Are you familiar with that? You took the scary step and decided to heal your eating disorder. And then suddenly, without warning, an uncontrollable, extreme hunger overran you.
“Is this still normal or am I addicted to food now? Do I eat too much or even binge? Have I failed?”
You spend most of your day thinking about food, watching the popular “full day of eatings”, collecting recipes or planning your next meal, even though you’ve only just eaten and your body is craving all the foods that you denied to eat for so long (cake, fries, chocolate, biscuits, pizza, cheese, pasta, rice, …).
… you can finally eat whatever you want, whenever you want, without a guilty conscience.
… you no longer need to be afraid of losing control over food because you can trust your body again and listen to your feelings of hunger and satiety.
… your life is no longer just about food, exercise and your body.
… you feel pleasantly full and satisfied after eating.
If you now think that none of this will be possible for you, then you’ve come to the right place. No matter how long you’ve been in recovery, no matter how much you weigh, if you engage in compensating behaviours, or if you (don´t) have an official diagnosis:
In twelve weeks you will learn to heal your extreme hunger and regain trust in your own body so that you can finally eat freely and intuitively again.
Together we will work out what motivates you for recovery and set up goals for the next 12 weeks. This means you are well prepared in case the road to recovery ever gets bumpy and difficult.
Using easy-to-understand illustrations and explanations, I will give you all the information about extreme hunger, mental hunger, the connection between compensatory behavior and binge eating, etc., so that you can recognize your triggers and pursue your extreme hunger with a clear conscience.
Based on your preferences and your everyday life, I will give you tips on how to best organize your meals and meal structure. You will be given recipes that are suitable for everyday use and do not require you to count calories or weigh portions. Structured eating will help you regain control of hunger and satiety and give your body all the nutrients it needs to heal.
I will support you in identifying the beliefs that no longer serve you. You will also learn how to develop helpful and self-appreciating beliefs in the long term, because what we think about our environment, others and above all ourselves also influences how we perceive our bodies and what/how much we eat. Our goal is to break the diet mentality and all beliefs that fuel your eating disorder.
In the long run, you can’t just ignore all of your fear foods. Avoidance behavior leads to an increase in anxiety, guilt, shame and can trigger overeating. That’s why we work out which fear foods you can still have to face and gradually challenge them systematically.
So far you have probably used the control over your body, your weight, sports and disordered eating behaviours to deal with emotions and difficult life situations. We want to replace this coping strategy with more constructive and sustainable tools. For this we will develop an individual tool box so that you can meet yourself again with more self-esteem and self-love.
Finally, we will evaluate the past few weeks and take a look into the future. Where are you now, what have you already achieved and what can still happen? We will also work out how you can deal with triggers constructively in the future, so that you can achieve your personal goals and no longer have to look for comfort and security in eating/not eating.
You finally want to live again, not just survive? And you finally want to put an end to the constant thoughts of food?
