Our expert says:
Your weight is indeed morbidly and critically obese with a BMI of 52.4. If you read the articles I have written about binge eating disorder, you must have noted that I recommend that patients should get assistance from a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist for the psychological problem(s) that is/are making them self-destruct. Once progress is being made with helping you to take control of your life again, then you need to consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area) to guide you with applying a balanced weight reduction diet. So the first step is to consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist or if you are in Gauteng then it may help to contact Tara Hospital as they have an Eating Disorder clinic (phone (011) 783-2010. In Cape Town and environs you can contact the Kenilworth Clinic (021) 797-1400 and in KwaZulu Natal there is Riverview Manor (033) 701-1911, or contact them on: www.riverviewmanor.co.za
