Tips for Recovery from Binge Eating Disorder
1) Make sure you are seeing a primary care doctor that you are comfortable with. Ask your PCP to arrange for blood work to check your thyroid, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.
2) Make sure your Primary Doctor refers you to appropriate specialists (Such a as sleep disorder specialist or endocrinologist)
3) Begin a journal where you write about your feelings.
4) Talk to your doctor about starting a realistic exercise program.

6) Learn to rate your level of hunger/fullness on a hunger scale.
7) Learn relaxation techniques.
8) Recognize the importance of self-care. Get a pedicure, buy yourself flowers, or go for a massage. This helps to send yourself the message that you are worth taking care of.
