WHAT IS Binge Eating Disorder?
Binge Eating disorder is a serious eating disorder in which unusually large amounts of food are consumed and one feels unable to stop eating. People with this condition regularly and uncontrollably consume large amounts of food in short periods of time. Unlike people with other eating disorders, they do not purge. This is often used as an ineffective coping skill for conditions such as anxiety, depression, and unresolved trauma.
Almost everyone overeats on occasion, such as having seconds or thirds of a holiday meal. But for some, excessive overeating that feels out of control and is a regular occurrence crosses the line When someone has this condition, they may be embarrassed about overeating and vow to stop. But they feel such a compulsion that they can’t resist the urges and continue binge eating.
