Eating Addiction Recovery Tools
by Jan and Judy Wilson
First, for those who have come here to begin, or restart, recovery from eating addiction, here are some initial suggestions.
- Do not (ever) go on a “Diet”.
- Plan how many times to eat each day, for example 3 meals and one snack.
- Start developing a flexible, reasonable food plan.
- Avoid foods that you know you have trouble eating moderately, like high sugar or high fat foods.
- Find someone to share your daily recovery experiences with, struggles, frustrations, and successes.
- Weigh yourself no more than once a month.
