I have a lot of issue with food. I know how much I should eat but I end up eating way more. Many times I will eat so much that I have to force myself to throw up because I am ill. I literally cannot stop and don't know what to do at this point.
I have gained 40lbs in the last two years. I feel absolutely disgusting I just want to break this habit but it seems impossible. I used to be something I did occasionally now its happening a few times a week.

You should probably see a therapist that specializes in eating disorders.

Sounds a lot like binge eating disorder.

Quote:
Binge Eating Disorder
Binge eating disorder (BED) is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of eating large quantities of food (often very quickly and to the point of discomfort); a feeling of a loss of control during the binge; experiencing shame, distress or guilt afterwards; and not regularly using unhealthy compensatory measures (e.g., purging) to counter the binge eating. Binge eating disorder is a severe, life-threatening and treatable eating disorder. Common aspects of BED include functional impairment, suicide risk and a high frequency of co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
Binge eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States, affecting 3.5% of women, 2% of men,1 and up to 1.6% of adolescents.2

Please go to the link because it has so much more information than I can quote.

I'd suggest talking to a therapist, but it needs to be someone who is familiar with and works with eating disorder patients.

What state are you in? I can point you in the right direction of who to talk to.
