When Is It Time To Find a Good Eating Disorder Coach?
It can be embarrassing to even think about finding an eating
disorder recovery coach. Eating disorders/disordered eating
often comes with a lot of guilds. It’s likely that if you are struggling,
you blame yourself for it. You tell yourself that you should be able
to do this all on your own.
And you’re absolutely wrong.
Eating disorders are not a personal failure. They are an epidemic.
You absolutely have the right to seek help if you feel you can’t beat an eating disorder on your own.
Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy with an Eating Disorder Dietitian
Suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), or an Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS) are life-threatening illnesses and require serious attention. Having an eating disorder dietitian on your side is essential to ensure your body is being fueled properly to facilitate complete healing within mind, body, and spirit.
Unlike other eating disorders, binge eating & binge eating disorders can often be missed. We typically think of bulimia when talking about binge eating, but binge eating can occur without any of the compensatory behaviors seen in bulimia nervosa. A binge eating disorder coach helps you distinguish the difference between good, evidence-based health advice, fad diets, and flat-out unhealthy decisions. Just like a gym coach can get you the most out of your workout routine, an eating disorder coach can get you the most out of managing your dietary health.

Binge Eating Disorder Coach
Binge eating disorder (BED) is one of the more common forms of eating disorders. Binge eating is also a common behavior among people who do not meet the criteria of diagnosis but are still suffering. Binge eating is NOT due to a lack of willpower or discipline. Binge eating is when a person loses control with food and overeats, often to the point of significant physical discomfort. The episodes of eating are followed by tremendous guilt and shame. If you struggle with binge eating, a binge eating coach can be a literal lifesaver.
