I have described in the last several blogs how rebellion, self doubt, marriage, guilt, and perfectionism can cause you to overeat and or binge. I have said it before, ANY life frustration can be the trigger that makes you eat too much. And what makes you eat too much one day will be different than what makes you eat too much on another day. This can be disappointing if you are hoping to find and fix that ONE trigger that explains it all.
But if you look closer at yourself there IS something that ties it all together. It is not out there where things happen to you. It is inside you. The common denominator is the way YOUR mind and body responds to the frustrating triggers of a complex life.
On bad eating days, those days when you have an overwhelming desire to binge or eat too much, you are really "hurting too much" and you don’t believe you can bear the pain. It's not the source of the problem that makes you overeat, its the pain you feel when you think about what's bothering you.
