Binge-Eating Disorder

What is binge-eating disorder?

Binge-eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States. It's an eating disorder where one has episodes of eating large quantities of food with a feeling of losing control and being accompanied by shame and guilt afterward.

Symptoms of binge-eating disorder include:

  • Rapidly eating your food

  • Eating until feeling uncomfortably full 

  • Eating when you don’t feel physically hungry


Some treatment approaches we use to help you on your binge-eating disorder recovery journey are: 

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

It is possible to recover. There are some tips and tricks that can help provide the support needed to maintain a healthy state of being and resist the temptations to relapse.
  • Admit there is a problem you do not have to suffer alone. 

  • Begin therapy and create a multidisciplinary team including a HAES therapist, HAES nutritionist, and primary care HAES physician. 

  • Understand that no food is moral. Its not good or bad, just food! 

  • Get rid of your scale and stop focusing on your weight, but focus more on how your body feels.

  • Identify your triggers and work towards finding alternatives.

  • Join a support group, such as our Meal Support Group.
