Counseling for Binge Eating Disorder – Counselors and Therapists in Peachtree City.
It is estimated by experts that 12.75 million people in the US suffer from a binge eating disorder (B.E.D.). A huge amount of people are suffering from this serious condition – despite this fact, B.E.D. is almost unheard of and receives very little media attention. The primary symptoms are easy to diagnose – a complete inability to stop eating, even when completely full. This lack of control will often be followed by feelings of intense guilt, shame and even anger.
The Consequences of B.E.D.
This lack of awareness often causes B.E.D to develop unchecked in many people. When untreated, the consequences build upon each other over time and affect every aspect of the person’s life. Physically they will suffer from obesity, heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes. Psychologically they tend to have social anxiety, fear of eating in front of people and often develop serious clinical depression.
