Like so many of us, four years ago I set out on a January weight loss journey. But unlike my previous attempts, this time I succeeded, dropping a whopping 90 pounds, as I share in my book “Thinspired."
What made this attempt different? I realized something very important. The often repeated mantra “everything in moderation” simply wasn’t true for me. I had to accept that I had a serious problem with binge eating. Certain trigger foods would always lead me down the road to a binge, causing accompanying mood swings. Completely eliminating my personal triggers was the key to finding true freedom, and major weight loss.
So, how do you know if you might have a problem with binge eating, and what should you do about it? Here are some tips that can help.
