In this episode, I'll be talking about the end of my podcast, "Bingeproof Brain." While I initially planned to continue the podcast after having a baby, the realities of motherhood have made it difficult for me to find the time and energy to create content. My priorities have shifted and my passion for the topic of binge eating recovery has lessened.

Are you tired of the "diet starts Monday" mentality?
If you're like me, you've probably told yourself that you'll stop binge eating and start eating healthier on Monday more times than you can count. But the truth is, change is hard. And when we tell ourselves that we'll start later, we're only setting ourselves up for failure.

Here are some of the things you'll learn in this episode:
Why the "diet starts Monday" mentality is a fallacy
The dangers of procrastinating on change
How to recognize and overcome thought errors that keep you stuck
Practical tips for combating the myth of “I’ll start tomorrow”
 
Listen now and learn how to finally break free from the "diet starts Monday" mentality!

In this episode, I explore the idea of turning vices into virtues. I discuss how certain traits or tendencies associated with binge eating (like compulsivity, laziness, and lack of consistency) can be channeled into more positive behaviors.
We don't need to change our personality traits, we can use them to our advantage.

In this episode, I dive into my personal journey of giving up ultra-processed foods for over two and a half years. I address the misconceptions about labeling food as 'junk' and why it's essential to avoid assigning morality to what we eat.
 
I share how my journey began in 2013 when I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle for health, ethical, and environmental reasons. I eliminated processed foods from my diet. I discuss the factors that helped me succeed, including moving away from discomfort, aligning with my values, and witnessing positive changes like clear skin and weight loss.
 
I also opened up about how I was influenced and, at times, 'brainwashed' by online health influencers who advocated for a specific lifestyle. This led me to follow their advice without questioning, which eventually impacted my life negatively.
 
I touch upon how I ultimately stopped my strict dietary regimen due to health concerns, financial factors, and personal circumstances. I provide insights into what helped me stay on track and the importance of paying attention to your body's feedback.
 
Tune in to learn more about my journey, the lessons I've learned, and why critical thinking is essential in making informed choices about your health and lifestyle.

explore how social settings and peer pressure can contribute to overeating while drinking.
 
I'll also share my personal experience with alcohol and how to make informed choices when it comes to alcohol and binge eating, emphasizing that it's not about giving up alcohol entirely but developing a healthy relationship with it.

In this podcast episode, I present you with 8 mental habits you should learn to avoid if you want to overcome binge eating. Insisting on perfection, having a fixed mindset, and avoiding strong feelings are just a few of the factors that hold you back from fully recovering from an eating disorder, especially binge eating. Fortunately, recognizing those unhelpful mental habits is the first step in creating positive change so you can move forward toward reaching food freedom.

Did you know that when you pose a question, your brain, for a brief moment, will focus its resources solely on answering that question? This is a mental reflex called 'instinctive elaboration'.
If you find yourself asking low-quality questions such as:
“Why do I have no self-control when it comes to food?”,
“Why is intuitive eating working for everyone, but not me?”,
“Why am I still struggling with binge eating despite my best efforts to stop?”;
your brain will seek answers to these questions.
These answers don’t help you, don’t serve you, and don’t put you in the right mindset.
The higher quality the question, the higher quality the answer will be, so instead of asking yourself low-quality questions, ask high-quality, empowering questions that support you in a positive way. Let your brain come up with creative and motivating replies, that will create an emotion that inspires you to take action.
This week, I will explain how to start asking the right questions that will guide your eating disorder recovery in the direction of real food freedom.

“Never Binge Again” by Dr. Glenn Livingston is a book that asks you to label all thoughts demanding excess food as "the pig" (or whatever deprecating term you prefer). It's a straightforward approach that gives you no excuses. This book appeals to people who are fans of a little tough love. But isn’t there already enough self-loathing and blaming that comes with binge eating, so we don’t need extra?
In today’s podcast episode, I’m going to discuss why I personally dislike the Never Binge Again(TM) Method to stop binge eating.
