Is there safe Binge Eating Sugar?

If you are binge eating it can result in many health complications, if it is sugar which you are bingeing a new study shows that it can literally shorten the lifespan. We received an email from a reader who describes herself as a “binger”, she drinks about 2 liters of soda per day whenever she is bingeing. Binge eating usually involves the consumption of many different foods but there are times when we simply crave an abundance of sugar.



Sugars have received a lot of negative attention lately and some of this bad press has actually not been fair, in moderation plain white sugar is very safe. There are many people who are consuming a tremendous amount of the natural sweeteners and it causing a tremendous amount of medical complications. Sugars are safe in limited quantities but once a person is consuming a lot of sugar it affects the brain, heart, liver and even speeds the ageing process. A New study from The University of California study reveals the stunning way that sugars speed the aging process and causes wrinkling of the skin. The shorter your telomere, the harder it is for a cell to regenerate, this is why some people age faster than others, the new study shows sugars actually speed up the aging process.

“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,”   said psychiatry professor Elissa Epel, Senior researcher. 

It is clear that binge eating sugar damages the cells of the body, all bingeing is causes by an emotional experience which triggers the need to binge. Often there are hidden emotional experiences which trigger a brain response to consume a mass amount of food; this may have been formed in childhood or adulthood.

There is good news, researchers have shown that you can have your sugar and eat it too, a diet for bingers is now used in over 10 countries, it allows bingers to eat what they like while de-activating the brain trigger to binge.
