A nonproven detox: I don't know much about this, but my understanding is this is a method advocated by some natural medicine folks of cleansing the body of toxins using exercise, massage, skin brushing, and deep breathing. It is not known to treat or prevent any disease. These techniques cannot remove toxins from the body, but they may make a person feel better by decreasing stress and improving relaxation.

Be nonjudgemental: Binge eating disorder is extremely common among people who are overweight. Patients eat a large amount of food usually until it is gone, with a feeling of loss of control. Often there is underlying anxiety, depression, stress and shame and therapy (either analytical or cognitive behavioral) can be very helpful. It is important to see someone with expertise in this area.
