#11 "I'm Eating Regular Meals But Still Not Feeling Full!" - What You Should Do
Are you now implementing regular meals to end binge eating but still find yourself feeling this massive surge of hunger during the times you normally binge on? What if I told you that it has to do with the hunger hormone ghrelin? Ghrelin, the hunger hormone, increases at certain periods of the day but what is most interesting is that WHEN and HOW MUCH ghrelin is released is determined by your eating pattern. In this episode, I will explain what you can do to re-regulate ghrelin so you will start to feel full outside your binges and not be extremely hungry during your usual binge times!

#9 Losing Motivation for Binge Eating Recovery? - Here Are 3 Ways to Measure Your Progress
Do you find yourself constantly bingeing even though you seem like you are doing all the right things? That can be frustrating and I completely understand why you could feel that way. I want you to know that you may have had some progress. Progress is not found in a number which we have been told by media and diet culture to aim for. Binge eating progress is found in these: 1. How long are the gaps in between your binges? 2. How do you feel around food? Are fear foods starting to turn into 'neutral' or 'safe' foods? 3. Do you start to notice yourself detaching yourself from numbers such as the number on the scale or your clothes size?
