You have to face a long and difficult struggle in order to cure your eating disorder.
Consider how you will eat and manage food when you are better. Begin now and eat
as though you are already cured. However, since your psychic strength has not
as yet been sufficiently developed to manage your problem, you may return to your
old habits again. But don't give up! Carry on trying. Keep a record of the number
of normal meals you have every week and you will then see how successful you are
Every time you fail, work out a plan for preventing this particular
problem from happening again, e.g., if you don't buy any cheese, you won't be
able to devour all of it during the evening.
Never give up, even though
it may seem hopeless. If you fail, gather new energy and try again.
you suddenly find yourself in a compulsive eating attack, try to listen to your
real feeling immediately. Throw away all junk food and search instead for the
real feelings which you experience as hunger.
The aim is to:
Stop starving. Eat when you are
hungry and need nourishment.
If you regurgitate your food, stop regurgitating.
If you continue vomiting your food then your compulsive eating attacks will continue
and you will never get well.
Eat as a response to physical hunger and
not for emotional or other reasons.
Eat food which gives you satisfaction,
not junk food which only confuses the body and gives neither nourishment nor satisfaction.
