On today’s episode of The Dr. Nina Show, I break down five mistaken beliefs about binge eating at night. Then I give you the raw truth about each of these principles. Get the scoop on whether you should be:
Practicing mindful eating
Eating more during the day so you won’t binge at night
Trying to distract yourself with other things at night
Sleeping more, thinking it will make you binge less
Avoiding trigger foods to stop nighttime bingeing
I also talk with caller Jenny about setting boundaries with her mother, giving her empowering strategies to lessen stress and increase harmony.
