There are a variety of different eating disorders, bulimia and anorexia perhaps being the most well-known. However, these conditions certainly aren’t the most prevalent, that title would be held by Binge Eating Disorder commonly known as B.E.D. This typically presents with a complete inability to control food intake around mealtimes – even when you are completely full. Often this is followed by strong feelings of shame, guilt, and pronounced distress after eating.
How B.E.D impacts your life.
There are a range of implications if B.E.D. is left untreated. Primarily, there is an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and obesity. There are also psychological developments such as intense clinical depression and social anxiety that often occur in B.E.D patients. One major problem is that all of these elements feed into each other and over time become worse if B.E.D. is left untreated.
