in the HAES approach, and wonder if that would be helpful given my background with restriction, binging, and purging. I appreciate any wisdom/thoughts. Thank you.
