About Binge Eating Treatment

Many of us in the United States overeat more than we would like to. Binge Eating Disorder, though, is characterized by uncontrolled, severe overeating that may not stop when the person is full. Binges can often happen when one is not hungry as well. Unlike Bulimia, excessive food consumption is not followed by purging, fasting, or excessive exercise.

Consequently, those who need Binge Eating help are often overweight or obese. It is most often diagnosed in middle age and can lead to Type 2 Diabetes, High blood pressure and heart disease.

Feelings of guilt, shame, disgust and worthlessness are often experienced once the initial relief that binge eating provides wears off. These strong emotions often incline people to eat alone or hide food. The emotional distress caused by eating patterns often results in more bingeing, which, in turn, often prompts more emotional distress.

Binge Eating Help

Individual and Family Psychotherapy are integral components of Binge Eating Treatment that typically also includes medical care and monitoring, medication and nutritional counseling. Binge Eating Counseling assists in reducing and eliminating binge eating episodes along with maintaining a healthy weight. If coping skills and interpersonal skills can be acquired to counter destructive thinking patterns and emotional instability, the chance of relapse can be significantly reduced.
