Binge eating disorders are the most prevalent and involve uncontrolled eating for short periods of time. While the eating aspect is opposite of those with restricted eating, the lack of control over their eating is similar. Binge eating disorder symptoms include:
- Consuming large quantities of food in short periods of time
- Feeling out of control during binge episodes
- Feeling shame, guilt or disgust about eating too much food
- Eating large portions of food secretly
Binge eating disorders do not restrict calories or purge after eating. Bulimia nervosa combines the act of binging followed by calorie restriction, excessive exercise, vomiting, laxatives, and other purging behaviors.
If you recognize any of these eating disorder symptoms in your own behavior, it may be time to consider getting the help you need. Contact our Earth’s Edge Wellness team to learn more about our Holistic and Virtual healing program to begin your journey to a healthier life and relationship with food.
