Food Addiction Support Group

An individual suffering from a food addiction disorder frequently experiences episodes of uncontrolled eating, or binging, during which they may feel frenzied or out of control. They will eat much more quickly than is normal, and continue to eat even past the point of being uncomfortably full. Binging in this way is generally followed by a period of intense guilt feelings and depression.

    Hello my name is Michelle and I am very new to this website. I wanted to join this group because I have a addiction to sugar. It had been real bad off and on for many years. A few months ago I was really addicted to this cake where I would eat the whole cake in one seating. the last time I bought the cake the next day I ended up coming down with a fever. I just wonder if I caused my body to...
  • I am a 29 year old woman, and I suffer from food addiction. It has always been there for me when nobody else was! It became my comfort and my go to at a young age and has continued to haunt me through my adult life. I recently lost almost 80 lbs and now am slowly gaining it back because I can not control myself with food! It seems at times it is ALL I can think about even if I am not hungry and...

    Can't sto binging....

    Hi everyone...I ended up here because I don't know where to go. I feel like this bad habit is drowning me. I don't have the control of my body anymore. I don't have friends. I just want to be alone, with my eating disorder and mystupid body. I went to a psychologist, but she wasn't helpfull... she focused other problems, even if I told her that they all came from my relationship with food.

    Binging hell...

    I have never reached out or even spoken about the difficulties that I am facing until now. I am a binge eater and it is only getting worse. I feel so extremely embarrassed and pathetic. I never thought in a million years that I would be the type of person to say that I have a eating disorder and it feels horrible. I am overweight but not obese, which is funny because if anyone had to see the...

    Down and out

    I used to be this person who exudes confidence, who was up to do anything, anytime. I never worried about what I ate because sports kept me so thin and I enjoyed working out in my free time. I'm 5'10 and my weight my whole life has been 140-150 always. Three years ago I found out unexpectedly my new boyfriend and I shortly into our relationship were about to be parents. It shattered so many plans...
  • I am a 36-year-old male who struggles with food addiction. I am fine throughout most of the day, at least on weekdays, when I am busy with work and projects. However, I struggle especially at night, often right before going to bed, and on weekends, when I dont have much structure. I go to the kitchen in search of sweet thingschocolate, cookies, fruit, jam. Sometimes I will go for fatty, salty...

  • I am a 22 year old female, and most of my high school and college years I have been energetic and highly motivated. Yet this last year has been extremely difficult for me. I have become depressed, and now spend most of my time either working, or watching t.v. and eating. I don't really do anything else. I would call it mere laziness, but that just doesn't feel right.I am a hard worker, yet when I...
  • ughhhh.... i need serious help.I know that eating any wheat or sugar will make me horribly depressed and anxious. I know that eating these things will sabotage my inner-peace. I know this, and I abstain. Once, I abstained for almost 6 whole months. Inevitably, I relapse. I binge. I feel like dying. Through all of these ups and downs, I run. I run for miles. And yet. Here I am again. A weekend of...

    Hello...Does anyone follow IE method? Focusing on eating when hungry and stop when full, not stuffed. I used to own 2 self help books regarding this method and am finally making peace with food and eat when am hungry and no dieting stuff. I am avoiding the scale and learning to love myself and not bringing my mindset into the dieting game land of horror...I hope others will follow... Take Care ...
  • I have been using food to "stuff my feelings" since I was a child (my mom noticed when I was around 9). As a child of an alcoholic mother (who is now sober) and a mostly absent bipolar father, helping raise my special needs brother, what i ate was the one thing i could control in my life. Now i'm at the heaviest I've ever been as i still use food to stuff my feelings, and i'm sick of it, but...
