In brief: Try FAA

Compulsion is part of a spectrum of disorders like OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and in the setting of food, really is related to food addiction.
I would seek professional counseling or get plugged in with an experienced bariatric physician. Another resource to get you started is faa, food addicts anonymous. http://www.foodaddictsanonymous.org/.

In brief: Overeaters Anonymous

Many people try diets, gastric bypass, "medical weight mgmt" programs (severe liquid meal replacement for rapid wt loss), etc.
Many who take these drastic steps gain the wt back over & over. Oa is not a diet club. It is a program of mutual support based on the 12 steps of aa. It is about changing yr relationship w food. "face yr stuff instead of stuff yr face." find meetings & info @ www.Oa.Org.
