That’s when the weight of the world weighs so heavy on your shoulders that the only thing that makes you feel better is to eat. You give in to your cravings and you just gorge yourself on so much food.
I know it’s a problem for a lot of people. Because let’s face it. You’re not going to find yourself 40 or 50 kilos overweight if you’re not binge eating to some extent. And usually, there’s an emotional issue that’s causing you to binge.

Here is a terrific video to watch on vulnerability and why we numb.
The problem is that we cannot numb the bad emotions without numbing the good. We numb it all. You have heard me talk about numbing agents before (namely food and alcohol). This video reinforces those thoughts and provides a strategy.
