Could you be Dealing with a Binge Eating Disorder?
Around the world, food is something we use to connect with one another. In Australia, many of our gatherings with family and friends centre around eating. For most, this is fine, but for those who suffer from eating disorders, enjoying food with loved ones can become a struggle rather than a joy. Binge eating is a mental health condition characterised by overeating and large amounts of shame around food, and can have severe negative health outcomes, both mentally and physically.
At Life Resolutions, our compassionate and experienced team is here and ready to help you tackle any issues you may have around food.
Mary Magalotti on Identifying Binge Eating Disorder
An individual suffering from binge eating disorder will often eat to cope with negative emotions or stress. They can feel like they cannot control themselves around food and will often refuse to eat with others.
You might be experiencing binge eating disorder if you have periods where you eat large amounts of food in one sitting, you regularly feel uncomfortably full after eating, and you feel lots of shame after a meal. You may find yourself eating when you are sad or anxious rather than when you are hungry. Binge eating can affect people of any size.
