Simply stated, Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the consumption of excessive amounts of food within a limited time period. This type of disordered eating has elements of feeling out of control; the inability to stop eating as well as controlling how much is eaten. It’s a serious health concern because it can lead to a number of major health-related problems such as obesity, diabetes, and other inflammatory disorders.
Eating Too Much Too Fast
Binge-eating episodes may be planned in advance or happen when a person eats more rapidly than normal and feels uncomfortably full. Another common behavior is eating large amounts of food when there’s no physical sensation of hunger. Often with developed BED, one chooses to eat alone to avoid embarrassment with regards to the amounts and type of food they’re consuming.
