Life Resolutions Psychology-Identifying Binge Eating Disorder
Could you be Dealing with a Binge Eating Disorder?
What we call eating disorders are a pattern of harmful thoughts and behaviours around food. Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, all of which can cause shame, mental health difficulties and poor health outcomes.
Binge eating can affect people of any age, gender, and body type. It is sometimes seen in conjunction with other disorders such as anxiety and depression and can be bought on by difficult or traumatic events or circumstances in one’s life.
At Life Resolutions, we are committed to helping clients repair their relationship with food and get back on the path to wellness.
Mary Magalotti on Identifying Binge Eating Disorder
It can be challenging to assess whether you are suffering from a binge eating disorder because sometimes, everyone overeats. For someone with binge eating disorder, overeating becomes a constant method to cope with stress and negative emotions and is likely to cause the individual lots of shame. There are some signs to watch out for:
- Do you often eat well past the point of being full, or have trouble telling when you have had enough to eat?
- Do you eat when you are feeling sad or anxious instead of when you are hungry?
- Do you avoid eating around others because you feel ashamed?
- Do you sometimes feel like you cannot control what or how much you eat?
- Do you feel angry or disappointed with yourself after eating?
