Last week, I bared it all on Body Love TV by opening up about the fact that I have struggled with Binge Eating Disorder (BED) my whole life. I still remember one of my earliest episodes of binge eating, and the shame I felt over it.

The official definition of Binge Eating Disorder , courtesy of NEDA, is:

“Binge eating disorder (BED) is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of eating large quantities of food (often very quickly and to the point of discomfort); a feeling of a loss of control during the binge; experiencing shame, distress or guilt afterwards; and not regularly using unhealthy compensatory measures (e.g., purging) to counter the binge eating.” - National Eating Disorders Association

Although I've spent way more time and energy dealing with BED in the course of my life than I would like to admit, I haven't allowed it to prevent me from becoming the woman that I want to be, or keep me from living at full amplitude.

For me, overcoming BED was about changing one core belief. Learn more in this episode of Body Love TV:
