Overcoming Stress Eating

Stress EatingStress eating is a common form of eating disorder and many of its sufferers aren’t even aware that the stress in their lives is affecting the way they are eating.

You received some bad news and it upset you so much that you had to ruin your healthy eating plan and reach for a box of chocolates, and some ice cream.

Many films have displayed a saddened individual comforting themselves with a tub of ice cream and other treats, watching television while mindlessly bringing the food to their mouths.

Who has not found themselves attempting to nurture some kind of stress caused by fear or pain through food?

For those suffering from eating when stressed, this disorder may be difficult to determine in a world that makes the coming together of food and stress seem very normal.

How can you tell if your eating habits are identical to those who indulge in eating when stressed? Signs Of Addiction

Damages of Stress Eating

Although sufferers of eating when stressed may not think their disorder is as serious as other eating disorders, it can have the same devastating results:
  • Obesity and related health issues.
  • Malnutrition.
  • Fatigue.
  • Poor complexion, brittle hair and nails.
  • Increased emotional instability.

Overcoming Stress Eating

Fortunately, eating when stressed can be conquered just the same as any other eating disorder.

Yes I suffered from eating when I am stressed, I share the journey with you in by book Overcoming Life’s Challenges and how I overcame eating out of stress.

Below are some tips to point you in the right direction to find help to solve your problem eating:

  • Learn your eating habits by keeping track of what you eat and when you eat it.
  • Sip tea to relax and satisfy your taste buds.
  • Contact your local Over eaters Anonymous, the group is based around compulsive eating, but can offer tremendous support to individuals who suffer with eating when they are stressed.
  • Talk to a loved one when you are feeling stressed.
  • Talk to your physician about your health and making better eating choices.

Discovering healthy ways to handle your stress will help you get a hold of your addiction and understand why you eat when you are stressed and once you can put your finger on the problem you can learn to control it.

Food Works As A Tension Reliever

Both eating and thinking about eating work as distractions from uncomfortable feelings. Being food focused takes the edge off any feeling that a person would rather not feel or tolerate such as stress, boredom, anger or loneliness, hopeless, and the list goes on.
 

Eating may make you feel better in the short term, but these feelings don’t last for very long.

Yes, I use to eat when I was stressed, now I am aware of the situation and how to handle it, believe me it has taken me along time to find out what caused it, you can read all about how I overcame this addiction as with many others that I had in my book Overcoming Life’s Challenges and how I overcame just another addiction.

Overcoming Stress Eating Quote By Lee Iacocca

In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.

Eating Disorder And The Media

Eating Disorder And The Media

Eating Disorder And The Media

video cameraNo one can deny the relationship between eating disorder and the media.

For centuries, women in particular have been extremely fashion focused and used other women in fashion magazines and film to determine how they ought to look.

From the era that praised women on the more voluminous side through paintings to the many eras of girdle wearing and tight fitting corsets, whatever was said to be most flattering was the way to be.

Somehow, thin seemed to always be in and that motto lived on into present, especially in the media.

Eating disorders have been traced back as early as the mid-1600s; however, they were taken lightly by the medical world and received little spotlight until much later.

As the first supermodels emerged in fashion magazines -all extremely thin – more secret eating disorders were developing.

It wasn’t until the 1970s that books would begin to be written on this troubled eating and public figures would begin to bring their eating disorders to the light.

Eating disorders don’t just affect adolescent girls, “twenty somethings”, and the average individual.

Eating Disorder And The Media

Yes, eating disorders affect a high percentage of average youths but they do not discriminate.

Adolescents are at risk of developing eating disorders for a multiple reasons.

They attend schools where, sadly, kids are cruel and turn everyday into a fashion show and popularity contest.

They may be teased about their weight and a desire to fit in and feel wanted leaves them desperate and depressed.

The over exposure of today’s youth to magazines, music videos, and television shows adorned with seemingly perfect and fit celebrities contributes to their feelings of not being thin enough and therefore unattractive.

If you take a look on the other side, there is a great degree of irony.

Many of the celebrities those suffering with eating disorders are trying to emulate have body image and self esteem issues of their own.

The world of celebrity is the equivalent of the high school that tears apart the self conscience teenager.

Celebrities feel the need to look good at all times; they are constantly photographed, urged to look their best -which usually means thinnest- for music video, film and photo shoots, as well as events.

They are pressured to look better than the next up and coming starlet and other celebrities aren’t just taunting beauties in magazines to them, they are their actual peers!

Imagine the pressure of that.

