How My Family Contributed to My Binge Eating Disorder

Candy Wrappers - Binge Eating Blog Post

Before this story begins, I want to tell you the end: I’m healthy now. I don’t define myself by what I eat or how much of it I eat. The food thoughts aren’t always on repeat. When I look in the mirror, I’m happy with the person staring back at me...even if I’m not 100% satisfied every single day with the body I live in. That’s normal. And I’m OK with it.

Am I Eating “Bad Food”? How Intuitive Eating Can Help

Intuitive Eating Is Your Key to HealthEveryone is born with the intuitive knowledge for eating. As a baby, you cry when you are hungry, and you stop eating when your need is satisfied. Eating is as natural as breathing.

A Journey To Health

I decided today is the day I am going to look for help. I don’t know where to start. I’m afraid I’m afraid of others knowing my secret, I’m afraid of letting go of leaving disorder, I’m afraid of what I will be without it, I’m afraid of what will happen if I continue in my eating disorder. I am afraid to make that first call, but I have to do it.

From Healthy to Heath Risk

With summer approaching many families, recent graduates and young people prepare for vacations, beach outings and outdoor activities of all types. It is not uncommon to see hoards of people lining up at gym’s and yoga studios around the country attempting to achieve their “ summer body”. While a healthy exercise regimen and well balanced diet can be a good thing, there is a thin line between being healthy and falling into the trap of over exercise and extreme dieting.       

What Does it Mean to "Have a Voice"?

So many people that come to Rebecca’s House share their stories about finding their voice in recovery. But we all have a voice, right? So, what does this mean?

Eating Disorder Treatment

With New Years comes the onslaught of the proverbial resolution. Ranging from being kinder, to getting a better job, to everyone’s favorite – losing weight – we make these declarations and, by February, they have gone by the wayside … but not for everyone. For some, the losing weight resolution becomes less about dropping a few pounds and more about achieving an impossible standard of being ultra thin.

Social Media and Eating Disorders – What You Need to Know

Social media can be a great tool for keeping in touch with friends and family strewn around the globe, sharing information, photos, and ideas.  The technology is really amazing and convenient, but, for some people, social media can be detrimental to their health.  Images of ultra-thin people abound on social media, as do numerous links to recipes and luscious food blogs. Studies are showing that social media can be contributing to the rise in eating disorders requiring treatment.

Eating Disorders and Athletes – What You Need to Know

On any given day you can turn on the television and watch college athletes or Olympic hopefuls striving to reach their dream in their desired sport. For the most part, these athletes are in tip-top shape, perfect specimens of the human body, but there is a darker side to achieving that flawless form for a percentage of those athletes, and that is an eating disorder like anorexia nervosa or bulimia.

The Impact of Eating Disorders on the LGBT Community

It’s often said that eating disorders do not discriminate.  Anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating don’t care about your socio-economic status, age or race, but what about when it comes to your sexual orientation? Research is showing that eating disorders are impacting some segments of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community more than the general population. The issues that are associated with LGBT people – discrimination, and lack of support and understanding – can complicate finding eating disorder treatment.

Nutritional Therapy a Key Component for Eating Disorder Recovery

An often-overlooked concept, when it comes to eating disorders, is nutrition. It may seem like an oxymoron, but when it comes to the recovery phase of an eating disorder treatment plan, it may be the key to long-term success.
