One of my biggest motivators for creating the blog Confessions of A Binge Eater is to help take the shame out of B.E.D. (Binge Eating Disorder). My experiences pre and post diagnosis were night and day differences for me. The changes I’ve experienced simply by knowing my diagnosis have been enlightening and for me life-altering, as I know how to address my disorder – or at least have a path to recovery. I used to be ashamed of of my eating habits. I hated eating in front of people and I would always order something off the menu that many […]

Each has their own take on weight loss […]
Late October is the opening ceremony to my favorite time of year. While living in L.A. we may not experience the changing color of leaves or the cool rustling breezes and slow introduction into a snowy winter, the evidence of what is to come is definitely in the air as the holiday season is upon us. And what does that mean for pretty much all the country? Well, one word certainly comes to mind: FOOD. The gluttony that’s to follow will surely send us all to hell. But, by now, I think we’ve all accepted our fate for the decadence […]
I love traveling the country to talk about Binge Eating Disorder; I also genuinely love educating and helping others. . Every time I’m in a new city I have short bouts of opportunity to explore and take in the sites – new places, new peoples, and of course new restaurants.