A good fact to keep in mind is that these celebrities are often airbrushed and even body doubled, and many struggle with eating disorders themselves.

A good example of this was when Pretty Woman was released with Julia Roberts, the picture that was used to advertise the movie of her and Richard Gere was not even her body, they used a double.

When I look at magazines now and they talk about woman in their 40’s and 50’s and what a great body they have, I now don’t believe them as most of the time they are airbrushed, another example is Rachel Hunter, in this particular magazine she was in a bikini and looked stunning, no tattoos (she has got a tattoo on her stomach, but magically it wasn’t there any more) and she has been complaining about her cellulite and magically that had disappeared to.

So yes eating disorder and the media have a lot to play in the way we look at ourselves.

One of the most famed celebrity eating disorder cases was Karen Carpenter, who died as a result of her Anorexia in the early 1980s. Karen Carpenter Story

Many other celebrities struggled with or received treatment for their eating disorders in later years.

Today, we see pictures of celebrities and read the stories questioning whether or not they have an eating disorder because they are so thin, and many will go public and admit that they do and more have discussed their desire to help others so they don’t glorify their pictures and aim to look like them as it requires unhealthy measures.

With both the average individual and the seemingly perfect starlet being at the mercy of eating disorders, what or whom is to blame for eating disorders? Myself I mostly blame eating disorder and the media.

While the connection between eating disorder and the media is undeniable, the true culprit is the lack of education, self awareness and self esteem within our society.

Taking preventive measures, such as talking to adolescent daughters about their own bodies, eating disorders and the damages of them, how character does count, and how unrealistic the bodies of women on the majority of media material are, will help create strong individuals who in turn are less likely to be affected and feel a need to conform.

As with myself, I was bulimic for 25 years, I didn’t realize what I was doing to myself and my family and friends never knew, it just wasn’t talked about like it is now, in my book Overcoming Life’s Challenges I take you on the journey of being a bulimic and having a problem with my weight to how I overcame this illness.

I must point out because I have been there, PLEASE get help otherwise it will destroy your life, and life is just too precious.

Eating Disorder And The Media Quote By Amy Baker

When it comes to adolescent eating disorders, it is usually the parents’ responsibility to seek help. The girl with the eating disorder is often the last to know she is ill.

Dental Erosion And Eating Disorders

Dental Erosion And Eating Disorders

Preventing Dental Erosion And Eating Disorders

How closely related are dental erosion and eating disorders?

dentureOne of the first signs of an eating disorder and often a give-away of a sufferer is poor oral hygiene.

Not the typical minor dental issues that may result from skipping out on a few brushings, but on the contrary, the results of excessive brushing and stomach acids making contact with the teeth, as in the case of Bulimia Nervosa eating disorders.

Dental hygienists often get a first glimpse into the declining health of those struggling with eating disorders whether the patient admits to their eating disorder upon confrontation with dental evidence or in a preliminary form prior to their appointment (which is rare, unless the patient is already seeking treatment).

Dental erosion is the most common of dental effects that result from eating disorders.

Erosion occurs when the teeth have been continually exposed to erosive acids and the enamel on the inward side of the teeth becomes worn away.

Progressive dental erosion leads to more troubles such as upper teeth becoming smaller, front teeth becoming shorter and a thinning out of the teeth that causes easy breakage.

Nerves of teeth become exposed, causing sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, as well as sweet products and eating becomes a painful experience.

Vomiting and the stomach acids released into the mouth in the process is often the cause of dental erosion in eating disorders; but acids found in acidic fruits and juices, as wells soft drinks and fermented foods can do erosive damage as well.

Therefore, eating disorders that do not involve purging can result in dental erosion also.

Damages of Dental Erosion and Eating Disorders

Eating disorders can cause many more oral issues, aside from erosion of tooth enamel. Here are a few of the problems that can result:

  • A decrease in saliva secretion, causing dry mouth.
  • Numerous cavities.
  • Gum infections.
  • Raised fillings, appearing higher than the teeth as a result of enamel wearing away.
  • Sore throats.
  • Burning tongue.
  • Altered bite, causing the bottom teeth to hit the roof of the mouth.
  • Swollen Parotid gland as a result of continual self induced vomiting (the parotid is the largest salivary gland and causes “puffy cheeks”; it can be damaged beyond repair, leaving a change in facial structure).
  • Loss of teeth

Dealing with Dental Erosion and Eating Disorders

Many of the oral problems presented by problem eating are reversible and preventable.

