Understanding Binge Eating Disorders
As the newest eating disorder recognized in the DSM-5, binge eating is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition.
Binge eating is characterized by eating large amounts of food in a short period of time with a feeling of loss of control; however, BED is not associated with compensatory behaviors like bulimia nervosa. This cycle causes immense guilt and shame, further fueling these compulsions. Individuals with BED have very low self-esteem, extreme concern with body weight and shape, and embarrassment which causes this disorder to commonly go unnoticed as it is hard for these individuals to seek treatment. BED is actually three times more common than anorexia and bulimia combined.
