Our expert says:
I think you need to consult a clinical psychologist because you are seeking comfort from some underlying problems by turning to food. Until you have sorted out what it is that drives you to 'lose control' and also not persevere with a slimming diet, you will never succeed. There are many potential factors that could be making you 'self-destruct' (pressure at work, your otherwise strict control of your life, unresolved problems with being a single parent and all the problems that entails, etc). You are probably suffering from a type of eating disorder and that requires a team approach from a clinical psychologist and a clinical dietitian. Clinical psychologist are listed in the Yellow Pages or you can ask your gp to refer you. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to email@example.com or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. Get professional help so that you can break out of this destructive cycle.
