Treatment for Compulsive overeating

Here is what Mayo Clinic says:


Whether in individual or group sessions, psychotherapy (also called talk therapy) can help teach you how to exchange unhealthy habits for healthy ones and reduce bingeing episodes. Examples of psychotherapy include:
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT may help you cope better with issues that can trigger binge-eating episodes, such as negative feelings about your body or a depressed mood. It may also give you a better sense of control over your behavior and help you regulate eating patterns.
  • Interpersonal psychotherapy. This type of therapy focuses on your relationships with other people. The goal is to improve your interpersonal skills — how you relate to others, including family, friends and co-workers. This may help reduce binge eating that's triggered by poor relationships and unhealthy communication skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy. This form of therapy can help you learn behavioral skills to help you tolerate stress, regulate your emotions and improve your relationships with others, all of which can reduce the desire to binge eat.
So they imply the cause is maladaptive behaviors, social impairment, and lack of tolerance to bool. Bull. So I have a borderline personality, and you know how to live in the situations I lived and worked in. The world largely lives in a delusional state. When we realize this, we realize that they are selling a "solution" without being to demonstrate a success record. When we check the success record what do we see? All I can find is failures to the program. What does that tell us? 

OA works for those who can blindly accept and live a delusion. But what about those of us who cannot accept a delusion?