The best way to resolve dental destruction is to resolve the eating disorder that has caused them.

However, there are damages that cannot be reversed, and some may require expensive prosthetic and oral surgeries.

Here are some tips to help you deal with dental erosion and your eating disorder:

  • Do not avoid visiting your dentist; many sufferers of eating disorders try to escape routine check-ups because they are aware of the Dental hygienist’s knowledge of eating disorders and their part in dental erosion. Your dentist is not there to judge you, though they may suggest treatment for your eating disorder, they will help you to better care for your teeth, determine any necessary dental procedures and take preventive measures.
  • Do not brush your teeth after vomiting, this scrubs acidic solution into teeth and promotes dental erosion of tooth enamel.
  • Do rinse your mouth out with baking soda and water to raise the pH level within your mouth and neutralize the acid.
  • Over-the-counter fluoride tablets and mouthwashes also protect teeth enamel from damaging acids and can help resolve dry mouth.
  • Do speak with your physician about treating your eating disorder, as well as a nutritionist and behavioral counselor

Learning healthy eating habits and proper oral hygiene is the best way to bring an end to both dental erosion and eating disorders.

As a Bulimic for 25 years my teeth are starting to suffer, when I clean my teeth my gums bleed, this is because of the erosion. My gums have receded back which is a problem for me, as I mentioned in my book Overcoming Life’s Challenges I had my front teeth knocked out at a party, as my gums are receding and I have got caps on my teeth you can see the top of the tooth. Which means I have to go and get them recapped to take up that space. My teeth are very sensitive to hot and cold, this is because of all the purging over the years and the effects of the acid erosion.

You only get one set of teeth, I am 56 now and the years of bulimia is now taking its toll.

Do you seriously want to go through all of this, have all your teeth taken out and end up with false teeth.

Dental Erosion And Eating Disorders Quote By Chuck Palahniuk

I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some bline, random disaster, or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He’s taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of death from being a total surprise.

10 Tips To Healthy Eating

10 Tips To Healthy Eating

10 Tips To Healthy Eating

woman eating an appleThese 10 tips to healthy eating will get you on the right path, and you’ll be making healthier eating choices by your next meal.

If asked about your eating habits, would you call yourself a healthy eater?

Would you say you make an effort to make healthy eating choices or are you completely in the dark on the topic?

Don’t Try to Eat Your Way through Tragedy

In the face of tragedy – major or minor- many people find themselves seeking comfort in their favorite foods.

Those foods aren’t often vegetables.

Emotional eating leads to weight gain and other health risks, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Deal with the issues that are affecting you, as opposed to hiding behind a tub of ice cream.

Your problem will worsen and so will your health if you continue to ignore it.

Eat only when your body requests that you do so.

Don’t Skip Meals

Another cause of overeating is skipping out on meals.

This throws your body off and causes it to go into a sort of overly-hungry frenzy.

You will end up making up for the missed meal by eating more at the next.

This is one of the most important of the 10 tips to healthy eating.

Have Water

Drink water half an hour before a meal meal.

It is an essential part of your daily diet, and drinking it half an hour before meals will help you to achieve fullness faster and avoid overeating.

Have a Snack Attack

Sometimes you’ll feel hungry, but it isn’t quite time for your next meal.

Tame your grumbling tummy with healthy snacks like trail mix, granola and yogurt, or cheese sticks.

Practice Good Portion Control

Do you know how much of each food you should be eating at each meal?

You can refer to the Food Guide Pyramid for details on food portioning, but generally, cutting the amounts of what you would normally put on your plate in half and asking the waiter to do the same when you are dining out will suffice and prevent overeating.

Stock Up on Healthy Stuff

Even with most restaurants now offering healthier menu options, your own kitchen is the best spot to dine.

Stock up on healthy food items by making simple switches like white bread to wheat bread, white rice to brown, and whole grain pastas and cereals.

Keeping beans, canned fish, and dark chocolate and 100 calorie pre-portioned packages for the sweet tooth around are a good idea.

Read Food Labels

Everyone who consumes food ought to become an avid reader of food labels.

It is of great importance to your health.

Become familiar with the different names for food ingredients and know which ones to avoid.

Additionally, read between the lines when it comes to labels.

“Free”, as in fat or calorie or sugar free, does not necessarily mean the product has no trace of the ingredient.

It may contain a smaller amount.

“Made with” does not mean the product contains large amounts of the healthy ingredient being advertised.

Fruit drinks are not the same as 100% fruit drinks; always check for the 100% mark on the side of the carton.

