Recovery from Compulsive Exercise
Do you exercise compulsively to control your weight? Are you constantly at the gym, out running, or thinking about working out? Are you damaging your emotional, physical or psychological health by trying to get an ‘ideal’ body weight? Do you obsess about burning calories and exercise to compensate for eating food? Find out how AEA members found relief from compulsive exercise.
These are the stories of how some of our members came to find a solution to their compulsive exercise in Addictive Eaters Anonymous. This way of life is available to you, too. We suggest you read these stories of eating disorder recovery with an open mind. Focus on the similarities, rather than the differences. Whatever your problem with food, AEA can help.
