Binge Eating Disorder Treatment

What is Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States. It is characterized by repeated episodes of eating large amounts of food. Often the episodes may include eating very quickly and/or to the point of discomfort. Feelings of shame, distress, or guilt can occur afterwards and often a loss of control during the episode.
