Binge Eating

by | Aug 17, 2021

7Binge eating involves episodes of eating large quantities of food (often very quickly and to the point of feeling discomfort) along with a feeling of a loss of control during a binge and often feelings shame, distress or guilt after a binge. It is one of the most common forms of disordered eating in North America.

We designed a program for individuals who experience binge eating without compensatory behaviour (i.e., without purging or using laxatives to compensate for overeating). This program provide evidence based tools to address the physiological as well as emotional drivers of binge episodes within the context of a compassionate and supportive virtual group environment. Participants will learn scientifically based tools including mindfulness, self-compassion, behaviour change skills, engaging intrinsic motivation, value based living, and emotion management. Facilitated by Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley, a clinical psychologist with expertise in eating behaviours and behaviour change.

    Additional Resource:

    We also recommend you to purchase Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley’s book called “Healthy Habits Suck” as a great evidence-based self-help book.

    Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST.

    If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to.
