What is Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a type of eating disorder characterized by recurrent binge eating without the regular use of compensatory measures to counter binge eating. Many individuals with binge eating disorder struggle with emotional eating and experience the effects of stigma from healthcare providers, especially when in larger bodies. Even though individuals struggling with binge eating disorder can have many relatable eating disorder thoughts as those with other eating disorders, they may be hesitant to seek treatment at least partially due to the misperception of their struggles. At Shoreline, we approach care through the lens of Health At Every Size (HAES) and The Body Positive in order to promote acceptance of oneself regardless of body size, as well as, further exploration of underlying contributors to eating disorder behaviors.