Be sure to compare the serving size to the noted calories per serving.

Although food labels can be misleading, the biggest problem is that consumers don’t take the time to read them in the first place.

You can learn more about reading food labels for the benefit of your eating by visiting the FDA website.

Healthy eating doesn’t occur overnight, it takes a conscious effort.

Apply these 10 tips to healthy eating and you’ll be headed in the right direction.

Bulimia Disorder Eating

Bulimia Disorder Eating

Overcoming Bulimia Disorder Eating

woman eating foodBulimia Disorder Eating, also known as Bulimia Nervosa, is an eating disorder.

It is something I battled with for 25 years.

It’s a psychological illness that is detrimental to your physical health.

Its sufferers, Bulimics, which are usually young women, experience episodes of binge eating followed by dangerous methods of weight gain prevention.

As I had a sweet tooth I would gorge myself on lollies, also being an emotional eater I would also pig out on anything, feel bad and then throw up. Because of this yo yo treatment of myself, I have always had a problem with my weight, going up and down.

These methods range from the most common, which is self induced vomiting, to abuse of laxatives and excessive exercising.

With me I wouldn’t even think twice about going to the bathroom and sticking my finger down my throat, to make myself sick.

Often times, Bulimics are also Anorexia Nervosa sufferers; therefore, their weight can vary from normal to low.

Either way, someone who is suffering from Bulimia always perceives themselves as overweight.

They don’t feel good enough, they develop a love and hate relationship with food and indulge in self loathing and guilt.

Ironically, most are also high achievers and perfectionists.

While Bulimics are aware of their disorder, it may be difficult for those around them to figure out what is going on until their eating has taken over their lives and ruined their health.

As soon as I walked out of the bathroom after throwing up my husband knew exactly what I had done, he could tell by my eyes, but he couldn’t even stop me

Knowing the signs of Bulimia will help you to realize whether you are a bulimic and possibly in denial, or whether or not someone you love is in need of help: Signs Of Addiction

The signs of Bulimia Disorder Eating are often apparent from the beginning, if you know what to watch for.

However, denial can contribute to ignoring the eating disorder and the delayed treatment can have major damage on the bulimic, as their eating habits get more out of control.

Over the 25 years of being bulimic, I knew what I was doing was wrong, but couldn’t stop myself. In my book Overcoming Life’s Challenges I take you on the journey of being a bulimic and having a problem with my weight to how I overcame this illness.

Damages of Bulimia Disorder Eating 

The effects of Bulimia Disorder Eating on the bulimic is devastating, and it often reaches many of its worst points before they receive any kind of help.

Here are a portion of the possible damages:

  • Tearing of the esophagus (from frequent vomiting and acid content from the stomach)
  • Dental erosion (also caused by acid content)
  • Loss of hair
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Stomach ulcers or rupture
  • Irregular periods
  • Constipation
  • Irregular heartbeat and risk of heart attacks
  • Malnutrition
  • Further decline in self image and mental health
  • Failure of major organs
  • Death

Overcoming Bulimia Disorder Eating

While Bulimia Disorder Eating can cause many irreversible damages to a bulimic’s body, your well being can be restored through treatment.

The road to recovery is long, but here is a short list of tips to get you on your way:

  • Admit to your eating problem and ask loved ones for their support. I never knew the problem was so bad, I had to stop for my well being. Understanding how it can destroy my body, and the damage it can do, I woke up, to just how much I was destroying myself, Yes I did have a problem and for my well being I had to stop, and You Can Too as I Did more in my book Overcoming Life’s Challenges
  • Educate yourself on healthy and unhealthy weight loss methods and discover your appropriate weight. I was 55 years old when I started my journey of educating myself into overcoming this illness and educate myself into a healthy lifestyle.
  • See your physician to have physical health issues resolved.
  • Reach out to support groups and seek behavioral therapy.
  • Find a great treatment center to help you get your life, health and eating back on track.
Don’t assume you will be cured of your Bulimia Disorder Eating quickly. It does take time, but until you realize you have a problem (I never did) that is when you will fight this battle as I have.
 

Prepare for challenges and set realistic goals towards a healthy lifestyle and self image.

Recovery is possible and this includes for you. I did it, it took me a long time, but I beat it.

It takes an enormous amount of persistence and courage, and be proud of yourself for doing it, remember it is possible and it is definitely worth it, to have your life back again.

Becoming the new feminine ideal requires just the right combination of insecurity, exercise, bulimia and surgery.
