Defining Binge Eating Recovery with Andrew Walen

Andrew and I talk about what Binge Eating Disorder Recovery is and the 10 phases of recovery. We base our conversation directly from the book [amazon_link id=”0393706958″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder: Effective Strategies from Therapeutic Practice and Personal Experience by Carolyn Costin & Gwen Schubert Grabb.[/amazon_link]

 Ten Phases of Eating Disorder Recovery

1. I DON’T THINK I HAVE A PROBLEM.

2. I MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM BUT IT’S NOT THAT BAD.

3. I HAVE A PROBLEM BUT I DON’T CARE.

4. I WANT TO CHANGE BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW AND I’M SCARED.

5. I TRIED TO CHANGE BUT I COULDN’T.

6. I CAN STOP SOME OF THE BEHAVIORS BUT NOT ALL OF THEM.

7. I CAN STOP THE BEHAVIORS, BUT NOT MY THOUGHTS.

8. I AM OFTEN FREE FROM BEHAVIORS AND THOUGHTS, BUT NOT ALL THE TIME.

9. I AM FREE FROM BEHAVIORS AND THOUGHTS.

10. I AM RECOVERED.
