You feel out of control, defeated, depressed… those of us who binge eat can easily identify with these feelings. Just the thought of being around certain foods can make us anxious, and we have trouble focusing on what matters most to us.
You’re not alone. Binge eating is the most common eating disorder.
Binge Eating Disorder Often Goes Unrecognized by Professionals
Many women looking to control their weight are simply told to reduce their caloric intake. This oversimplified solution fails to recognize the emotions and feelings of helplessness behind the disorder. In their countless efforts to “stop eating so much,” many women fail and fail again, feeling like a “loser” in all ways but weight loss.
