What woman - young or old - has not been concerned about her weight and has not tried to control her eating, or her weight, at one point in her life? Focus on women's body shape and size is encouraged by the media and society, but frequent concerns over one’s body weight and strict attempts to control eating can lead to distress. Restricting eating or attempting to control your weight through rigid exercise can become harder and harder to maintain and can lead to increasing cycles of distress followed by increased restrictions. These cycles can stop.
Counselling can help you understand and stop the roller coaster of yo-yo dieting, binge eating and purging, and can help you feel more in control of your eating.
