Labeling Yourself With "Binge Eating Disorder", "Compulsive Overeating Disorder" or "Food Addiction"

Nearly every self-help book or article I’ve read on binge eating disorder or food addiction has a section to help the reader decide if he or she really has binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating disorder or is a «food addict».

Often there’s a checklist with questions like, «Do you eat more than you intended more than 3 times per week?» Or «Do you hide how much you eat?»

These books or articles are often written by someone that has no personal experience with binge eating, or by people who believe in addictive disease. By asking questions like this, in their opinion, they’re setting you up to conclude you have a problem.

In my own opinion, I prefer to take an opposite angle: if you aren’t sure you have a problem with eating, you probably don’t. If you do have a problem or struggle with it, you’re aware of it.

I am not going to post information or spend time in my books or programs teaching you what binge eating, compulsive overeating or food addiction is. It’s different for everyone. If you feel you have a problem, you are well aware that you need to seek support for it. It would be arrogant of me to label you as someone that has a problem if you strongly believe you do not.

However, if you’re reading this and suspect you have an issue with overeating regularly, then you likely do have an issue to address.

I’m guessing your assumption is based on your experience with overeating food on a fairly regular basis, or often thinking that you know you’ll «cave in» and feel like you can’t stop eating.

You’re probably engaged in an internal debate about what to do: to eat less at certain times, to try to find a diet with food that you won’t want to overeat, to eat «safe» foods only in case you do overeat, etc. This conflict or indecision fits my definition of having an «issue» with food such that it’s not making you happy.

When learning about symptoms of binge eating disorder or compulsive overeating disorder, it can be easy to take on the label of «disorder» and see yourself as someone that’s afflicted with a «disorder.»

Why?

Because taking on the concept that you have a disorder and your binge eating is a symptom of it, a great responsibility can be lifted from your shoulders.

I remember thinking this when I was dealing with anorexia, and later bulimia, and then binge eating. I saw myself as someone with a disorder I would have to deal with for the rest of my life. It was this «thing» that was a part of me and required constant management.

Taking on this idea that I had a lifelong eating «disorder» that merely had changed forms, no longer did it seem like I was behaving stupidly and blindly. No longer did I feel an urgent need to quit binge eating, or to beat myself up for being weak. I was simply doing what people with eating disorders do.

While it’s certainly helpful to recognize if you have a problem with food, there’s a step that follows that will be what keeps you stuck or helps you overcome the issue: taking action. By seeing that there’s something that doesn’t make you happy, you now have a world of possibilities that can open up because you can choose to take new actions that WILL lead to you being happy.

You can work on developing your ability to recognize your conflicting thoughts around wanting to eat and wanting to feel in control. Those conflicting thoughts are the result of two parts of your brain in conflict… your «primal» animal brain and your «higher» logical brain.

When you can distinguish between the two parts and understand the motivations behind each, you quickly gain leverage on yourself and can overcome the behavior you are unhappy with.

Five Brilliant Bijou Hotels in London

Visitors to London face all kinds of choices – when to go, what to do, and perhaps most importantly, where to stay. When thinking about the best place to pick for your home base, your home-away-from-home, think about the features you want in the hotels you're looking for. Do you want discount hotels in the luxury line? If so, then try looking at some of the most curious, interesting, and unique accommodation in one of the world's favorite cities.

1. The Rockwell

A year or so old, The Rockwell gives great value for money if you're looking for simple, stylish hotel rooms at prices that won't break the bank. The location, in two restored Victorian houses in Cromwell Road (that's Kensington, for those who haven't taken the Knowledge) puts one of London's swankiest districts literally on its visitor's doorsteps, giving easy access to some of the cooler museums, restaurants, and more.

2. Base2stay hotel

Syncing your iPod with your laptop and feel like you need a fix if you haven't been in front of a computer for a few hours? base2stay, also located in Kensington, boasts Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, with prices from under a hundred quid. What's not to love about that? Tweet away your restive hours, make plans with easy internet access, and catch up with friends in this kitted-out bijou hotel.

3. One Aldwych

Locate your stay nearer the center of town at One Aldwych, just steps from Leicester Square, Covent Garden, and the clubs of Soho. Not for the faint of heart (or thin of wallet), this is one of those gorgeous, upscale places you want to stay but know you can't afford unless you find a free room on a website for discount hotels. Two to five hundred quid is what a night at this place will set you back – but the location and company will be worth it.

4. Clink Hostel

Low-rent is hi-fashion again with joints like the Clink, in Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia, making Kings Cross slightly more welcoming to low-budget travelers. If you're willing to bunk up with strangers, try their dorm beds for GBP15 a night; if you're looking to live more luxuriously here you can shell out thirty quid for a double private room. Part of a new breed of futuristic hostel, the Clink promises more elegance and comfort than its older ancestors.

5. Hoxton Hotel

Finally, a trendy place in the trendiest of London neighborhoods – Shoreditch's Hoxton Hotel. This is a well-planned hospital, catering to a clientele which is looking for what Time Out calls, "A kind of postmodern country lodge." Deal-seekers will find no hotels with better bargains, since the Hoxton is known for releasing a precious few rooms for a pound, on a three-monthly rotation.

These are just a handful of the amazing bijou places you can stay when traveling in London – there are plenty more, and you can find out about them by reading recommendations from around the world, on the web!

Manchester United Under Malcolm Glazer

Manchester United is a term which is known to football fans all over the world. It is a football club, an English football club to be precise. It is based on Old Tafford, United Kingdom. They are also known as the «Red Devils» of England. It is one of the most famous and popular football club with more than 300 million supporters all over the world. 300 million can be roughly estimated as 5% of the total population! They are the most successful and influential club and ever since the 1990s they are rumored to be the richest clubs in existence. The club had a humble beginning during the initial stages and was even closed down on number of occasions due to mounting debts.

Being initially called the Newton Health Y&R, it was said to be sponsored by a health club. Five European trophies have been credited to them ever since the club came into existence. This included one international cup, one European super cup, two European champion’s cup, one cup winner cup. They were bestowed with 12 domestic cups and 16 premier league cups too. They were also relevant in finding and establishing Europe’s G-14 football club. Malcolm Glazer who was an American businessman had invested on Manchester United in 2005. He had paid a staggering $1.47 billion just for a 28.7% share on the team. It was after a year long battle in the courts that he could ultimately get his hands on the team.

He had faced difficulties in claiming the club, due to the facts the takeover had made the club poorer by $850 million. Also he being a businessman, fans did not like the idea of a business man holding the reins of one of the most successful football clubs of the world. They had hoped for someone who had adequate knowledge about the sport to invest on the club. Escalating prices of the tickets also angered the fans as the club often received hefty sums from advertisements and sponsorship dealings. A vast majority of the fans even went to the extent of not renewing their season tickets for the forth coming matches of the Manchester United. Songs disrespecting Glazer and his sons can still be heard on many matches played by Manchester United.

Fans worldwide have been largely discontent by the takeover of the club by Malcolm Glazer. He had played significantly no role in the upcoming of the football club. His children were the ones who enjoyed director posts of the club for sometime. Despite these shortcomings, the club has surged forward under his guidance. He had spent quite large sums of money on the club and even more in roping the world’s best football players into the club. The club had won two major cups in 2008 itself, the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League. It is to be noted that the Glazer group does not interfere with the daily business dealings of Manchester united and have left such activities to David Gill, the chief executive of Manchester united. Steep increase in the prices of the tickets had prompted many faithful followers to stay away from the club matches.
