What springs to mind when someone says ‘eating disorder’? Anorexia and bulimia are the most common answers to this question. However, Binge Eating Disorder is actually far more common than these disorders. In women alone, experts suggest up to 5% of the population suffer from B.E.D. Common symptoms revolve around a complete inability to stop eating at meal times, even when completely full. Intense feelings of guilt, anger and shame often follow this experience.
Living with B.E.D.
Left alone, the problems that develop make it very hard to live with B.E.D and they often end up spiraling out of control. Heart disease, diabetes and obesity may develop over time and severely affect the quality of your life. Psychological problems also occur, social anxiety, intense guilt, and hiding whilst eating are all very common. Serious medical conditions like clinical depression also develop frequently.
