Coping with Compulsive Eating

Coping with Compulsive Eating

Author: Ruth Searle Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/06/2007

Many of enjoy collapsing in front of the TV with a doughnut at the end of a long day, or grabbing a MacDonalds after an exhausting shopping trip, but just when does comfort eating become dangerous? Eating disorders affect an astounding 1.15 million in the UK, according to the Eating Disorders Association, and compulsive eating is the most likely eating disorder to develop. Other research indicates that compulsive eating affects up to 30 per cent of the population in the UK and USA. Yet, diets don't work in 98 per cent of cases. We all know that overeating doesn't just make you overweight - there are health dangers such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and some cancers, as well as fatigue and nausea. There may be a wide range of psychological and environmental reasons why people turn to food. The good news is that this behaviour can be tackled with success. This book explores the zone we enter when comfort eating prevents us living the life we want to live, or from becoming the people we want to be, and advises on how to break the eating addiction and get back on with real life.
