    How To Stop, And Recover From, A Binge

    in Weight Loss

    I order to become seriously overweight, I had to engage in some serious overeating.  Bread, sweets, and chips were my downfall, and even when they stopped providing me with any real enjoyment I couldn't stop until the bags and cartons were empty.


    Even though I've been at a healthy weight for more than seven years now, I can still be caught off guard, and end up consumed by sugary, starchy, salty, snacks.  


    In this episode of The Sugar Freedom Show I descroibe how I get off of the sugar train, and I hope that my story can help you if you ever find yourself in the middle of a bout of serious, unwanted overeating.  In addition, I share the foods that help me recover from the terrible junk food hangover I always get as a result of eating my trigger foods.  My entire eating program, which helped me manage my food addiction and get to a healthy weight, is available at www.sugarfreedom.com.  For more information, free sample meal plans, and recipes, take the sugar addiciton quiz at www.sugarfreedom.com/blog.

    Curtis Harwell and Kim Duke discuss Binge Eating and What is it?

    in Fitness

    Binge eating disorder typically includes periods of excessive overeating. However, a person with a binge eating disorder does not subsequently induce purging (vomiting), as is the case with bulimia.

    Binge eating can occur on its own, or alongside other disorders or conditions, such as Prader-Willi disorder, or a lesion of the hypothalamus gland.

    Binge eating can encourage the development of hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Treatment options depend on what is causing the binge eating.

    A person with a binge eating disorder feels compelled to eat too much. Individuals will consume enormous quantities of food, even when they are not hungry. Binge eaters believe they have absolutely no control over their eating.

    Can Clean Eating Help You Avoid Sunburn?

    in Health

    It's summer time!  We are outside in the sun and getting our vitamin D, or so we think.  Often we slather on gobs of chemically laden sunblock to protect ourselves from getting burned.  Our bodies do not absorb Vitamin D if the suns rays do not reach our skin.  We are so paranoid about skin cancer or just burning from all the media hype we hear on TV.  It certainly is a threat but can we have our sun and vitamin D without the burn or threat of skin cancer?  Studies are showing that eating healthy, eating clean and green can reduce the chance of sunburn by keeping the skin hydrated and somewhat resistant to sunburn.

    Exploring Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder with Dr. Paul Garfinkel

    in Health

    An Invisible Disorder….unlike Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder can hide behind a façade of average body weight, happiness and competence. 


    According to a report by CTV last February, Canadian hospitals and clinics specializing in eating disorders say there is a rise in the numbers of adults, teens and children, some as young as five, seeking help for eating disorders.  Most of them are women.


    I believe this topic also extends to those of us who may not fit into the Bulimic or Binge Eating category but also suffer from a life-long struggle with food, weight and dieting. 


    These disorders may be baffling to some and a very real obsession for others.  Acting in an insidious way, destroying lives.  Yet perhaps there is a gift of self-empowerment, love and life fulfillment by heading into and through these disorders? 


    What I’ve come to learn is that these types of eating disorders are usually not about the food but symptoms of much deeper issues. Issues that I’d like to invite Dr. Paul Garfinkel, a leading Toronto Psychiatrist who specializes in Eating Disorders to discuss on WbD Radio this Wednesday at 3:30pm (EST)


    I look forward to diving into Dr. Garfinkel’s wealth of knowledge and more importantly, his experience with these disorders in an effort to raise awareness and promote healthy recovery.
