Recognizing that attempting to recover from compulsive overeating by oneself is futile, asking for help from outside of oneself becomes an essential component of the process of recovery. Many compulsive overeaters seek help from the professional community, whether from their physician, a nutritionist or a therapist. Unfortunately, many professionals do not accept that compulsive overeating is a disease, and they may advise those who consult them to use diets or exercise that the overeater has attempted and failed to sustain because these interventions were not accomplished with adequate support.
