Binge Eating Disorder

Are you embarrassed about how much you eat?

Do you eat in secret, and feel disgusted with yourself after you eat?

These may be signs of binge eating, a disorder that affects adults and teens. It can negatively affect your health, increase depression, and cause significant social anxiety.

What is Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge Eating Disorder is similar to Bulimia Nervosa without the purging behaviors. It involves eating an objectively large amount of food in a short period of time, with the feeling of a loss of control over eating. 

Binge Eating Disorder Signs & Symptoms:

During a binge, a person will eat much more rapidly than normal. They feel compelled to eat large amounts of food despite a lack of physical hunger and they typically eat until they feel uncomfortably full. They often hide food and eat in secret. They suffer from embarrassment, and feel disgusted, guilty, and depressed after a binge. People with binge eating disorder may be normal weight, overweight, or obese, and suffer from significant weight fluctuations. 

Binge eating disorder creates a great deal of shame and guilt and frequently causes low self-esteem. People with Binge Eating Disorder can experience high levels of anxiety and depression. More men suffer from Binge Eating Disorder than from Anorexia or Bulimia.

Physical Problems from Binge Eating Disorder:

There are many physical problems that can develop as binge eating disorder progresses. The person may become overweight or obese, and risk developing type II diabetes. Increased blood pressure, heart disease, joint pain, sleep apnea, and gastrointestinal problems may result from the weight gain.
