Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

“I Deserve To Binge.”

Many years ago a client told me she binged because she felt she “deserved to binge”. That was the only way she knew to give to herself, to take care of her emotional needs.

She worked hard on her recovery. Then one day she knocked on my office door. She couldn’t wait to share her new insight. With a peaceful look on her face and a smile she said, “I get it now. I deserve NOT to binge.”

About Ellen Shuman

Ellen on the phone

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
