Problems, Procrastination and Purging

There is a relationship between problematic relationships, procrastination about unpleasant tasks and the desire to purge and or compulsively overeat.

On this website is an educational tool for overcoming Bulimia Nervosa and Compulsive Overeating.

Here’s how it works: You are faced with multiple stressful situations throughout your days and weeks. If you responded by purging or compulsively over eating, the score is one for each episode.

If instead, you addressed the conflict and didn’t purge or over eat for that episode the score is 0.

Your goal is to have a total score of 0 by the end of each week.

Check out our: Bulimia nervosa & compulsive over-eating worksheet.
