Category: Binge eating disorder

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a serious eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of consuming large amounts of food in a short period of time, often accompanied by a sense of loss of control over eating during those episodes. People with BED often eat more rapidly than normal, eat until feeling uncomfortably full, and eat large amounts of food when not feeling physically hungry. BED can lead to significant weight gain and can increase the risk for obesity-related health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. BED can also have a negative impact on an individual’s emotional well-being, leading to feelings of shame, guilt, and depression.
BED is treatable and recovery is possible with the right support. If you or someone you know is struggling with BED, don’t wait to get help. Learn more about the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for BED in our blog post and take the first step towards recovery today.
