Binge Eating Disorder

Sprout Health California can help you get over your binge eating disorder.

Binge Eating DisorderBinge eating disorder occurs when a person eats a mass amount of food at a rapid pace to the point of uneasiness. After a binge, a person may feel guilty or shameful and induce vomiting; most times, beginning the process all over again. Binge eating is dangerous, relentless and if not treated, can become life-threatening.

Unfortunately, binge eating is not as easy to detect as bulimia because most binge eaters behave normally. In the United States alone, four percent of women and two percent of men are affected by the disorder. The cause of it remains unknown but many believe psychological problems and the pressures of society have some effect on it.

Recognizing the Signs of Binge Eating Disorder

  • Eating a large portion of food in a very short period of time. Portions are distinctly larger than what most people would eat.
  • The person is visibly out of control during an eating frenzy.
  • Eating until they experience physical pain and even when not hungry.
  • The person feels guilty and ashamed afterwards. They may experience bouts of depression.

BED Characteristics

Not every person who suffers from BED exhibits the same behaviors; however, there are certain behavioral patterns to watch out for. Some binge eaters suffer from severe weight loss as well as experience bouts of anger, worthlessness, anxiety and tension. If you or a loved one suffer from BED, do not hesitate to seek help. If left untreated, binge eating can cause harm to your body and even worse, death. Talk to your physician, nutritionist or counselor to help identify the problem and receive solutions.

Finding Meaning in Life

Work with medical professionals to find, not only a treatment for the disorder, but a purpose in life. Studies show that psychologically based disorders can be managed when a person has a purpose and meaning in life. People tend to overlook their shortcomings when there is a larger purpose in life. Seek professional help, protect yourself and the ones you love.
