Weight Loss Support - Has anyone had/is having CBT with a therapist to deal with binge eating?

05-13-2010, 11:40 AM
Hey all, I got referred to an eating disorder specialist today because of my binge eating behaviours. I was just wondering if anyone else has been through CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and if anyone would mind letting me know how it was and if it worked? I hope I can start to target bad behaviours through this, I'm not sure I could do it completely alone.

Thanks chicks x

I know a lot of people have had success with the Beck Diet Solution which is based on CBT but its a book (or 2) written by a CBT therapist. It sounds like it could be a good thing to see a therapist.

Hi Jynx-

I see a therapist about my eating issues, including overeating. I no longer binge like I used to and I owe a lot of that to therapy. I am not sure if my therapist uses CBT or not, but I think she does. I know she uses a lot of talk therapy and examines my behavior and we talk about the reasons behind it, processing the emotions, and it has really helped me. GOOD LUCK! I have the Beck Diet Solution too and I think it is an awesome book.
