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.

  • Hello Charles! I am unsure if you will even remember who I am haha, but this is [name withheld] – I saw you in (I think) 2017 with anorexia.

  • My wife and I felt quite emotional last Monday after our short Zoom session. All three of us hugged. It felt like the end of a relatively short but profoundly enriching journey with you which started in June at your home office on Waiheke Island.

  • Dear Dr Fishman Thank you so much for this website. I have a long history of swinging between bulimia and compulsive over-eating. I am currently a compulsive over-eater.
