Binge Eating Disorder (BED)

Binge eating disorder (BED) is characterized by repeated episodes of binge eating in which individuals consume unusually large amounts of food in a short period of time. They often feel they have no control over the amount being eaten and don't know how to stop.

After a binge episode, it’s very common for people with BED to feel physically uncomfortable due to extreme fullness. They also often experience feelings of shame, guilt, or self-loathing after an episode. If you or someone you love is struggling with symptoms like these, our team can help.

Warning Signs

  • Eating unusually large amounts of food in a specific amount of time
  • Feeling as though your eating is out of your control
  • Eating rapidly during binge episodes
  • Often eating alone or in secret
  • Eating until you feel uncomfortably full
