There are many different symptoms that could indicate Binge Eating Disorder. Primarily, you might have the urge to consume food without any control – even when you are completely full. More often than not, you will suffer from fear, anger and even shame after eating. If you have experienced these symptoms, you might have Binge Eating Disorder (B.E.D). However, you might find it surprising that you certainly aren’t alone. It is estimated that between 2%-5% of the US population suffers from B.E.D.
Untreated B.E.D – It Will Impact Your Life.
There are many different psychological and physical implications of leaving B.E.D. untreated. These problems also tend to build over time and become more difficult to manage as the years go by.
