Coping strategies are understandable but not the best way

I promise that as long as any aspect of your life remains unbalanced or your needs are unmet in certain areas, you will use your coping strategies. For those of us who have a disordered relationship with food, I look at food as the trump of coping strategies. And, if we are using food or body-image focus, it means that all our other coping strategies are overwhelmed, and we are pulling out the big guns. Remember, judgement and self-criticism are just other forms of coping strategies, as is the use of food when you are not hungry or not allowing yourself to eat when you are.
