Tuesday is Eating Disorder Day

Some tidbits from group:

CBT = cognitive behavioral therapy
The idea behind CBT is that the behavior is the foundation of the disorder or healthy lifestyle. You must break the behavior to break the disorder. This therapy method has the most scientific validation behind it.

IPT = Interpersonal Therapy
This therapy asks the question, “What interpersonal context keeps the disorder going?” This methodology is also validated by the research.

It takes both. I’ve been working on the behaviors for about 15 months now, and I’ve discovered that my feelings of inadequacy are the core schema for my disorder.

Saiety Scale
1 Ravenous
3 Hungry
5 Could eat more
7 Content
10 Physically uncomfortable

If you are like me, you don’t knw when you are “full”. It’s possible to keep stuffing down the food beyond 10.

One way to prevent binges is to recognise when you are hungriest. It seems so obvious to the healthy individual, but to someone who may be hungry ALL the time, it’s not that easy.
