Introduction to Brittany Roche, Author of ‘Binge Eating Recovery’
My name is Brittany Roche, and I am thrilled to join the HealthyPlace blogging community as an author for Binge Eating Recovery. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 14, and have struggled with anxiety and disordered eating (mostly binge eating disorder) for as long as I can remember. I know all too well binge eating is often a difficult subject to talk about which makes communities such as this so vital and powerful for those of us on the path to binge eating recovery.
Getting Into Binge Eating Recovery
For the past six years, I have been in recovery from binge eating disorder (BED). This recovery hasn’t always been pretty. In fact, it’s been chaotic and messy and full of lessons learned the hard way, but with small steps and a lot of perseverance, I’ve been able to make significant improvements to my relationship with food and the control it used to hold over my entire life.
With newly-acquired coping mechanisms, I feel stronger every single day; but, this is still a journey. Through this blog, I hope to share that binge eating recovery journey in all its beauty and ugliness.
You Are Not Alone in Binge Eating Recovery
Above all, I hope this blog helps you realize you are never alone in your binge eating recovery. There are so many people out there struggling with the same habits and behaviors. I hope this community helps us come together in support and healing.

I am so glad to see this blog because I am at a point in my life where I absolutely must address my binge eating and I really don't know where to turn. I've done extensive reading and even attended a Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) conference once. I've had bariatric surgery and lost a considerable amount of weight (again...life of yo-yo-dieting), and am now gaining it back, primarily because of my nighttime binging. I need some practical, down-to-earth guidance as to how to even get started in the recovery process. To be honest, it scares me to think about having to give up something that helps me get through my days and nights.. Can you offer me any suggestions, etc. from your experience? I have been struggling with eating/food "issues" pretty much all my life (I'm 55 years old) and feel extremely hopeless (I am also dealing with depression, chronic pain, and several other physical "ailments". Thanks!
