What Does It Feel Like To Struggle With Disordered Eating?
We all struggle with some form of disordered eating at some point in our lives. Eating because we are stressed, because we are emotional or eating in a way that promotes poor health.
You may feel out of control with food, eating large amounts of food, quickly. Or you may start restricting food, because you need to feel in control when the world around you feels chaotic.
People who are emotional eaters are more likely to feel out of control and stressed. They often struggle with confidence and feel worthless. Sometimes they will use food as an instant comfort, and at times food will provide relief, gratification or reward.
You may eat junk food, and feel guilty afterwards. You may experience numbness or a dulling sensation of your emotions. Food may alleviate pain or stress, but this relief is short lived as you feel negative about your eating behaviour.
