Understanding Binge Eating Disorders

Despite its prevalence, many people still struggle to understand what binge eating disorder is, and how it can impact an individual’s life.

Prevalence of Binge Eating Disorder

According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), binge eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States, affecting 3.5% of women, 2% of men, and 30% of those seeking weight loss treatment. These numbers indicate that binge eating disorder is a widespread problem that affects individuals from all walks of life.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

OCD is often mischaracterized in popular culture. It is a common anxiety disorder indicated by recurrent unwanted thoughts and repetitive, compulsory behaviors. For example, obsessing over the presence of germs and washing the hands excessively throughout the day can be a sign of OCD. In this case, washing the hands would provide temporary relief from anxiety, but the habit may be so frequent that the skin on the hands begins to crack and peel. When compulsive behaviors—even those with negative side effects—are not performed in a regular ritual, anxiety can spike dramatically.

Impact on Physical and Mental Health

Binge eating disorder can have significant physical and mental health consequences. Physically, a binge eating cycle can lead to obesity, heart disease, and other health problems. Mentally, individuals with binge eating disorder often struggle with feelings of shame, guilt, and low self-esteem. They may also experience depression and anxiety as a result of their binge eating behavior.

Some of the side effects of compulsive eating include:

  • Excessive food intake
  • Skipping meals
  • Weight gain
  • Emotional eating

Misunderstandings About Binge Eating Disorder

Binge eating disorder is still widely misunderstood. Many people assume that binge eating is simply a lack of willpower or an inability to control one’s eating habits. However, binge eating disorder is a complex condition that is rooted in a variety of emotional and psychological factors, not just your eating habits.

Our Approach to Helping You Stop Binge Eating

Dr. Julia understands that everyone’s journey to overcoming binge eating is unique. That’s why our approach is tailored to each individual, combining the latest in research and technology with the care and compassion of a trained therapist.
