Big Binging Brain Quiz Red
Thank you for taking the Bingeing Brain Quiz!
You were found to be RED on the Sensitivity Scale. This means that you struggle constantly with powerful food cravings, painful binging, excess weight and you become exhausted just to hold it together in daily life. You likely feel out of control with food, and have tried all the diets and health fads available. You feel like a complete failure where food is concerned, and have just about given up on ever being in control of your mind and body around food.
Unfortunately, you are in the highest end of the range in susceptibility to overeating and food addiction. This is likely due to a combination of biological and emotional factors. You are naturally predisposed to being addicted – and food is your drug of choice!
A Sensitivity score of Red indicates that;
The natural state of feeling full after a meal no longer exists, you can always eat more.
You never feel satisfied when you are full – it is like you are still looking and longing for ‘something’ to satisfy you.
You have lost control over your food – you feel powerless and helpless, and you feel this powerlessness is your burden to carry through life.
You struggle with being overweight.
You are hoping for a “magic pill” to fix your problems with food.
You struggle with daily food cravings.
You struggle daily with bingeing – you look forward to binges and go to great lengths to source food and keep your binges secret, though you often feel pain and remorse afterwards.
Food and weight issues occupy a lot of your mind – maybe more than you are aware of, or want to admit. You are puzzled and worried about how much food takes up your mental focus.
You live to eat – life will be almost unbearable if you couldn’t eat.
As you are Red on the Sensitivity Scale, it is essential that you understand why your emotions, mind and body seem to be working against your better health.
Your Bingeing Brain is trying to help you, it’s just there is some conflict between it and yourself as to what is actually good for you.
So, understand that there is a major psychological component to overeating and food addiction – not just the physiological addiction created by the foods themselves. It is likely that you have a psychological need to comfort yourself with food and this will be revealed in the BreakFree Eating Program. So, even if being overweight is making you extremely unhappy – food is what your body and mind craves to try to help you feel better!
Believe it or not though, you are very lucky that your addiction is to food. Why is that? Well, apart from being socially acceptable and legal, the amount of food you’re eating, and your weight provide immediate feedback as to where you are emotionally in your life.
All you have to do is look at the scales or feel the tightness of your clothes to understand where you are emotionally – because when your emotions run your life, you eat more, and put on more weight. Your food and weight provide feedback to show when you most need to get back on track and when you need to ask for help.
For you, food is a constant, debilitating, daily struggle. It requires a massive amount of energy and brain power to resist it. The challenges of food addiction are also not helped by the ease of access and constant promotion of food in the media and its central role in almost all social interactions.
There is also a major psychological component to overeating and food addiction – not just the physiological addiction created by the foods themselves. It is likely that you have a psychological need to comfort yourself with food. So even if being overweight is making you extremely unhappy – food is what your body and mind craves to try to help you feel better!
