Controlling Overeating and Food Addiction - Sept. 29
Overeating is a big problem for many of us. On the Tuesday night HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show, we're welcoming Caryl Ehrlich, founder of the Caryl Ehrlich Program. We're going to be discussing the reasons why people overeat and then learn how to successfully manage your food addiction. You can watch and participate (we'll be taking your questions) right from the HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show homepage. If you can't make the live show, watch it "on-demand."

I'm a 39-year-old, married woman with what I KNOW is a binge-eating disorder. The problem eating started as an adolescent when I decided the only thing I really had control over (subconsciously, at the time) was my diet and exercise. Anorexia came first. After a number of years, that developed into Bulimia. After college and a decade-or-so of obsessively healthy eating, the sporadic binging and purging took hold.
At this point in my life I am implementing different tools including psychotherapy, yoga and meditation, and food journaling. each of these things have helped and I continue to live my life: setting goals, growing as an individual, conquering my deeper fears and insecurities...... Yet, the "binge-purge monster" rears its ugly head at least two or three times a week. In addition, I have a few other intimate friends called Bipolar Disorder, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue.... These three guys seem harder to deal with on a day-to-day basis. I can feel when they're getting better or worse before any significant sign or symptom emerges. But, when the impulse to binge hits, I'm a step behind, and I'm totally out-of-control before I know what the heck happened.
